I ran across a link at tallskinnykiwi and thought I’d link them over here. “Dr Ken Meeks has been examining the Emergent church movement in light of the accusations from Calvary Chapel. He is not speaking from an emerging church standpoint but from a Bible College teacher.” Is emergent heretical? There is a discussion on pluralism vs inclusivism and this one as well. which I thought very good… I hadn’t really thought through the differences before.
There is much more there, and I look forward to him finishing his series in answering this question. I think the church tends to throw around the “false teacher” and “heresy” and “apostasy” words a little too freely, without really understanding or thinking through what they are accusing.
Anyway, I’m off to bed, Bryan is working a double shift, and I need sleep to get up at 5:30 – I am liking this!! maybe I’ll continue after LENT!!
