Emergent Church Now an Official Structured Movement?

Well, this is certainly interesting. The Emerging church now has a National Director, Tony Jones and a Chairman of the Board of Directors who is none other than – ready for this (drum roll....) – Brian McLaren! And they have previously shunned becoming structured – something they have criticized what they call “traditional” churches for.

Hmmm. I wonder if some are still going to try to claim that Brian McLaren doesn’t speak for them.

You can read more on this at EmergentNo in the post “The Emergent Church Movement Appoints a National Director”.

Holy Cow! Man, they are just getting bigger and bigger all the time! I just thought they were wishy-washy, but now I see they are actually mobilizing. Looks like they might actually take over the "word of faith" movement.

Yea, it is picking up speed. Much of the teaching is unfortunately downright frightening!

In fact, in certain respects it is more deceptive and dangerous.

i am amazed at how little people know about us - get to know us, from us - and not by those who think we are "bad" - after all, is not love the guide?

"is not love the guide?"

ah, yes - isn't that from I Hezekiah 3:16? :)

try this one on for size: we are to speak the truth in love (Eph 4:15).

no truth (John 17:17)? then your love is meaningless...
