Are Baptists Softening on the Emerging Church?

November 18, 2009

in church, emergent

This one is:

Some critics see the emerging church movement as a heretical compromise with a pluralistic, truth-denying culture. Baptist history might offer an alternative explanation—ecclesiology is more defined by the practices of a Spirit-led community than by assent to the statements of a modern theological meta-narrative. Conversely, the emerging church movement may provide hope for reformation to Baptists ignorant of the difference between modern truths and Truth incarnate.

My comment on Tony’s facebook:

good lord who isn’t softening on the emerging church these days? pretty soon it’s just going to be the pitiful rabid neocalvinists hunting down the heretics…then where will the world be. Woe to us all 😉
