Q & A about “Emergent”

Not a new video.  And it may have made the rounds several times.  Nevertheless,  it presents a great albeit brief defining perspective on the terms “post-modernism” and especially the theological movement often referred to as “Emergent.”  The panel includes, left to right, Ravi Zacharias, Al Mohler, and R.C. Sproul.

Post-modernism is a societal, cultural and intellectual trend that has been forming and manifesting itself for decades, and not a new discovery, although its name may have been more recently assigned.  In retrospect, it might well have been fully predictable even from centuries ago based on mankind’s inherited sin nature and our fundamental rejection of authority, especially as relates to absolute truth.

The dangerous thing about the Emergent Church Movement, is that, unlike orthodox Christianity, it seems to encourage rebellion from truth which ultimately leads to death.  All for the sake of celebrating diversity and inclusiveness.  For all the generosity and permissiveness of their doctrine, the Emergents are merely applying a salve of ignorance to an ultimately fatal condition.  But it is a fatal condition that is otherwise treatable and curable by the application of that which may be uncomfortable, but life-giving…The Truth!
