How far is too far in the Emerging Church
How far is too far? The Emerging Church seeks to change everything but on what grounds?
Because the Bible is out of date?
Because we are in a time where people supposedly think differently than before hence we need new rules?
Because it’s too difficult to understand?
Because there are things that God commands you not do and you don’t like that because that means changing your worldly ways or?
It is because you/they really don’t like Jesus Christ the Son of God and therefore secretly have to change the Bible hoping no one will notice?
Is it because this is one big science experiment to see how far they can push the boundaries of God’s Word to see if man is capable of coming up with their own rules hence replacing God.
But let’s say that Brian McLaren got his way and everything changed. Everything has now changed, what is left, what exactly are we left with?
By what standards are we left to know what is right from wrong, good from evil. There are no more Godly Christians standards, we only have man made standards…
What is the new definition of a GOOD person?
and while we are at it…
What is the new definition of a BAD person?
and where does all of this leave Sin and repentance of sin?
Some verses regarding God’s Word taken from God’s Word:
Trying to change God’s Word:
Every word of God is pure; he is a shield to those who put their trust in Him. Do not add to His words, lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar.
For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
Sin is Good, Darkness the NEW light:
20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
12 “They make night into day, saying, ‘The light is near,’ in the presence of darkness.
35 “Then watch out that the light in you is not darkness.
