Apprising Ministries has been maintaining that Mainstream Evangelicalism Is Now On The Rapid Slide To Apostasy because of its ongoing embrace of the sinfully ecumenical neo-liberal cult of the Emergent Church aka theEmerging Church with its postmodern Progressive Christian theology, which these rebels against the final authority of the Word of God will often refer to under their silly circus “big tent” as Emergence Christianity.
I’ve told you before that this EC was actually a Trojan Horse containing a full-on semi-pelagian (at best) rebellion against sola Scriptura designed to unload its highly subjective Contemplative Spirituality/Mysticism (CSM) ala Living Spiritual Teacher and Quaker mystic Richard Foster and his spiritual twin Dallas Willard. You can follow some of the corrupting results of this spurious CSM inContemplative Spirituality Growing Within Mainstream Evangelicalism.
One sad effect is EC heroes e.g. Rob Bell opening the door to the mainstream of the visible church for unbelievers like Living Spiritual Teacher and Progessive Christian scholar Marcus Borg. What’s important to note here is that this so-called “Progressive Christianity” Is Neither Progressive Or Christian. No, it’s really just old liberal aka modern theology in some hipper clothes; and this EC cult is itself simply a re-interpreted version of liberal theology, a postmodern theology as an upgraded Liberalism 2.0.
This is critical to understand as we approach the subject of a pet EC issue, affirming that a lifestyle of having sexual relations with another of the same sex, i.e homosexuality, is also a viable one for the Christian. In other words, they’re saying that those in so-called monagamous, and supposedly life-long, relationships with their same-sex partner are not in sin. Now you understand their almost maniacal push for same-sex marriage.
And no doubt these wolves in sheep’s clothing will surely try and get you to focus upon how nice and thick their wool coats appear; but if you can’t recognize the difference between fleece and fur, then you’re in grave danger of losing your spiritual life to these fools. Snakes who are arrogant enough with theirHumpty Dumpty language to defy the Word of God by emptying it of it’s actual meaning and then replacing it with their ear-tickling mythology (cf. 2 Timothy 4:3-4).
