Since I’ve been sharing these with my friends on google reader and since a commenter pointed them out yesterday as well, I commend to you the NEXT! series over at Team Pyro (written by Dan Phillips). 

Here’s my favorite one: 

Challenge: I think you can make the Bible mean anything you want.

Response: So, you’re saying that the meaning of the Bible is objectively fixed and crystal-clear?



Rob Bell at the Seeds of Compassion Event

Thanks to Chris at A Little Leaven for making these videos available for viewing. Ken Silva also has the transcripts available on his page via Rick Freuh. Thanks guys for both your perspectives and for doing some leg-work here. Read the rest of this entry »


This is the best blog post I have ever read…

Tim Challies writes the best paragraph on Emerging/Emergent that I have ever read.

Kudos, Tim.

Allow me to add to Tim’s “you may be emergent if” list.

1. You love Jesus but hate what Paul has done with his teachings.

2. You pray the rosary even if you aren’t a Catholic.

3. You listen to Bruce Springsteen to receive sacramental grace.

4. You have a coexist bumper sticker on your fuel efficient, foreign vehicle.

5. You use phrases like “platonic dualism” with your church members. Actually, you don’t believe in church membership; you just choose to live in covenant community.


Emerging Soteriology on WOTM Radio

So yesterday, I read this over at Christian Research Network and noticed that Doug Pagitt had been on the Way of the Master Radio program.

If you are interested, you can listen here.


“A Little Leaven” Reports: “Me-centered Church”

Chris Rosebrough reports that a certain “pastor” says something like this in regards to finding a new church: “If the service is longer than 71 minutes, you probably should find another church.”

Who’s focusing on the superficial and peripheral now? Certainly not those rigid fundamentalists…

This is a must read!

Dr. MacArthur on McLaren…

Pastor Ken Silva of Apprising Ministries brings this story which includes an audio interview of Dr. John MacArthur.

Brian McLaren continues to attack the body of Christ by infusing toxic venom into her bloodstream. After being asked a simple question concerning eternal destinations, McLaren responds,

“I have a problem with people asking me this question, because it assumes that the primary reason of Jesus coming and the primary message of Jesus was a message of how to get to heaven.


Hollywood and God…Ray Comfort

I saw this piece over at Slice of Laodicea. Ingrid links to a new Ray Comfort clip in which Ray asks professing Christians about movies and blasphemy. Take 5-6 minutes, watch this clip, and then be ready to be very convicted.
