More misrepresenting…. Did they even listen to the report?

More misrepresenting…. Did they even listen to the report?

This was the quote as given by Christian Research Network or CRN.

“We did everything except shoot Jesus out of a cannon, you know, in order to be hip and cool, right.” Followed by Wrong very wrong…

But the line after this was “But after a while we thought… why don’t we just be ourselves?”

The way CRN presents this is that John Musick was promoting shooting Jesus out of a cannon… but John was stating that entertaining people to come to church was not working (by a bit of an exaggeration)… and that to be authentic and real is better… so… the question then is…

Why does CRN think it wrong to be an authentic and real Christian?

You can read their twisted version of truth here.

Then watch the video yourself from their own website!

Why do I stay with the emerging church? Because I have found that the emerging church holds truth more highly than these so called watchblogs who twist things to their own version of truth and hold no real regard for the truth they claim to be fighting for. Time after time I have pointed to he hypocrisy, lies and hate.

Ken Silva, why do you keep reporting lies? Could it be the Truth is not in you? Do facts mean nothing to you and your posse of judgmentalism? I only see the scripture being fulfilled in CRN... 1 Tim 1:7-11 They want to be teachers of the law, but they do not know what they are talking about or what they so confidently affirm. We know that the law is good if one uses it properly. We also know that law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious; for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers, for adulterers and perverts, for slave traders and liars and perjurers--and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine that conforms to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which he entrusted to me.

So keep preaching the law... for I see it is not done with you yet.

Titus 3:9

Rick,

Funny thing is that most the time I do not try to even find these things... I am out reading on an emerging site like Next-Wave, and notice a link... so I click and it is CRN with their latest "report".

Then as I read it I see the error...


If I wanted to i could easily write a "report" that would be true and accurate and showed the errors (and I have) of the emerging church. Yet, being on the inside I see that most of "these who hold error" are Gnostics who are attracted to the emerging church... which was the problem of the early church also which should make one think. Maybe the message we teach is pretty much what the early church was teaching so we have the same problems.

We also are attracting the fringe people who do have alternative lifestyles that mainstream Christianity just most often do not accept. We allow the Holy Spirit to work in the person to change them on the inside out as opposed to much of the "abusers" like CRN who teach a new form of self righteousness Judaisation. Meaning these people are just modern day Judiazers. They want all to conform to the fleshly regulations along with the Spiritual. They need a good dose of Galatians to remedy their ill.

I really do hope to start getting back to what i want this blog to be and that is more of a teaching/idea blog. Yet, I guess in a way the blog is about exploring one's faith in the postmodern age... and this is part of it... I must say that I would rather be persecuted this way than how the saints of old were.
