More Resources on the Emergent Church

Nicene Creed in Cyrillic

Bill Honsberger from “Nietzsche, the Death of God, and the Emerging Church Movement” (audio):
So while hiding behind the skirts of the creeds, Tony Jones is famous for saying, “Well, I believe in the Nicene Creed and you can’t say that I don’t.”

Well, we don’t know what that means, do we? I mean, if I don’t know what the Bible said 2000 years ago, then why would I know what the creeds meant 1700 years ago or 1600 years ago, or any other creed? How could I know? It’s all interpretation.

So while hiding behind the skirts of the creeds, they’ve attacked the Trinity, hell, Biblical inerrancy concerning homosexuality, substitutional atonement, inerrancy concerning the nature and person of God, etc...

We need to understand how corrosive this stuff is...It is corrosive to everything it touches and it is corrosive to the Christian Church.

Also, additional audio lecture on same subject, an ENMR presentation, available at the Watchman Fellowship website. Similar content but with different application and review of info.

Ravi Zacharias on Emergent Church  ("Were they bored with God?")

After a discussion of postmodernism, the material about the emergent church begins at 11 Minutes into the interview. And Ravi's testimony to follow is beautiful.
