Notes from a Chat Between Andrew Sandlin and John Frame Discussing the Emergent Church

I found this in my Inbox this morning with 
"Cindy, note" as the subject line.

It went online on Andrew Sandlin's blog on February 8th , 2009.

Excerpt from The Emergent:

Dear —-,
Not only do I share your assessment of the Emergent Movement; I am probably more disturbed over it than you are, if that’s possible. Like John Frame stated when I pointed out to him that the EM is similar to the old Protestant liberalism in both’s denial of the infallibility of the Bible, the substitutionary atonement of Jesus, and Jesus as the only way of salvation, “Yes, but the liberals were smart.” These guys tend be be undereducated postmods reveling in a spurious anti-intellectualism marinated in political Leftism and dogmatic about nothing but their own lack of dogmatism. They don’t know what they don’t know.

These are some of my more charitable thoughts of this movement….
