The Emerging Church is Coming
by David W. Cloud
This video series, which is packed with graphics and video clips, is a thorough examination of the emerging church. This is a name that describes a new approach to missions and church life among some “evangelicals” for these present times.
Nothing has made us more conscious of the vicious battle that is raging for the very life and soul of Bible-believing churches than the research into the emergent church. It is frightful, because so many are falling into devil’s trap and so many more will doubtless fall in the coming days. At the same time, it is exciting, because it reminds us that the hour is very, very late and we need to be busy in the Lord’s service and always “looking up.”
The presentation is based on extensive research, including the reading of approximately 100 books on this movement, visits to emerging congregations, and attendance with media credentials a large emerging church conference sponsored by Zondervan and InterVarsity Press. In reality, the emerging church is simply the latest heresy within the broad tent of evangelicalism. When the “new evangelicalism” swept onto the scene in the late 1940s with its bold repudiation of “separatism” and its emphasis on dialogue with heretics, the door was left open for every sort of heresy to infiltrate the “evangelical” fold, and that is precisely what has happened.
The Bible does not warn in vain, “Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners” (1 Corinthians 15:33).
OUTLINE: I. The Emerging Church Is Coming. II. A Great Blending and Merging. It is difficult to draw a strict line between the two streams of the emerging church, because there is a blending and merging going on that will cause all lines to be blurred eventually. III. The Liberal Emerging Church. IV. The Conservative Emerging Church. V. The Shack: The Emerging Church’s False God. VI. How Will the Emerging Church Come to Fundamentalist and Independent Baptist Churches?
