More on the National New Church Conference 2008

Ingrid Schlueter of Slice of Laodicea and CrossTalk America sheds more light on the National New Church Conference:

It was a brilliant strategy: Get an arterial system to thousands of evangelical churches in America established through the Purpose Driven campaigns. Develop thousands of pastor-followers of Rick Warren. Then move from the circus church/seeker church model to the ultimate goal, the emerging church with Rick Warren as Pied Piper.

When you look at the contents of the plenary sessions, it’s plain where all of this is going. Note especially the “spiritual disciplines” that are a key component addressed in the sessions. That’s the contemplative spirituality we’ve been warning about for years.

  1. I just want to say that it is great to see brilliant blogs like yours on Blogger. This Emergent / Purpose Driven stuff is quite scary: I feel like watching an episode of Startrek when it comes to some of the belief systems that find themselves there. I mean the things promoted in these venues are scary when I think of the people who are being indoctrinated by such materials instead of getting to know (and coming to saving faith) the True Gospel which is in Jesus Christ's pre-existence as the second person of the Tri-unity, virgin birth, life, resurrection, ascension and glorification. Some believers are being duped and misled by being swayed into believing that this is the way to follow Christ, or be a 'Christ follower'. I truly believe that this is the beginning of the 'Great Falling Away' that is described in Scripture! It has to happen, and it is out of our hands as far as the event is concerned, but we have a responsibility toward the Gospel and WARNING people about this. We also need to be on our knees (HEAVY ARTILLERY)
    I hope I have made sense in this spiel!
    I am praying for you and what you do here!
    In Him Who is and Who was and Who is to come

  2. I DO have to ADD to my previous post, and am sure you understand this...
    I said: "Jesus Christ's pre-existence as the second person of the Tri-unity, virgin birth, life, [DEATH], resurrection, ascension and glorification". I had to add this, because it is important! (especially at Passover Time)
