Biblical Truth Reduced To Taste & Tradition

In his article, Spiritual Consumerism's Upside Richard J. Mouw, president of Fuller Theological Seminary describes the benefits of not just shopping for a new church, but other denominations.

Mouw equates church and worship to a commodity to be consumed. One should be open to taste-test other denominations such as Roman Catholicism. No surprise that Mouw would make such a rommendation as he is "co-chairing, on behalf of the Presbyterian Church (USA), the officially sponsored dialogue between representatives of the Roman Catholic Church and four denominations in the Reformed tradition."

Now the denominational distinctives that once caused men to be burned at the stake for their refusal to deny Biblical Truth are reduced to "traditions".

Mouw is also a signatory of the Yale Proposal, the document sent to the Muslim world to build ecumenical unity. Rick Warren also signed the document.

  1. Revelation 2:21-23 (KJV)

    21And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.

    22Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.

    23And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.

  2. I don't know why I didn't think of this until the other day. We have some old friends that joined a ministry called "Common Ground" which is how to reach out to Muslims and how Muslims and Christianity have things in common. I don't really understand this, but this is what they do. Anyway, I remembered the other day that in Hebrew the word for common is chôl and it means, "unholy or profane". We are called to make a distinction between the holy and the profane. Why are we looking for common ground?
