Your boasting is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough? (1 Corinthians 5:6, ESV)

The warped and toxic fruit, as Rob Bell might say, of this Emergent and Purpose Driven new evangelical rebellion against the absolute authority of God’s inerrant and infallible Word in the Bible, whose root is in the apostate Church of Rome, shows that A.W. Tozer was exactly right when he wrote:

The task of the Church is twofold: to spread Christianity throughout the world and to make sure that the Christianity she spreads is the pure New Testament kind.
