“When you enter the land which the LORD your God gives you, you shall not learn to imitate the detestable things of those nations. There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who casts a spell, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. For whoever does these things is detestable to the LORD; and because of these detestable things the LORD your God will drive them out before you.”
(Deuteronomy 18:9-12, NASB)

Old Line Liberal Bridges The New Liberalism Of The Emergent Church In Mystic Spiritism carries the pathetic story about–drop Christian–it’s just “Bad Boy” John Shelby Spong, “a religious Pied Piper, but whether he’s leading his followers to an exciting new reality or heresy is a matter of debate” (Online source). Not for genuine Christians it isn’t. Spong is about as much a Christian as I am a member of Emergent Village. Dr. Walter Martin once said of counterfeit Christians like Spong, “If you can’t tell the difference between fleece and fur, you’re going to lose you spiritual arm right up to the elbow.”

We’re further told in this piece that “Spong, 75, is on a mission to bring God to the godless and revamp Christianity for a new, skeptical generation.” Recognize it, because that’s the exact same “message” of the neo-liberal cult of the Emergent Church. He’s just a bit ahead of the Emerging boys on their journey further into apostasy that’s all. And when we read on we will see just how this fool himself got there, “[The] retired Episcopal bishop calls himself a ‘God-intoxicated mystic’ who wants to delve beneath what he calls the layers of religion and find a faith closer to fact.”

Wake up call to the Rip Van Winkles in the leadership of nearly stupefied $evangelicalism$ – can you hear the vile and vacuous voice of Brian McLaren within that statement? Can’t you hear the hiss of the serpent yet? O and look at the warped “wisdom” Spong has gleaned from his contemplative mysticism: “In so doing, Spong argues against the literal resurrection of Jesus Christ and for a more inclusive form of faith – one in which all religions are seen as a way toward the Divine.”

Well, I have news for you; a dead savior can’t save anybody, and as you can see in Emergent Church: An Emergent Manifesto of Hoping for A New Evangelical Inclusive “Gospel” this is also precisely where the Emergent Church is headed. And know this: By allowing these vipers into your church youth groups I tell you in the Lord that slumbering $evangelicals$ are now pacing their own sons and daughters thru the emerging flames.
