Even "young" folks know crap when they hear it, thank God!

"Why We're Not Emergent: By Two Guys Who Should Be" by Kevin DeYoung and Ted Kluck

DeYoung writes:

"I know that some in my generation have a hard time with truth claims. But I'm convinced that there are just as many of us--Christian and not--in our postmodern world who are tired of endless uncertainties and doctrinal repaintings. We are tired of indecision and inconsistency reheated and served to us as paradox and mystery. Some of us long for teaching that has authority, ethics rooted in dogma, and something unique in this world of banal diversity. We long for Jesus--not a shapeless, formless, good-hearted ethical teacher Jesus, but the Jesus of the New Testament, the Jesus of the church, the Jesus of faith, the Jesus of two millennia of Christian witness with all of its unchanging and edgy doctrinal propositions."

"Emerging Christianity" has a big problem, even if it does ask some good questions; the answers it provides are found in places other than God's word - usually one's imagination or "we" just cannot know Truth with any certainty.

Who do you think benefits from such an approach? God or God's enemy?

God is not interested in confusion, in fact, it is the utter clarity of God's word that offends those in rebellion. That, dear reader, is a timeless Truth - not a mystery.

Love these two guys.

Most of their generation have a problem with truth.

Well said.
