Train Wreck in Aisle 1

I’ve been aware of this summer’s Willow Creek Arts Fest for some time now, I read the flyer with only one eye open knowing it might burn my retinas if I stared too long. Dan Kimball, Sally Morgenthaler, and others were sure to make this a time to further submerge the church into rampant silliness at best, and raging Laodicean apostasy at worst. I cannot express my disdain for the Submerging Church movement as clearly as I wish because words fail me. Just like nothing good is said about Laodicea in Scripture, I cannot find any redeeming quality for such apostasy. That apostasy would take the form of mindless drivel did not occur to me, but that is just smoke and mirrors for the dangerous spiritual road this move takes, and leads others headlong who are not rooted and grounded in the Word down the same hellish path. Lest you think I overstate, just watch this clip. Talk, talk, talk…blog, blog, blog…and they say nothing. It’s like a train wreck in the middle aisle of the church that everyone stares at but no one cleans up…disequalibrium??

About Mary

I have been a believer since 1981. Everything else before that is relatively meaningless. My heart has, from day 1, always been toward the subject of bible prophecy and I have seen the Lord do amazing things in my life through simply studying the Word and applying it to my life. I am a wife, grandmother and work full time in ministry. Life is full, and full of learning curves and seasons.

    I think the real key to the success of the emerging church is Dan Kimball’s hair. Personally, his bright yellow dye job and geyser-like fauxhawk really enhances my “worship experience”.

    Tony – I was thinking the same exact thing…

    oh boy, that was confusing…the bible says Satan is the author of confusion…need I say more? The hair was a welcome distraction. Gee, I wonder how he does it?

    What? That was some smooth backward talk if I’ve ever heard it…Did they say what they should do is what they shouldn’t and blah blah blah…?
