Classic liberalism. Are the emergent leaders totally unaware of the lessons of the early twentieth century?

Forrest Church, the Unitarian Universalist leader, makes a rather convincing argument that the civil religion of America in inherently universalist. There is much to support that thesis, including universalist/esoteric/gnostic groups, such as Freemasonry, which join together Christianity, Judaism and Islam under the same one "god." This stuff is in the very fabric of our national consciousness. (I'll leave the Mormon/Romney discussion for another time.)

At least we are now seeing what we always suspected--the Emergent movement is about far more than ecclesiology/outreach/mission.

We've been lied to, but the truth is, well, emerging, isn't it?

What an excellent answer you give! Selmanovic writes, "Is the revelation that we have received through Jesus Christ an expression of what is everywhere at all times...." In other words, is Jesus an expression of what is universally true? And the answer, as you say, is no. Jesus is not an example of what is true: he is the truth. John 14:6.

Amy,

I am so glad you have joined the STR blog. Reading your lucid writting is like a drinking a glass of cold water in a hot summer day!

Santos, thank you so much for the encouragement. Thanks for reading.

I agree, I think Amy does a fantastic job!

I would love to see the scripture verse where all paths lead to salvation in the bible. I want to see one example. Unfortunately I think Selmanovic is marching right down the wide gate to destruction.

Acts 16:31
So they said, “Believe on the Lord JESUS Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.

Romans 8-11
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. 10For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. 11And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.

John 3:16
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

John 10:9
I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.

John 14:6
Jesus said, I am the way the truth and the life and nobody comes to the Father accept through me.

These are just a few examples of the many passages that say it is only through Jesus. How much more clear can the Bible be?

I keep wondering what Bible these guys are reading because it surely isn't the same one I read. Instead of offending someone its better to let them perish. Why does this make my head hurt?

They are concerned with offending sinners, but not with offending God! Yikes!

I third that. Amy is the cat's pajamas.

What does that mean?
