while doing some late night surfing before bed, i found this post on god-of-small-things about the emergent church thing.
strange as it may seem, i sort of agree:
'...the emergent movement mistakes ambiguity for a virtue.
The problem with modernity isn't certainty--it's pride. Pride in human accomplishment that blinds whole societies, and allows people to do imhumane and monstrous things because they are absolutely convinced of the rightness of cause.
But the world doesn't need ambigious Christian. It needs humble and generous Christians, who accept each other's shortcoming, and who live their lives in service to their God and to their neighbor.'
