"Christians" Who Try To Poke Holes In Sola Scriptura
There are a number of the leadership of the Emerging Church (EC) who do not believe that the Bible is the highest authority for the Christian faith. Most do not believe that the Bible is inerrant in the original manuscripts and many do not acknowledge that the Bible is our highest revelation. Yet this is a core doctrine over which true believers and false brethren must separate. Those who try to poke holes in Sola Scriptura make excuses like (1) we need to reinterpret the Bible through the lens of postmodern culture and religion (2) the Bible never uses the words "Sola Scriptura" therefore it is not a Biblical concept (3) there is new revelation for the church through the Holy Spirit apart from what is written and the precepts of the Bible and (4) the Bible just doesn't address our postmodern situation therefore we cannot rely on it for the truth and answers for our problems today. I will prove that all the above arguments, and more, from EC leaders and others is exactly what they are teaching. I will give you quotes from their teachings, videos and books. The postmodern church and its "movements" are abandoning Sola Scriptura in their rush to be like the Roman Catholic Church, which takes its authority from a mix of Scripture and tradition.
"As a result the Church, to whom the transmission and interpretation of Revelation is entrusted, "does not derive her certainty about all revealed truths from the holy Scriptures alone. Both Scripture and Tradition must be accepted and honored with EQUAL sentiments of devotion and reverence." (Roman Catholic Catechism, Given October 11, 1992, the thirtieth anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council, in the fourteenth year of my Pontificate. Page 31).

Featured Discernment Ministry
Lighthouse Trails Research exposes a spirituality often referred to as contemplative spirituality or spiritual formation. This belief system (coming through various avenues including Purpose Driven and the Emerging Church)is introducing multitudes of people and churches to meditative practices that do not originate from the Bible and draws practitioners away from the original intent of Christianity (i.e., to evangelize the world) and leads toward an interspiritual view of God (i.e., all religions lead to God's salvation).

The road back to Rome is being paved by the Emerging Church leadership, who are virtually all classic liberals. Why evangelical churches and organizations would listen to the likes of Brian McLaren and Leonard Sweet is WAY beyond me. Could it be that many formerly conservative Bible-believing Christians have gotten diapraxed and have become liberals themselves?

|Concerns Grow as Moody Presses Forth Down Contemplative Path|
Click here to read this article! by Lighthouse Trails, 6/10/13
As we explained in our May 22nd article, "Moody's Pastors' Conference Teaching Lectio Divina This Week" we have been warning Moody Bible Institute and Moody Radio (owned by MBI) for seven years. Moody has rejected our warnings, has refused to accept our free, non-obligatory copies of A Time of Departing and Faith Undone, and has continued to promote contemplative spirituality.
|by Herescope, 6/13/13 |
Many evangelicals now believe that God sent Noah's Flood to stop the Nephilim corruption of human DNA. From the plain truth of Scripture it is very evident that the "wickedness of man" was very great on the face of the earth before the Flood ...Read Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 & Part 4.

|"Contextualization" of the Gospel - A Free-Falling Catastrophe|
|by Roger Oakland, 6/19/13 |
If Paul had been adjusting (contextualizing) the Word of God to fit the culture and context of the lives of those he spoke to, he would not have said "the aroma of death leading to death." He took the spiritual state of these people very seriously, and he had full confidence that God's Word, unaltered and unchanged, could reach into the heart and soul of any person who would receive Christ by faith. Whether a person is young, mentally challenged, or of a different culture or ethnic group, the Gospel is God's Gospel, and He made it so that all who receive it by faith will understand His love and forgiveness and have eternal life. . . .
