What happened to Classical Evangelicalism? Oswald Chambers? Charles Spurgeon? Billy Graham?
I was reading this post: http://highergroundonline.wordpress.com/2008/01/31/evolution-of-the-creeds/ , and feeling very glad that I'm still becoming Catholic. It is a great image of the destruction that happens when you abandon ecclesiology - the doctrine of the Church - (Catholic and Traditional Protestant alike). At least if you're a Baptist you can accept what the Baptist Church has decided and accepted (like the Trinity), if you're Emerging, suddenly everything can be thrown out. I love Rob Bell and lots of self-described Emergents, but I don't like this theological liberalism. In my opinion, when you ask the hard questions of theology you can do one of 5 things:
1. Become a Liberal, doubt everything and have no faith at all.
2. Stop asking questions, reject all philosophy and logic and base everything on feelings and emotions.
3. Become a Presbyterian/Calvinist.
4. Become a Catholic/Orthodox/Traditional Anglican/submit to apostolically succeeding bishops and Tradition and actually believe the catholic faith.
5. Stay Evangelical
