Should a choir director at a public high school be forced to take Christ out of the Christmas music his students perform? That is the topic of a huge debate in Wausau, Wisconsin, where last night there was an emotional public hearing. A little later on we are going to get an update from Julaine Appling, who was at last night’s meeting.
And in our first segment, you probably know about the Emergent Church movement, but did you know that it has shifted into something more insidious than just your garden variety Post-Modernism – which was dangerous enough. The movement started more than a decade ago by a new generation of those who cast doubt on the authority and validity of the Bible, as well as key doctrines that bind all Christians together. Now we have what we call a “Neo-Emergent” movement. Joining us is the author of a brand new book about this titled, Hath God Said? Emergent Church Theology. It’s written by Elliott Nesch, and you may remember that Elliott wrote and produced a must-see video called Church of Tares, which we’ve included here:
Church of Tares: Purpose Driven, Seeker-Sensitive, Church Growth & New World Order:
Church of Tares: Purpose Driven, Seeker-Sensitive, Church Growth & New World Order and The Real Roots of the Emergent Church are two of the many free movies Eliott Nesch has produced, and he also has a passion for reaching the lost through open-air street preaching and prison ministry.
