Since 1984, Eric Barger has traveled across the US and Canada presenting his unique mix of teaching and evangelism through “Take A Stand!” Ministries as he speaks at seminars, conferences, churches and Christian schools. As part of Eric’s apologetics ministry, he confronts both culture and the Church as he focuses on the Cults, World Religions, the Occult, Spiritual Warfare, as well as troubling trends and doctrinal issues facing Christians in these last days. His ministry exists “to see the lost saved and the church changed by the power of Jesus Christ.”
Most of us have heard the term “The Emergent Church,” but how many of us can explain what it is and who is in it? How do you define something that in their own words is continually evolving?
Today we are joined by Eric Barger of Take a Stand Ministries to discuss the history and ongoing impact of progressive, emergent theology on the church in America. Has this deception become so entrenched in American Christianity that it is the new normal? And what are the dangers of this emerging theology? Where and when did it start? Check out the podcast for a refresher!
I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel; 7 which is really not another; only there are some who are disturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed! 9 As we have said before, so I say again now, if any man is preaching to you a gospel contrary to what you received, he is to be accursed! 10 For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ. Galatians 1:6-10
