There is rejoicing among the angels when even one sinner repents and believes in Jesus Christ. (Luke 15:10) If, for as long as this site exists, just one sinner is led to repentance and belief in Christ with the aid of the material presented here, the purpose of this site has been served.

      Doug Pagitt is a Universalist.

      Sunday, December 23, 2007

      I'm convinced of this. Listen to the following two interviews, use Scriptural, sound discernment, and you will come to that conclusion, too, if you don't already. I'm thankful that God placed it in Ingrid Schleuter, Todd Friel, and Bob DeWaay to bring this to light.

      Part 1

      Part 2

      HT: Way of the Master Radio

      You can listen to the debate Pagitt had with Bob DeWaay here:

      After listening to all of the interviews (+ the John MacArthur one on yoga) I am getting a better idea of this movement. The only 'emergent' book I have read is Donald Miller's "Searching for God Knows What".

      A couple of things I noticed about Mr. Pagitt and the movement:

      -Surety and doctrinal absolutes is a suspect thing

      -A denial of the depravity of man

      -Although the leaders may differ in the group regarding doctrine, they can agree on participating with what God is doing in the world (what does this mean?), which tends to mean humanitarian and social improvements.

      -While seeming to deny being a universalist himself, Doug embraces and finds beneficial the idea of it being held amongst other emergent leaders, so in a sense, he approves of it.

      -A tendency to dance around giving direct answers by going into philosophical ramblings
      (Doug reminds me of Vince Vaugn)

      -unorthodox interpretations of biblical terms (sin, hell, judgment) and Bible passages.

      To sum it up

      -What is really 'emerging' is a new and different gospel which as Ingrid and Bob said is just a rehash of other new age movements.

      I agree completely. All it is is liberalism with new clothes. In Machen's time, it was called Modernism. Today, it's called emergent.

      Its part of the dictatorship of relativism. Protestantism itself created this regime. This is its bitter fruit.

      If that's true, why is it that the emergent cult cheerfully embraces so much of Romanism and only seems to have a problem with and set itself up against those who hold to the doctrines of grace? Think about it.
