Skip to comments.Tough road for Republicans w / Emerging Church Christians
Posted on 04/24/2007 10:55:22 AM PDT by ktupper
Over the last few months, I've noticed a definite shift in attitudes among many of the Christian forums and blogs I read and with many of my friends.
The emerging church movement (for lack of a better term) is making strong in roads into what was once a lock vote for the Republicans.
It seems many are looking at areas of social justice, the war, etc...as much as abortion. The discussion is that a lot of these people who always formerly voted Republican will vote for someone like Obama.
The problem is many of them are conservative with respect to issues, not with respect to political philosophy. I've tried amongst my friends to stress that a government solution is usually far more costly and often doesn't work...but to no avail.
Is anyone else experiencing this?
They’ll come around when the Bush tax cuts expire, but then it will be too late.
What is an “Emerging Church Christian”?
Is that the new code word for Cafeteria Catholic and the like?
code word for “new age” which means christianity without christ......
No, it means they’re paid for by soros
i see you were a tin can sailor.......
“It seems many are looking at areas of social justice, the war, etc...as much as abortion.”
Sounds more like a social gospel. Those people haven’t been in the Republican Camp for quite some time.
Obama takes the most extreme and evil position imaginable on this issue. How could these endorse such a man using a Christianity as a justification?
Hillary and her ilk have had a plan to pick these out of the GOP for a long time and this election they unfortunately might do it.
Still am, until July 31st.
Hard to explain what an Emerging Church Christian is as they’re all over the map.
Here’s a start.
Many “members” of the emerging “church” (funny terms since many advocate that church is toxic) are post-modernists. By definition, they do not believe in Truth (each person can have his own “truth”). When they have no Truth, it is easily to go whichever way the wind blows.
Emerging Church = Apostate Church
Hey did you see that segment on Soros and how he gets his money out to liberal organizations on the O’Reilly Factor? Looked like how the Mafia use to do it.
Because abortion is decreasing in importance for these people, who are mostly bluer-collar workers (not necessarily laborers but not in higher positions.) They will buy the government-solution propoganda, and when they start to hear the Dems start to quote from the Bible they will buy what they are saying.
The EC movement is greatly influenced by secular postmodernism. So yes, I have experienced it since the movement first gained steam. They have no real standard, other than subjective feelings, and tend to be shallow thinking.
These are the Christians the poster is talking about.
