The Submerging Church: How the Emerging Church is Drawing Multitudes Away From Biblical Christianity (DVD)
What are Emergent Church leaders teaching that has so many of our current generation tuned into their ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«doctrine,ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´ but tuned out to holy Scripture? How have Emergent leaders captured the hearts and minds of unsuspecting people all over the world, departing from many of the clear teachings, commandments and warnings found in the pages of the Bible?
Often preferred to be understood as a ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«conversationÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´ or a ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«friendshipÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´ rather than a church or organization, the Emergent Church often places a high value on good works and social activism. Many call for diversity, tolerance and camaraderie among all religions and lifestyles as they modify and expand their teachings based on pop culture and social issues. Much of their doctrine rejects systematic Christian theology, the authority of Scripture and gospel exclusivity. Various strands of Universalism have also been subtly introduced, completely denying JesusÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇ own words and warnings. There is often an emphasis on ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«here and nowÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´ theology rather than an eternal reality as set forth in Scripture. Emergent leaders have also opened the door to the New Age and occult, teaching the practice of contemplative, monastic, meditative prayers and mantras, even partnering with New Age mystics, authors and teachers.
Journey with us as we take a closer look at the Emerging Church, its leaders, their teachings and where it is all headed in light of Bible prophecy. If you are familiar with any of the leaders spoken of in this documentary and you love Truth, then you donÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇt want to miss a second of this compelling, thoroughly documented exposÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇ_ uncovering the truth behind the Emergent Church.
