I found a very interesting gentleman's articles online. His name is Peter Jones.
Here is a quote from one of his articles and it's what I've been saying for a long time here - that the emergent conversation is just rehashed liberal Protestantism. I really like the way he put it. Here is a snippet but do read the entire article (it is short) at the link below the snippet.
"Liberal Protestants no longer wave the banner of secular humanism or of atheistic Marxism. They are now spiritually progressive, combining evolutionary theory, geo-politics, medieval mysticism (The Cloud of Unknowing) and ancient Gnosticism (The Gospel of Thomas).
Much of what Progressive Christians believe fits with the principles of the radical Emergent Village, emerging from Evangelicalism. Indeed, Liberal Progressives intentionally include “the more progressive evangelicals” in their ranks. In their descriptions of a “generous way” of “following Jesus” (not Christ, for Christ is far too “Christian”), the “progressives” echo Brian McLaren’s A Generous Orthodoxy, in which he calls himself “a Jesus follower.” They focus on Jesus as a mystical human being for all the religions. This is not Jesus, the God/man and Savior, for their “progressive” religion denies sin, claims no unique means of salvation, and, like McLaren, accepts all: “believers, agnostics, atheists and all sexual orientations and gender identities.”
Here is the entire article.
