Emergent Quote of the Day

"[I]n the world we live in now, facts alone are not adequate. They never were. And the artists, poets, prophets, contemplatives, and mystics among us have been witnessing to this from the margins for a long time. Artists and poets and others in our midst are in tune with the collective, intuitive, and spiritual. They have honored and then honed their senses and intuitive capacities in a way that allows for a radical engagement with the environment, with reality, to reflect, respond, and create something that is true and vital and defining. They are leading us somewhere." -Tim Keel, An Emergent Manifesto of Hope
Uh-huh, they're "leading us somewhere" alright. These "mystics" and "contemplatives" and "prophets" are leading people wandering down a path that leads away from the true God.
For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. 2 Timothy 4:3-4
Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons, through the insincerity of liars whose consciences are seared[...] 1 Timothy 4:1-2
