A Discussion of Mysticism...Has it Crept into Your Church?

I caught the last 40 minutes or so of In the Market with Janet Parshall tonight while I was driving home from work (praying all the way that I'd get home before the hail, or worse a tornado, hit). She was speaking with Dr. Ron Rhodes, discussing his article The Emergence of Mysticism in the Emerging Church. It was an excellent topic and a very interesting conversation. If you have some time, I'd recommend that you give it a listen. Remember, not all Emergent churches are blatant with their candles and labyrinths and outright denial of the inerrancy of Scripture. Many of the elements of this emergent movement are flourishing in what most people would perceive to be "conservative evangelical" churches. The most dangerous error is that which is laced with truth, making it all the more difficult to discern. Nevertheless, "a little leaven leavens the whole lump."
