Fourth, emergents have become disillusioned by the clay feet of church leadership. It is not just the Jim Bakkers and the Jimmy Swaggarts, but the rank and file of church leadership.

Emergents compare what Jesus had in mind and what is going on in churches, and they see a need to start over. They want a fresh start with serious intent to follow Jesus.

finally! geesh took long enough...

but the trouble is they will never start fresh, because of centuries of defining what the bible says. there is no way anyone of these emerging xtians is going to stray too far from common theologic doctrine.

its too late.

what needs to be done is to delete all that is not directly (alledgedly) from the mouth of J. I forget what the final count is, but I think its only a few pages...not much...

all the other filler and the centuries of theologic philosophic explanations and apologetics are so ingrained in not just the religious sects, but in truth western culture.

a good part of the american myth (some good, most bad) is wrapped up in xtian allegory that I doubt this new movement is going to eradicate the negative influences any time soon.
