I donâ€™t know if you saw TIME magazineâ€™s recent issue on the 25 most influential American evangelicals, but a pastor named Brian McLaren made the list. I saw McLaren interviewed on Larry King after the issue came out. The more McLaren talked, the more peeved I became. He was absolutely ridiculous in his inability to articulate any conviction on any important issueâ€”except to say that other evangelicals are too hung up on dividing people with their beliefs.
R. Albert Mohler, President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, just reviewed McLarenâ€™s book A Generous Orthodoxy, and gave it the raking-over-the-coals that it deserves. He also comments on the so-called â€œEmergentâ€ church movement and its insistence on a rejection of propositional truth. Therefore, I commend Dr. Mohlerâ€™s essay to you for your enjoyment and edification (see link below).
