As this online apologetics and discernment ministry (OADM) Apprising Ministries continues monitoring Intel along the Internet front of this war against error it’s impossible not to notice a New Downgrade No Controversy.
Briefly, what I mean by the term is first of all an attempt to harken the Christian back to what became known as the Downgrade Controversy. In a nutshell, this involved Charles Spurgeon and his battle against liberalism.
Today in the heart of the Christian community we see a new form of liberalism advancing deeply into mainstream evangelical territory. Instead of marshalling a fight, tragically, we’re actually witnessing its leaders embracing it.
Hence the New Downgrade has no controversy; rather e.g., we’ve witnessed James MacDonald use his Elephant Room 2, which he convened with his co-host Mark Driscoll, to mainstream reputed modalist T.D. Jakes.
If anything illustrates the generation in which we now live it would be a bowl of Jell-O; sweet, but with no real substance. Hence we’re witnessing a growing syncretism slithering throughout the visible church.
A syncretism so broad that now we see things like Leading Southern baptist Attempting To Reverse The Protestant Reformation and Louie Giglio, Passion 2013, And Jesus Culture. With this in mind I now point you to:
Today Ken will give us some background on how Apprising Ministries got started, comment on modern day christian worship, the emergent church’s impact on today’s church, the connection b/w the word faith / seeker driven movement among many other topics.
We hope you are blessed, let’s listen in.
