THE EMERGING CHURCH, DOUG PAGITT & PROCESS THEOLOGY »

As I begin this piece here at Apprising Ministries I develop further an analogy I heard originally from Chris Rosebrough; The Build-A-God Shop, a venue where you can come in and share the characteristics of the god of your choosing. Then after you place your order, people scurry down to the basement of the store and get […]

GAY WRITER: WE DO WANT TO INDOCTRINATE CHILDREN »

As part of our online apologetics and discernment labors Apprising Ministries been documenting the New Downgrade within evangelicalism, the root of which roughly begins with the charismatic revival as it spreads through the Jesus People/Movement circa early 1970′s out into various denominations and into what became the Fuller Theological Seminary School of World Mission.[1] This is […]

DOUG PAGITT ON ROB BELL AND UNIVERSALISM »

A main focus of this particular online apologetics and discernment work here at Apprising Ministries, has been monitoring and exposing of the Emerging Church,  now upgraded to 2.0 with its newer, more clearly delineated, postmodern Progressive Christian theology. This new, and not improved, progressive/liberal theology—a Liberalism 2.0—is what this sinfully ecumenical neo-liberal cult of the Emergent Church will often refer to under their circus “big tent” […]

DOUG PAGITT AND PHYLLIS TICKLE SET TO INFECT ST. LUKE'S METHODIST CHURCH »

Unfortunately evangelicalism would make the foolish decision to embrace of the sinfully ecumenical neo-liberal cult of the Emergent Church, with leaders e.g. like the unholy trinity of apostates, Living Spiritual Teacher and EC guru Brian McLaren, universalist Emerging Church pastor Doug Pagitt, and his friend Tony Jones, the progressive “theologian in residence” at Solomon’s Porch. This is main reason why the online apologetics and discernment work Apprising Ministries has […]

FOR IT IS TIME FOR JUDGMENT TO BEGIN AT THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD »

By Apprising Ministries correspondent Mike Ratilff of Possessing the Treasure For it is time for judgment to begin at the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God? (1 Peter 4:17 ESV) I was reading my dear brother Ken […]

DOUG PAGITT EXCITED ABOUT INTERFAITH POWWOWS AT SOLOMON'S PORCH »

The online apologetics and discernment work Apprising Ministries has been documenting the growing falling away of the mainstream evangelical community; and I’ve warned you that there is a tsunami of apostasy—pushed along by 1 Peter 4:17 judgments—headed toward the church visible.   Not a few of these judgments have come through evanjellyfish’s foolish embrace of the sinfully ecumenical Emergent Church, headed […]

TIME'S UP BRIAN MCLAREN »

For certain people have crept in unnoticed who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ… These are hidden reefs at your love feasts, as they feast with you without fear. (Jude 4, 12) Heading Toward An Already Foregone […]

DOUG PAGITT AND KEN SILVA »

The online apologetics and discernment work Apprising Ministries has been covering the rise within mainstream squishy evanjellyfish of the sinfully ecumenical neo-liberal cult of the Emergent Church aka the Emerging Church with its quasi-universalism in a new version of Progressive Christian theology under their spiritual circus “big tent” Emergence Christianity. As I explained in Emergent Church: A Diseased Tree the discernment ministry Herescope has some excellent […]

JOHN MACARTHUR ON SOLA SCRIPTURA »

First, it is necessary to understand what sola Scriptura does and does not assert. The Reformation principle of sola Scriptura has to do with the sufficiency of Scripture as our supreme authority in all spiritual matters. Sola Scriptura simply means that all truth necessary for our salvation and spiritual life is taught either explicitly or implicitly in […]

DOUG PAGITT SHOWS HIS CHARACTER »

Critics of online apologetics and discernment works such as Apprising Ministries are under the mistaken impression that someone like myself goes “looking for” these issues I’ve been covering these past 5+ years as Jesus has built this ministry of His Gospel. They couldn’t be more wrong.  What usually happens is I’ll receive an email or message […]
