Today we’re covering everything from the Boy Scout’s decision to cave to the left, a surprise announcement from the Pope that even atheists are saved, to a mysterious mega-money request from Emergent guru Brian McLaren, to some new information about Spiritual Formation – the latest trend that is leading a huge number of seeker-friendly churches into a man-made, and dangerous version of the biblical sanctification Jesus tells us of.
A little later on we will also share the heartbreaking story of an elder of a major seminary and church in Ohio. For 25 years he was a leader in this mainline Evangelical organization – until this year when he tried to warn his colleagues and pastors about the real truth about the Spiritual Formation speakers and curricula in his own church. He was kicked out for raising his hand. And we’re also going to hear from watchman Eric Barger a little later on. Eric’s Take A Stand! Ministries confronts both the culture and the Church, focusing on the troubling unbiblical trends and doctrinal issues facing Christians.
