Strolling towards universalism

Well, Brian McLaren is at it again. Not that it should surprise anyone familiar with his inclusive and unbiblical idea of “Christianity.” Last week his latest book, “Why did Jesus, Moses, the Buddha, and Mohammed cross the road?” was released, and it looks like it will be more of the same.

The emergent church leader said in a promo video for the book, “My answer to the question Why did Jesus, Moses, the Buddha, and Mohammed cross the road is simply, this: To get to ‘the other.’ In other words, everything we know about Jesus, Moses, the Buddha, and Mohammad, tells us that—if they were here today—they would be trying to lead us into an encounter with the other where, instead of killing one another, and hating one another, we would discover one another. As all God’s children…”

Stand Up for the Truth has more about Mclaren’s latest pluralistic work and quotes from many well-known authors/teachers who are promoting (as well as a link the relevant Fighting for the Faith podcast).

About Julia

Here's what you might like to know about me. My name is Julia and I'm a Christian. I love the Bible and, much less importantly, a good steak. My goal with this site is to share the truth of scripture with believer and non-believer alike, and to specifically encourage believers to study and know the Bible, and warn them of false teachings in and around the church. Romans 1:16-17 "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, the just shall live by faith."

    Strolling? More like running full speed….

    Perhaps careening would have been a better verb. Seriously though, I think you and I see this as running/flying, but I worry that for many people this is a slow meander they barely notice.
