    now that made more sence to me understanding what emerging churches are. I'm positive we aren't part of a church like this.

    OK I understood the postmodern part of the guys video, but I wasn't sure if he was favoring "The Way of the Master" or not, he lost me there.

    SolaSaint, I had the same quandary - I don't know what he espouses - Tim's fiction, or if he believes that Ray's method works.

    I believe that Ray's method works to a point.....but you must follow through, not just leave someone to find their way to a doctrinally sound church. They might end up in a cult church which clothes itself in a Christ-like image, but does not preach Christ as God or Christ as the only way. I do support the ministry, though.

    Poor illustration. the difference between an object(i.e. car) and a belief,philosophy, or doctrine(emergent church, fundamentalism) really does not do justice to give understanding.

    This was not even a good use of evidentialism
