    WINFIELD, Mo. (ABP) -- Thirty years after the Southern Baptist Convention began ridding itself of theological moderates and liberals, a prominent Missouri Baptist layman is warning that the nation's largest non-Catholic faith group now faces a different kind of liberalism from within.

    Roger Moran, research director of the Missouri Baptist Laymen's Association, is printing pamphlets to distribute at the upcoming SBC annual meeting warning messengers about what he views as dangers in a church-planting movement known as the "emerging" or "emergent" church.

    Moran says the movement, which aims to create churches that are culturally relevant to what proponents call a "postmodern" society, is making inroads in Southern Baptist life, particularly in seminaries and the SBC's publishing arm, LifeWay Christian Resources.

    Thanks for posting this.

    I don't think Driscoll is the most dangerous emerging pastor out there, though. I think the emerging movement is a spectrum, but needs watching because parts of it have drifted further away from the Bible.
