More Church police

Some people just don't get it! This is the cover of Charlotte's Creative Loafing this week. I know there are a lot of stange beliefs out there. I realize a lot of Fundamentalist pastors and churches have blasted the "emerging" church. But I expected a more balanced approach from a secular publication. Read their story about "Postmodern" churches in Charlotte here. Two of the churches that they mentioned are part of two of the most conservative denominations--the PCA and SBC. Both churches are conservative theologically but are reaching a very eclectic group of people. I for one am grateful for what God is doing in their churches. Most of the people they are reaching are not going to step foot in a traditional church. When I saw the cover of the magazine I was angered by the cover. I would have thought the Sword of the Lord would potrait the "emerging" church this way but not CL. I guess I was wrong. Why is it that that when a group of believers try to reach our present culture they get blasted from the church and from the secular media. There is a new Mosaic church that started up near us. They are reaching a lot of the "emergent" group. I for one praise God for what these churches are doing to reach people for Christ. Paul said in Philippians 1:17-18 :
The former preach Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing that they can stir up trouble for me while I am in chains. But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice.
Church police: It is time for you to retire. It is not our responsibility to find out a church's motives. Lets leave that to God. If Christ is preached we should rejoice!

I went and read the aticle before I read your post Cause the cover sparked a sort of interested anger in me. As I was reading I kept trying to find where they were going to say "We dont beilve that you have to have Jesus, just God" But I never saw it. I came back to your post hoping to find out that you would enlighten me as to what these idiots were doing, but it was just a mis labeled cover. They arent Postmodern at all (from what I can tell). To be postmodern they would have to say that there is no absolute truth, wahts right for you might not be right for me.
