In this final session of the series Eric recaps and draws us to the only conclusion possible for biblical thinkers - that the Emergent Church movement really isn't Christianity at all. He summarizes that those leading this Postmodern redefinition of Christianity have taken the movement perilously outside the boundaries of orthodoxy into blatant apostasy endangering the eternal life of any who follow them. Instead of continuing in the faith as Paul exhorted his son in the faith, Timothy, to do, the Emergent movement has dismantled historic Christianity, left the Bible without doctrine or context, and inspired a spirit of rebellion among its followers. For authentic Believers, our task remains to lovingly refute and correct error and then to teach the truth whenever possible to a lost and corrupt world - including those who claim to be "Christian" inside the Emergent heresy.

In part three of the series Eric outlines the warnings from the Apostle Paul of diverging away from authentic, biblically sound doctrine. This message includes many quotes from Emergent leaders illustrating the very problem true Christians face in these last days. Eric also points out one of the core issues - Emergent leaders continually describe themselves and what they advocate as "Evangelical." The action needed here is "test everything" (I Thess. 5:21-22) matching all teaching against the one and only true Gospel (Gal. 1:8-9).
This week Eric sheds more light on definitions as it becomes more obvious that Emergent thinkers use many terms familiar to Christians - but have attached radically different meanings. He also discusses the experience of attending a three day conference featuring the man known as the god-father of the Emergent movement, Brian McLaren. Listen to hear and be warned about the apostate and heretical Emergent redefinition of Christianity.
Eric's most requested seminar teaching for conferences and churches! This week Eric Barger, defines the roots of this unbiblical movement which has swept through evangelicalism. Learn from Scripture as Eric outlines both the need and the command we have to "test everything." Pulling no punches, Eric warns that just as with the many other cults which has devastated and eternally destroyed millions, the Emergent Church found its genesis inside Christendom through captivating teachers and unsuspecting followers who either didn't know or didn't care about the Scriptural admonition to abide by the tried and true doctrines which ARE Christianity.
