Brian McLaren finally shows his true colors…

25 Sep

Almost 10 years ago Brian McLaren came out with a book called “A New Kind of Christian.”  It was considered an important work that did much to promote the “emergent” church movement, and it also caused a lot of controversy.  Was McLaren a heretic or a revolutionary?  Well, after years of debate, the verdict is officially in.  With “A New Kind of Christianity” McLaren shows beyond a shadow of a doubt what he really believes, and it turns out that it has nothing to do with Biblical Christianity.  In fact, H. Richard Niebuhr’s famous description of liberalism applies very well to McLaren’s thoughts: “A God without wrath brought men without sin into a kingdom without judgment through the ministrations of Christ without a cross.”  Kevin DeYoung has done an excellent review of McLaren’s new book that I highly recommend (Part 1, Part 2, PDF).
