READ MORE HERE-- on this interesting subject.

Herescope has an entire series--CLICK HERE-- on the resurgence of the "Social Gospel" via Rick Warren, C. Peter Wagner, Brian McLaren, Peter Drucker, Bob Buford--there are lots of other names you will recognize if you take the time to read these very informative articles.

If you read authors, hear speakers and/or preachers proclaiming similar ideologies, please be informed so you can make you own intelligent conclusions as to whether or not this is all coming from the same place. And don't be afraid to question where these people got their information from. I helps in your reseach.

Just be informed.
