A “Shift” Is Coming

Check out this interesting post from SliceofLaodicea.com:

"Please note the similarities between Emerging author/speaker Brian McLaren’s campaign and message and that of this cadre of outspoken New Spiritual/New Age teachers and leaders. Such New Age luminaries as Marianne Williamson, Dennis Kucinich and Deepak Chopra are featured on this short film, The Shift. (Note the title.) Brian McLaren’s site is called DeepShift.org. They’re all about a shift into a new paradigm."

Here’s a quote from the Shift movie website.

"We are in the middle of the biggest social transformation in human history, The SHIFT. At this critical point, it is imperative we make the masses aware of this global movement quickly. This evolutionary phenomenon is broader and deeper than the most visible SHIFT, the environmental movement. It involves our very understanding of who we are as human beings, and our responsibility to the world and to life itself."

Now let’s shift to McLaren’s website where he says the following:

"We Are in Deep Shift.

A time of transition
rethinking
re-imagining
and re-envisioning

A time for asking new questions
and seeking answers
that are both new and old
fresh and seasoned
surprising and familiar…"


Brian McLaren, Marianne Williamson and company sound alike because they’re working on the same team. They are the heralds of the coming cosmic christ, a christ alien to the Scriptures and one who is at war with the Lord Jesus Christ. Those who are wise will see this and help warn others of these prophets of anti-Christ.

Brian McLaren, when questioned about his own purpose in life said, “This is how I feel when I’m offered a choice between the roads of exclusivism (only confessing Christians go to heaven), universalism (everyone goes to heaven), and inclusivism (Christians go to heaven, plus at least some others). Each road takes you somewhere, to a place with some advantages and disadvantages, but none of them is the road of my missional calling: blessed in this life to be a blessing to everyone on earth.” Proverbs 25:14, says, 'Whoever falsely boasts of giving Is like clouds and wind without rain.' I can't fathom those who say they can bless others when they deny the only human ever know to have conquered death. Isaiah 45:21 Tell and bring forth your case; Yes, let them take counsel together. Who has declared this from ancient time? Who has told it from that time? Have not I, the Lord? And there is no other God besides Me, A just God and a Savior; There is none besides Me.

Some think the evangelicals sowed the seeds of the emergent/emerging church.

I hope somehow a new evangelical church sows seeds to deal with it in a way that they will listen.

This guy is a misguided elitist, leading people astray. It's that simple. I don't know why anyone gives him the time of day; he's got NOTHING to offer me: he doesn't know where he's going, or how to get there even if he knew, and claims to be on an eternal trip to the land of wherever. How pitiful that evangelicals spend precious time to dialogue or give any credence to this empty suit.

Heretic? maybe.. but isnt
"...prophets of anti-Christ"
a little harsh?
I totally agree with your comments on "prosperity" ministries,
but i'm about 2/3 through "secret message of jesus",and alot of it rings true.
Mat 23:37 "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those
who are sent to it! How often would I have gathered your children together as a
hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you would not!
"
