Willow Creek and Brian McLaren Go "Serpent Sensitive"

This is an important article to read because it shows how Willow Creek condones the heretic Brian McLaren by inviting him to be the featured speaker at their "Shift" youth conference.

Thus, I would agree with Russell D. Moore, (senior vice president for academic administration at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky), that Willow Creek has gone from "Seeker Sensitive" to "Serpent Sensitive".

here is an excerpt:

"McLaren's comments at Willow Creek are not themselves surprising," he said. "What is surprising is that a Christian conference, especially one growing out of a movement designed to reach 'seekers' for Christ, would invite him to speak. When McLaren questions the existence of hell and the hope of the second coming, he is not a 'new kind of Christian.' Such things are neither new nor Christian.

"They are instead a repetition of the voice of a snake in a long-ago garden: 'Has God said?' and 'You shall not surely die.' It is tragic that one of the world's most renowned evangelical churches would highlight this kind of Serpent-sensitive worship."

McLaren seems often to blame the traditional Church thru "code talk" for many of the problems in the world.It should be a RED FLAG for people in their church if their church associates with Willow Creek . Why church leaders work with people who deny the Bible makes no sense or maybe it is a sign of the direction the church is going.
I believe the world likes men who question the Bible it makes the world feel comfortable where they are.
One other point ... the Bible is clear that no one seeks God , it is only the Holy Spirit that plucks them out and places them in Christ. There are no seekers.

I would question whether McLaren is even saved... how can you NOT believe in hell and at the same time get to a Godly sorrow which leads to repentance unto salvation? When it comes to the word of God, either you believe it all, or you don't believe it at all. Hmmm, I wonder which side McLaren is on? Go figure.

Nice post.

Blessings,
Chris
