Lesson

The emergent church movement emphasizes engaging the culture, authenticity, being sensitive to our hermeneutical “blind spots,” reaching out to “postmodern” people, and an unwillingness to be bound by tradition. When people begin a new movement, it can create an opportunity for you to re-evaluate your theology and practice to determine if your ideas are biblical or based solely on tradition.
