The Dangers and Origin of the Emergent Cult (Church?)

This first video shows how the "modernized" gospel commonly seen in emergent churches is not a gospel at all, but a heresy more reminiscent of a cult than the gospel of Jesus Christ. I humble state that the emergent church ideals pose the greatest threat to the church in America today.  The emergent church focuses on being "seeker friendly", yet seem to always be only pieces of the true gospel, never the whole.  Good stuff here.

This second video is from the late Dr. Francis Schaeffer, sometimes called the "weeping prophet".  He spoke passionately in the 60's, 70's and 80's of the need for the true church to come together, witness to the lost, and use every avenue available to further the gospel.  Good stuff, to be sure.
