What's Happening in or to the church today?  Are "churches" following the Biblical model and mandate for the called out or "peculiar people" as the Word defines followers of Christ?

Is the "church" today following Jesus?

Are all the programs, "conversations" and all the books, seminars and ways according to the Word of God?  Is Jesus central and is The Bible central to all that transpires in the church today?   If not... who are they following?  And on what foundation is the "church" standing?

The "emergent" church... and the "emergent conversation..." 
The role of emergents and the emergent players

"For me, the beginning of sharing my faith with people began by throwing out Christianity and embracing Christian spirituality, a nonpolitical mysterious system that can be experienced but not explained."—Donald Miller, Blue Like Jazz, p. 115

"I must add, though, that I don't believe making disciples must equal making adherents to the Christian religion. It may be advisable in many (not all!) circumstances to help people become followers of Jesus and remain within their Buddhist, Hindu, or Jewish contexts."Brian McLaren (leader of the Emerging Church movement), author of
A Generous Orthodoxy

"I'm not talking about a religion this morning. You may be Catholic or Protestant or Buddhist or Baptist or Muslim or Mormon or Jewish, or you may have no religion at all. I'm not interested in your religious background. Because God did not create the universe for us to have religion."Rick Warren, September 2005, United Nations, Interfaith Prayer Breakfast to 100 World Delegates, Listen to entire transcript.

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart
from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;"
