So many people on all sides of the issue are confused about just how far the decision impacts them, their faith, and their lives. Chris Armer commented on my earlier post. He asked whether I believe a Christian might be able to look at the issue of same sex marriage in a manner similar to religious liberty; that a Christian could be against the act but for the freedom to do that act. Do you know who else wants that?

While many are bewildered as to why their churches are darkening their sanctuaries and setting up prayer stations with candles, incense, and icons, promoters of the emerging church movement say they know exactly what they are doing.
Mark Driscoll of Mars Hill Fellowship once explained: Everything in the service needs to preach—architecture, lighting, songs, prayers, fellowship, the smell—it all preaches.
All five senses must be engaged to experience God.
Dan Kimball quotes an older gentleman who had expressed his concerns about the implementation of an emerging style of mystical worship: Dan, why did you use incense?
But comments like this not only come from the elderly; many younger people are saying the same things. Both young and old are becoming concerned as they see multi-sensory mystical worship replace the preaching and teaching of the Word.
Nevertheless, Kimball and many others are convinced they are on the right path based on their view that emerging generations desire a multi-sensory worship experience. But in our culture, which is becoming more multi-sensory and less respectful of God, we have a responsibility to pay attention to the design of the space where we assemble regularly.
In the emerging culture, darkness represents spirituality. We see this in Buddhist temples, as well as Catholic and Orthodox churches.
Darkness communicates that something serious is happening. How ironic that returning to a raw and ancient form of worship is now seen as new and even cutting edge. We are simply going back to a vintage form of worship which has been around for as long as the church has been in existence.
If the early believers were in darkness, it would have been because they were meeting in secret to avoid arrest. To insinuate they were thinking about multi-sensory practices is an insult to their courage and devotion to God.
Nowhere in Scripture is there even a hint of this. Dan Kimball, The Emerging Church, p. Leonard Sweet is named top strategist of the year, Rick Warren top diplomat of the year, and Mark Driscoll top reformer of the year.
Yungen also discusses Leonard Sweet. Faith Undone by Roger Oakland lays out information about all three of the men. The reason for the present day deception that has come into the church is not limited to these three leaders however.
Why is this so serious?
