Doug Baker has written a new article in Baptist Press, "The Gospel at the Center." In it he works through emerging church issues and theology, Rob Bell and Brian McLaren, and finds it all pretty dangerous. Do you agree?
While no human being will ever be ableadequately to explain the mystery of the incarnation, the resurrection, or the Trinity, a “generous orthodoxy” (an idea taken from McLaren’s book by the same title) would never reframe these doctrines or others like them in such fluid terms so as to confuse others of their true meaning. In the end, this orthodoxy is not generous, but dangerous.
