I wish I could say I didn't expect this, but I did. Someone has claimed the death of Kyle Lake is God's message to the EC: "God Sends Shocking Message to the Emerging Church." Does God electrocute Emerging Church pastors?
Bob Hyatt is bordering on livid, and writes a short post with his email response to the author.
Maybe God's message is, 'Stop baptizing people.' Sheesh. Every pastor or theologian who dies young will have their reputation and that of their "movement" Ananias and Sapphira'd. What about Jonathan Edwards, for crying out loud? You can't have your cake and eat it too.
Oh, and one more thing, I think if God is going to kill someone, He is going to make sure we know that He did it. He will not share His glory with electricity or a microphone.
