Nudists and Postmoderns

Leonard Ravenhill had something interesting to say in his sermon, "Hell Has No Exits" and it applies quite well to the Emergent.

As you know, if you've become familiar with the Emergent heresy, the BIG REASON the Emergents say it is okay to be postmodern in your thought life is that we have to "be like 'em to reach 'em," a heresy common in the Evangelical church. Well, Ravenhill took up the subject of immodest dress in the church. Naturally, he got the usual excuse, "We have to dress like them to reach them."

To which he said, "I suppose some of you boys are praying you'll get called to a nudist colony."

Just thinking,

They really don't get it, do they? One must certainly understand the culture to confront the culture, but we shouldn't EVER BECOME the culture. They misinterpret Paul's "become all things to all men." And that's an understatement.

If they did get it they'd have to obey it, huh?
