Suspicion is best when researching says ODMAfia

Pastor Scott says “There are some who won’t like this question because the word “emerging” itself has become such a negative term that the idea that anything of value might come out of the EC is anathema. But I believe that even the most ardent opponents of the EC need to have more of a hermeneutic of charity (rather than a hermeneutic of suspicion)”

Are you serious? Discernmentalism is founded on fear and suspicion!!! We should know!

If we were to evaluate theology on another basis we would have to use the bible properly  and apply love, be humble, our use our rational faculties, common sense and even be objective and all that stuff.

Besides a hermeneutic of charity is anti-biblical. We can’t find a single verse in the New Testament that would suggest loving our enemies…and we have TWO dusty bibles.

We can’t adhere to so called Pastor Scott’s advice and still have an audience that will follow us. We demand at least 2 hits a day.

We can’t adhere to so called Pastor Scott’s advice and sell our our books, T-shirts, and DVDs without spreading fear and outrage….at the delight of our audience.

We implore our readers to our DEFAULT mode of fear, and suspicion….and DEFINITELY  no hermeneutic of charity! That in itself sounds like a post-liberal-modern combo that we must come against. An apologist who wanted to remain nameless suggested “We need more suspicion in ministry.”
