Discernmentalists (that is the biblical ones) KNOW that we must paint the world with a broad brush. If one Emerging is a heretic all Emergings are heretics. The many are judged by one. This also goes for Roman Catholics. We can’t judge them by commonalities such as the Nicene or Apostles Creed, or holding to the divinity of Jesus or his resurrection. No, we must judge them entirely on the basis of secondary issues such as prayers to Mary…. and if some do it, they all do it. Therefore, they are all false and not Christian.
Of course we wouldn’t do that to our fellow Protestants. The Episcopal Church in the USA ordained a gay bishop, Benny Hinn produces very questionable…ahem miracles, John Hagee denied the Messiahship of Christ, and Ted Haggard came out gay. There are numerous understandings to authority of scripture, some do not teach inerrancy, and others don’t necessarily understand sola scriptura (or even teach it) the same way… yet we do not entirely reject Protestantism wholesale. We’re all about consistency…right?

McTruthwarrriors is the most important truth warror fast-food restaurant of all times. With each burger served they include a bible based truth-quote from a MIGHTY TRUTH WARRIOR, or a false teaching emergent horde. They have been successful at discerning billions and billions of bits of information. Emerging quotes are organized, paraphrased, truncated and then passed from restaurant to restaurant until all context has been divorced from the original understanding. Then once it has been circulated over a billion times it is passed through the Discernment of Ministry Orthodoxy Religiously Organized Naysayers (MORON) where it is recycled again by affiliate truth warrior restaurants such as Pizza Slice of Laodicea, Apprising Burgers, and Eric Barger’s Take A Hotdog Stand Ministries and Foods.
Emerging Horde Quote: “I truly pray that churches and Christians see past the non-essential doctrinal and methodological differences and unite on mission together. Essentials to me are doctrines like the Trinity, salvation through Jesus alone and atonement through the cross, inspiration and authority of Scripture, repentance, future judgment etc……..non-essentials are tradition and denominational preferences, modes of baptism and things like that. ” Dan Kimball
Once this quote is filtered and recycled it will be spun to mean that Dan Kimball actually minimizes essentials and seeks to question biblical authority or the cross. Indeed, anything that affirms biblical Christianity will actually be construed as the opposite. Finally, this quote will suggest that Dan is trying to undermine all that Christianity stands for… which will prove once again that the Emerging Hordes are anything but biblical…and ALL emergents stand for the same things.
