“Great preacher Charles Spurgeon described “soul-winning [as] the chief business . . . of every true believer.” Step into soul-winning boot camp today with John MacArthur on “Grace to You,” as he studies the lifesaving mission God calls you to.”
You hear that? Clearly soul-winning is a code-word for Easy-Believism and Easy-Believism is code-word for Arminianism—which is free-will worshipping semi-Pelagian heresy—the road to Rome! We’ve also discernmentalized that lifesaving mission is code-word for Missional-minded Christianity and this is what those Emerging/Emergent apostates teach:
“Missional Christian faith asserts that Jesus did not come to make some people saved and others condemned. Jesus did not come to help some people be right while leaving everyone else to be wrong. Jesus did not come to create another exclusive religion (based on beliefs).”
– Brian McLaren, A Generous Orthodoxy, p.120
Christian Research Network using backbones transplanted to them after the passing of our late mentor add:
The emphasis on being “missional” is often made in such a way so as to insinuate that all they are really doing is removing the Gospel message from cultural constraints. (Source)
The Missional deception is a change of emphasis in a church from outward focused evangelism with inward focused spiritual growth to inward focused “evangelism lite” with little or no emphasis on the spiritual growth of the members. The Church was viewed by our pastor and his people as their “church plant” in our community from which they would be a missional focused church ministering to the seekers who came to see what all the fuss was about. What is “Missional”? Is it the same thing as having a missionary focus like that church I used to belong to before its takeover by the Innovation Cult? No, it is different. The first way it is different is that it sees itself as “incarnational.” What does this mean? Instead of the focus being on the church and what goes on inside as far as worship, Bible Study, fellowship, and preaching, the emphasis is on being involved in the community. (Source)
From all this we can conclude that JMac (PBUH) has emerged into a Missional church mindset—condemned by his own words:
“The movement’s main trendsetters relentlessly pressure pastors to contextualize their ministry and message so that the church can stay in step with these postmodern times. Missional strategies that truncate the gospel or overshadow it with gimmickry and entertainment are not going to win the culture in this or any other age (Rom 10). In fact, the quest for the world’s approval is nothing less than spiritual harlotry.”
Update- our keen researchmentalists have pointed out this previous post of ours proving this post further as we’ve already apprised:

Pastor Scott’s outrageous Emerging Quotes exposed using Eric Barger’s Bible Based Satellite technology (BS) to uncover his dark deeds!!!
We found that Pastor Scott was using anti-discernmentalist critiques
(level headedness, patience, accuracy, integrity, objectivity, insight) against Eric Barger’s Take a Stand Ministries.
..which as we all know is THE MINISTRY OF TRUTH.
Here are some curious quotes from Pastor Scott…caught like a weak, dark evil spider in his own web of controversy:
Can you believe it? We THINK its Outrageous too!
Why is anyone NOT standing up against this blogging tyrant who obviously has a lot of pocket money to spend to secretly support emergents. We discernmentalists would NEVER EVER take another believers words out of context!
Discernmentalism is about being right….and truthful…at all costs….and we would never ever never ever misquote anyone.
Remember, let the ODMafia do your thinking for you!

The University of ODMafia is now offering the following certificate of learning with the following: Certificate of Specializing In Non-Essentials. This intense 6 week course will help you to argue over things that are not important (but make them central to your Christian walk) such as:
1) Disliking and picking fights with people who like Rob Bell
2) Disparaging anyone who likes any of Obama’s political ideas (Emphasis will be on guilt by association for any Evangelicals who have been asked to pray, or talk with the President)
3) Finding fault with every page of Rick Warren’s Purpose Driven Drivel Church
4) Attacking Rick Warren for his emphasis on Pauline apologetics (see Acts 17) when addressing the Muslims instead of zealous preaching of the Online Discernmentalist Gospel
5) Finding problems and issues with the Emerging Church (EC), even things that one would commonly agree with…but because they were from the EC it MUST be rejected and attacked.
You will find that this course will strengthen your ability and expertise as a Discernmentalist.

Discernmentalists have have long celebrated platonic dualism. We like to divide the world into the flesh (all that is bad), where God can’t go….and the spirit (where God is and we hope to be someday). In the end we want knowledge, accurate knowledge – you know 100% perfect doctrine….because we all know we are saved by perfect theology. For more detail:
“For example, Paul quite often writes about the ‘flesh’ and the ‘spirit’. If he held the Greek dualistic world view, Paul might mean by ‘flesh’ the lower, material side of life: hunger, lust, desire for significance, all the facets of living in the material, fallen world; a place in which God is not interested in dwelling, a place which is thus separated from His presence. And Paul might mean by ‘spirit’ the higher, spiritual side of life: the loftier pursuit of the knowledge of God and being in His presence; the place where communion and fellowship is possible in a way not possible if we are living in the material world of the flesh. This is in fact how modern evangelicalism interprets much of Paul’s writing about flesh and spirit.”
We embrace modern evangelicalism, because that is what we have always believed! Since we KNOW we are right, and we don’t NEED correction, we know what we know.
We are bothered by such statements as “For Paul, the flesh and the spirit are not two different realms of knowledge or experience, but rather two different routes by which to attain moral goodness, the highest goal of human experience.” WHY? Because it sounds TOO much like Rob Bell’s apostate-liberal-new-age video EVERYTHING IS SPIRITUAL. Indeed, we are flabbergasted by this suggestion “Therefore, the Greek separation of the spiritual and the material world, which was imported into Christianity after Paul wrote his epistles, provides an incorrect interpretive grid for understanding Paul’s writings.”
We don’t have interpretive grids, in fact we are gridless. We have the pure doctrines that we draw directly from the bible without any cultural, theological or moral biases…..
Simple purity. Rest assured.

Oh the horror! Recently one of our Research Robot Monkeys noted that Emergents are now hiring psychics in a last ditch effort to undermine the Absolute Truth and Certainty of the Truth Wars. We here at the ODMafia can’t say we didn’t see this coming from a mile away as we know Emerging emergers love their mystical webs of confusion. Emergents also love Mystery over Certainty as well as coffee; candles and couches—but they’ve yet to be observed in the presence of garlic. We also have reason to suspect that these Emerging vampires have merged with Mothra feminists in order to ramp up their newly found psychic abilities in order to assault unsuspecting Truth Warriors in the field of battle for our Truth. Other noted ODMs are now in the midst of battling for our Truth—researchmentalizing new techniques in Spiritual Warfare to curb these assaults.

It pains us to note that our very own Bible Bearing, Bible Belt wearing partner Take A Stand Ministries Eric Barger is noting that discernmentalism is getting ugly….we at ODMafia (with our keen sense of discernmentalism) note that it has take a new step towards Extra-Ugly.
But we won’t use the “H” word for “hypocrisy,” ….but we should.
Thank goodness that ODMafia has purer doctrines and sticks to the Bible.
Eric asks ‘When did “Guilt by Association” become “Apologetics?”
Eric this is one of your premiere ways of discernmentalism – don’t abandon ship now! We are fearful Eric is having severe memory gaps (this is often the case with discernmentalists).
That is one of the prime tactics of Take A Stand Ministries expertize (emphasis with a “Z”).
Guilt By Association Examined….
If you cite a Roman Catholic you are a false teacher.
If you are friends with an emergent…you are an apostate.
If you had tea with Brian McLaren …you are on your way to hell, Canada or the Roman Catholic Church.
PS Eric states “Scripture indicates that the early Church leaders experienced sharp disagreements but were able to work through their differences without maligning each other.” see here, & here:
… we are not finished….thankgoodness for our keen sense of discernmentalism part 2 to come!

This just goes to show just how far the Emerging Church will go to justify their ungodly rebellion against the Only True and Correct Doctrines.
New raw footage of last Friday’s deadly air show crash in Reno shows the doomed plane nosediving and exploding on audience.
Watch: Crowd screams ‘Oh my God’
In related news: The Emerging Church has also been tied to a brutally fatal shark attack. We have evidence just read this: “We saw the shark’s nose emerge and then the man just vanished. It was very sudden, then the animal just swam off. ” That’s just how sinisterly vile and disgusting these Emergent types are in their corruption of Pure Doctrine… They violently try to fight the Truth of Orthodoxy by leading people astray into apostasy. This is why we must fight this Truth War to protect God’s Truth from those infected by the Emerging Church disease.
All my researchmentalism on this subject has been “well-researched” so you should just take my word as Absolute Truth and fact. In fact, you all should thank God for this site and sites like the infallible Ken Silva’s CRN for our great and important research such as this article! If you didn’t have us to Take A Stand on things such as this matter the Emerging hordes will destroy God’s Truth.
