A Return to the Tower of Babel through the Social Emergent Gospel…

Here’s another article that pretty much sums up what I have been talking about as far as the tower of Babel being rebuilt during these ecumenical days…

[…]but these people gathered together saying, “Come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the heavens, and let us make a name for ourselves, let we be dispersed over the face of the whole earth” (Genesis 11:4). This was not what God had commanded. God’s plan for man was to continue to spread over the face of the Earth, not come together in one city and defy Him. As my pastor preached through this I began to see the similarities and parallels with the emergents and the purpose driven and seeker sensitive folks and, in fact, any of those cultic type forms of Christianity that seek to gather a people together in as large a group as possible in order to “make a name for themselves.”

[…]the push in the emergent’s cry for a new reformation based on a social gospel that brings all men together instead of dividing is not of God. The settlers in Shinar did the same thing when they decided to build a walled city and tower to heaven. It is also the same thing that we see today in “Christian” leaders such as Rick Warren making overtures to Islamic leaders seeking a “common ground.” There is no “common ground” in genuine Christianity and any false versions of it or any other religion. No, there can be no compromise between the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and any manmade religion.[source]
