The word of God and the Emerging Church
This article states “Further, in the emerging church the Word of God takes a secondary position to the worship of God.”
I thought that the word was a means to an end, not an end in itself. Scripture is the highest authority for framing our theology so that we can follow Christ. The point isn’t the scriptures themselves. Let’s face some truths about the protestant reformation. Merely flooding people with scripture through preaching results in very little life change. By moving away from this approach we aren’t necessarily disregarding scripture. We bring other elements in to their proper place.
