Liberal New Paradigm SBC churches?

Postby Haruo » Sat Jan 31, 2009 3:42 am

One of the Anonymous replies to the FBCJax Watchdog post about Smyrl's tiff with Lifeway contained this rather provocative, if incomprehensible, assertion:

HALF RIGHT JIM

Jim is partially right about the problems with Lifeway. Lifeway is supplying material for all of the LIBERALS in the SBC.

Oh! You don't think that is so? Then do your homework. Who is in the SBC nowadays? Just about any NEW PARADIGM church that comes along. So what are the qualifications. Listen to this.

Ed Stetzer, Partner Enlistment Manager, North American Missions Board, SBC wrote:House church, contemporary, seeker sensitive, and cell-based are new ideas to many Southern Baptist. However these are descriptions of many dynamic Southern Baptist churches. If the standard of fellowship and affiliation is to be the perfect Word of God and our confessional statement we must understand that this leaves a " big tent" in church practice while maintaining theological integrity. That's good news- Southern Baptists should affirm all forms of scripturally sound churches.


Right!! Anyone who has sat in on these NEW PARADIGM CHURCHES Knows that they are not scripturally sound.

But, with the SBC approving these LIBERAL churches, Lifeway has gone along with that philosophy and has allowed support material to be included in their mailing list.

Jim you are still just half right.

I don't get it. What are NEW PARADIGM CHURCHES and how would one Know that they are not scripturally sound by sitting in on them? In what sense are they LIBERAL? Are they actually teaching that Tim LaHaye says God is a lesbian, or what?

To the rabid fundy that wrote that, the new paragigm is anything that is to the left of him and his preferences. I'm always happy to find a real mozgatharp-type fundy because they provide the contrast with us conservatives.

We are exploring the possibility of a partnership with what you might call a "new paradigm" church here locally, and one of the main areas our team investigated thoroughly was its theology, which we discovered to be at least as sound, biblical, and well thought out as ours, and in some areas even more so. There are those in the SBC who think that anyone who doesn't sing hymns with an organ and piano, require dressing up to come through the door, have a thirty minute sermon with an invitation is "liberal." Let them think what they want, most of those churches will be dead and gone in a decade.

This supports my long-time assertion that most fundamentalists have never met a true theological liberal.
