Baby Boomer’s Angst with the Emerging Church
Like ever Friday night, five couples converged on a local restaurant to eat and talk late into the evening. The ages in the group run from the late 40s to the mid 50s.
All of them are long time friends and great company. Yet I am the only one who would be considered pomo friendly. All the others innocently “don’t get-it.”
The conversation at my end of the table revolved around a couple of observations from the person sitting next to me:
1. Today’s bible classes are little more than dumbed-down topical studies, philosophical in thought; more life-issue oriented. His premise: Bible classes today are nowhere near what they use to be in thought and biblical content.
2. The distinction (or the clearly marked lines of demarcation) between a Christian and a non-Christian have seemingly been lost in the contemporary church attempting to connect with culture.
