In conclusion let me just say that there is ample evidence that, although CE National isn’t “emerging” or “emergent:, there seems to be far too much compromise going on with these areas and issues. In their desire to see young folks reached, taught, and released they are willing to feature speakers and mentors who have EC fondness. CE National is apparently willing to introduce some of these dangerous teachings to any who visit their lending library and of course send people to sites like Youth Specialties and continue the Purpose Driven paradigm.
All I am left with is a burden which I believe is based on God’s Word concerning the compromise and the eventual judgment that may befall many who will not stand today in the face of the EC compromise. At this point, I will await and watch future developments concerning CE National. Under no circumstances would I send anyone to the Driven conferences and I have to sadly say that I don’t think we should continue to promote these Momentums and various other activities until we are given some answers concerning these issues raised. I know that sounds alarmist and it is not a formal call for a boycott but an exhortation to approach CE National and ask the necessary questions about the concerns raised here.
The leadership of CE National needs to know our concerns and it is my prayer that others will be moved to contact them and share their voice on these matters. It is our Christian duty to be discerning and speak the truth in love. That sometimes involves a loving rebuke with the hopes of turning someone from the dangerous path of error and in CE National’s case, protecting the many young people that they are seeking to instruct and nurture in the faith.
I do not doubt that that is wholeheartedly what they want to be doing and in many cases are doing, but I cannot ignore the cautionary conviction and the red flags that are raised when we consider many of the teachings in the church today.
Contact me anytime and don’t get mad at this expose:
“Do not rebuke a mocker or he will hate you; rebuke a wise man and he will love you. Instruct a wise man and he will be wiser still; teach a righteous man and he will add to his learning. “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” (Proverbs 9:8-10)
