Viking Horns and Emergent Heresy

Viking-Horns-HelmetEveryone knows that Vikings had horns. But actually they didn’t. “The Christian monks considered the Vikings to be devils from hell, which is why the myth of the horns arose and spread across the world.” Searching for the Real Vikings

Makes me think about the current heated discussion about the apparent heresies, relativism, and paganism of the “emerging church”.

Do we have 21st Century ‘monks’ putting horns on the heads of our emerging church leaders?

Here are a few good reads on emerging church from USA and UK leaders who really don’t have horns: Scot McKnight, Greg Austin, Doug Pagitt, George Lings, Alan Roxburgh.
