Hot topic on the internet right now – Roger Oakland, of Understanding the Times, author of the hard hitting book against the emerging church "Faith Undone: the emerging church—a new reformation or an end-time deception", and anti-emerging church activist on YouTube, has been removed from his office at the Calvary Chapel Logos building and has lost his place on their radio station. PhoenixPreacher seems to be hosting the discussion and there is talk of the previous conversation regarding Chuck Smith and Chuck Smith Jr – not all the facts are in yet.
Anyone from Calvary Chapel know what’s going on?
Personally, I feel for Roger and prayed for him this morning. He seems like a sincere man although his teachings border on the extreme and he seems to reject most of the evangelical church as heretical and leading us all to Rome – from megachurch to seeker to emerging to prayer movements to YWAM. I said i would review his book last week but i ran out of time. I don’t think it would be appropriate at this time to do so. Maybe when things settle down for Roger and he finds a new place to office, then we can discuss the arguments in his book. I do think that his book is worth reading if you want to find out why some people really despise the emerging church movement. Roger did a lot of reading. Its his interpretation that I disagree strongly with, but that is to be expected.
