This vid is partly a response to certain claims and complaints of one "Symph Controversy" -- but it is mostly intended as an educational presentation, and addresses claims common to what is known as the emergent church. SC's arguments are far from unique; they can also be found in such emergent church leaders as Brian McLaren and Carl Medearis. So if SC repents of his shallow and emotion-based judgmentalism, as well as his hypocrisy and inconsistency, I will replace his character here with one of the popular emergents like McLaren.
Contrary to emergents, and others, there is ample Biblical justification for use of harsh language towards qualified parties. This vid explains the background of that.
I have more to say about the emergent church, and this issue, on a post at my Forge blog, at http://tektonforge.blogspot.com/2012/... which includes responses to typical objections such as, "Hey man, you're not Jesus so you can't do that!" and "These people have been hurt by the church!" Having done real research on such questions over the last 15-20 years, I know better.
