I am a Christian with a B.S. & M.S. in Mathematics.
I am married, with two kids who are my pride and joy.
I speak three languages (English, Norwegian, and German) and am learning two more (Korean and Japanese).
The emergent/emerging pupating church fancies itself as offering a "new kind" of "Christianity" that is more humble and charitable than the version of Christianity foisted on the unsuspecting world by those nasty fundamentalists and others who are actually so naive as to insist on minor things like sola scriptura. Watch this, and see for yourself who is being humble, and who is the epitome of hubris. (The comments at the post are especially eye-opening in this regard.)
The emergent/emerging pupating church likes to pretend that they're "engaging in conversation" (boy, what a hackneyed phrase that has become), but apparently that applies only if you're one of their sycophants. Otherwise, they're more interested in shouting you down, because (of course), you're hopelessly backwards and you don't really understand them anyways - after all, if you truly understood them, you'd agree with them, too. But, then, since you have negative things to say about them, you're just so mean and uncharitable (not merely "inaccurate," mind you, but downright "uncharitable" - which, as the moderator of the panel points out, is a value judgment - Exhibit #1 in the illustration of emergent/emerging pupating "tolerance" for differing views) and have therefore forfeited your right to speak up.
If the emergent/emerging pupating church is hosting a smørgåsbord where (hackneyed phrase alert) "nuanced views" are the norm and any religious belief is welcome (as long as it doesn't come from one of those hidebound Bible-thumpers), then, the emergent/emerging pupating church, like any good host, is making sure that they provide plenty of whine for their anything-goes-except-Scriptural-doctrine lovefest.
You cannot separate what a man believes from what he is. For this reason doctrine is vitally important. Certain people say ignorantly, "I do not believe in doctrine; I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ; I am saved, I am a Christian, and nothing else matters". To speak in that way is to court disaster, and for this reason, the New Testament itself warns us against this very danger. We are to guard ourselves against being "tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine", for if your doctrine goes astray your life will soon suffer as well.
So it behoves us to study the doctrines in order that we may safeguard ourselves against certain erroneous and heretical teachings that are as rife and as common in the world today as they were in the days of the early Church.
