Lighthouse Trails have finally topped themselves.
In an article entitled “Two Serious Prayer Requests” is this;
“Our second important request is for a young 20 year old man whom we will call “Michael.” Michael is in serious trouble, and he is a product of the emerging church. He was raised in a loving and strong Christian family in Southern California. For over six years, during his late teenage years, Michael and his parents were attending an evangelical church, which, unbeknownst to his parents, was becoming an emerging church. Frankly, his parents hadn’t even heard about the emerging church at that time. But the deceit of the enemy was working its way into Michael’s life. Shortly after Michael graduated from high school, he made the announcement to his parents that he was gay. There had been no indication of this throughout his youth, but the combination of venturing into the world of pornography on the computer and hearing the subtle lies of the emerging church week after week finally took its toll. Today, Michael has left his loving devoted parents and gone deep into the homosexual lifestyle.
Michael was raised a Christian. And sadly, there are countless “Michaels” in this same scenario all around the world. Please pray for this particular young man but also let us pray that the eyes of many young people will be opened to the hideous deception of the emerging church and its many far-reaching arms. Michael’s parents have now become fully aware of the dangers of the new spirituality and warn others about this false gospel. They are praying desperately for their son that he will return to the Savior of his childhood and realize that the homosexual lifestyle is part of what we now call the “death religion” (i.e., the New Age movement). Whether it be evolution, homosexuality, mysticism, abortion, or pedophilia, it all leads to darkness and death. In contrast, Jesus Christ offers light and life through His shed blood on Calvary.”
So let me get this right…
This guy is burning incense and reading Eugene Peterson and all of a sudden likes the look of a man in jeans?
The lecto divina led him to porn sites involving yoga?
Now we know that the undefined “emerging church” leads to homosexuality and a host of other evils contained in it’s “hideous arms”.
One sermon from Tony Campolo and you will start to lisp, two sermons and a devotional from Henri Nouwen and suddenly you love “salmon” colored shirts.
I just got a Mosaic Bible and have a weakness for sandlewood candles…I’m going to get up early, drink some black coffee, change my oil and shoot a large animal just to make sure I’m ok…
