Silva: No Correction Wanted
“This is along the line of the CRN post What is happening at the Calvary Chapels? It seems now that apparently, according to the Phoenix Preacher website (curiously offline as of this writing), United Methodist and emerging church theologian Leonard Sweet has apparently been “disinvited” from speaking at Calvary Chapel of Albuquerque.
If Sweet is a mainstream evangelical as some suggest, then we are left to wonder why. With this in mind consider the following tweet from Sweet:
“The world is not moved by mildly interested, middle-of-the-road, play-it-safe, echo-chamber people”.
Would those “echo-chamber people” be those who adhere to the historic, orthodox, Christian faith; well, we’re left to wonder. And since when has moving the world been the mission of the Body of Christ?
Perhaps the missiologist church-planting emergents ought to get back to the Gospel – repentance and forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in Jesus’ name – and let God move the world.”
Ken, just to sate your curiosity, I blew the thing up by accident.
I’ve worked almost nonstop since Saturday to restore it.
More odd to me is the fact that although Dr.Sweet has answered all your concerns you still continue to slander him.
I told our readers that Dr. Sweet had been taken off the speakers list over a week ago.
You wonder why?
The onslaught from you and your fellow ODM’s.
My question to Silva is why he insists on continuing to slander a man who has clearly and graciously refuted all the accusations brought against him?
