NAZNET’S GURU BRIAN MCLAREN = ALL RELIGIONS OK
J. Grant Swank, Jr.
When a NazNet moderator posts that the Bible is not important, that’s apostasy.

When that moderator claims Jesus is The Only Item, downplaying Scripture, that’s apostasy.
Further, it is also old-fashioned theological liberalism, the type that I was taught long ago when a student at Harvard Divinity School.
Therefore, when NazNet moderators adopt Emerging Church Brian McClaren as their prime guru, they are embracing Unitarianism, the foundational theology that governs Harvard Divinity School.

How far then a “friend” to the Church of the Nazarene, namely NazNet by its own advertisement, attempts to swing this holiness church into blasphemy.

If Nazarenes go for the blasphemy, God will level His wrath upon the denomination. It will crumble. If Nazarene leaders do not weed out this demonic intrusion, the structure will disintegrate globally in short order.

McClaren states: “. . . help people become followers of Jesus and remain within their Buddhist, Hindu or Jewish contexts. . .”
That is theological liberalism—plain and obvious. It is not what evangelical biblical disciples hold to. Liberalism’s anti-Bible dogma is at the very opposite end of the evangelical spectrum.
Therefore, when NazNet claims moderators Hans Deventer’s and Scott Cundiff’s pro-McClaren conclusions as posh doctrine, NazNet betrays God, the Bible and the Church of the Nazarene.

Not only does Deventer betray his own church, but Cundiff betrays his own pastoral vows for he is the minister at the Alvin Texas Church of the Nazarene.
His church’s web site portrays Cundiff as a “holiness preacher;” however, his NazNet Unitarian-type doctrinal positions are just the opposite of Nazarene teaching. In other words, Cundiff lives theologically a “double life” kept secret from his small congregation.

Garbled McClaren continues his mix-and-match beliefs with such nonsense as the following: “To help Buddhists, Muslims, Christians, and everyone else experience life to the full in the way of Jesus (while learning it better myself), I would gladly become one of them (whoever they are), to whatever degree I can, to embrace them, to join them, to enter into their world without judgment. . .”
Do you get the wishy-washy feel of this swing-and-sway McClaren give-forth? It is gibberish. It is whatever-makes-you-feel-fuzzy religion. This infantile approach to doctrine is mirrored by the likes of Deventer and Cundiff on NazNet.
It is, however, more than that. It is a collection of belief statements that will damn McClaren’s soul, a popular false prophet in these confused times.
NazNet moderators who adopt McClaren’s false teachings are likewise in danger of damning their souls for they have wedded into his apostasy. They do more than that, however. They proclaim same on the Internet for the world to read, hoping the readers will agree with their devilment.
