NAZNET’S LOVE AFFAIR WITH EMERGING CHURCH
J. Grant Swank, Jr.
NazNet’s guru is Brian McLaren who states: “I believe people are saved not by objective truth, but by Jesus. Their faith isn’t in their knowledge, but in God.”
NazNet moderator Hans Deventer parrots this apostasy by stating Deventer does not believe the Bible, only the part about Jesus forgiving sins. Deventer, opportunist maximum, wants Jesus’ forgiveness to get into heaven. That’s all. Figures.
Deventer commits blasphemy by following Pied Piper McLaren rather than God’s infallible Bible. Deventer will pay at the Judgment Seat of Christ, as will all others who discount the divine revelation for their own egocentric “theologies.”
For McLaren to say he rejects “objective truth” is to state that he discards moral absolutes. That is exactly what the adolescent emergent church is built upon—the sand of their own situation ethics.
One does not throw away God’s absolutes in Scripture for a sweety notion of Nice Guy Jesus. That is anathema, yet McLaren and NazNet disciples fold right into such heresies.
NazNet founder Dave McClung does nothing to discount this on his web site. Instead, McClung along with other moderators such as Scott Cundiff and former moderator Barbara Moulton say Amen to it.
Do not these mortals factor in the Judgment Seat of Christ? They were all reared in the Scripture; now they throw the Bible to the winds for their own moral relativism.
McLaren states: “I don’t believe making disciples must equal making adherents to the Christian religion.” McLaren espouses one world religion, as does NazNet.
Yet NazNet claims to be a “friend” to the holiness Church of the Nazarene. What will the Board of General Superintendents, Nazarene Theological Seminary, Nazarene Theology School, Nazarene Bible College and Nazarene college religion department heads do about such heretical intrusions?
Time will tell.
Thus far, McClung and clique have relied on their political cronyism to keep them intact with the power structures throughout the denomination. Will that continue? If so, God’s wrath will descend upon the church. God will not tolerate blasphemy.
Alvin Texas Church of the Nazarene Pastor Scott Cundiff in particular is enamored by the likes of McLaren. Cundiff posts on NazNet that the more he studies Scripture, the less he knows God. He states that when meditating on this concept, it keeps him more in line with his Wesleyan theology.
Is that not crazy? Is that not evil? Wesleyan theology siding up to discounting the Bible as divine revelation? Wesleyan teaching a companion to moral relativism?
NazNet is one of the most dangerous web sites on the Internet in that it slices and dices the biblical call to heart holiness—the highest calling from the divine.

FOOTNOTE: JUDGMENT DAY
It is appointed unto men once to die, but after that the judgment.
Matthew 7:21-23: the words of Christ:
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Matthew 12:36-37: the words of Christ:
But I say unto you that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
God who will render to every man according to his deed: To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honor and immorality, eternal life; But unto them that are contentious and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; But glory, honor and peace to every man that worked good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile: For there is no respect of persons with God.
For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
I Corinthians 4:5:
Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsel of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.
II Corinthians 5:10:
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
Be sure your sin will find you out.
