If you have been around here long enough or perused the archives deep enough you know that much of the early work on this blog was spent examining the emerging church and looking for redeeming values to it. I was never a practitioner or proponent of the movement but respected aspects of it from a distance.
In a similar way I do not consider myself reformed and while I hold Piper in high regard I often cringe not necessarily at what he communicates but how he chooses to communicate it.
The Emerging Church has fell apart in many respects but to talk about the leaders living “immoral lives” and being “in shambles” was one of those cringe moments.
So what do you think will there be any expressions of the emerging/Emergent church in 10 years?
Is Piper’s analysis accurate?
