Humoured

So I’ve been reading Why Were Not Emergent
(By two guys who should be)
and I couldn’t help but share a paragraph that doesn’t really have a whole lot to the emergent church, but it humored me so. This can be grouped in there with the guy whose wife got him a birthday cake that looked like a copy of Institutes from the 17th century.

At any rate, my friend David is more than eager to talk about postmodernism, emergent, theology and the like. I think every church probably has a David or two–he is the rare college student who is passionate about theology, and feels a little bit like an outsider because of it. I wouldn’t go so far as to put him in the “rabid young John Piper groupies” department, but if he met a beautiful young girl wearing glasses, no makeup, and an indie-rock T-shirt, reading Calvin’s Institutes, he probably wouldn’t hesitate to ask her to “court.”

Sound slightly familiar? Maybe so, maybe not but it humored this probably rabid young Piperite.

  1. I’m enjoyin it so far, it is an easy read. In two sittings I’ve read half of it. But I think its a great thing to read to let people know what is really going on in the Emergent movement and some of the dangers it poses by moving outside of Orthodoxy.
