QUOTE: “If churches embracing the principle of sola scriptura [by Scripture alone] fail to understand and address the concerns voiced in the Emerging Church conversation, we may lose an entire generation of professing believers. … While we should applaud and apply much of its content, we must also confront that it is moved along by an old philosophical wind which ever threatens to wrest Christ’s church from the foundation of her faith—the written Word of God. … If the Emerging Church eventually defines Christ’s church, then the church as Christ defined it will be no more.” —Rutledge Etheridge, pastor of Providence Reformed Presbyterian Church and an adjunct professor of systematic theology at the Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary [christianpost.com, 1/24/09]
