Want to know what The Purpose Driven Life/Church, the Alpha Program, The Message, Brother Lawrence, the Mennonite Church, The Emerging Church, and Focus on the Family have in common?
Answer: They are all denounced as promoters and/or proponents of heretical "contemplative spirituality", according to the group at this website.
Before you dismiss these folks as radical nuts, spend a while on the site, as I did. I'm still trying to figure out which side of the fruitcake they're eating from. I could use some insight from my more spiritually mature brothers and sisters-in-arms on this one.
What say you?
