“What is the Emergent Church? What Do They Believe?”
by Jack Wellman.
“A seeker-sensitive mentality of making church comfortable is contrary to the teaching of the Bible. The Word is said to be a sword and it cuts to the bone and marrow of the human soul, exposing the sinfulness of mankind and as has been said, it comforts the afflicted but afflicts the comfortable. Anytime repentance, confession of sin, the sacraments, and other essential doctrines are left out of a church’s teachings, the sword has either been dulled or taken out of the hands of the teachers/pastors.”
