Be careful about what you listen to and what you teach...
"Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers." 1 Timothy 4:16

The reason that I wanted to include this post is because I believe many Christians today (especially the younger generation) are being sold and taught a slightly different gospel than is found in the Scriptures, and I believe the implications of that are and will continue to be devastating if we are not "watching" carefully what we are taking in and giving away. A movement that I believe is the major contributor to producing and selling this different gospel (which is not the true gospel) is the "Emergent Church". Now, I would recommend that you do your research about the "Emergent Church" before you draw the same conclusions that I have and many of the reformed community draw today. Below is a link to a 3-part critique that Greg Gilbert, the director of theological research at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, does on Rob Bell, who is a front runner of the "Emergent Church" and produces NOOMA videos that are the new craze in youth groups across America.
