I now believe lighthouse Trails is doing more damage than good to the body of Christ, so I don’t encourage them any more. I’m sorry for any influence I might have had for my encouragement to trust these people.
For me they have crossed the line too many times into sensationalism for their own reward in the propagation of their own ends in books and notoriety. There is a fine line in doing good for the body of Christ and self aggrandizement.
I assure you I in no way believe in contemplative spirituality, or if you call it the emergent church movement. For me they are just another attempt of the world to stake a claim in the church, just another attack of the evil one to stumble God’s children.
Unfortunately also for those who become so fearful of this fad that they find themselves not trusting any church they go to, and end up not going at all. We are told to come together with our brothers and sisters in love, which is how the world knows that we are of Christ.
We love because he first loved us. If anyone says, ‘I love God,’ yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen. And he has given us this command: Whoever loves God must also love his brother. 1 John 4:19-21 NIV
God Bless YOU
