The Bible warns us about a great delusion that will take place prior to the second coming of Jesus Christ. Jesus Himself wants to warn us so that we will be prepared, and said that many of us will fall away. Is that delusion already underway in our Body of Christ today? We've talked about the many facets of the Emerging Church movement, and despite what some would hope or what you may have heard about this movement, it has NOT gone away. And the concern is that whether knowingly or unknowingly, millions of people will be lead down a slippery slope of deception. How could this happen? Very subtly.
Today we'll introduce you to Joe Schimmel, founder of The Good Fight Ministries, and producer of such DVD teachings as They Sold Their Souls for Rock and Roll. Joe has a brand new 2-part DVD series just launched titled, THE SUBMERGING CHURCH: How the Emerging Church is Drawing Multitudes Away from Biblical Christianity. The two and a half hour 2-DVD set exposes the spiritual outlooks of key figures in the emerging church/contemplative movement such as Rob Bell, Brian McLaren, Mark Driscoll, Rick Warren, Dan Kimball, Tony Campolo, and others.
Joe Schimmel is also the senior pastor at Blessed Hope Chapel, an evangelical non-denominational fellowship in Simi Valley, California. He helped found the church in 1990 and has been there ever since.
