Overview

Is the emerging church movement just another passing fad, a more contemporary approach to church, or a bunch of disillusioned young people looking for answers? In fact, it is actually much broader and is influencing Christianity to a significant degree. Grounded in a centuries-old mystical approach, this movement is powerful, yet highly deceptive, and it draws its energy from practices and experiences that are foreign to traditional evangelical Christianity. The path that the emerging church is taking is leading right into the arms of Roman Catholicism and ultimately to an interfaith perspective that has prophetically profound ramifications.

    Answered a Lot of Questions

    Faith Undone asks Christian readers to consider some tough questions such as, is the "new reformation" proposed by emerging church leaders actually the way God has instructed us to go in the Bible? Does postmodern Christianity need a different approach that makes Jesus a role model but not necessarily the only way to salvation? Is this new Christianity which is grounded in a centuries-old mystical approach to spirituality actually foreign to what the bible teaches? And, is "rigid" Chrisitanity the cause of the world's problems as the emergent church implies, or is it because of man's sinful condition?

    These are just a few of the issues addressed in this book. I felt Oakland did a good job showing how the teachings of the emerging church is not just a passing fad or just a contemporary way to "do" church, but is actually a powerful yet deceptive movement being endorsed by mainstream theologians. He takes the teachings of these leaders and sheds light on the deception using scripture.

    I've heard a lot about various things being taught within the emerging church that gave me pause but I wasn't sure why. Reading Faith Undone has answered a lot of questions for me as to why the teachings of things such as contemplative prayer, spiritual formation, the Eucharist, lectio divina, and so much more are, in fact, unbiblical as taught by these teachers. As Oakland says, "Rather than pointing the lost to the Word of God and out of an apostate church, many are being led into dogma, traditions, and extra-biblical experiences." He makes the case that this new form of Chrisitanity is "replacing biblical faith with a faith that says man can find his own path to God and create a perfect kingdom of God here on earth."

    Those who embrace this new spiritual formation without question will likely not be swayed by this book but I personally believe every Christian who understands the responsibility every believer has to test such teaching against the truth of God's word needs to read Faith Undone.

    Christianty today

    We need to seek the true and correct messages for our lives from the heart of God and not from the sweet and captivating voices of Satan and his dark angels.
