I've grown tired of regurgitating answers that some guy decided were fact 500 years ago.
The New Christians, p. 107
So, does he care whether that guy 500 years ago was right or wrong? If he found a guy 500 years ago who agreed with him, would the fact that he lived 500 years ago matter to him?
Well, considering that emergents go "ancient" when the ancient agreed with them, especially in regards to mystical practices, then I think those questions have been answered.
And what about the Bible? The latest parts of it were written roughly 2000 years ago. Is that suddenly invalid because it's "old"?
