A Slaughterhouse Religion

If someone said the emerging church leaders don’t like the Cross, many would cry out, “Yes, they do, I’ve heard them talk about Jesus and the Cross.”  However, while this may be true, there is an underlying theme building momentum in the emerging church that says, “Jesus going to the Cross was an example of sacrifice and service that we should follow.  But the idea that God would send His Son to a violent death for the sins of mankind – well that is not who God is.  He would never do that!”    Suffice to say, it is this unbiblical mindset that negates the very atonement on which biblical Christianity rests.
