Deep Shift, Deep Deception

Dominionism/Emerging church, Brian McLaren, and denying the Revelation of Jesus Christ (Rev. 1:1)

The attack against the prophetic portions of scripture have now become more open and deliberate than ever and it is imperative to be aware of this as the barrage will only intensify from here on out. The reason for this is that for the emerging church/dominionist movement to be validated the Book of Revelation must be discredited because it completely negates the entire concept of the so-called 'kingdom building' agenda, actually describing in detail the failure of it.

The Gospel of John chapter 10 vs. 35 tells us "..the scripture cannot be broken". It is men who shall be broken, not the Word of God. Interestingly enough the book of Revelation has two verses which are a specific warning against altering it in any way. Here is one of the two verses, referring directly to the Book of Revelation itself:

"And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book." (Rev. 22:19; see also v.18)

This verse sheds some light on the seriousness of the subject being (briefly) dealt with here, which is this:

In a recent interview recognized emerging church leader Brian McLaren, when asked about his unique interpretation of the book of Revelation had this to say:

McLaren says: "If someone reads Revelation and thinks that it's one genre when it's another, they're going to misread it."
"....Before receiving any teaching the student has a responsibility to search the scripture to see of that taught... "whether those things were so". (Acts 17:11). That has been done regarding the above 'teaching' (and the genre has not been "misread"), and as "it turns out"...."those things were not so", as shown here in examining three statements and comparing them to scripture:" read full pt. 1

Dominionism/Emerging church, Brian McLaren, and denying the Revelation of Jesus Christ (Rev. 1:1)

Here is found what may be the most heavily relied upon argument used by those who would deny a future fulfillment of the prophecies of the book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ, as stated in this instance by recognized emerging church leader Brian McLaren:

McLaren says: "What a lot of well-meaning, committed evangelical Christians don't realize is that the view of the end-times that they believe is biblical and the historic Christian view is actually a newcomer and an anomaly in Christian history. That view of the end-times was never, ever thought of in Christian history until the 1830s. Now, that doesn't make it wrong. But it does make it suspect."
