If there's one sand in the progressive church Senate certainty. Beware of people who charge him with certainty in Bible verses. So the issue of certainty came up we can be certain about what we believe is in the Bible that was rejected by the immersion church and that's an underlying worldview of a progressive Christianity.

Progressive Christianity's been around for a long time, long before the emergent church but how did the emerging church which emerged sort of in the early 2000's around that era. How did that undermine people raised. Let's say in the evangelical church in that realm. Well, as you heard in the clips. There was a response to young people dropping out of church and when that happens the first thing that people try to do is to again make the church more attractive to the cultures so there trying to change things in either the methods that you used to do church, whether that be like are you sitting on pews were chairs like what kind of music. Things like that.

Then they started targeting the message of the church. The gospel itself. Rethinking a lot of those difficult doctrines that we talked about including how the atonement, the attributes of God. This was all happening when postmodern thinking was becoming popular, and that again is just this idea that we can't know anything for certain, but the problem is if someone says we can know anything for certain.

Are you certain about that. That's a a statement of made in certainty.

So it's self-defeating. They view certainty as prideful arrogance and they really value questioning everything. The questions are more important than answers. The journey is more important than the destination type of thing
