Emergent Watch is dedicated to exposing the errors and the dangers within the “Emerging Church” movement. We stand on, and for The Word of God as revealed in the Holy Bible.
The real danger is that the occultic practice of contemplative prayer is being brought into bible-based evangelical churches, church schools and church bookstores, under various guises as a form of “prayer”, etc., The emerging/ contemplative infection is spreading like wildfire and devouring denominations and independent churches as well.
Other dangerous streams of false teachings – stemming from elevating experiential Christianity above God’s Word – And the conversion of churches from biblical teaching and evangelism into “purpose-driven” social justice outreaches – These all appear to now be joining the emergent stream.
Contemplative prayer and similar so-called “spiritual disciplines” have come from ecumenical “inter-faith” exchanges between practitioners of eastern occultic meditative traditions and Catholic mystics. It should not be surprising that it’s practice acclimates the individual towards these spiritual views.
Contemplative prayer is one of the most dangerous practices ever to enter the church. The occultic influence of contemplative “prayer” is devastating the hearts and minds of Christians, causing many to fall away – infusing them with a New Age panenthistic and ecumenical worldview. Meanwhile, Christians are being diverted into joining with the world in various social outreaches – instead of sharing the Gospel, which alone can save souls.
