The following link entitled, “The Real Roots of the Emergent Church” is an informative documentary of the development of the Emergent Church movement. It explains the extreme side of the movement that has been rejected by mainstream Christianity. There is a more conservation form of the movement that has yet to be identified as part of the movement.
The tell-tale signs of the movement can be identified by its ecumenism (abandoning the clear and major teachings of Scripture for unity with unorthodox denominations) and its acceptance of Roman Catholic mysticism, which many mainstream Christian personalities in the media (T.V., Internet and radio) are embracing.
