My associate pastor back home gave me this quote... it is by Brian McLaren, who is one of the leaders of the Emergent Church. It is from Generous Orthodoxy.

I must add, though, that I don't believe making disciples must equal making adherents to the Christian religion. It may be advisable in many (not all!) circumstances to help people become followers of Jesus and remain within their Buddhist, Hindu or Jewish contexts.

I don't know, this seems a little weird to me. I understand their desire to reach people where they are at... But there has to be a belief that God's Word IS Truth. You don't have to be a postmodern thinker to reach one...

I just thought that was interesting...
