Robb writes a post on critcism . . . and that there is too much of it in the body of Christ.
Emergent Christianity seems weary of valid critique within orthodox Christianity toward all the errant, frontier, entrepreneur, postmodern strands of evangelicalism. Yet there is a place for critique among all who claim to be Christ’s sheep on this earth. Some are not real sheep. Some are not real shepherds (Isaiah 56:11, Ezekiel 34, John 10).
It has to be said that there is a lot of unnecessary backbiting within the church that distracts us from the mission that we were sent on by Jesus.
