May it never be! Let God be true, and every man a liar. As it is written: “So that you may be proved right when you speak and prevail when you judge.” (Ro 3:4)

Emerging Church and Jesus Christ

There is a pattern that I’ve notice with the emerging church. The leaders seems to have a problem of referring to our Lord, God, and Savior as Jesus Christ. I did a google on Dan Kimball’s Vintage Faith Church and his blog. I haven’t found one instance where Dan referred to our Lord as Jesus Christ. He would use the name Jesus, but not Jesus Christ. I did a similar google search of Doug Pagitt’s church Solomon’s Torch, and it is the same there.

There are quotes from the Bible and lyrics that uses the name Jesus Christ. Kimball’s blog have comments by others that used the name Jesus Christ but never from Kimball himself. What is the significance of this? I am not sure. It just seem a bit odd to me that’s all. I don’t want to make too much of this but as Christians we acknowledge the humanity of Jesus and His Deity in the person of Christ. Christ is His title, the Anointed One, the Messiah, the One sent from God. Oh, well maybe this is just another one of those factoids from the emerging church.
