“If God has any new light to communicate, He will let His chosen and beloved understand it, without their going to have their minds enlightened by hearing those who are in darkness and error.”—Ellen White, Early Writings, 124
The Seventh-day Adventist Church travels in perilous waters at the end of time. Rick Howard points a spotlight on one of the dangerous icebergs looming close at hand: the emerging church movement.
Why so much concern and controversy over a movement that claims to promote a deeper experience with God? Meet It reveals the spiritualistic dangers hidden below the surface of emerging church theology and practice. Howard shows how Satan is using this movement to introduce errors such as Eastern mysticism, Roman Catholic spirituality, and ecumenical tendencies into God’s remnant church.
The prophet Isaiah cautioned: “To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them” (Isaiah 8:20). Meet It reveals what happens when Seventh-day Adventists disregard this warning and turn for spiritual counsel to authors and teachers who mix truth and error.
Picking up where his first book, The Omega Rebellion, left off, Howard probes the subtle nuances of the Omega apostasy that Ellen White warned would threaten God’s people. He discusses two specific examples of emerging church theology in the Adventist Church: The One Project and Alex Bryan’s book The Green Cord Dream.
“Meet It … shows exactly how emerging church errors, ecumenical pitfalls, occult techniques, New Age notions, pantheistic philosophy, and Roman Catholic mysticism have ever-so-slyly entered Adventism in the name of Jesus under the guise of promoting a closer ‘experience’ with God.”—Steve Wohlberg
