The following link is to notes from Erwin McManus at a recent conference. After reading these, we are more surprised than ever that David Jeremiah and other Christian leaders stand behind the teachings of this emerging church leader. Notes by McManus: Whatever it takes!
For those who may wonder just what is at the basis of McManus’ spirituality, this quote by the author says it all:
The Barbarian Way [his book] was, in some sense, trying to create a volatile fuel to get people to step out and act. It’s pretty hard to get a whole group of people moving together as individuals who are stepping into a more mystical, faith-oriented, dynamic kind of experience with Christ. So, I think Barbarian Way was my attempt to say, “Look, underneath what looks like invention, innovation and creativity is really a core mysticism that hears from God, and what is fueling this is something really ancient.” Erwin McManus, Interview with Relevant Magazine (emphasis added)
Our question to David Jeremiah is this. Why? Why do you say:
I wish I could say I couldn’t put Seizing Your Divine Moment [McManus’ book] down. The fact is, I had to put it down many times to think about what I had just read! It motivated me like no book I have read in years. I marked almost every page and found myself saying “yes” out loud on several occasions. You owe it to yourself to “seize the moment” and read this book.- David Jeremiah – Senior Pastor, Shadow Mountain Community Church; President, Turning Point Radio.
