From the description:

John Jovan Markovic (from Andrews University) will discuss Emergent Christianity (AKA the Emerging Church), including its relation to Theistic Evolution, Mysticism, Ecumenical unity, the concept of worldview, the Second Vatican Council, and the new theology school of thought.

I do not have th time to spend watching a 90 minute video.

But, I have watched the first 30 minutes of this video.  It is captivating.  It is informative, in areas where I was NOT informed.  I am going to have to view it all.

Thank you for bringing it to our attention.

Well, this video is not really something new. It is just new window dressing for the same old thing. I will reserve further comments for later.

I may change my mind after I view the entire video.  But, for now, it has contained information that I consider to be of value and informative.

Just to be clear, my comment was not intending to critisize you  or anything you did or said. My comment is strictly talking about the content of this video. I have viewed the entire thing, so I wont be just talking through my hat as I respond here. :)

Very informative video by a very smart guy.  I just watched the whole thing; but after about 45 minutes it's all question and answer.

One think for sure, it confirms something I have seen in various charismatic churches - that they think we are already living in the Kingdom of God (aka the millennium).
