Postmodern Legalism (The Emergent Church)
Here is a quote I found while reading Tony Jones’ Postmodern Youth Ministry
“We must end the false dichotomy between justification and sanctification (133).”
Jones had been speaking about salvation and how justification is not a one time thing and how it is a process. The implication of this view is that the way you get justified, is by becoming just (not imputed righteousness). The way you are to do this according to the emergent view, is by getting involved in a Christian Community and learning the Christian language. As you do this you become more and more sanctified which is the same as becoming more justified.
May the Lord open their eyes,
P.S. I realize that this is not the view of everyone in the emergent church.
