What is a progressive #hipster pastors?

in connection to Charles Page “what does “emergent” mean when connected to Church, #Emergent Church?”

Henry Volk [11/21/2015 6:48 AM]
Either a postmodern or a Calvinist.

John Kissinger [11/21/2015 6:49 AM]
seen some arminian as well – what’s your hipster score?

Henry Volk [11/21/2015 6:51 AM]
I can claim the beard, tattoo, flannel, glasses, and the pipe, but that’s about it. No skinny jeans in my wardrobe! Lol

John Kissinger [11/21/2015 6:53 AM]
No bike?

Henry Volk [11/21/2015 6:56 AM]
No. I mean I probably need one. It’d help me shed a few pounds lol.

John Kissinger [11/21/2015 7:27 AM]
and get skinny jeans on 🙂

Henry Volk [11/21/2015 7:29 AM]
No, still no skinny jeans lol.

John Kissinger [11/21/2015 8:53 AM]
so you smoke a pipe but draw the line at skinny jeans? 🙂

Brody Pope [11/21/2015 9:41 AM]
Just the mustache and the beard for me. Well, somewhat of a beard lol.

John Kissinger [11/21/2015 9:42 AM]
oh even Alan N Carla Smith has more than that Brody 🙂

Brody Pope [11/21/2015 9:43 AM]
Lol. I’m growing a full one, its just in its development stages.

John Kissinger [11/21/2015 9:43 AM]
seems chart does NOT include the V-neck 🙂 Rick

Brody Pope [11/21/2015 9:44 AM]
Every “preacher” I’ve met that meets those points are not Pentecostal. Mostly non-denominational with a Baptist belief system.

John Kissinger [11/21/2015 9:48 AM]
I wish that was true for me BTW what is “a Baptist belief system?” Charles Page has a primitve Baptist belief system…

Brody Pope [11/21/2015 9:48 AM]
They are Baptist.

David M. Hinsen [11/21/2015 11:21 AM]
We have some COG Pastors that look like this

David M. Hinsen [11/21/2015 11:22 AM]
Well, minus the pipe

John Kissinger [11/21/2015 11:24 AM]
Alan N Carla Smith minus the pipe and plus the #ToT

Charles Page [11/21/2015 11:47 AM]
I like the smell of cherry pipe tobacco!

David M. Hinsen [11/21/2015 11:50 AM]
Some say the emergent church is too difficult to define. Dan Kimball has a book called The Emergent Church: Vintage Christianity for New Generations. It was a required read for one of my classes at Lee. He believes that what the emergent church was supposed to be was a shift in outreach to a post-modern society but has morphed into something it wasn’t supposed to be and is now too difficult to define. It wasn’t supposed to be a theological study as it has become. He believes, according to his book, that churches should move away from the seeker-sensitive movement and more towards a real experience for people, especially the post-modern society we are trying to minister to. Ultimately, his train of thought is allowing people to experience the real Jesus instead of the watered down version that is presented at times. Of course there are many points, or at least some points to disagree with in Kimballs overall approach. But his loose definition would be a church that is coming out from behind something, such as a watered down approach and presenting vintage Christianity.

Greg Robinson [11/22/2015 6:55 PM]
Mustache only. :~)

John Kissinger [11/24/2015 4:22 PM]
Oh yeah and the #SHAWL When did preachers start wearing a shawl Peter A Vandever Did I miss the shawl memo? Alan N Carla Smith

Alan N Carla Smith [11/24/2015 4:27 PM]
i have worn a #tallit when I’ve preached. I have a full beard (only during November) otherwise goatee, glasses and wear these comfy shoes. I also wear blue jeans and claim lineage back to the tribe of Levi. 😉

    It’s all about plausibledeniability. Get in and get out.

    Police: was that you disturbing the peace?
    Preacher: what peace?
    Police: we got some complaints
    Preacher: you always say that
    Police: you can’t do that here
    Preacher: I was just leaving
    Police: Jesus didn’t make people uncomfortable
    Preacher: you never read the Bible
    Police: I’m going to arrest you
    Preacher: you need to repent, that badge won’t save on the day of judgment.
    Police: get your finger out of my face
    Preacher: how can you walk by the dope man and shut down the preacher
    Police: you’re offending people
    Preacher: their conscience is hard, they need stirring up.
    Police: you gotta leave
    Preacher: God bless you officer, I’ll see you next week!

    I been some of these progressive type churches. They have great bands, they sing songs that nobody knows and few that people can actually sing. Once in awhile they say it’s wrong to sleep with some one if you’re not married. But rarely rebuke sin outright. They’re all progressive sanctification too. But of course they don’t use Bible language like repent or righteousness or blood and if they say faith they mean in some contextual way and not for effective praying according to God’s word. Oh and they love the NIV.
