Brian McLaren at RCA GS in June

I saw this in the newsletter sent out by the Central College. BRIAN MCLAREN TO SPEAK AT RCA GENERAL SYNOD — Noted Christian author and lecturer, Brian McLaren, will be a keynote speaker at the RCA General Synod (June 8-13) at Central this summer. McLaren, author of The Church on the Other Side: Doing Ministry in the Postmodern Matrix, Finding Faith, and A Generous Orthodoxy, will address delegates on Saturday night, June 10. Time magazine listed McLaren as one of America’s 25 most influential evangelicals in 2005. To access additional information on Brian McLaren go to www.anewkindofchristian.com. Why is it that the RCA seems compelled to bring in speakers of questionable theology? First is was Anne Lamott whose views on abortion cause me to shudder being a speaker at the RCA women's trienial. Now this will be presented to GS delegates. Of course would they ever consider having someone with solid theology speak? Probably not, it might offend people in the liberal wings of the denomination. Well, for the record I am offended by this.

I am a member of an RCA congregation also. I find the fact that Brian McClaren spoke at the RCA synod very disturbing. I believe he is a false prophet and very dangerous.
