Dear Emergents- Calvin Has Something to Say to You

It must be regarded as a fixed principle that all modes of worship devised by man are detestable. The infatuation is placed in a still stronger light by the Psalmist (Psalm 115:8), when he shows how aid is implored from dead and senseless objects, by beings who have been endued with intelligence for the very purpose of enabling them to know that the whole universe is governed by Divine energy alone. But as the corruption of nature hurries away all mankind collectively and individually into this madness, the Spirit at length thunders forth a dreadful imprecation, “They that make them are like unto them, so is every one that trusteth in them.  — John Calvin

The anthropocentric worship of the Emergents and their ilk are madness and worthy of nothing but utter detestation.
