At that point, a couple people shouted from the back, "Way to go, Tony. We love what you're doing. Keep it up!" I said, "Listen, I'm not trying to be a martyr here, I just want to know why is pinning me down so important? Why do you have such a passion to categorize me?"Source (emphasis mine)
About then, another guy spoke up: "OK, then why don't you just put the argument to rest and make a definitive statement about what Emergent believes about absolute truth."
I replied, "Emergent doesn't have a position on absolute truth, or on anything for that matter. Do you show up at a dinner party with your neighbors and ask, 'What's this dinner party's position on absolute truth?' No, you don't, because it's a non-sensical question."
Well, while asking what a dinner party's position on absolute truth may be silly to this man it is not anything like asking him (a pastor & public speaker) to define something that he admits he prescribes to. And what the heck? A supposedly Christian pastor doesn't have a position on absolute truth, OR ANYTHING ELSE?!!!!!! What about Christ's divine nature? What about His resurrection? What about the infaliblity of the Bible? Come on man, if you're going to say the EM is Christian let's hear your beliefs!
