There are at least two significant distinctions between Emergent and Acts 29 – beside doctrinal issues.
The first is that Acts 29 (as I understand it) has a top-down orientation. That is fine for some circumstances, but it is not emergent. By definition, it is the opposite of emergent.
The second difference is that groups like Emergent Village are self-selecting membership. If someone says that they are a part of it … they get to be. Acts 29 is a denominational model. If you don’t meet their criteria, then you are out.
Thanks for the interesting read. I had thought about some of this stuff before but it was interesting to see your take on it.
