A fantastic and vital contribution! Schimmel's research of the last 30 years brilliantly connects all the dots. What he has done in The Submerging Church resonates with Lighthouse Trails, Roger Oakland, Ray Yungen, and Warren Smith.--David Dombrowski, Lighthouse Trails Chief Editor
Joe Schimmel's new outstanding DVD titled The Submerging Church has now been added to the Lighthouse Trails collection of products that help the body of Christ identify the "new" spirituality that has heavily permeated the Christian church. Joe has been able to capsulate the key points of the contemplative, emerging movement. If you have friends and family members who just don't get it, The Submerging Church will open their eyes.
The two and a half hour 2-DVD set exposes the spiritual outlooks of key figures in the emerging church/contemplative movement such as Rob Bell, Brian McLaren, Mark Driscoll, Rick Warren, Dan Kimball, Tony Campolo, and others. This hard-hitting, captivating DVD will leave no doubt in the viewer's mind that the underlying nature of the "new" Christianity being promoted by these men is part of the great delusion that the Bible tells us will take place prior to the second coming of Jesus Christ. Whether they do it knowingly or unknowingly, they are taking millions of people down a slippery slope of deception. This is one DVD every Christian (and their friends and family) should see! Below is a synopsis of the DVD and two videos clips from the DVD.
Some of the topics this DVD set covers:
1. Bono and his role in the emerging church
2. Rick Warren's Daniel Plan
3. Rick Warren's P.E.A.C.E. Plan
4. The Emergent Church: Its beginning and its leaders
5. The role mysticism and contemplative spirituality play in the emerging church
6. Understanding Islam in view of the emerging church, Rick Warren, and the Church at large
7. Mark Driscoll's promotion of contemplative spirituality, his immoral presentation, and his denegrated view of the end-times and those who believe we are in them.
8. The role that homosexuality plays in the "new" spirituality
9. How the emerging church and the Purpose Driven movement are preaching "another gospel"
10. How Paul Smith's Calvary-Chapel-published book,The New Evangelicalism, while rightly exposing Peter Drucker's role in this "new" Christianity, omits Calvary Chapel's move toward deception
11. The unbiblical eschatology of the emerging church and the Purpose Driven movement
