By using this simple approach, I believe Christians should be able to discern whether or not a group or a teacher is rooted and grounded in biblical theology. And they will be able to do that by using four mathematical operations (+, -, X, and /).
One of my favorite disciplines under the umbrella of theology is the what is called contemporary theology. Marrying this to the style of apologetics, to the beginnings of my journeying into apologetics, I was involved in what would be called today, counter cult apologetics. If you think of it, contemporary theology and cult movements in our culture really make for an interesting blog post. This is where I want to begin a series on what is called the New Apostolic Reformation. Before I do that, I want address what I consider to be the “initial camel in the tent” which led to this new wave in modern Christendom. That “camel” is what is known as contemplative prayer.
