The Third Way Politics and the Third Way Heresy

Several months ago, I posted an article by Brannon Howse titled "Newt Gingrich and the Third Way." The article stated that he believed the politics of the Third Way was connected with the New Apostolic Reformation. Although this may be true politically, there is more behind it than it appears.

To backtrack, globalists like Tony Blair, Al Gore, Bill Clinton, and Newt Gingrich promote “Third Way” thinking, which combines Socialism with Capitalism to create a so-called third political alternative. Also included in the article is proof that Newt is an environmentalist, and that he is friends with Alvin Toffler, author of  “Third Wave” also known as “Third Way.” Since the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) crowd has shown support of Newt, and now more recently Sarah Palin and Rick Perry, Brannon believes these charismatics to be the Third Way religion. With evidence that I found in Marilyn Ferguson's "The Aquarian Conspiracy," the Third Way religion is a group other than the NAR crowd, and is actually the Emergent Church. 

In chapter 1 of her book, which is considered a classic of New Age literature, she uses the words "emergent" "emerging" and "emergence" repeatedly. She also used the phrase the Third Way. Along with the following evidence, I believe the Emergent Church spirituality is the the Third Way religion.

A while ago, Rick Warren, who we long have established as being overly supportive of globalist goals, showed his support of and praised the Emergent church. Although the Emergent church does not have clear-cut beliefs, Rob Bell disclosed in his recent book that he is a Universalist - which would lead one to believe that this is one of their beliefs. Universalism is the wave of the future. I base this conclusion on from the work the Vatican has been doing with the ecumenical work - joining all the religions of the world into one. So, this makes the perfect progression from Christianity to heresy:

 Christian Church to Emergent Church to Ecumenism to Universalism to Bahá'í Faith 

Wikipedia says that the Emergent Church got their name from JoHann Baptist Metz, a Catholic theologian interested in the Frankfort School writings. One of his works was titled "The Emergent Church." He was a German Catholic; a faith that combined the mystical and political.[1] I have never done any research on Emergent's Brian McClaren, but I suspect he has a connection with the New Age movement and the writings of the Johann Metz.

As a comparison, the foundational teachings of the New Apostolic Reformation (and the Word of Faith) are essentially Christian, except for some of their teaching on the metaphysical aspects of the Holy Spirit. Contrasting NAR with the Universalist beliefs of the Emergent church, it is more blatantly in error.

Another point - the Emergent church uses the words "Global village" in many of their writings. You will find that John Naisbitt, a New Age futurist who wrote the Forward in Marilyn Ferguson's book, has an article where he uses the words "Global village" in his writing.

It is interesting to note that one of the aspects of the Emergent church teachings is that of Missional living. Missional living is a term that describes a missionary lifestyle; adopting the thinking, behaviors, and practices of a missionary in order to engage others with the gospel message. Based on a Wikipedia author,
the five distinctives that form the foundation of the missional perspective are:
  1. The Church is sent by Jesus Christ
  2. The Church is sent with the Cross
  3. The Church is sent in Community
  4. The Church is sent to every Culture
  5. The Church is sent for the King and His Kingdom 
These are all essentially true, but the government is accomplishing this act with the help of the Church, which makes it an act of World Socialism.

Do you see any similarity with that of the symbol used on Marilyn Ferguson's book at the top of this article? Also note that it is the shape of the Illuminati triangle. This modern way of missional living is a counterfeit to genuine Christianity's missions work. Let's look at this symbol more closely. The three intertwining circles also have the numbers 6-6-6 within them.

Where else have we seen this? Bill Schnoebelen states in his book "Blood on the Doorposts":
"A disguised interlocked trio of sixes, symbolic of the anti-christ. Also symbolizes the triple goddess of Wicca. Commonly used in Catholic liturgical iconography, and has recently found its way into the logo of the New King James Bible."
(And I liked the NKJV!)

Lastly, ConspiracyArchive has this to say about the new model for global totalitarianism and the Third Way symbol.
With the creation of the United Nations, free-trade zones, public-private partnerships, communitarianism, some 30,000+ NGOs [non-government organizations] and 37,000+ Multinational Corporations and Foundations, we now see a devolution of the government. Globalization has effectively achieved a global corporate fascism. To better illustrate the scope of it all, I've reproduced a compilation of charts from The United Nations' Global Straightjacket:
Reinvented Government = Communitarianism = The Third Way = Reinvented Communitarianism

Global Corporate Fascism
“In time, those industrialists who empowered the NGOs will 'rule the world' through 'reinvented government.'”  - Joan Veon, The United Nations' Global Straightjacket p.87
So it goes to show, nothing is what it appears. It pays to take a look at the history of every movement, because it may have a root of evil.
