While the emerging church (EC) tends to focus on different areas, one of the main emphases is on the life and ministry of Jesus. This means that the EC crowd tends to place a high priority on the Gospels then on Paul’s letters. It also means that they try to model their lives after Jesus: fellowshipping with the outcast, loving the unlovable, hanging out outside the religious establishment, etc.
However, this emphasis on Jesus’ life leaves me asking an important question:
Do they pray for the sick, cast out demons, raise the dead and see other sings and wonders? Or do emerging folks tend to be cessationist? If not, then where are the Pentecostal and Charismatic emerging church leaders?
I ask because in all my reading this spring, I have heard nothing on this topic. Yet, if postmodernism is a worldview shift, then the Pentecostal/Charismatic church would need to change along with the Evangelical and Mainline churches. So, where are the Pentecostal/Charismatic emerging church leaders?
