No Mystical Divine Imperatives, Please

Whether we find it disguised as seeker-sensitive methodology, emergent (a)theology, or pentecostal visions and utterances, mysticism is alive and well in the confessing Christian church. The Redeemed Rambler writes on “God’s Own GPS – Derek Webb and Evangelical Mysticism and finishes with these zingers:

The point of this post is not homosexuality, nor Derek Webb, nor the gospel, but God’s revelation. Webb is only practicing what has become increasingly popular in evangelical churches these days, namely a kind of uninformed and undisciplined spirituality. The result is a triumph of the deceitful heart, masquerading as mystical Divine imperative. I suggest that we cultivate our spirituality by turning to Scripture, and seeking to obey God’s revelation there. Then, perhaps, God really will speak to us through his formative Word.

“Cultivate our spirituality by turning to Scripture.” It’s so clear.
