The emerging church has its own movie now. Blue Like Jazz is a film based on Donald Miller’s best-selling autobiographical book by the same title about rejecting Southern Baptist Christianity, going wild in the world, and eventually settling on an emerging approach that is not much more than a Christianized version of the world. True to its “culturally liberal” philosophy, the emerging movie is “full of cussing and references to drugs and sexuality, and it seems like the main character has a beer in his hand during nearly every scene” (“Blue Like Jazz Director Steve Taylor Says Film Isn’t Christian,” Christian Post, April 19, 2012). Ah, the glories of “cultural liberalism”! See “The Emerging Church Loves to Drink,” www.wayoflife.org.
