Here is what he said in "EAT THIS BOOK" (Erdmans 2006, page 44) "We want a spirituality that is world-embracing, all experience-encompassing.....We are finding out about the remarkable spiritualities in Australian bush aborigines....HOW CAN WE BE SATISFIED TO BE PEOPLE OF ONE BOOK?!!"
Holy Book, Batman! Message Bibleman Peterson just said we need more than Holy God's Word for spirituality! This heresy is compounded by the fact that he seeks to equate God's Holy Word with the earth-based pagan religions of the god of this world! This is precisely what the Emerging Church movement is.
To them, the Bible is just a book of stories, nice stories...but "we need a fresh way to 'know God'. So they are okay with the faiths of other gods that Jehovah has specifically warned against from antiquity - hinduism, buddhism, islam etc....for the Emergents, it is all about "the Story". There is no doctrine, no moral law and no hell - ask Doug Paggitt from Minnesota's Solomon Porch.
So this movement, birthed by its guru Brian MacLaren and others see nothing wrong with gay marriage, abortion and other lifestyle choices...and are leading an entire generation of so-called "evangelicals" away from the faith. It is so bad that extensive surveys by both the Barna Group and The Pew Center for Religion have confirmed that between 56% and 57% of "evangelicals" believe there are other ways to Heaven than Jesus!
Brethren, the Exhortation from the Apostle Paul is to examine yourself daily to see if you are in the Faith. It is better to get this extremely correct NOW, because a day is coming when The Way, the Truth and the Life will say to those who call Him "Lord, Lord...didn't I sell millions of books or "preach" to Millions, or made many strange looking nooming DVD's in Your Name"?!
Matthew 7:23 "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.'"
The Literal meaning of those final Words from Jesus to those who have a change of mind, when it is too late is "GO AWAY FROM ME, I WAS NEVER AWARE OF YOU AT ANY TIME, YOU WHO OPERATED AGAINST RIGHTEOUSNESS or the LAW or MY WORD.
