Here is a good description of what wrong with the emergent church:
And in typical clever (not) Emerging Church fashion what made Rollins stop and think is a parable written in much the same style as his own writings; it simply reverses the original. In this case the author of the parable takes the poem Footprints In The Sand and twists it backward; so instead of being a pretty accurate depiction of the one true and living God of the Bible, this “Footprints” introduces us further to the insipid god of Emergence Christianity:
There was once a man who had lived a long and difficult life… The curtain was pulled back, and he stumbled through the light to meet God.
‘My Master and my Friend,’ the old man hailed God as he prostrated himself before God’s feet. Hearing no reply, the man looked up and saw God shuffling awkwardly in his chair, not quite managing to fight back a blush across his cheeks…
‘Tell me, Lord,’ he said, knowing already the lines that would come, ‘tell me what the footprints mean.’… And slowly God replied, his voice shaking with emotion. ‘The years when you have seen only one set of footprints, my child, is when you carried me.’… (source)
