The latest issue of Modern Reformation has landed on the office doorstep and there is a short, but excellent article on the Insider Movement:
Maybe you haven’t heard but the most explosive issue in global missions within the evangelical church today is something called “insider movements.” You aren’t alone if you don’t know anything about it, as most of the evangelical world in the West knew nothing of the movement until about the year 2000…
But as Bill Nikides points out this movement is both unbiblical and contrary to the fundamental doctrine of the church. If you’re still not sure what it is, this is where people from other faiths become Christians but stay inside their faith organisations and systems – so here are some of the aliases you may have heard: “born again Islam, incarnational Jesus movements, Jesus Muslims, Messianic Muslims” and so on.
I’ve seen this movement in action in India, seen it decimating a church – perhaps you haven’t come across it, but it’s both dangerous and insidious.
