Mennonites and Prayer Labyrinths

Labyrinths, Labyrinths Everywhere!

Are you aware that when 900 or so of our youth and their sponsors went to San Antonio this past Easter to the national youth conference, they were encouraged to participate in a prayer labyrinth? Four years earlier, in L.A. they were also given this opportunity. Students at Fresno Pacific are given the chance each year to walk a labyrinth set up by one of the Bible classes, and seminary students also participate in a prayer labyrinth in their spiritual formation course. Also, an article in the Christian Leader encouraged the use of a labyrinth. So, what is a prayer labyrinth?

McLaren’s Bible Interpretation promoted by Menno Weekly

“Scripture is something God had ‘let be,’ and so it is at once God’s creation and the creation of the dozens of people and communities and cultures who produced it” -Brian McLaren, p. 162 Generous Orthodoxy, Following Jesus Christ without the Bible

In their slide into further apostasy, Menno Weekly’s most recent blog posting encourages readers to watch a video from author Brian McLaren, Anabaptist empathizer and blogger for Menno Weekly. In this video, because McLaren believes that scripture is just the creation of man, he has the audacity to say that “Maybe what we should do is to get Jesus to edit the Lord’s prayer … to sound more like the way we think.”

What McLaren is promoting here is the social gospel of this world, not the gospel of the Kingdom of our Lord. The problem with this theory is that even non-believers would agree with what is said in this video. This is what happens when men change God’s Word to mean what they think it should mean. Brian McLaren has said that Everything Must Change, and he has certainly been busy making that change come about. Too bad some Mennonites are encouraging his personal interpretation of the words of Jesus, because in doing so, they may also be partnering with Lucifer.

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake [as they were] moved by the Holy Ghost. 1 Peter 1: 20,21
