The answer to who said that was John Shelby Spong.
The reason we did this is because John Shelby Spong is a crack pot liberal who denies fundamental Christian doctrines such as the substitionary atonement and attacks and denies that he Bible is the inerrant word of God. Yet, this quote sounds exactly like something that any of these Emergents could or has said (especially McLaren).
The Emergents claim that they are a 'third way' or a synthesis and middle ground between liberalism and conservatism. Yet, they are coming to the same conclusions as "modern" liberals. The Emergent movement is nothing more than a Post-Modern form of Liberalism.
