Christianity in America is/was/will-ever-be changing. We’re in the middle of it, and can’t see the endgame. We’ll still try to look ahead at where things are going, though. I’m sure I’m wrong, but what I see: Mainlines won’t necessarily die off, but they’ll continue to free-fall. Those left will either end up in progressive social […]
I agree that some of the “aha” moments seem kind of weak. I even found myself reasoning through some potential explanations that didn’t fall back on some kind of inerrancy argument. Still, the series is good if for no other reason than to show others that one doesn’t need to hold to some kind of […]
Have any of you been reading Peter Enns’ “aha” moments series? He’s posting the personal stories of moments of discovery from scholars and pastors who confronted those moments when they realized something in the Bible didn’t add up the way they were taught.

It’s not just you. The world is bat-s**t crazy.

I could deal with that, too. Still, I think I’d rather not have a “big name” human to look up to. I’d much rather hear from a few thousand little voices who point to the big Name. If we had that, we wouldn’t need the new shiny to distract us.
A most happy and blessed Easter to you all.
I’m glad y’all are talking about the whole World Vision thing. I haven’t posted this anywhere else yet, and was considering putting it out on FB/G+. I’m unsettled, though. It’ll provoke a reaction, but will it make anyone think? That’s a lot to ask from today’s social media. I’ll sit on it for a while […]
