The Unfundamental Conversion

DSCN2755

At my old church in South East Asia, we prayed one prayer more than any other. Or maybe two. But there was one prayer that kept coming up over and over – Lord, let your kingdom come, on earth. Or, let your glory fall on this place. I have a problem with the whole idea …

175 Freedom for a Man

R.L. Stollar has nailed it once again. And I oh.so.relate.  Here he talks about the days when instead of praying, “help me with my unbelief,” he screams out this instead: But it’s even harder when you are like me, when you daily wrestle with depression and suicidal thoughts. When life isn’t just filled with pain …

Andrew Robert Baxter Designs The Ground of Alien Technologjmy

While I do not fully agree with Dr. R.C. Sproul, this entry is indebted to his lectures on contemporary theology. Lately I haven’t been writing the series on the 20th century theologians and philosophers who influenced progressive Christianity because I’ve been out travelling (OMG, I hiked down the Grand Canyon!!). Anyway, I already covered Tillich …

I brought up Calvinism in my post yesterday because I think its a great example of how my evangelical understanding of the Bible shaped me. I also bring this up because for me, leaving Calvinism freed me to leave the fundamental faith. Let me explain with this example. Think of fundamentalism as the foundation and …

Homeshcool Socialization

I think ideas do matter. Because we are not just emotion, but are also mind, our ideas effect how we relate to other people (and if your a Christian, your view of God). For example, I no longer believe everyone who is not a Christian goes to hell. This has changed my view of other …
