Something a little different from me

Anyone who has read my blog knows that I hardly ever address issues of a theological nature. My husband’s blog had enough of that for one family. However, as you might imagine, Mark talks theology a good bit around our house. In conversations with him, I have had the opportunity to hear about all the controversy surrounding the AAPC conferences and now the whole PCA debate about NT Wright. In the midst of these “controversies,” I have often asked the questions, “Why does the debate have to be so devisive? Aren’t these men Christians?” This article, a link from George Grant’s blog, provides some clear thinking from a pastor that I think all of those involved in the discussion (whether actually in it or just watching from the sidelines like me) should heed.

  1. I have high hopes for this essay. I knew it was in the works and I was really pleased when I finally read it, sort of a gentle goose from the trunk of a bull elephant.

    We’ll see…

    Meanwhile, I’ll be giving Pastor Booth’s article to my session. My pastor knows & respects Steve Wilkins but our little band of intrepid AAPC supporters has caused a rumbling among the REs. [shudder]

  2. Jennifer,

    I have to agree with you completely. I don’t really understand how everything seems to end up with one side anathematizing the other. It just seems so….off.
