Open Thread: Union with Christ/Real Presence of Christ

UPDATE: I’m still holding firm on the indulgence granted to those who want to convert me to their version of Christianity, but let me say two things: 1) The thread is a discussion of a question, not a discussion of my errant views of whatever you believe and 2) I can’t respond to all of […]

Noted: Mark Driscoll on “The Shack”

UPDATE: A lurker suggests that Driscoll or his researcher were reading Challies’ post on The Shack. Decide for yourself. Just one note: Driscoll seems unaware of the book’s opening chapters and the dilemma that lies at the center of the plot. It is not a book about a conversation with the Trinity. It is a […]

iMonk 101: Reduced to Jesus

I’d forgotten about this one. Really, this is so very much what I have to say to anyone about the whole business of being a Christian. I couldn’t write anything today more on target with my journey to a Jesus-Shaped spirituality. Read: Reduced to Jesus

Put A Warning On The Gospels

Is it just me, or are some Christians putting too much emphasis on the Gospels? There’s a lot of talk about the Kingdom of God in the Gospels. That gets many people off on the wrong track entirely. Some people are always quoting the parables or Jesus’ sermons. All of these things need some further […]

How I’ve Changed: Ten Ways

A friend of mine recently said, “It sure seems that you’ve gone through a lot of phases during your time as a blogger.” I’m sure it seems that way, but most of that is an illusion of the blogging life. The people around me wouldn’t have any major change in my beliefs to report since […]
