After reading this blog post, I felt disgusted with what this guy had to say. I was really disappointed to see yet another “emergent legalist” (I made that term up, but it fits nicely) damning churches, especially churches without membership, by-laws or elders. (What he said about worship, however, I mostly agreed with).
The one thing that frustrates me most about the emerging postmoderns (and moderns, as this guy seems to be) is how damning of churches they are. There has to be a way to fit things in and let everybody do church the way they see best. You think Christ came to have people argue over how to worship Him?
So that’s been stewing in my brain and I’ve been frustrated with Christians in general, and then I came across this presentation for a new book – A Contrarian’s Guide to Knowing God
Now THAT’S what I’m talking about. I need some time now to process that link (and I need to order the book for sure), but compassion for the ordinary person is where my heart is currently focused.
Passion for the Extraordinary, compassion for the ordinary. HEH!
