Christian as very well noted his changing views. Arguably, if you have read this blog for a while, you’ll not that I have changed some of my views since the very beginning.
Here are some of mine:
I grew up fundamentalist. Oneness, but not, ever, and I mean this, pentcostal and I mean that. You hear me, don’t call me a pentecostal. Period. I attended Southern Baptist Churches and it barely made a dent. Obviously I am neither. Now. Or ever again, thank God.
I am not an Emergent kinda guy either. I do like the Ancient Future bit and see great hope in it and in people exploring spiritual disciplines.
I hold a high Christology. I don’t care about Chalcedon. My Christology, however, is tempered by studies in Second Temple Judaism.
I am a Christus Victor who sees it accomplished, as I have noted, somewhat accomplished in the PSA. But, I am Christus Victor. However, I am not adamantly so, so as to think that one is inspired and the only biblical atonement theory.
Yes, I assent to prima scriptura. Scripture is first and highest, but I recognize without Tradition, Experience and Reason, we wouldn’t have the canon.
I am High Church. High Sacramentarian, at least for the Eucharist and the Sacraments.
I think that a lot of things are flexible. Some aren’t, but even in those, I would like to be able to admit that I may be wrong.
I think that theology is among the highest forms of spiritual disciplines, so like Christian, I like the Methodist hymns. And liturgy. And the Methodist Church.
My eschatology is ‘panmillenial.’
Hell is real. Hell will have individuals there – although I am not committed to the fact that Acts 3.21 is a fanciful dream or a hyperbolic expression. People who reject the image of God which the Incarnation sanctified deserve what they get. Yes, I am an inclusivist. Yes, I am a Wrightian-Bartian-Willimonian believer in the New Creation.
God help me, but I love reading the Reformers – Zwingli, Luther and Calvin. Not Edwards. Blah.
We have so abused – Left and Right – the Cross and the name ‘Christian’ in our country. We should pray about it.
I want to see Christian burn at the stake. No, wait. I’m sorry. I meant Jeremy. I want to see Jeremy burn at the stake.
