Now I know the source of some of the crude, rude comments about my Savior.

This stuff has been around awhile. About 2 years or so ago, the founder of SBCOutpost put up on his blog such a provocative post, referring similarly to what Jones does above about Jesus, that within two hours or so he took it down. His own circle of supporting commenters bucked him on it! To my knowledge, that's the only post SBCOutpost has ever taken down because of its unpopularity.

It grieves me when not only the irrelevant but also the mundane is paraded as something new, something cool, something profound.

Grace, David. I'll give you a call later. Check your email :^)

With that, I am...


P.S. For the record, I hope I did not come across indicting all junior high workers as corny or juvenile. I certainly did not intend such.

I have the same couple of thoughts as I read each of your posts on this subject. This sounds just like new packaging of the neo orthodoxy of 50+ years ago. I have not read the book but you have not reported a single concept that wasn't postulated 50 to 70 years ago by neo orthodox thinkers and churchmen. Funny thing is that such doctrine is what killed the church in the first place. The other thought that I have is tied into the fact the stat that says that the church is growing on ever continent except North America and Europe. I wonder if the doctrine of those churches more resembles traditional Christianity or the emergent variety.
