Like you, I consider the world around me and wonder at its tangles – most of all the failures of the church. People are fleeing the institution. Perhaps they experienced hypocrisy, dogmatism, dead tradition, shallowness or an overall lack of power. Maybe the people who left simply lost any sense of expectancy.
I believe the Church is something so wonderful and so powerful that anyone who even caught sight of it would be enthralled. I believe the church that is being rejected is one that shackled itself to modernism (an era of man’s reasoning), and that as modernism is being outgrown, so is that form of church.
Its time for fresh Christianity. I hope this blog will stimulate conversation to that end. May each of us discover what it means to be truly spiritual, and free children of God.
