Paul or Apollos?
A long time ago the apostle Paul wrote of the folly of falling into "camps" (see 1 Cor 3).
Yet how come we never learn?
Today I came across some interesting blogs such as emergentno, Slice of Laodicea and Steve Camp's A1M (which sounds like a UK road!). The title of the first one gives away what they are about.
People doing good ministry stuff (and in fairness Camp says some good points).
But why do we feel the need to spend so much energy exposing "heresy" and critisizing others?
Of course its good to have conversation and discuss stuff, and there is also a time for doctrine etc.
But why does my being right mean everyone else must be wrong?
Surely God is bigger than this?
It comes back to something I said a couple of days ago:
"Lets get a broad understanding and view of what life in God looks like - sometimes it may take us by surprise".
Please no more knee-jerk. Lets get real - the world is changing. Post Chrisendom is here in the West. Lets celebrate all God is doing through the many "streams" - emerging, reformed or whatever label you chose.
