Blogging has taken a back seat!

Sorry that I have been absent from the blogashpere for so long. I have been really busy with my church and life in general. On top of all that we have been having internet problems at the church for about a month. I have a lot to say as of late, but seem have less time to say it. The main issue that I am thinking about and reading about is the emerging church. I am reading a couple different books: Emerging Churches by Gibbs and Bolger and Blue Like Jazz by Miller. I would also like to read some books by Mclaren in the near future. I am trying to wrap my mind around this movement and the issue surrounding it. The main question in my mind is "is the emerging church movement overall good or bad for Christianity?" The secondary question is, "I have been conditioned to believe Post-modernism is bad, so how can churches and Christians now claim to be post-modern?" If you would like to help me in my quest for answers please feel free to post a comment. I hope to be blogging on a regular basis soon.

The real reason I leave this commment is that you should give me a hollar man. You can contact me through my blog or e-mail. Hope all is well and Lord bless! You guys are in my prayers.

emergent theology is whack... they don't stick to their guns on issues of theological importance (heaven, hell, salvation, and the like)

emergent methodology is closer to what Jesus had in mind than what usually goes on in todays church

(just my humble opinion)
