This blog is about this.

May 18, 2006

I’m a youngish (31) liberal protestant Christian. I like people like Spong and Borg and Fosdick. I have always been a liberal protestant Christian, it was the faith of my fathers; so in a sense I am a traditionalist. I am not an ex-fundamentalist.

Now, liberal protestantism may or may not have run its course, but the underlying issues and challenges that the early liberals faced and (often reluctantly) embraced and their brothers the fundamentalists faced and defied still exist.

Christianity has yet to finalise its response to the new society it played a part in creating over the last few centuries, and the new society has yet to finalise its reponse to Christianity. Things are still in flux, and a spirit moves over the waters.

This blog is about this.
