Examples of Mature Christianity: Part One
I’ve stumbled into a group of Christian bloggers who are all amazing. They really extend a ton of grace by associating with me at all. So I would love to leverage my 15 (thousand!) readers to give them some praise.
I’m calling this series “Examples of Mature Christianity” because there aren’t enough examples of it out there in the blogosphere nowaday. The world thinks Christians are all just a bunch of “blind faith” “abortion doctor killing” “creationists” who want Santorum to run the country and turn it “back” into a theocracy. We really don’t need any more of those types of voices on the net — do we!? So, over the next few weeks read a bit from folks who have let their Christian beliefs actually sink into their souls and give them new and fresh perspectives which have sincerely shaped their behaviors and lifestyles. We don’t all think the same thing, because we’re people too, not just Bible believers!
Matt Boulter at “Religiocity” blogs about Christianity, gender/sexuality issues, worship and theology. I appreciate his insights and how he shares his theological journey so well. This post resonates really strongly with me because of how Hauerwas helped shape my understanding of how Christians relate to society in general. My advice to anyone interested in Christianity in the public sphere: start with “Resident Aliens” and graduate to Donald Kraybill’s “The Upside Down Kingdom”. But for now, enjoy Matt’s post how Christians sometimes just “make stuff up”.
