This post is from the defunct blog “Dying Church”
Has anyone else noticed that so much of the discussion going on about the reformation of the church is about style and not substance. Has the church and its theologians gone in totally different directions? There seems to be much more discussion about engaging the church rather than engaging Christ of late, in books and in blogs. Are we taking the substence and our theology for granted? Personally I think it is a both/and but I think we default to style because it is easier to talk about then the theology of our church. I hear that the theology is out of touch but I think that is an oversimplification. It may be out of touch but maybe because we have atrophied the muscles needed to reach for it. Just some thoughts.
