Why are people leaving Church? Rachel Held Evans blogged it, Bo shared it, and now we discuss it. Andrew Sullivan’s post that got the conversation started ‘Christianity in Crisis.’ In this conversation Tripp discusses three good reasons people are leaving the church
- Majoring in the Minors
- Lack of Intellectual Integrity
- Lack of Ethical Integrity
and then questions the impact of age programed ministry through college on the decline of the church. Why does Tripp have gay friends at Acts 29 churches?
Then we move on to discussing Jesus and his disciples packing heat. Bo previously blogged all the verses where Jesus mentions swords and then he ‘Walter Wink’s it’ by discussing turn the other cheek. Tripp then wonders about metaphysical violence and Process philosophy. We concluded by getting a little sermonic about the Biblical logic for universalism!
