George MacDonald Gets Me.

Hello all!

It’s been a crazy week of schooling and I have been pretty pressed for time. I still plan to finish my second post on theology (my central rule for thinking through any part of theology) really soon. However, I am going to need to change up the plan for this week and post something else…that I didn’t have to take the time to write.

This week I simply want to redirect you to another blog for a good read. Many people close to me know that over the last couple of years I had really began a large shift in my theology and my Christian faith. People I am around often will disagree, or find themselves worried about me because I am “drifting for the norm.”

First of all, I think that there is something healthy about thinking things afresh and working through them on our own. Also, There is something strange to me about selecting a theological school of thought and saying, “Yupp they’ve got it. No need to think any further.” Now I’m not saying that is what they are doing, but I would like us to continue to dismiss assumptions and really think through what we hold to be true.

I honestly find myself getting more in touch with the traditional thoughts of the faith, not just the 16th century reformers, and moving closer to the faith held by the earliest followers of Jesus. I think I am getting closer to Jesus Himself, and that is what this blog is about.

Brian Zahnd, a pastor of a church in Missouri, wrote a post about a man named George MacDonald and his theological journey. Brian found much in common with him and so do I. I really think there is much to take away from what George MacDonald writes here, so enjoy!

I’ll be back on track next week! Until then, keep looking to Jesus and striving to bring His kingdom here!
