Progressive Theology

People rag on Paul

because he did not speak loudly enough

about freeing the slaves

or giving voice to women

It is important to note that

for that time

the steps that he did take were huge,

calling for the inclusion of Gentiles,

for a master to acknowledge his escaped slave

as a brother,

and boldly stating that there is

neither Jew nor Gentile,

nor slave nor free,

nor man nor woman

in Christ;

but we would be foolish to stop there,

just in the same way that our Founding Fathers

espoused liberty while withholding rights

from many.

No, it would millennia before

the Paul saw the freeing of slaves,

the protections of the immigrant,

and the giving of authority to women.

Just as Jesus did not come to abolish the law

but rather fulfill it

we strive not to debunk Paul’s asserts

but rather to see them come to true fruition

it is progressive theology.

Just as God is not quick to act,

but rather takes His time in seeing His will be done,

so too does society take its time to get where it needs to go.

We must continue to be both active and patient in that regard,

knowing that growth, whether personal or society,

takes time,

but eventually that Kairos time does come.

 

Proponent of a New Life

What are we talking about,

when we talk about salvation?

What are we saving each other from

…or to?

 

When Jesus saves, He saves completely

You are free, totally free

there is a transformation there.

I’ve seen too often that “salvation”

being a transition not into anything new,

but as a baptism back into the ordinary,

nothing changes,

only now you dress up on Sundays.

My friends, if you still recognize yourself

after being saved,

you are looking in the wrong place.

We are freed indeed,

from our former selves,

from everything.

Live the life you always wanted

in Him.

 

The LORD GOD is so good.
