What Are You?

From Jason Evans I've said this before and I'll say it again simply because it has been alesson learned the hard way for me. You will never know who you are if all youtalk about is what you aren't. Man, ain't that the truth. I read this yesterday and it just stuck inmy head. So what am I? I know what I am against, but putting inotwords what I am for is a lot harder. I think that is one of the things that bothers me alot with all of the emergent and postmodern talk. I agree that there is something wrong with the church today. I agree that culture has changed alot, that there must be new thoughts and new ideas. But now I am ready to do something about it. Honestly, I am not smart enough to sit around and philosophize all day and night about deconstructionism and the like. I wish I was, but I am not.

I resigned at my church yesterday! Just two more weeks and I am gone.

There now... yes... yes... I see that hand ... and that one ... and the one way back by the fig tree ... yes! Now, please, while Bart plays another chorus, I'd like you to start moving down through the center of the crowd ... yes, those who raised their hand. I want to know if you really mean business. I'd like to lead you in a prayer ... " Keith Green in Whats Wrong With the Gospel Part 2 Man, I love Keith Green.
