Positive, Evolving Change

Brian McLaren was one of the first people who reviewed our book. I have always found him a voice of logic and reason in a spiritual world that is often lacking in those areas. This piece talks about his belief that Christians are in denial over the ongoing change of their faith. While he points out numerous areas where the Church has changed over the centuries, he still finds many clinging to the Old Testament and traditions mindlessly passed down through the generations.

“The call to be a Christian and a follower of God and of Jesus, that call is a call to the future and not a call to the past. My Christian identity is more about joining God in the healing, restoration and development and evolution of the world moving toward a brighter, richer and deeper future. Whereas the identity of joining the Christianity apart from an evolutionary understanding is joining the ranks and we’re holding the lines of something that is 2,000 years old.”
