Casting Pearls

In a discussion about the change in thinking of certain modern theologians in the Bible Truth Discussion Forum we have these pearls.

Ken Gilmore: This of course leaves me to wonder whether a Unitarian Christology similar to ours will eventually emerge among a minority of academic evangelicals. NT Wright's views on the afterlife hint that significant change is possible. To paraphrase, Robert Jastrow, "At this moment it seems as theology will never be able to raise the curtain on the mystery of the Bible. For the theologian who has lives by his faith in the Westminster Confession, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of Christadelphians who have been sitting there for decades."

Fortigurn: Modern Christians hark back to the historic peace churches such as the Quakers and Mennonites when seeking evidence that Christianity has not always been in support of slavery, and to make the argument that not all Christians 'got it wrong'. One day we will be one of the denominations used by contemporary Christians to demonstrate that not all Christians 'got it wrong' over the state of the dead, the atonement, Satan and demons, and the identity of Christ. It's reassuring to know that we're a significant part of a Christian tradition which will one day be lauded rather than vilified. Incredible as it may seem, some Christadelphians are unhappy about this, and don't want to know about the churches changing their beliefs and becoming more aligned with ours.

Did anyone else interprete that the same way as I did?

  1. Sorry, but this is eloquent garbage. The content is just layer upon layer of confusion. You guys are in a dream and need to wake up several times.

    There is no time of future blessing, you are not the Correct Ones that Have The Truth, no matter how smug you feel in your position. There is very little truth in what you Know To Be True.

    Jesus isn't coming back and God isn't watching over the earth waiting to pronounce a time of future restoration for people that wear hats and offer limp handshakes on Sunday morning.

    This is the life to be had; live it now. We are fortunate to have life. Compassion for others is the core of the Christian message. That's about it.
