Here’s some stuff that I have in the works. I’m pretty busy right now, so i don’t want to post them without giving the topics the attention they deserve.
Soteriological Integrity– I have been reading Total Truth by Nancy Pearcey. This is not the thrust of the book, but something that has come to mind while reading it. It occurred to me, that my view of salvation, while in theory and word was Biblical, it was not a whole Biblical perspective in practice. Here’s what I mean. I would say that I believed that the plan of salvation was not a plan that was tacked on to restore the creative order, but a plan that was in place from the very beginning, before the fall. But in practice, I did not show this to be the truth. It was soteriological disintegration on my part. I still talked of salvation and the Gospel as though it was a plan B, even though I affirmed, biblically, that it had always been plan A. So, Soteriological Integrity will be about developing a theological practice of evangelism that gives the whole Gospel: Creation, Fall, Redemptiion, Restoration.
James– I’m still going to blog through James, but I’m about to start teaching through the book of Galatians In a couple of weeks, and I think that my local church body deserves my full attention on that book at this time. I may post some resources for studying the book of Galatians, along with some background material to go along with the commentary.
Theological Systems– An overview of the four various systems of Biblical Interpretation. Dispensationalism, Covenantalism, Progressive Dispensationalism, and New Covenantalism. I’ll try to be as objective as I can, but am biased more towards New Covenantalism. So there you go.
This should be a good year in the blogosphere. I think there was a boom of christian bloggers this year, of whose number I belong, but many have started weeding themselves out. Some because they feel that it is pointless to blog, others because of time restraints, and others because they think they have nothing to say. In any case, I’m still here, much to the chagrin of many, and still have opinions that I think people should know. And help me make sure that Marc at Purgatorio stays on, He’s got some time issues, it looks like, but I hope he doesn’t just totally stop all at once. I’m begging you, Marc!
