Living, Breathing, and Being Theology
Some hear the words "living theology" and immediately think of the emergent church. I've often expressed that I have sympathies with the emergent concept of community and togetherness for the Christian body, but would sharply oppose the separation that has occurred from biblical orthodoxy. That stated not as a disclaimer, but as a statement of purpose, that I wholly agree that our lives of transformation are to be not only necessitated and lived out in the context of the local church, but in our social constructs as well. After all, how will one know the love of Christ that is supposedly manifest in the believer if they do not experience that love through the life of one of His followers and their proclamation of His Gospel?
