We must no longer be children, tossed to and fro and blown about by every wind of doctrine, by people’s trickery, by their craftiness in deceitful scheming. Ephesians 4:14, NRSV
I’ve been accused of this very thing by a conservative friend, a self-confessed fundamentalist. Well, I’m certainly not static, as this blog demonstrates (just read my profile). I read my N.T. Wright post and now I’m thinking hmm…..favorite theologian? As I read The Last Word and The Word After That by Brian Mclaren, I’m thinking that I don’t really want to pick and choose favorites, for theologians across the spectrum are helpful, even when I don’t necessarily agree with their conclusions. Some make more sense at the time I read them than others. Yet I shouldn’t simply become a ‘fan’, for we are all full of shortcomings. Intense study does not make one an expert.
