tearing down vs. building up

I had a little to much time on to waste on the internet last week, so I spent a lot of time reading about the emergent/emerging church movement and I came across a lot of blogs, that heatedly debated whether emergent is the newest shizzle in Christianity or serious heresy. Among all these heated debates I found an article that’s really worth reading, it actually has nothing to with emergent per se but is about how we Christians should be talking about our theological assumptions. We often take the easy way and bash whatever theology we don’t like instead of engaging in a conversation to build each other up.

    Thanks for the encouragement. I’d say encouraging people should be the new “emergent”, what do you think?

    Emergent or not, I actually couldn’t care less :P. But Love & Encouragement should most def be the Christian street rep, not nitpicking fundamentalism, liberalism, arminianism, calvinism, neo-paganism, rob-bell-ism, mark-driscoll-ism, whateverism (just keep the damn -isms in low case)…
