Brian McLaren continues to write books and speak on his ideas about post modern theology and ideology. A recent Christianity Today article by Scot McKnight shares positively about McLaren, but then asks some questions in three areas.
CLARITY, THE CROSS, THE KINGDOM AND THE CHURCH.
McKnight ask what is the problem with having some answers. What is the problem with clarity?
McKnight takes issue with McLaren's reducing the act and message of the cross to a protest against violence.
McKnight questions why McLaren emphasizes the kingdom of God without ever talking about the church as the agent God uses to initiate the kingdom.
I found the article quite fair and reasonable. These are questions that demand answers. McLaren cannot simply rewrite the message of the cross and expect that everyone is just supposed to fall in line or have no questions. I pray that McLaren would answer these "questions from a friend" and return to a sound doctrine and the whole message of the gospel.
Have you read McKnight's article?
Do you think that the questions that he is asking need to be answered or are they unimportant?
How should the church of today respond to McLaren and his writings and teaching?
