I have been struggling with classic depictions of God for the past several months. But I found great comfort in Tony Jones’s recent admission in regards to agnosticism or igtheism.
I’d be keen to hear what some of you agnostic and atheistic readers think of his essay. (For the record, I’m currently somewhere on the Christian agnosticism/igtheism spectrum.)
I am curious if there are others out there in Emergent Village that find similar tendencies in the midst of emergence.
Perhaps emergence takes us down a road of uncertainty and unknowing that is atypical of Christianity at large. Perhaps this is the freedom we have in relating to and living with a God that offers freedom. Perhaps emergence is not as concerned with the character of God and God’s interactivity in our individual lives.
Any thoughts? Does emergence lead you into a similar direction of agnosticism or igtheism?
