In honor of Reformation Day on Sunday, let’s make our own theses for the Reformation of today’s church and post them not on a church door but, in accord with our new information technology, here on this blog.
A thesis is ONE SENTENCE, stating a position you would be willing to defend.
I will start, posting some sentences, one per comment, drawing on a couple of my recent rants.
I am aware that some people will have different opinions and that some of the theses might contradict each other. That’s OK.
Let’s discuss them not on this thread, which would mess up the numeric order of our theses, but on the post below, put together just for that purpose.Let’s see if we can come up with at least 95. If we have 613, that’s fine too.
So what do you think needs to be said to help get contemporary Christianity straightened out? Let’s get this Reformation going.
[UPDATE: We are getting away from the one sentence rule. Also, don’t hijack this post for old arguments! I’m moving some of these to the discussion post below. We have some great material here, so let’s keep going in that vein. We passed Martin Luther in quantity of theses by the end of the noon hour! UPDATE: I am deleting comments that aren’t theses and that violate the rules I have set up for this post.]
