I half expected the writer to say something like 'but as long as we stand firm in Gods love...' or similar. But I was surprised the quite non-denomenational feel, until the last line:

The writer describes himself as "a postevangelical reformation Christian in search of a Jesus-shaped spirituality."

Mmmm,is that the latest trendy viewpoint for salvation today? I often wonder why xians dont see the inherent stupidity of denominations, as if God wasnt speaking clearly enough for their to be no doubt.

The simple fact is that all religion will become increasingly marginalised as our understanding precludes God as an explanation for things. This obviously feeds in to the exact issues being raised - of course christian education will fail, it has nothing to add. Its not surprising that someone would be ridiculed for suggesting Lamarckian evolution, why would it be any different if someone advocates a theology that is at odds with what we know about the world today?

Humanity needs to grow up and face the real problems, like how we grow from a petty bunch of over consuming self centered idiots in to a species that can live in relative harmony with itself and the planet. Christianity is certainly not going to help with that challenge!
