I really appreciated John Crowder’s very timely video, “God is hell.” Hat tip to Mel for bringing it to my attention. Eastern orthodoxy to the rescue once again!
So one of the things I’ve been studying is communication gaps and divisions within the church. We have these gaps between generations, we have these fractures and divisions, and most of it is related to heart matters, to relationship dysfunction. One thing I really observe, older generations tend to just follow culture and tradition without question, whereas younger people need to know the why’s and wherefores.
There’s a real hunger for doctrine out in the world, for revelation, for theological discussion, kind of like what Crowder is doing. Opening the lines of communication, creating discussion, all so, so important.
