Someone made a comment in another blog that Christian bloggers spend too much time arguing about theology and not enough time being pastoral. I have a lot of sympathy for that viewpoint. My only problem is that I don't consider myself to be very good at writing on 'spiritual' or pastoral matters and, if I'm being honest, I'm probably also a bit hesitant about letting everything in my 'spiritual'/emotional life hang out in the public marketplace for all to see.
I've had some sort of 'intuition' all my life that theology isn't what being a Christian is all about. I can only come back to those words 'a personal relationship with God in Christ'. I'm almost hesitant to repeat those words any more because they have been used so often to bad effect that I think they have almost become meaningless.
What makes me sad, in blogword and in discussion groups, is all the bickering over theology that goes on. I wonder whether there is any way to gain a sense of the sacred in blogword? No answers, just a question.
