I confess: I watched Kent Hovind videos as a child and argued with my fourth grade science teacher about the age of the earth.
I confess: In junior high and high school I thought denominations that baptized children were heretical.
I confess: In high school I attended a Bible study on Revelation that took a premillenial, pre-trib, dispensationalist view.
I confess: Oftentimes I want to quit my job as a youth minister and pursue an academic career in theology.
I confess: My conviction that all good theology must be able to be lived out within the worshiping life of our congregations (as well as my love for teenagers) keeps me from doing the above.
I confess: I think the western church is in desperate need of an ecclesiological overhaul. Because of this, most youth ministry practice is beyond help.
I confess: I am enamored with Kevin Vanhoozer.
I confess: I haven’t read nearly enough Vanhoozer and I don’t understand him as well as I would like.
I confess: I have a horrible struggle with theological and intellectual pride.
I confess: I long for the day when people will be impressed with my bookshelves (see above).
I confess: I enjoy worshiping in a liturgical Lutheran congregation.
I confess: I dislike the hierarchy of the ELCA along with its stance towards ordination.
I confess: I am an emerging church aficionado.
I confess: I read theology much more than my Bible.
There’s lots more. Maybe I’ll add some later.
