Quote of the Day
"A better term than progressive? I'll vote for one that's gotten a terrible reputation thanks to the Tim LaHayes and the dispensationalists: eschatological. Mouthful? Yes. Trendy? No. Accurate? Absolutely.
To be eschatalogical as a Christian means nothing more than your view of the world assumes that things are not ever in a state of stasis, that things are not standing still in terms of culture or history, but that in some sense, God is drawing things towards an end.
Biblically speaking, this end is that age when all things are revealed, for better or for worse, and God is, as Paul says, "all in all (1 Cor. 15)." It assumes that all our best systems, regardless of tradition and intentions, are finger foods compared to the Great Banquet, and that that which we know and understand is shadowy. It rejects objective, completely obtainable truth in favor of One who is those things, but for the time being is mostly beyond our understanding. It's humbly acknowledging that left or right, conservative or liberal, there is some element of good in their thinking and that that must be drawn out and appreciated for the time being."
