Author and theologian Scot McKnight speaks into some of his process in dealing with Reformed theology in his article over at BeliefNet. I not only appreciate his perspective; I share it in this case.
Many of my dearest friends and fellow creative servants live in the Reformed world, and I lead worship with them, create with them, embrace God with them and even teach them.
I however, cannot live in that world for very long without some level of oxygen leaving the room for me. I adore the central themes related to God’s sovereignty, but find pain in some of the approach to people who see the world differently than from a strictly reformed perspective.
Here is a piece of Scot’s article, based on John Piper’s invitation of Rick Warren to teach at his conference, and the full article is here.
