My entrance into the Christian tradition came by way of Neo-Pentecostalism. My Senior Pastor at the time was a very ecclectic thinker and appreciate of the Christian tradition in its plurality. For a season we went headlong and deep into Reformed theology. As a matter of fact it would be the presuppositionalism of Cornelius VanTil and Greg Bahnsen that would lead me to have a profound appreciation for postmodernism and postmodernity. Ironically, it would be the work of Christian Reconstructionist and Kuyperian theology that would bring me to the world of black liberation theology. Strange indeed. This week I have promised friends that I would start back blogging regularly again. And the recent bloggings of brothers over at Reformed Blacks of America has me re-thinking my relationship to the Reformed tradition. Especially the recent criticism coming out of Reformed (psuedo-Evangelical) circles regarding Emergent and the broader emerging church movement that I affiliate with. This week will be a thinking out loud about the Reformed faith.
