With regards to theological posts.

I'm in the middle of writing my first serious business post (it's on why the death of Christ was necessary for salvation), and it occurs to me that I look something like a rabid Christian. And so I realize that I need to make a point very clear.

That point is this: I do not know exactly what I believe. I'm somewhere between agnosticism and an incredibly heretical brand of quasi-Christian Universalism (more on this on another post). The liturgy of the Episcopalian church works for me, so I operate through that. I don't think it's the only right tradition. Often times I wonder if it's the right tradition at all. But I'm not going to make any theological progress if I don't make some basic assumptions. So for most of my posts, just assume that I have posited the existence of God, and please understand that while I may have put on a mask of devout faith so that I can explore Christianity and religion, in reality I am likely far more confused than you.

  1. I find it inspiring that you can adhere to a certain belief system within Christianity while acknowledging the fact that you could be completely incorrect. In my opinion, that makes you more figured out than me.

    Also, thank you for that wonderful shout out. I'm sure any of your readers looking for any of the things on that list can just hop on over to my blog and get their fill. :D
