This post by Stray has been on my mind. This is what he says:
Something felt like it was missing. The something I refer to is at the end of 1 Cor 4: "For the kingdom does not consist of talk but of power". Now, again, I'm not criticising anyone in particular now - I'm just saying that, even amongst emerging church people in general I see a real lack of talk about power and, quite frankly, the supernatural
He has hit the nail on the head and has crystallised some of my thoughts. Many people who are postmodern in outlook would also see themselves as countermodern - in other words they don't like some of the stuff that modernism has done to us and to Christianity. But others have continued down the 'modern road' and become postmodern in another sense. They have embraced the logic and rationalism of modernism almost to the exclusion of any sense of deity and of God's involvement in history. But somehow we are all riding on the same emerging train. Maybe the time is coming for that train to break up.
