Key Connections: Progressive Christianity, Lamentation, and more…

January 10, 2019

Here are my favorite quotes from key Christian articles around the web, including the 10 commandments of progressive Christianity, freedom in Christ, and a look into the best systematic theologies.

The 10 Commandments of Progressive Christianity (Michael J Kruger, canon fodder)

I have also been struck by how each of the commandments of progressive Christianity is partially true. Indeed, that is what makes them so effective.  They sound quite reasonable on the surface. It’s not until you dig down deep that you notice the problems.

From Desperation to Lamentation (Alexiana Fry, GCD)

As we seek to imitate Christ and follow those who have gone before us, we get the grace of employing every part of the Bible as our guide. This includes the psalms of lament. These laments provide words for what we most often do not have words for personally or communally.

Freedom in Christ (Burk Parsons, Ligonier Ministries)

Our abundant life of freedom in Christ is not a freedom to do anything we want to do but to have the uninterrupted, Spirit-sustaining power to do what we know we ought to do as the Holy Spirit changes our wants and daily makes all of our God-given duties delightful as we rest in the finished work of Christ (Rom. 8:3–4).

Systematic Theology Review (Kevin DeYoung, DeYoung, Restless, Reformed)

The good news is there are plenty of good resources that have served the church well and will strengthen your understanding of the faith. With only 5 to 10 minutes a day, you could read through an entire systematic theology in the course of a year.

What It Looks Like to Take God at His Word (Colin Smith, Unlocking the Bible)

God will provide what you need when you need it; not an overflowing jar and an overflowing jug. You can take him at his word, and you can trust him as you walk with him in faith and obedience.
