‘Today is a time for us to reclaim our Berean heritage and learn how to question in ways that are closely aligned with the way Scripture would have us act and think. ‘
Chris “Doc” Leland

Syncretisim,
Nomism,

Words full of meaning.

In essence. Ways to describe how as Christians we make faith into something way more complicated than it should be by adding a list of rules that Christians have to do to become more christian (nomistic) or by simply not looking at the scripture well enough and letting a whole lot of other trash seep in (syncretisim).

I have been thinking how much Paul fought tooth and nail against these things in the early church and how to a certain extent due to the fact that we don’t question stuff we have made what should be a beautiful faith into something that is complicated, pathetic, weak or even worse a consumeristic identity.
