The concept of Centerpoint Christianity briefly stated is:

Christianity from the centerpoint outward.

Christianity from the climax forward.

This blog constitutes concepts for a new view of Christianity that begins with what is foundational and moves forward from that point. It is based on the assumption that we are being pulled towards something unseen and pushed from a place that once was.

What Centerpoint Christianity attempts to do is bypass some of the constraints imposed by metanarratives by using the life of Christ and particularly the climactic actions of Christ as beginning points.

It supports the conviction that God is essentially timeless. From this beginning point we endeavor to move outward from the definitive moment of the parousia (visitation) of Christ and forward to the future which functions as a type of magnet to "what can be--and is coming".

When we begin at the life of Christ and move outward as from the centerpoint of a web, rather than in a linear timeline of history, another wide picture emerges.

garden

'...never send to know for whom the bells tolls; it tolls for thee.'--John Donne Devotions upon Emergent Occasions

It begins in a garden. It finds its climax where it begins. This is the setting for the final scene before the battle. It is here where God and Jesus meet, Father and Son hug, and Man and Woman kiss one last time. The last embrace before one goes off to war lingers as long as it can. And here all things die because the sun has set and darkness rules the night. Once bright and full of life the garden of life is now doused in sweat and blood.

When a soldier goes to war does he go alone? For whom is war hardest? Is it the One who goes to flight or the One who is left behind to wait?
