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.

Concept Behind "Miles To Go"--the book

Almost all disciplines are being re imagined as we move through our lifetime in this rapidly changing world. This book describes a way to envision Christianity from the centerpoint outward. A view that begins with the cross and moves outward from that point. The premise is that the cross is the climax to the story of God's struggle to deal with evil, eliminate personal demons, fulfill His promises and responsibilities with Israel, and begin a recreation based on this resolution of convergent issues. The cross is the climax of what has gone before and the commencement of a new era for God.

Buckminster Fuller once said, "You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change things build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete."

Fuller may have lived a long time back but his prophetic vision is never clearer than it is today. It is time for a new Christianity to emerge--one that has honored past models but not been weighed down by them. Centerpoint Christianity is one such model poised to make an entrance in a time when it is most yearned for.

It's greatest enemy as always will be the religious relic of resistance.
