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.

Right, wrong, old and new

And, by the way, the ways of old aren’t wrong, just outdated. Like a Smith-Corona, or a Remington, or even an Underwood typewriter. It has a keyboard, it was useful for its time, and useful to build on. But it is different from the computer I am using today. It served an important function as a bridge of sorts, it isn’t wrong, we have just as a matter of reality, outgrown it. Theology like most other disciplines ought to be continuiously altered by new information. Old information may be replaced or may remain intact. Perhaps the keyboard stays as a foundation but what surrounds a the face of the keyboard seems to be in flux. Some foundations need not be dismantled if they have stood the test of time and hold the line still. Others like a house of sand should wash away. Old ideas die hard.

I agree, Daryl. Those things had there place and time. But now we have a kind of fulfillment of them, or the end result, or heading towards the end result or goal.
