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.

God and the single story--why

There are many stories. We can read them in books, watch them in movies, and hear about them in the people we know. There are hundreds of stories, narratives. All found in a myriad of larger stories often called metanarratives. 

But in the end we live one story--our own. All the stories out there narrow down to one place in our humanness. It's like we live at the bottom of a cone, in a single spot amidst the swirl of stories. Or if you prefer at the very top of a mount. In a single spot, at the point. We live from a single story. We live from one perspective.

Knowing this God entered into a story to affect all other stories. He entered in the fray with another named Israel. And their story unfolds in the book we call Bible.
