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.

alone

Alone is where you are when you have no one to call. Alone is a place you feel when you ask people to be with you in little things--like staying awake when you are sweating blood-- only to find that they didn't even care enough to do that. It was one simple task. You are dying and they are oblivious to your plight. You drink this cup alone--because that is what you are. You are alone. And when the cross gets heavy society will employ a stranger to help you bear it not because he cares or is a friend, but because they need to move you out of the city and this is the most expedient way to get the job done. That's when alone hits. Not only are you alone but you are a burden. A nuisense that has to be dealt with.

Alone is when no one really wants to listen anymore. So you just stop speaking.

Certain people 'know' alone pretty well. Prisoners, widows, orphans, rest homes, unemployment lines and messiahs. 'Just for fun he says, get a job', and the well to do just keep walking on by. They don't want to stop. They are afraid alone will rub off on them. No one likes alone when it really is 'alone'. So the needed, the fortunate ones, stay away form the unwanted, neglected ones. They have lots of people that want to hear from them.

Until their time comes. Alone is where you are when you have no one to call. And those who used to need you, want you, crave you...don't anymore. And day after day alone on the hill...the man with the foolish grin is keeping perfectly still...and nobody seems to notice...

the fool on the hill.
