WATERSHED: A voice in the wilderness. DARYL UNDERWOOD.

 

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.

obsession

Sometimes I worry about my obsession with Christ given the number of psychotics I have encountered with the same obsession. Balance seems to be the ability to believe nothing too much. Normal people are those most related to flat line emotions.

 

Golgotha

he can see the sun going down,

on its final curtain call,

and he can see the world spinning round,

day after day since the beginning,

because he was there to put it on its axis--

 

and he never gives an answer for himself

when inquistitors demand

and when this man of a thousand voices dies

He dies alone

the fool on the hill

 

and alive in the garden of a thousand sighs

once more

he lives higher than this hill of death

and he sees the world spinning round

and round and round

 

The Fool on the Hill

Day after day
alone on a hill
the man with the foolish grin
is keeping perfectly still
but nobody wants to know him
they can see that he's just a fool
and he never gives an answer

But the fool on the hill
sees the sun going down
and the eyes in his head
see the world spinning round

Well on the way
head in a cloud
the man of a thousand voices
talking perfectly loud

But nobody ever hears him
or the sounds he appears to make
and he never seems to notice

But the fool on the hill
sees the sun going down
and the eyes in his head
see the world spinning round

And nobody seems to like him
they can tell what he wants to do
and he never shows his feelings

But the fool on the hill
sees the sun going down
and the eyes in his head
see the world spinning round

He never listens to them
he knows that they're the fools
they don't like him

The fool on the hill
sees the sun going down
and the eyes in his head
see the world spinning round

 If you are a bit insane does it ever really occur to you or do you just drift into your own world.
