Why'd ya have to go and make things so complicated?

There's a message board I visit once in a while to see what the Emergent Church is up to. No good, it seems to me. The bickering and arguing about Calvinism vs Armenianism, why do we have to use Him/Her when we refer to God--God is a MAN!; When Peter walked on the water, what spiritual lesson was he supposed to learn according to which theology and which one is RIGHT?

People, people, PEOPLE!

"This is my Father's purpose--that everyone who looks to the Son and believes him will have eternal life." John 6:40

"Let me emphasize this: the person who believes has eternal life." John 6:47

" Didn't I tell you that if you believed, you would see God's splendor?" John 11:40

Amy more questions?

yes, why do you keep going back to that board! :)

i have some great emergent blogs i read, but rarely even read comments because it sucks me into the politics so quickly.

i always think if there is more heat than light something is really, really broken.

Some people find believing to be an offense to grace.. I think that it is a simply glorious response to it.
