I worked through some stuff this weekend regarding my stance on postmodernism and modernism and the weird tension between the two. usually I am labeled and lumped with the postmodern group, because I have a questioning mind and am willing to try new stuff. but that's gotten kinda annoying. And i'm not sure that I want to be labeled anything, except one thing. A Christ follower.
So I'm saying goodbye to gray, the ambiguity that is embraced by postmoderns. Hello to the clarity of the gospel: love for all.
Goodbye to black and white, the idea that there is a clear cut answer for anything (embraced by moderns). Hello to the ambiguity of grace: God's love for all.
And in the same breath, I welcome "grayness" and "black and whiteness", but only as they help me understand who Jesus is and help me convey his love to others.
