4. Dr. James McGrath accepts Tony Jones' latest challenge to progressive bloggers and writes about the Incarnation. Excerpt:
Our earliest sources agree strongly about Jesus’ humility. Christians then and now have come to glimpse something important about God “made flesh” or “embodied” in the life of Jesus. And if we don’t realize that that glimpse of God comes across precisely through and in the midst of Jesus’ humility, then we are liable to end up with a very different sense of who Jesus was, and of what God is like. If we think that Jesus really walked around proclaiming himself as the central focus for Christians, then it really won’t matter whether you think you’ve glimpsed God in Jesus because God was active in his life, or because God in some more literal sense became human, or because you think that Jesus’ life embodies something important about Ultimate Reality. You’ll have missed Jesus’ humility, and so whether you think primarily in incarnational terms or not, and if so, whatever you happen to mean by the term, it will be at odds with the character of Jesus and of Jesus’ God in crucial ways.
5. And finally, Rachel Held Evans gives us five things we don't have to leave behind when leaving fundamentalism.
