the Atonement and other brain benders

Nobody discovers a new model until they see the problem as serious enough to go through the pain and loss to find one.

Are the church problems associated with being unable to seek the sought simply branding, marketing or packaging problems? Or does the substance have a problem? Is the content the problem? (i.e. the methods change but the message never changes)

Is the Atonement only or primarily an ontological answer for original sin?

Is the Kingdom merely a footnote to the Atonement? or the other way around or are they complete only together?

This is why I love the way Brian Mclaren thinks - - this is how I approach theology, which is probably why I not only confuse others but myself as well. For more brain benders listen to McLaren’s audio series found on the Allelon website.
