as far as i can tell this was originally laid out in a point/counterpoint way with this article but i thought i'd lead with this one because i enjoy looking at different opinions and i thought one written by an "evangelical theology professor" would be outside the norm for hubski

i think the christian anarchist viewpoint of orthopraxis over orthodoxy is a really powerful counterattack against mainstream christianity as a political/moral force, but like, it falls prey to slipping back into unhelpful rigidity

i think it would be better to interact with this article in a way that's more like having a conversation and considering why he's saying what he says, versus trying to debate and pick it apart - it's not like he's ever going to read criticisms anyway

EDIT: i've been frustrated/annoyed enough to delete my account before, and felt like i was being pushed out of different communities, so i understand why you might have left. i'm sorry to see you go and unhappy that i was the reason for it. i hope you'll be back.
