A Rhetorical Makeover

At times the theology of today needs a rhetorical makeover.  Often what is said is not wrong, but we live in an age where ideas spread quickly and are taken out of context easily.

Often we need to clarify and speak simply our message as Christian to not be misunderstood.  This is a good thing for the Church because the Church is hindered not so much by simple expressions as it is hindered by those who refuse to clarify their thought.

We need to speak clearly with compassion and truth.  God meets us where we are.

He asks us to follow him and leave where we.  Christianity is a joyous religion.

Christian communication needs to communicate that joy.  The gospel is good news.  Preaching and Christian writing should try to communicate the joy and goodness of Christian faith.
