The need for the evolution of Christian thought.

I believe that Christianity has stagnated since the reformation. We were meant to stand on the shoulders of the masters who have gone before, Paul, Augustinius, etc. Men and woman who pushed the boundaries of our faith.
We were meant to become masters ourselves, giants pushing the boundaries so that our faith becomes, bigger, more inclusive, ever more expressive of Him who is beyond expression.
At the root of the problem is the idolatry of scripture. Instead of being our foundation, our starting point, it has become our destination. Meant to simply be a pointer to God, we have made it into God.
No wonder we cannot address the needs of modern day society, we have limited God to language and concepts two thousand years old.
