More on McLaren

One of my favorite blog buddies, Arnold at Balance and Paradox, delivered his own short critique of Brian McLaren's theology right around the time I published mine in the previous post.

Arnold says of McLaren: "... he has somehow become the Splenda of faux Christianity...his words may taste sweet, but they're not real sugar."

By the way, that stuff can make you really sick. And I hear Splenda's not good for you, either.

If you haven't discovered Arnold's site yet, it's worth checking out. Balance and Paradox offers insightful commentary with a focus on current events and diverse subjects including politics, literature, philosophy and theology. The posts are always thoughtful, sometimes edgy, frequently humorous, and often witty - and they're offered from the perspective of a seasoned Christian who doesn't fall for any postmodern quackery. Best of all, the word "Paradox" is in the blog title, which is always a plus (well, not always - in fact, not even usually - but in this case it is a plus because Arnold knows what a paradox is).


  1. Thanks for the recommendation. I'll be sure to check it out!

  2. Arnold,

    . . . I'm not quite sure how to respond to that one! All I can say is, "I hope you do."

    Blessings brother,
