Wow. A plethora of really good thoughts, Adam. Good observations about Jeff too. Nice guy. Terrible theology.
It seems you are well on your way in your journey. I applaud anyone who steps back from the mainstream Church for a harder look at the Church's false witness.
FWIW, I still wish I was writing for the Backyard Church, but you have to be hard-core political liberal to write for Dan and since I'm Libertarian, I had to leave.
I still love reading your articles though. Nice work.
