As I’ve previously written and communicated about, many of my specific theological understandings have shifted over the years. I don’t mean the comparison of my views from today with my views as a third grader when I decided to choose baptism for myself. Those are understandingly not only different in content, but different in scope. What I particularly mean are those views I formed at college or after, and then decided after further study I didn’t see them that way anymore.
If I thought about this as a politician, I appear to be “flip-flopping,” a sure sign I don’t know what I think or can’t be trusted to say what I really mean. In fact many Christians look at this and claim that my faith is somehow broken or incomplete if it contains doubts such as these. Why can’t I just be certain I’m right like they are?
