Christianity Needs More Heretics

Posted on by Jeremy Daggett

Tripp Fuller, making a plea for more prophet-like “heretics”:

A Christian can’t relegate faith making it a particular means to cultivate a kinder, gentler, and slightly improved version of the world we are handed. If we are honest about our global situation we know we can’t. In letting a therapeutic faith die it is my hope that the church stop pleading the 5th or silently affirming our world as it is and find its prophetic voice again. We must insist that humanity can dream and create a more just and equitable way of relating as peoples and to our planet. We can do better.

He calls the first group “therapeutic Christians”, the second group “Christian heretics”. If Christianity is to survive another 100 years, it needs more heretics.
