I was visiting our local community's message forums, and had not been in the religion section in quite a while. Someone posted an article from a pagan website, on how all religions are right, just different. The metaphor used was that religion is just like looking out of a window and describing what you see. Each of us that looks out the window will see different things.
As I began to write a friendly reply, I started to question many of the thoughts coming to my mind. So much of apologetics is personally engrained into me. And now I can really see what McLaren was referring to in a new kind of christian about how the old methods and tools we have are outdated. My first response was to explain how far superior the christian view describing what existed outside of the window was. But then I realized how this would sound to non christians. I then thought of explaining how every religion has wrong descriptions about what exists outside the window, but then again, don't we?
Have you experienced any new ways of rethinking apologetics?
