Trailblazer or Heretic
Every generation, theological innovators appear on the scene.
Some are martyred and then celebrated two centuries later.

We are currently in a spiritual season that invites massive exploration of new concepts. Never has the Body of Christ been so wealthy with spiritual insight, strategies and organizational constructs.

How do you measure the new ideas that flood the religious marketplace these days?
The Keepers of the Ancient Way will continue to wage (un)holy war against the innovators.
And the people whose Christianity does not work for them, will continue to feed the egos and pocketbooks of those who claim to have found a new and better way.
