Contemporary Theological Issues


After leaving seminary I was surprised to learn that not all people within the church have the same theological issues. I was under the impression that there were a few theological issues that were universal in scope. However, this turned out not be true. The theological concerns individuals have where I currently live (Omaha) are different than they are where I used to live (Chicago). The issues we discussed there were different from the issues we thought were important where I was in college (Grand Rapids).

Moreover, to have a series title “contemporary theological issues” is a little subjective. Certainly, there are still a few universal theological concerns within the church, but outside of those, many are relative to one’s location, education background, and church experience.

The issues I will be focusing on will begin with those that I encounter regularly. I become quite weary repeating myself on various topics and this will provide a foundation to refer people to.

These are the articles currently on the agenda (in no particular order):

  • The role of women in church, society and home
  • Paul was not a Calvinist: a new perspective on the issue of sovereignty
  • Biblical inerrancy and truth: the devil IS in the details
  • Am I saved? Evangelicalism’s eternal security question
  • What is the gospel message?
