Yes, Ted, I am reading this. No, it is not news to me.
There is a remarkable irony in this expression of fear that I am encouraging
people to ride the slippery slope to disbelief in God. The truth is that I
am thinking about God more than ever. In fact, I have alerted several
friends to the fact that if there is ever a few second lull in our social
conversation, I will probably get a distant look on my face and be deep into
thought, working on my portrait of God.
So, to all who are worried about me, or fear me as "an extremely dangerous
person, spiritually," relax. I believe in the reality of God more than ever,
even though my God-portrait (far from finished) may appear different from
the God-portrait distributed in many evangelical Christian churches today.
