Incarnationalism vs. Scripturalism

In some ways, I am glad for this kind of flap happening.

Arturo at Reditus has written about Christianity’s Pagan & Judeo-Christian roots, going so far as to say that Christianity should be understood, in some sense, as Judeo-Paganism (Arturo, correct me if I’m wrong.)

Clearly the GAFCON/Global South side of this is not about sex. It’s about Protestantism and Catholicity, as the Fogey has said. But I’m not sure it’s that simple, because here the Bishop of Pittsburgh and the GAFCON folks seem to be scripturalists before incarnationalists.

One of the cornerstones of my faith journey is a radical, transformational, and —yes— liberating sense of the Incarnation that allows God to be understood in ways heretofore unheard of or unthought of.

This may be theological thin ice, but I don’t think so.
