Theological movements are often about filling a hole not replacing the whole.

Chris Anderson, the head honcho of the TED talks, discusses how web video accelerates innovation (h/t Seth Godin). While the whole video is interesting as he talks about how web videos inspire innovation and advancement, check out about 9:30 into the video (you can click the timeline to fast-forward to it) Here’s the segment: 9:30 […]
Last week my spouse became a stereotype: driving a Prius with reusable shopping bags filled with arugula in the trunk…and listening to NPR. Sigh. But the story she heard fit right into discussions here at HX about the echo-chamber. NPR reported on the advent of religious search engines: specially-coded search engines that only return results […]
My blog has moved services (from Blogger to WordPress) and thus the last 10 posts probably migrated with them. I apologize for flooding your feeds, but luckily skipping them all is pretty easy. There’s probably some cat videos that are more deserving of your time. And welcome to the new website!

Here we are! This is the third version of HackingChristianity and it’s a big change. We have moved from a free Blogger account to a self-hosted WordPress solution.

When Jesus is asked what is the greatest commandment, Jesus replies with the Shema (Deut 6:4-9) and a […]
Sigh. I know it is satire and humor, but I get pretty annoyed by the tired “Progressive” is a code word for “morally lax and permissive church” meme. For instance, this episode is up for an Emmy (What? They have regional Emmys? Really?) from the Steve and Kathy Gray show (background here) Here’s the basic […]
This is a book review as part of being an Ooze select blogger. As always, while reviews can be bought, the content is my own honest opinion! Usually I put together a long review for subjects that I’m passionate about: peace and justice are often those topics. However, the Economy of Love video curriculum is […]
I had a follow-up thought on the Mario Bros Discipleship post on meeting people where they are in biblical difficulty. The evidence for the bible having adaptive multi-faceted learning is evidenced by when an entire church is lectionary-based in its curriculum or studies the same scripture on Sundays. When the children, the youth, the adults, […]
