Heute verlasse ich die Reihenfolge der Kapitel des Buches »Insurrection« von Peter Rollins und springe zum letzten Kapitel, um einen Abschnitt herauszugreifen, in dem Peter über etwas schreibt was für mich an emergenter Theologie so interessant ist:
»Our ideas of what a fulfilled life would look like, how a just society would operate, or how an authentic faith could be expressed are all too often uncritically reflective of the dominant underlying political and theological ideas that we imbibed as infants. The truly revolutionary move, then, does not lie in attempting to fulfill our dreams but in putting ourselves into a situation in which we are able to dream new ones.
This is pyro-theology, insomuch as it sees the unchanging truth of faith nestled not in any positive claims to reality but in the ongoing testing and transformation of those claims through the fires of passionate, loving debate. The truth of faith is not then to be found in some new movement but in the antagonism that generates birth of new movements. The truth is not found in the conservative, liberal, evangelical, fundamentalist, or orthodox traditions but in the spaces between these traditions and in the gaps that exist within them—gaps which open them up to ever new and apocalyptic possibilities.
