“CAUTION: DECONSTRUCTION AHEAD!” cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward

Want a community in which to deconstruct your beliefs safely? Join The Lasting Supper and meet other great folks going through it together!

In my experience and in my observation, deconstruction should be approached with caution. I wish I knew then what I know now. I would have saved myself, and others, a lot of grief.

It was a very bumpy ride.

I made it through the other side without any permanent damage. But my life permanently changed. For the better.

You can do it. But I don’t recommend doing it alone. I took all the guidance I could get. It was still rough road but I survived and transformed.

Life is good.

Again, I warmly invite you to consider joining The Lasting Supper. This is what we do.

  1. Caryn LeMur says:

    Deconstruction, to me, means (among many things) admitting that we Christians have no direct proof of what Jesus said or did. Rather, we have eye-witness accounts.

    We can eloquently argue over what Paul the Apostle taught (in the Hauptbriefe). We can debate what Paul believed Jesus did or said or implied.

    We can speak to some degree about the writings of the First Century Church, and the corrections to the course the early church-ship was sailing… but it is very hard to know ‘what’ was taught as opposed to ‘what was taught against’.

    So, when I write, “Jesus said ….”, it is just a shorthand for “As stated by the authors of the Book of Matthew, Jesus is credited with saying….”.

    In short, Deconstruction means dealing with the historical reality of what we have from 2,000 years ago…

  2. I would agree Caryn. In large part it does have to do with the authority of scripture. In fact, this was the first Jenga block removed from my tower of belief that was pulled and started everything shaking.
