There have been a couple of things I've been thinking about doing, and a couple of things that I already have planned for this blog. I thought I would share a couple of those with you so that you would have a sense of where I am going.
Throughout much of this first year, I've mostly attempted to put forward some posts stating my official stances on things, where such stances exist. There are several issues where I feel like I have failed to do this so far. Included within this are the Trinity and Federalism. Though I have a Trinity post planned right now, the concept of the Trinity is a passion of my that so far I have had little impetus to write on. I would like to correct that in the future. The other issue is my political understand of the USA, which is based on Federalism. Yet, I've not been able to really pin down these thoughts, much to my chagrin.
Another such issue is Arminianism. This is an issue that I have already talked about often, but I haven't really set forth my fall position. I started to, but hit a road block midway. This is, of course, the Why I Am an Arminian series, of which I have only done parts 1 and 2 of 5. So far, part 3 is done, but I don't intend to publish it until I finish the full series. At that point, I republish the first two parts with some redactions.
The last two ideas, I was hoping to ask you guys whether or not it is a good idea. I have two long term projects in mind that are very similar. One is to go through Thomas Oden's systematic theology, and devote a post to each chapter, mostly containing my reflections. The timing of this would be sporadic, and take as long as it would take for me to go through the book, but I mostly want to do it for the sake of reading the work. Do you guys think this makes sense? (If I do decide to do this, it'll be a few months till I start. I want to finish some other books first)
The 2nd idea is to do a very similar thing with the book of Revelation, except treat it as more of a commentary. This wouldn't be for explaining my views as much as forming them. I have a thesis about the book of Revelation, and I want to see it pan out. The series would essentially be a diary of my working out this thesis passage by passage. However, since the attempt is to see whether or not my thesis will pan out, the entire project may be scrubbed midway through if I realize I'm wrong. Do you think it is worth starting?
Thanks for your input.
