When it comes to thinking about #deconstruction in Christianity, Paul Ricoeur rightly argues for the creative and spiritual uses of Freud, Nietzsche, Lessing, et al. They are helpful on many fronts. They help us see what is “not God” and hear God more clearly.
They allow us to use a “small hammer” to tap the idols we are worshipping and hear their hollowness and emptiness. We need deconstruction as we learn to reinterpret the sacred texts and dogmas once again.
In interpreting a text, we will be forced to be disinstantiated from our Sitz im Leben and existentially re-emplotted by the Word, the Sitz im Wort, into the new world of God’s green country.

Hi all. This is a thread about what is commonly referred to as "deconstruction," Joshua Harris' new "course," and the grifters of the post-evangelical internet. Buckle up. #purityculture #churchtoo #deconstruction
I've been holding my tongue and biding my time on the "deconstruction" movement for a while now. Language evolves and we needed a useful term for the process many of us have gone through that involves unlearning, deconverting, and/or reconfiguring the toxic faith we once had.
What I'm about to say is in no way meant to imply that one must have specific credentials or certifications to be an expert in one's own experience, nor is it meant to imply that credentialing orgs are free of white supremacy, queerphobia, classism, and general vileness.

Going to retweet some of the New Yorker article with parts that stuck out to me as it illustrates why I started questioning complementarianism and eventually decided this whole debate is fit only for the trash can.

This will be a thread, and probably a long one. 01/?
"For a time, Barr fell under the sway of an abusive boyfriend, who, while menacing her, spat Scripture demanding her submission. The fact that she couldn’t question him made it harder to see the abuse for what it was."

The first time I ever felt called on to use counseling training was when a young woman I worked with confided in me that her then-boyfriend was mentally, verbally, and socially cruel to her. Neither were saved, but I realized "complementarianism" had no category for this. 03/?

I've seen a lot of pushback from evangelicals about those of us in the #deconstruction / #exvangelical process. They say we're too angry and need to move on or let go.
This is true, we are angry from a multitude to reasons but its important to remember that behind that anger is years of pain, trauma, and even abuse of many kinds.
It's not like we wanted to end up where we have yet, this is where we have landed. Many of us, myself included believe God brought us to where we are. Leading us away from a system that looks nothing like the Jesus the claim to follow.

Let’s talk about the recent misrepresentation of the deconstruction movement as solely a “millennial” issue and how this ageism allows the church to escape criticism. 👉🏼 from an ageism researcher and person who is deconstructing religious beliefs 🙂 #deconstruction #ageism
You might be seeing more talk about deconstruction of belief systems, from Christian church leaders or from ppl who are deconstructing themselves. I’ve seen church leaders recently attribute the mvmt to millennials, centering it as a gen. issue from the ‘social justice warriors’
I cannot speak for everyone who is deconstructing and give it a single definition, but I can tell you what it is NOT. It is not millennials getting angry at the church just because we are the “social justice gen” and we believe everything we see on social media

Cellphone tower set on fire in Saint-Henri

yo .⁦@CBCMontreal⁩ .⁦@CBCAlerts

your story 👇 talks of “False narratives around #5G technology...” so by all means let’s deal with #5Gfacts & not mindlessly conflate with #C19



***no independent scientific studies of #5G safety have ever been conducted — #fact wireless industry reps themselves have admitted.***

this MUST be brought to public attention!!!

(it certainly has been kept quiet so far.... 🤔 yo #cdnmedia! )


2 /

any claims of #5G safety by #BigTelecom are cynical PR distraction ploy from core threats to human health (which #BigWireless, #lobbyists & servile ‘regulator’ .@GovCanHealth — both #PHAC & #HealthCanada — refuse to acknowledge)…
