Ten Years of Blogging: 2004-2005

Yesterday I started going through the last ten years of my blogging. This is all rather self-indulgent, but it has been illuminating and entertaining to look back over my writing from the past ten years and to see how it has developed. The following are some representative posts from my second year of blogging.

September 2004 to August 2005

Probably the high water mark of my theological development under the influence of Biblical Horizons and the Federal Vision. There are also a few positions scattered throughout these posts that I would be rather more cautious about today, or from which I would distance myself.

1. Paradigm Shifts – Trying to explain the most fundamental change that occurred in my earliest period of theological development.

2. Plagiarizing Myself 1 – Why we should celebrate the Lord’s Supper with alcoholic wine.

3. Hebrews 6:1-8 – A suggested reading of this text.

4. Plagiarizing Myself 2 – On Baptism and baptismal regeneration.

5. Protective Hedges – A suggestion on how to understand the ‘boundary markers’ of the works of the Law.

6. Some Thoughts on Transubstantiation: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3

7. Wright on Creation and Covenant – Notes on an N.T. Wright lecture.

8. Worshipping Worship

9. Response to Questions on ‘Top-Down’ Social Change: Part 1, Part 2 (following this piece)

10. Some Thoughts on Interpretative Maximalism

11. James Jordan on Solomonic Literature: Part 1, Part 2

12. Singleness: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3

13. New Covenant – A response to Baptist objections on the subject.

14. Thoughts on Infant Baptism from Stasiak and Searle

15. Men Cleverer Than Women?

    Alastair, as a single dad of a few kids, I appreciated your analysis of singleness; but man, I would prefer to get married and have some spousal support. Do you think I should kill that desire?

    • Not at all. There may be many good reasons to pursue it.

      I should stress that the posts linked above were all written eight or nine years ago. I really would want to revisit them again were I to be asked where I stood on the relevant issues. I suspect that my position on singleness has shifted in some important ways during the intervening period of time.

    Thanks! Hey, would you be willing to send me your email so I can ask you one *brief* question about one thing you posted, which I’d rather not ask in comments? Thanks. If not, I understand.
