Conceptual Truth & Christ-like Orthopraxy

Post Modern Christianity may signify a reformulation of modern Christianity’s identification with Orthodoxy (right beliefs)  to Christ-like orthopraxy (right-practice & relationship with God). Christ-Like Mindfulness seeks to transcend modern Western Christianity's reliance on and identification with right beliefs. Beliefs and knowledge are important, but beliefs and all knowledge are just human mental behaviors or tools, and like all tools, beliefs and knowledge have one Christian purpose: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the most important commandment (commandments are conceptual tools that guide our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors).  The second most important commandment (another conceptual tool) is like it: Love your neighbor as you love yourself.  The whole Law of Moses and the teachings of the prophets depend on these two commandments (God's word and the commandments are sacred tools or conceptual standards that are to help us love God, self and others) Matthew 22: 37-40.

Any orthodoxy that does not produce Christ-like orthopraxy, may be nothing but conceptual idolatry. 

We endorse and accept the conceptual-behavioral practice of a generous othrodoxy, which allows for a diversity of beliefs regarding all theological concepts (e.g., see Brian D McLaren, A Generous Orthodoxy).  As post modern followers of Christ, we value concepts and knowledge about God based on how the knowledge effects peoples lives emotionally, behaviorally, and spiritually in Christ.   Post modern followers of Christ believe that absolute truth exists (e.g. God is, and God is Good). The universe is full of absolutes, but "we only know in part" and all of our knowledge is thus valued by its effectiveness as inspired sacred conceptual tools that produce  the Fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5: 22-24; 2Timothy 3:16-17).

We tolerate and lovingly embrace differing opinions in the body of Christ, and share a warm and loving fellowship in practicing the Way, Truth, and Life of Christ Jesus. We can believe differently  (Generous Othrodoxy--Romans 14), but be, love and live Like Christ together.
