Progressive Christianity :: Moving Forward

Interesting discusion on 'Jesus Creed' on progressive Christianity.

Progressive Christians believe that sacred truth is not frozen in the ancient past. While respecting the wisdom of the past, progressive Christians are open to the ways truth is moving forward in the present and future for the betterment of the world. Progressive Christianity recognizes that our sacred texts and authoritative traditions must be critically engaged and continually reinterpreted in light of contemporary circumstances to prevent religion from becoming a relic....

I've become increasingly interested in 'progressive Christianity' after reading Marcus Borg. It just makes more sence. I think it can also be shown that God and Christianity have evolved. From the oldest scriptures to the gospels and epistles. Human understanding of God and his nature has evolved. Does this stop? I don't think so.
