Re-Imagining History

Brian McLaren said something this last week that has done what so many of his words/phrases/writings have done for me... solidified and identified something I have been wondering about for some time.

He said, "It turns out that we might not have been Christian all along; we might have just been successors of the Roman Empire co-opting Christian language." (That is the best I could write down as he was speaking.)

Think about the implications for that. Wow.

Part of me wants to argue that, but deep down somewhere, I have a very depressing suspiscion that it's true.

Hey Ryan,
When/where did he say that? I'd love to read a little more about that (if there is any source) or perhaps you can share more... very intriguing comment.
Grace,
Brian
