The Christian Watershed seeks to demonstrate that Christianity is intellectually satisfying, but far more than an intellectual exercise. Rather, we attempt to show that everything we learn in the Christian faith must be lived.
This site is full of everything from theological treatises and philosophical musings to poems and devotions. This is not merely an apologetics site that attempts to tell Christians what to think, but instead a site that explores the Christian faith in the modern world.
We do write from a Byzantine Catholic (Joshua) and Antiochian [Eastern/Greek] Orthodox (Joel) perspective, but do our best to be inclusive. Some may call us raging liberals because we speak of caring for our environment or advocate the ethical treatment of animals (even if we intend to eat them). Others might label us dogmatic conservatives because of our belief in the inspiration of Scripture or orthodox doctrine. No matter what labels are ascribed to us, we view ourselves as Christians attempting to perfect our faith in all aspects, whether it be in how we live or in how we think.
*The term “Christian Watershed” comes from Francis Schaeffer’s book, The Great Evangelical Disaster, where he argues that, in order for one to truly be called a Christian, there is a “watershed” (a certain level of belief) one must meet. One of our goals is to demonstrate where this “watershed” mark is through philosophy and theology.
