Nnnnh… Why you gotta do me this way?
“Christianity centres around orthodoxy, whereas Celtic practice emphasises the importance of doing things, rather than just believing in things (and therefore orthopraxy).”
I won’t quibble with every single one of those characterizations, and the overall point is fine, but, Libris. I know this is annoying to reckon with, but “one way that people do Christianity” does not account for all Christianities. And the importance of “doing things” is pretty… canon.
I guess we could debate whether the “majority” (?) practice counts as the Platonic essence of what Christianity “is” vs. the relevance of basis texts and all other approaches, but I’m guessing the former would make it a lot harder to generalize about what Celtic practice is, too. Or maybe it wouldn’t, I don’t know.
But do me a favor, eh?
