Brian McLaren last year at the Off the Map conference in Seattle was talking about the generous life and getting past dualism. It was a great talk. At the end during the Q and A someone accused Brian of always swinging the pendulum to far into generosity. If my memory serves me, to paraphrase Brian, he said,
" Generosity is orthodoxy, if you aren't generous you aren't orthodox, because you can't separate a practice of love from the truth about God. I actually don't see them as being separated. I don't actually see orthodoxy and generosity as being polarization. When you go further towards each extreme of left and right you loose generosity on either extreme, and less orthodoxy."
"We've inherited a tradition that says we can get an A in orthodoxy by having the right belief, and F in orthopraxy, but you still pass because orthopraxy is an elective course and orthodoxy is a required course."
