Biblical Studies Carnival 69 at Remnant of Giants

As a Doctor Who fan, I was tempted to call this “Carnival of Giants” as a mash-up of two episode titles, “Carnival of Monsters” and “Planet of the Giants.” But even though I didn’t, there is still a giant carnival over at Deane Galbraith’s blog Remnant of Giants. There are some posts from here and [Read More...]

This is Not the Child You are Looking For

Another Star Wars Christmas mash-up that I made. Feel free to use it for Christmas cards, if you are so inclined! [Read more...]

How Young-Earth Creationism Works

I found this image at a site I discovered today, the satirical site The Creation News. It illustrates the method some commenters (and one in particular) have used in advocating young-earth creationism in recent discussions on this blog so precisely, that I thought I should share it. The illustration with cute bunnies still makes the [Read More...]

The Life of Christ in Cats

Why am I posting this rather unusual image of the Life of Christ in Cats? Other than the fact that it will irritate Jim West, I’m not really sure. But isn’t that reason enough? From Feministe via Why Evolution is True [Read more...]

Doctor Who: The Romans

The episode of Doctor Who “The Romans” from the William Hartnell era only intersects tangentially with religion, but it does so in interesting ways. The Doctor and his companions end up in Rome in the time of Nero, and the Doctor actually gets mistaken for a lyre player who has been invited to Nero’s palace. [Read More...]

The Key Difference Between Paul and America’s Pseudo-Christians

Another verse that I highlighted in Romans 9 in my Sunday school class this past week is Paul’s statement in 9:3: For I could wish that I myself were accursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my brothers, my kinsmen according to the flesh. There seems to me to be a huge, stark difference between what [Read More...]

Scotty in Hell

I am sure I must have seen this before at some point, but having come across it I felt it was worth sharing. It certainly fits one of the themes of this blog – the intersection of religion and science fiction! [Read more...]

Dinosaurs in the Book of Job?

A question came up on Facebook about the genre of the Book of Job in the Bible. It is mostly poetry. You can tell in most English Bibles by the formatting on the page. The two line units, with the second line indented, and “thought rhymes” (matching or contrasting ideas) in both of the two, [Read More...]

God’s Ironic Hatred in Romans 9?

This past Sunday in my Sunday school class, we reached Romans 9. I was struck recently for the first time by the possibility that Paul’s use of texts in this section might be profoundly and perhaps intentionally ironic. The idea that God hardened Pharaoh’s heart, and that God hated Esau, have something in common – [Read More...]
