A friend shared a diagram from a blog called “Theologygrams” which has a lot of great stuff on it. Here’s the one that was shared with me: Also don’t miss the theology topic generator. [Read more...]

Adam: Assumed or Accentuated?

The attempt at an alliterative title hopefully will not obscure what this post is about, which is an attempt to clarify my thinking about Adam in Paul’s letters. This is a follow-up to my earlier post, in which I explained some of the reasons for concluding that Jesus and Paul were not literalists, which in turn emerged [Read More...]

Hasn’t God Said?

Someone shared this status update on Facebook: The devil is using the same trick that he used in the garden by getting people to second guess what God has already told them. Has not God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? Has not God said that marriage is between a [Read More...]

From the Dust

I had the movie From the Dust drawn to my attention yesterday. It focuses on the creation-evolution controversy, but with attention primarily focused on how the various viewpoints of our time are reading and interpreting the Bible.

Don’t Let the Fact That Paul’s Letters are Now Christian Scripture Undermine Their Message and Authority!

Paul, in his time, made a case for relaxing Scriptural stipulations about the need for anyone within Abraham's household to be circumcised in order to be part of the covenant (Genesis 17:9-14).
