James K. A. Smith and the Pentecostal World View November 30, 2015 1 Comment

Is there such a thing as a ‘Pentecostal philosophy’?  James K. A. Smith says there is.  They don’t necessarily talk about it in ways we are accustomed to, but he says they have one.  And here are its major elements according to Smith: 1.  A position of radical openness to God, and in particular, God […]

“Shared Intentionality” and its Implications February 2, 2015 No Comments

The ‘developmental and comparative psychologist’ Michael Tomasello, an American who now works at the Max Planck Institute in Leipzig, Germany, has come up with a concept called “shared intentionality” as a mark that separates humans from chimpanzees and bonobos [asserted in many circles to be our closest blood relatives].  Where I first read of this, in […]

The Place of Sharia Law in a Free Society January 3, 2011 No Comments

There has been some controversy recently, because the Archbishop of Canterbury, no less, suggested that sharia law could in some ways be incorporated into the British law code.  This suggestion created a certain amount of outrage; and in the last election the state of Oklahoma, not a state with a large number of Muslims, passed […]

The H-word, and the Other H-word December 6, 2010 2 Comments

In the ‘60s we had a lot of slang phrases using the word “head” – “head trip” “got a crazy idea in his head” “feed your head” (Jefferson Airplane) “we’d like to change your head” (The Beatles) “out of my head” “big head” “hard headed woman” (Yusuf Islam) In other words, the significance of the […]

Jesus’ Theology of Earthquakes April 19, 2010 1 Comment

It has been more than a week since the Easter Sunday Mexicali earthquake, but better late than never. Many of us have thought, or, frankly, even hoped, that natural calamities would mainly fall on sinners.  A famous verse came out of the San Francisco earthquake:

A Theology of Earthquakes and Culture February 12, 2010 5 Comments

After the Haiti earthquake, Pat Robertson declared that the earthquake was punishment for Haiti’s voodoo culture.  How does he know?  And is it any of his business?  Pronouncements of this sort, I believe, fall into the category of “taking the name of the Lord in vain,” a commandment often misunderstood to be about what you […]

Creeping Lutheranism? December 14, 2009 1 Comment

I have no interest in making my non-believing readers feel uncomfortable, but I did reserve a Theology category in this blog. And you may not understand everything I write about theology, but I hope you find it entertaining. My wife, in her career at the Register, was able to make religion stories interesting, entertaining, and […]

The Heart vs. The Gut November 18, 2009 3 Comments

One of the common errors in modern Western thinking is to confuse the “heart” with the “gut,” the home of the emotions and moods. My emotions and moods change over time. The attitudes that trigger my moods and feelings are much more stable and change, if anything, very slowly. The Bible speaks constantly of the […]
