Hindu God, Christian God

In a world with a diversity of opinions and beliefs, it’s necessary for Christians to find a way to have genuine dialogue with religious persons of other faiths.  In Hindu God, Christian God, Clooney gives us some ground to stand on to begin conversing with those in the Hindu faith.  He also aims to show […]

Love that Demands Change

When I think about the prompt, “change and changes”, I immediately think about the current condition of our world and all the ills that need to be cured.  As I ponder the multitude of tragedies, misfortunes, stubbornness, heartbreaks, injustices, oppression, hatred, abuse, exploitation, inhumane acts, discrimination, and the list goes on; I can’t help but […]

Of Two Minds on Dualism

The mind-body problem has been a topic of debate from the inception of philosophy itself, and has recently became a hot topic in Christian circles.  Throughout the course of history, neither monists nor dualists have been able to conclusively demonstrate the falsity of its opponent and the veridical nature of itself.  This has not stopped […]

Ancient Demonology and Modern Pneumatology

As we look at the current state of pneumatology, there is very little discussion on other aspects of the spiritual realm.  In some pneumatologies, it seems that there is no other spiritual realty besides God and human spirits.  The current neglect of demons in academic studies of Holy Spirit can leave us unprepared on how […]

Pneumatological Orthopraxy

As I see it, orthopraxy is the culmination of the development of our relationship with Holy Spirit.  We start with orthodoxy, which informs our orthopathy, which then motivates our orthopraxy.  This development need not always be linear, but is often times, and is a helpful way to conceptualize our relationship with Holy Spirit.  Orthopraxy, as […]
