From God to the Bible

In our religiously pluralistic world, it is crucial for a religious person to have a response to the diversity of religious beliefs.  Natural theology is helpful in arguing for a Creator, but I fear human reasoning alone cannot take that next step in declaring what the nature of this creator is like.  We need revelation […]

A Crisis in Calling

I ponder why I bother to bother you with the contours of Christ’s honor. I conjure claims that sponsor my founder as a fonder conqueror to convert the saunter wanderer. But the sum of my somber wonder wonders if this squanders the hunger of sufferers when I asunder their intellectual plunder. Ideally we deal with […]

Westphal and Onto-Theology Review

Merold Westphal’s book, Overcoming Onto-Theology: Toward a postmodern Christian Faith, is a collection of essays concerning onto-theology.  Westphal’s goal is to show the problems with the onto-theological project and why it should be abandoned.  Westphal has impacted my perspective on human faculties, and has opened me up to appreciate more postmodern thinking.  As successful as […]

Check Me Out

Livin in persuasion of inspiration, fighting invitation from my cravin’. She might be nice wit the spice but aint tastin like wife’s Cajun. They sayin I’m caged in gaging occasions to chasten chasin temptation. Y’all hatin’ my haven that hasten to heaven raisin’ revolt like Haitians. But the patrons of hatred make us patients pay […]

Lyrical Excercise

I pair paronomasia with piety to paralyze paranoia and petrified insomnia. Yeah, a pair of lies lie in disguise to diss guys who try to rhyme for Christ. But we rise to ride or die for those who fight cries at night. Call me corny but I’m going from glory to glory. You just add […]

Esther 6:1-11

1 That night the king could not sleep; so he ordered the book of the chronicles, the record of his reign, to be brought in and read to him. 2 It was found recorded there that Mordecai had exposed Bigthana and Teresh, two of the king’s officers who guarded the doorway, who had conspired to […]

Clear the Religious Air

His approval should move you to prove you choose to lose you to renewal. An unusual removal of walking by your pupils to be his pupil. But we pool into stalling cause it’s appalling to see an apostle’s apology of apostasy, just an apostrophe joining autonomy and autocracy. So your theology probably won’t see the […]

My Christian Inclusivism

As a Christian inclusivist, I maintain that Christianity is the fullest revelation of God, but that people are able to receive salvation without professing to be Christian.  I believe the inclusivist position allows us to maintain traditional understandings of core Christian doctrines, while also acknowledging the force of a religiously plural reality.  We are to […]

I’m Talking to You

Anyone feeling me? Anyone really healing from these? Or do I speak these lame lines from my veins in vain as vanity changes the range of my fame. I invite you to come play in my brain, then complain when you leave the same. Maybe if I mine my mind I’ll find it’s not as […]
