Horse Gods – C.S. Lewis, Xenophanes and John Piper’s blaspheme

I spent this past week explaining that saying God has given Christianity a masculine feel is like saying 'God has given America a Capitalist feel'. It was the point of my post "Bananas, Bullies and the Bible - you can't start in the middle."  I never struggle to believe in God. I believe in the … Read more about Horse Gods – C.S.

Bananas, Bullies and the Bible – you can’t start in the middle

by Bo Sanders Let me say upfront what I’m going to end with and then build from there: You can’t verbalize the way things are - which is a result of the way things have been - as proof that this is how it should always be.  Creation ‘expert’ Ray Comfort famously made a fool of himself by … Read more about Bananas, Bullies and the Bible – you can’t start in the middle

There is no Evangelical Orthodoxy

What God doesn’t say and how not to read the Bible

Both Paul and homosexuality are hot topics right … Read more about What God doesn’t say and how not to read the Bible

21st Century Theology: four locations for the endeavor

I come from a Methodist tradition that looks to John Wesley as its founder. Wesley utilized a famous quadrilateral to talk about how we do theology. The four elements were Scripture, Tradition, Reason, and Experience. I love the quad!

My Love (hate) Relationship with Tim Tebow

I love Tim Tebow - I just hate what his fan do with his success.   It is irresponsible and un-Biblical. I have said before that I respect Tim and that he does not think God helps the Broncos win football games.
