- An interesting article in First Things called Proclaiming the Good News, that talks about the descriptive/proscriptive hermeneutic from a Catholic perspective–this will probably fuel the urge in many to “swim the Tiber.”
- A discussion between Italian Philosopher Paolo Flores d’Arcais and Jürgen Habermas on the question of Religion and the Public Sphere
- Here, here and here are few of the many (and varied) responses to the article entitled “On the Coming Evangelical Disaster” that Aaron reviewed in his recent post. . . .but be sure to check out (regularly) “Adventures in Mormonism,” for their take not only on this article, but as a daily reminder of Galatians 1:6. Rest assured, Aaron’s is by far the most helpful and insightful.
- While we’re on the subject of theological vacuousness, perhaps the coming disaster is a result of “the Thirty-Nine Articles of Religion. Taken literally, without knowledge of the historical controversies from which they emerged, or regard for the religious fanaticism and intolerance of the 16th century, and without taking cognisance of skewed and partial nature of many of the Reformers’ pronouncements—hmm, we’ll see.
- An interesting interactive grid that details the percentage shifts in Religious affiliation on a state-by-state basis. North Carolina, raise up.
- This article from the Atlantic, entitled “One World, Under God,” is a perfect illustration of the logical end to the false (neo-Marxist) assumptions of the New Perspective on Paul–it also has this amazing sentence, “In the days before modern anesthesia, requiring men to have penis surgery before they could join a religion fell under the rubric of disincentive“. . . indeed.
