The Toranto Blessing -- A Decade Later

I recently became aware that last January marked the 10th anniversary of the Toronto Blessing movement.  Apparently, from nearly the beginning there were those who were "for" it and those who were "against".  Quite honestly, I never paid much attention.  Some of the ongoing theological critique seems to have been that the movement was theologically "lite" -- an "experience" without a theology.  Other critics argued that it was non-biblical.  Most of the claims made in favor of the movement…See More

Christ As Clinician

This has been one paradigm I've been playing with in my mind for the last two weeks.    And I would say (I think there is some kind of best selling Christian book to be had by taking that theme and really, really running with it).   (And my intuitions are seldom wrong when it comes to "what is hot", what works etc.)This is assuming, a person actually had access to a real life publisher.   OF course come to think of it there is always "Net publishing".Why Christ the Clinician?    Many years…See More

Whence truth?

Been reading the Cambridge history of Renaissance Philosophy.  The first part concerns printing and censorship -- a bit thin on philosophical interest.  However, something I read did strike me as an assumption I often make, but do not share with others.  That assumption that a man might find truth amidst error.  At that time it served as a defense of reading classical pagan authors, and some contemporary humanist authors.  So we have two views at work (and still do): one holding that it is…See More

First Thessalonians and the Wrath of God against the Jews

Started by Frank P. Spinella Jr. in Theology (General). Last reply by Robert Atwood Dec 7. 6 Replies

Since 1 Thess. 2:16 refers to God's wrath (ὀργὴ) against the Jews as having already come (ἔφθασεν), I hesitate to conclude that Paul was referring to a future event.  Given that his letter was…Continue

Salvation for the Gentiles: Why Such Slow Traction?

The notion that Christ died for the remission of Gentile as well as Jewish sins is generally presumed to have originated with Paul.  Before the gospels were written the doctrine of atonement was…Continue
