What am I saying?

Posted on May 30, 2012 at 4:00pm 0 Comments

Last night, as I was trying to sleep, I remembered an embarrassing moment from my childhood.  I was in 8th grade or so and sitting in English class.  The teacher, one of my favorites and a friend of my parents, knew me pretty well.  She knew we didn’t have a TV (no good fundamentalists do, to use the No Real Scottsman fallacy) and that I read everything I  could get my hands on.  On multiple occasions, I’d read as many as 40 paperback books in a week.  In fact, my mom started up the library…


As Clear As Day

Posted on May 20, 2012 at 11:30am 103 Comments

I'm often accused of not paying attention to what the text of Genesis 1 says and, instead, basing my beliefs on other things.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  So I thought I'd walk through the first day and explain what I see it saying when I read it.

The ESV says this about the first day:

And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. And God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day,…


Two Dozen Interpretations of Genesis 1

Posted on May 17, 2012 at 2:23pm 18 Comments

I've mentioned in the past that there are so many different understandings of Genesis that we shouldn't pretend that it "clearly" says what I think it means and everyone else is just "twisting" it for unsavory purposes.  I thought I'd lay out the interpretations that I'm familiar with just to see how many I can come up with.  They are numbered just to keep a count, not to reflect any kind of order.

  1. Literal calendar week about literal, material creations.  Happened roughly…

How I understand Genesis

Posted on April 25, 2012 at 10:51am 20 Comments

In my last blog, How I Study Genesis, I discussed how I approach Genesis and the assumptions and expectations I have when I do so. But I have been asked what I get in a macro and micro level from it. So I thought I would bore you (or maybe frustrate you) with an answer to that question.

I think many today are down in the weeds when it comes to studying Genesis. And that comes across with the…


How I Study Genesis

Posted on April 23, 2012 at 2:30pm 66 Comments

Much disagreement exists about what Genesis 1-3 says and means by what it says.  And I believe that it is often viewed as the “other people” that don’t see it the same way we do are distorting the clear text, compromising with the world, denying inerrancy, doubting God, and other accusations that are less than helpful in this discussion.  So I thought I’d lay out why I read Genesis the way I do and how that isn’t a bad thing.

How we understand something we read is based in large part…

Thank you for the welcome.  I have just begun to join, and access this site.

I wanted to alert you to the following comment.  I have two comments on your site, yours and this one.  Is this a valid comment? i am rather suspicious.

I reviewed them already. No questions. :-)

I have reviewed the rules and agree to abide by them.

Your rules are basically common sense. I agree wholeheartedly. It's a shame that you even have to have them. If people were true Christians you could just say post. I'm glad to be here and I hope that I won't be a bother to anyone. The only thing is that I do drive a taxi in right now I'm posting this in a taxi and sometimes my voice text says things that are a little weird so please let me know something seems to come out wrong, its not my fault.

Hey Daniel! It's so awesome we're that close!! I'm in Roswell. Not only have I read the "about" page and pored through the rules, I ABSOLUTELY agree with them and shall gladly abide by them. It's a blessing to have your site among the biblical study, biblical archaeology, theology and scholarly blogs I regularly follow. This is great work. Be richly Blessed!

Daniel,  Thanks for the note.  I certainly will go by all the rules and I will be reading the information on the site.   I sure hope that we can learn from each other.

Sincerely, Bill C.

Hi Daniel. Thanks for welcoming me to Theologica. I was searching google for info re: prayers of submission and liked the post I found here. I joined St Pixels in 2008 when it featured blogs and discussion. Last year it became an App on Face Book and dropped the discussion aspect. I look forward to reading the posts here.
