Theosis: Participating in the Life of Jesus to be Made like Him

We often rely on sectarian institutions to assure ourselves that we are right. What if it is not about being right? What if it is about growing in grace & in experiential knowledge of Jesus’ Life (words & deeds), & his new/singular command: love one another as I loved you. You can know what Jesus …

Deification / Theosis: Better than Mere Image Bearing

Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you. John 16:7 The kernel postulate of this post is simple. Deification/Theosis is far better than mere …

Richard Rohr’s “The Universal Christ” is New Age “Christ Consciousness” is Convergent, Esoteric, Pantheistic Mysticism

Rohr’s work is an esoteric pantheist’s attempt to redefine and reorder the paleo-orthodox view of Jesus of Nazareth. It is tantamount to a Buddhist telling Christians that they don’t understand Jesus.

Q & A: Women and LGBTQ+ Leading Churches

Recently on an online, Christian community (the Unchurching.com Facebook page), I posted the following statement: When false, institutional positions/titles are removed from the Body, suddenly women can exercise pastoral gifting freely, as the Spirit leads. Imagine that! The responses to this statement were mostly affirming, and a few others posed very good follow-up questions. The …

Becoming a Believer

As humans, we’re supposed to be able to tell ourselves “no,” in the face of any number of instinctual appetites, b/c we can foresee the harm it may do us, others, humanity at large, or nature. This is the definition of morality; & it is what supposedly separates us from animals. — Lamb’s Harbinger (aka …

Immortality vs. Eternal Life

Say, “The Fountain of Youth!” and Juan Ponce de León comes to mind, along with every other conquest for famed objects of legend and myth such as the “Holy Grail.” Without the Indiana Jones theme infecting your brain, let me clear up the matter of what Christians mean by “eternal life.” In short, biblical Christianity differentiates between …

About

In a nutshell, the writer of Lamb’s Harbinger—Sam Kean—is intellectually an agnostic (because not everything: existence of God, etc. can be proven/disproven empirically); but, bolstered by math theory & by settled science, and by suprarational or transrational or metaphysical or mystical knowledge in his soul (see also HERE) Kean holds to a Christian Faith best …

Why Christians Aren’t “Perfect”

There is no denying everyone is morally imperfect. Yet, what is one to do with the fact that Jesus rescues from sin? If He does rescue from sin, and He does; then, why aren’t Christians instantly perfected? It would be something to behold if, in 100% real-time, Christians were perfected at the instant of trusting …
