(Christianity) State of the Union

I came upon an article I just had to read.  A State of the Union: Progressive Christianity.

The article is a script of a Prof. Burklo of U. of Southern California.   I am not sure the implications of “progressive” in his title–maybe he considers some of Christianity not progressive and also backwards?  Ok, I will give him that.  I find some believers somewhat backwards.

I went to the site of the church were this sermon was given,  the United Church of Christ, Simi Valley, CA.   I noted their core beliefs which I have listed below.   I noted right off there is nothing about the person of Christ that is in the name of the church nor of the Bible, which is about that person.  But here we go on values:

We Welcome the LGBT Community!

OK, good one UCC, we do too here in the deep South.  We do not turn anyone away from the doors of our church, also “red and yellow, black and white” they are all precious in His site.  We believe that as well. Continue reading

The Glory of His Virgin Birth (God-Man)

This series is on Jesus, the God-Man.  This article appeared on Desiring God and Desiring God owns rights to this content.

Jesus was born of a virgin. This is a glory unique to the one God-man.

Of the billions of humans who have lived throughout history, only one person entered the world in this way. There is only one mediator between God and man (1 Timothy 2:5), and there is only one human who was virgin born.

Jesus’s distinctive birth is no myth or mere random fact from the Gospels. It is a special honor conferred only on the Son of God incarnate. And it is full of significance for knowing the person of Jesus and the God who has revealed himself in him.

America, Religion and Their History Together

Someone who has studied American history more than I has weighed in on what role religion or more importantly belief in God and America’s public forums.

I am speaking of Chief Justice Antonin Scalia.   His remarks were covered in the Salt Lake Tribune.

Below are quotes from the piece and not necessarily in the order presented there.

There is “no place” in the country’s constitutional traditions for the idea that the state must be neutral between religion and its absence. “To tell you the truth, there is no place for that in our constitutional tradition. Where did that come from?” he asked.  “To be sure, you can’t favor one denomination over another but can’t favor religion over non-religion?”

He also said there is “nothing wrong” with the idea of presidents and others invoking God in speeches. He said God has been good to America because Americans have honored him. Continue reading

The Eight Biggest Myths About The Bible

Christians and non-Christians alike do frequently misquote the Bible and misunderstand many parts of it—the Western perception of heaven as being “up in the sky” and Satan “living in hell” are just a couple of out of many inaccuracies that permeate not just Protestant churches, or the Catholic church, but our society as a whole. And those are the least divisive. Liberals and conservatives, Christians and atheists alike seek to use Scripture to justify their own viewpoints on everything from pork consumption to homosexuality.
