A Mystic Impulse: From Apophatics To Decreation In Pseudo-Dionysius, Meister Eckhart, And Simone Weil, William Robert Jun 2015

A Mystic Impulse: From Apophatics To Decreation In Pseudo-Dionysius, Meister Eckhart, And Simone Weil, William Robert

William Robert

This article articulates a mystically motivated apophatic subjectivity that emerges from Simone Weil's life and thought. It does so genealogically, via excursions into Pseudo- Dionysius's and Meister Eckhart's negative theologies. These genealogical excursions expose Weil’s resonances with and differences from these earlier thinkers of Christian apophasis. To highlight these differences, this article pays particular attention to two spiritual exercises, attention and decreation. Taken together, they point out a tragic sense pulsing through and informing Weil's remarkable religious thought and praxis.

Antigone's Nature, William Robert Jun 2015

Antigone's Nature, William Robert

William Robert

Antigone fascinates G.W.F. Hegel and Luce Irigaray, both of whom turn to her in their explorations and articulations of ethics. Hegel and Irigaray make these re-turns to Antigone through the double and related lenses of nature and sexual difference. This essay investigates these figures of Antigone and the accompanying ethical accounts of nature and sexual difference as a way of examining Irigaray's complex relation to and creative uses of Hegel's thought.


The Resurrection Of Jesus: A Clinical Review Of Psychiatric Hypotheses For The Biblical Story Of Easter, Gary R. Habermas Dec 2014

The Resurrection Of Jesus: A Clinical Review Of Psychiatric Hypotheses For The Biblical Story Of Easter, Gary R. Habermas

Gary R. Habermas

Jesus’ resurrection to bodily life after death by crucifixion is foundational to orthodox Christianity. The disciples had encounters with Jesus after his crucifixion which caused them to believe he had been bodily resurrected to life again. Psychiatric hypotheses have been proposed as naturalistic explanations for his disciples’ beliefs, which include hallucinations, conversion disorder, and bereavement experiences. Since they propose hallucinatory symptoms that suggest the presence of underlying medical pathology, clinical appraisal of these hypotheses for the disciples’ encounters with the resurrected Jesus is warranted. Psychiatric hypotheses for the disciples’ belief in Jesus’ resurrection are found to be inconsistent with current ...

The Efficacy Of A Manualized Group Treatment Protocol For Changing God Image, Attachment To God, Religious Coping, And Love Of God, Others, And Self, Jacqueline D. Rasar, Fernando L. Garzon, Frederick Volk, Carmella A. O'Hare, Glendon L. Moriarty Nov 2014

The Efficacy Of A Manualized Group Treatment Protocol For Changing God Image, Attachment To God, Religious Coping, And Love Of God, Others, And Self, Jacqueline D. Rasar, Fernando L. Garzon, Frederick Volk, Carmella A. O'Hare, Glendon L. Moriarty

Frederick A. Volk

This study compared the efficacy of a manualized group treatment protocol on God image and attachment to God to a manualized Christian Bible study and a waiting list control group in a sample of undergraduate college students attending a Christian college. Thirty students were randomly assigned to one of the treatment conditions and assessed with measures of God attachment, God image, religious coping, and general spiritual outcomes. It was hypothesized that significant God image and attachment change would occur among the God image treatment group participants only. In addition, it was hypothesized that significant religious coping and spiritual outcome change ...

Concepts Of The Body In The Zhuangzi, Deborah A. Sommer (司馬黛蘭) Apr 2014

Concepts Of The Body In The Zhuangzi, Deborah A. Sommer (司馬黛蘭)

Deborah A. Sommer

In this essay Sommer explores how the Zhuangzi, a Chinese philosophical text that dates to the third or fourth centuries BCE, uses different terms for the human body. She explores each term's different fields of meaning: the body might appear as gong 躬, a sanctimonious ritualized body; shen 身, a site of familial and social personhood; xing 形, an elemental form that experiences mutations and mutilations; or ti 體, a complex, multilayered corpus whose center can be anywhere but whose boundaries are nowhere. The Zhuangzi is one of the richest early Chinese sources for exploring conceptualizations of the visceral ...


The Pauline Model Of Atonement In Romans 3:19-31, Norm Mathers Jan 2014

The Pauline Model Of Atonement In Romans 3:19-31, Norm Mathers

Norm Mathers

The Pauline model of Romans 3:19-31 is a description of substitutionary atonement. Sin, guilt, righteousness, faith in Christ, justification, redemption, propitiation, Christ a covering, atonement in his blood, substitute, justice, justifier, and the principle of faith are descriptive of this view of the atonement. A barrage of literature has arisen against penal substitution. Penal substitution has been confused with substitutionary atonement. Penal substitution has also been referred to as penal substitutionary atonement which isn’t substitutionary atonement. Substitutionary atonement has been clouded by such atonement theories as Christus Victor. Aulen’s view of reconciliation doesn’t adequately describe the ...

My Journey To Locate The Genesis Pentapolis North Of The Dead Sea, David E. Graves Phd Jan 2014

My Journey To Locate The Genesis Pentapolis North Of The Dead Sea, David E. Graves Phd

David E. Graves PhD

Two archaeological sites have recently been identified as Sodom (Genesis 19), but which is the best candidate for the location of Sodom: Tall el-Ḥammâm, at the northern end of the Dead Sea in the Jordan Valley, or Bâb edh-Dhrâ, at the southern end of the Dead Sea in the Ghor? This article argues that of the two popular candidates Tall el-Hammam is the best candidate.

"The Responsibility To Lie And The Obligation To Report, Scott Paeth Dec 2012

"The Responsibility To Lie And The Obligation To Report, Scott Paeth

Scott R. Paeth

This article is an examination of the moral complexity of the act of whistleblowing in the context of corporate corruption. Whistleblowing may be a morally admirable act underataken by morally ambiguous agents, but can only be fully understood in context. Using German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s essay “What Does It Mean to Tell the Truth?” This essay will examine how the kind of deception sometimes necessary in whistleblowing cases can be testimony to a larger and more profound truth.

Eight Is Enough?: The Ethics Of The California Octuplets Case, Scott Paeth Oct 2012

Eight Is Enough?: The Ethics Of The California Octuplets Case, Scott Paeth

Scott R. Paeth

The recent California octuplets case raises a number of important issues that need to be addressed in the context of the increasingly widespread practice of in vitro fertilization. This paper explores some of those issues as looked at from the perspective of protestant theological ethics and public theology, examining the moral responsibilities of the various participants in the process, both before and after the octuplets’ birth, including the mother, her doctors, the health care bureaucracy, the wider society, and the media. Each of these participants failed in significant respects to consider the ethical implications of the births in this complicated ...

The Moral Complexity Of Video Games, Scott Paeth Mar 2012

The Moral Complexity Of Video Games, Scott Paeth

Scott R. Paeth

Over the past two decades, video games have reached a level of technological sophistication that enables them to immerse players in complex stories and relationships. The games require players to draw not only on their hand-eye coordination skills and puzzle-solving prowess but also on their moral imagination as they navigate complex relationships and their consequences. Today's video games are light years away from Pong and Asteroids, and they have the potential not only to offer richly textured narratives and fantastically realistic-seeming worlds but to aid in forming us as moral beings, for better and for worse.

Spirit And Atonement In John, Keith L. Yoder Dec 2011

Spirit And Atonement In John, Keith L. Yoder

Keith L. Yoder

The Spirit texts in the Fourth Gospel fall into two subsets, one that speaks of an unqualified “spirit”, and the other that speaks of the “Spirit of Truth” or the “Holy Spirit”, also identified as the “Paraclete”. I find that the alliance of Spirit and blood at the end of First John is a clue that uncovers a similar Spirit and Atonement connection in the Gospel. I demonstrate that the subset of unqualified “spirit” passages in John are regularly supplemented or framed with Atonement material, while the Paraclete Spirit texts have no such supplements, and that this phenomenon reflects a ...

The Great Recession: Some Niebuhrian Reflections, Scott R. Paeth Dec 2011

The Great Recession: Some Niebuhrian Reflections, Scott R. Paeth

Scott R. Paeth

"This moment of economic crisis has intersected with another moment, one of renewed interest in the thought of Reinhold Niebuhr. Niebuhr’s wide- ranging intellectual curiosity touched frequently on questions of ethics and economics, particularly during the period of his own economic crisis in the wake of the 1929 stock market crash. Niebuhr’s insights during that period, which formed the core of what came to be known as his “Christian realist” approach to issues of Christianity and public morality, have something to say to us as we grapple with the questions of justice, economics, and social reform in the ...

You Make All Things New, Scott R. Paeth Dec 2010

You Make All Things New, Scott R. Paeth

Scott R. Paeth

This article examines the way in which the theology of Jonathan Edwards can contrib- ute to the construction of a Christian approach to ecological ethics that maintains crucial elements of the Christian theological tradition. By way of comparison, the article begins with an examination of the work of Rosemary Radford Ruether, whose approach to dealing with the ecological implications of the Christian tradition diverges sharply from the perspective offered by Edwards, and provides a useful contrast to his approach. The article then turns to an extensive discussion of Edwards’ view of nature and the theology of creation, particularly the relationship ...
