The Second Commandment "No Graven Images" was a bolt from the blue for the ancient world. Who could imagine such a counter-cultural and difficult mandate given in the religious context of the ancient world, yet it was given. Israel failed it up until the exile but afterwards was able to keep that letter of the law. But why the letter. And then come…

Andrew Root notes on Paul Anlietner's podcast that the Mainline church has hit a wall. The clergy no longer has any role in the modern world. How did this happen? We'll follow the Charles Taylor/Max Weber analysis of secularity all the way up to Sam Harris and Bret Weinstein. Basically if you guy the anthropology of blind Darwinian evolution of the…

God brings Israel to Himself, but how can they actually be in relationship? The 10 commandments is the founding document of a unique relational covenant. It is different from other similar documents in the Ancient Near East. It is intended to begin a relationship that is sort of a marriage between God and his people. John Walton from Old Testament …
 
Tyler is a college student and he is starting a podcast. He wanted me to be his first guest. We talked about his story, Jordan Peterson, his experience in a Christian school and he asked me about favorite Bible verses. Here's our chat.

"Secular" is one of those words we use and think we know what it means. As Modernity falls apart it is becoming increasingly obvious to pastors and lawyers that we don't now what we're talking about. We understood it within a framework that is collapsing. This will force us to re-interpret the last 500 years of church and legal history. The re-inte…
 
Fixed the bad volume level on the first upload Jerry Falwell Jr.'s fall from power and elite status earned him condemnation from nearly all quarters in this cultural political war of words. Everyone reviles him now. Why? Is this evidence that a traditional sexual ethic is outdated and should be discarded? What should be the path forward for all par…
 
Does Your Sin Cause Hurricanes and Wildfires? With the US West Coast burning moral messages are at a fever pitch. While issues might differ they mirror what religious leaders have done for years. Human beings compete and cooperate around the symbolic imaginary. https://www.mediamatters.org/religious-conservatives-claim-katrina-was-gods-omen-punishm…
 
I was invited into the Stoa. To my delight Peter's description of the Stoa is similar to my vision of Estuary. Peter and I chatted for a bit and then we took questions from their participants.

I do Q/A on Fridays on the Bridges of Meaning Discord server 0:00 Re: “fatty portions” how does that line up the original sacrificial model. We now know that the fatty portions of the animal provides more flavor and fuel for human bodies. What would it have been like for those early people to sacrifice the flavorful and fuel rich portions to God? 0…
 
Israel didn't free herself from bondage in Egypt. God did so and he did so at the expense of the firstborn of Egypt and the blood of one year old lambs. God's demand of the first born would not end in Egypt but would be memorialized and paid over the years by thousands of innocent animals redeeming the firstborn of man and beast. This would continu…
 
Kale Zelden wrote this haunting piece about the meaning crisis and the Roman Catholic church that he loves. https://onepeterfive.com/things-are-broken-we-need-to-upgrade-our-sense-making-apparatus/ It got picked up by Rod Dreher https://www.theamericanconservative.com/dreher/catholicism-intellectual-dark-web-kale-zelden/ We sat down for a conversat…
 
Jess is back for another chat. Estuary talk ignited his imagination because of his story. We've spoken before links below. We go deep into what churches get wrong and why estuaries could help churches with their mission of blessing the world. Notes. What are reasons the church should get onboard with something like this Framed it in evangelism term…

In the midst of a COVID pandemic California is having its worst fire season ever. COVID drove everyone outside just to have the fires drive them back inside because they couldn't breath the air.

We continue to play around with formats on the Bridges of Meaning Discord. This is a panel discussion relating to the homeless crisis. Jacob works in insurance and deals with this crisis from that perspective. Kalepa has been homeless and then worked at a YWAM compound in Hawaii dealing with the homeless there. Richard went to Seminary and saw thos…
 
All three of us had hoped to meet in Thunder Bay this September but COVID put an end to that. So not we're chatting online. I think more emerged from this conversation than I had anticipated.

I like watching the program Alone on the History Channel. I am fascinated by their behavior towards the animals they kill and eat, the weather, and the rest of the natural environment. What does that say about human religiosity? https://www.history.com/shows/alone God is the Ancient solution to the Frame problem https://youtu.be/BqinRbjqy2c Gad Saa…
 
Moses and Aaron go to Pharaoh and fail. Pharaoh is smug, the Israelites are angry at Moses and Moses is angry with God. In response to this God gives Moses a genealogy.

We've been playing around with equipment at Living Stones to try to up production quality for the church and this channel. Rik produced this Q/A session. I didn't get the camera properly focused and I got distracted so I didn't do any notes with timing like I usually do. Here is the recording if you're curious what we talked about last Friday. Clic…

I participated in a live-stream on Sunday with Adam Friended and PSA Sitch. The question was whether ancient people "believed" in their mythological gods like contemporary religious people "believe" in God. It's actually a difficult question on lots of levels. I wasn't sure of exactly what we'd talk about and I didn't know if I was helpful so I tho…
 
Moses fails as a liberator and retreats to tend flocks for his father-in-law. God interrupts his life and calls him to do a job he's long given up on.

David French wonders if the Evangelical clergy are set for a big crash. Seems likely to me. Why? We're in a period of transition and modernity is fading. Peek modernity pitted eulogy virtues and résumé virtues against each other. We see this in Trump and Jerry Falwell Jr. Bill Maher, for all his anti-religion assumes deep eulogy virtues. How do we …

A couple of weeks ago I talked about Living Stones Online and Estuary. I addressed them a few times in Q/A sessions. This is a further follow up. What do I want? Where am I going? https://youtu.be/TVPhuqvcI0YNew website under development https://livingstonescrc.com Click here to meetup with other channel viewers for conversation https://discord.gg/…
 
The Exodus is the touchstone of distinguishing the hopes of humanity to end endemic, common oppression and the true path to liberation. Israel is bound in slavery but the script of the City of Man offers no permanent solution. Moses begins as a would-be liberator like Sargon of Akkad but fails. How will a living God unseat not only one example of c…
 
Every Friday I do a Q/A session on the Bridges of Meaning Discord server. To participate you can join here. https://discord.gg/jdVk8XU 0:00 I've been thinking a lot about our notions of masculinity and femininity in the church.

Dr. Kristin Kobes Du Mez has written a book on white evangelical masculinity and militarism. She's a professor of History at Calvin College. Mutual church friends had told me she was interested in the work of Jordan Peterson but we never got a chance to talk about that before she wrote the book. The publisher furnished me with an advanced copy so w…
 
Was ancient apocalyptic literature the way poets attempted to make sense of their disrupted lives? The Sermon on the Mount ends with a rather apocalyptic section.

Derek Thompson of the Atlantic had a very interesting tweet about the progression he sees from new atheism to religion curious. This responding to another tweet about the growing popularity of Q-Anon. Clay Routledge has been working this beat for a bit noting now when people give up traditional religion they don't become "rational" as the New Athei…
