Marianne Williamson: Politicizing Morality

Marianne Williamson, a spiritual teacher (New Ageism), author and Democratic presidential candidate, has a growing following. Many see her as something that will "fade," but I believe differently, unfortunately. After reading and listening to several articles and interviews, I am compelled to write the following (please see bottom for links of referenced materials). WHO: Born and raised in Houston, TX. In 1983 she began lecturing in Los Angeles at the Philosophical Research Society on a set of books entitled, "A Course in Miracles." Williamson claims that the books have no dogmas, is not affiliated with a religion, and has no doctrine. The "course" has been described by some as a self-st

Heaven and Hell

We are brought to the place where Jesus is going to teach us about Heaven and Hell. The destiny of everyone who lives... death. I am going to die. You are going to die. We are all going to die... someday. We have all been to funerals, and there will be a funeral for us as well. The question then is, “What then? What happens when I die, what is on the other side?" Perhaps this is one of the most important question we can ask. When it comes to death and what happens after death, Jesus gives us instruction. Before we get into the Scriptures, I do want to address the beliefs or views of hell that exists in the world. Why? 1) So you will know that the topic and the truth of Hell is relevant and

“Civil Authority," a look at S.C. Mott's Interpretation

In his article entitled “Civil Authority,” S.C. Mott (Dictionary of Paul and His Letters. 1993). discusses the presentation in the New Testament of the role of government, with special regards to Paul’s letter to the Romans. The article explains that although Paul’s teaching regarding civil authority is not comprehensive, it comes in the context of correcting misunderstandings of the freedom of the gospel (p. 141). Below, this author will give his analyst and critique of the article, as he deems this article both of interest and of valuable quality concerning its perspective on the occasion for Paul’s mention of civil authority in Romans 13:1-7, which is of the current study. The article’s s

The use of “Adoption, Sonship" by Paul

In his article entitled “Adoption, Sonship,” J.M. Scott (Hawthorne, Gerald F.; Martin, Ralph P.; Reid, Daniel G., eds. Dictionary of Paul and His Letters. 1993). explains the significance and meaning of Husiothesia in Paul letters which will influence one’s interpretation of Paul’s work. The points of current interest are Paul’s use of “adoption,” and the specifics of “adoption” in context of sonship and slavery in Romans which is of central importance to our interruption of Romans. This author found this article to be of overall value to New Testaments studies as the study of adoption and sonship has aided interpreting and understanding of the historical background of Paul’s letters, partic

Demonic Tempting in the Christian's Democratic Spirit

The following is satire... From Principality Officer, Demon Slubgob. To Private, Demon Wormwood. I was informed that you were having a hard time deceiving and tempting the Christian in his goodwill for his country. For this reason, I am writing. For the Christian, the best point of attack would be the borderline between theology and politics. It is very good when Christians are very much enthused and alive to the social implications of their religion. Of course, the social implications of their Gospel are bad for us, but never doubt that we can make some good out of it to win many battles. As a standard rule, we can not allow their Christianity to flow over to their political life. When yo
