Reflection for the Week–September 14

To not believe in some pictures of God does not mean to not believe in God at all, as the accusation often goes. That is, the picture of God scurrying around and answering every prayer or micro managing all the details of life for ME, does not a God make.


Not only has the likelihood of evolution put a formidable dent in these types of theologies, but the issues of Divine action have yet to be taken seriously by those who hold them. In considering what we are beginning to discover about ourselves and the world it seems theological positions may have to be modified. If they’re not, we will lose credibility and belief with it.
