Poopy Nations and Character: One of the (potentially) great things about many religious traditions is the understanding that each human being is created in the image of God and should be accorded respect and dignity, no matter how badly one seeks to efface God’s image (the Imago Dei) in oneself through one’s actions. To discriminate and judge another as “lesser than” based on demographics is un-Christian, and against the teachings of many religions.
Toward a More Truthful Story: President Gary Peluso-Verdend challenges America to tell a more truthful story of its history and future.
God Does Not Elect Presidents: God does not elect presidents. Or mayors. Or candidates for any other elected office in the U.S. “We, the People” elect, or at least our designated representatives do, such as the electors in the Electoral College.
The Christian War on Christmas: Love or fear? Which came down at Christmas? Phillips Seminary President Gary Peluso-Verdend says the answer lies in our actions as Christians.
Silent Night and the News: "...one must dig for moments of peace in the Christmas stories. The longing for peace is clear, especially in Luke, but the reality of peace is not obvious," writes President Gary Peluso-Verdend in his weekly blog.
Cheap Grace and Dubious Public Theology Award: It's time for the annual Dubious Public Theology award. There were lots of examples this year, but two stood our for President Gary Peluso-Verdend in 2017.
Who is blessed?: This week's blog post is President Gary Peluoso-Verdend's attempt to take the world and wording of the Beatitudes as a template, and overlay the template on the moral direction the congressional tax bill takes the nation. He wonders what our national commitments are, who is most blessed, and who is most cursed by this legislation.
Moral Education for Adults: "I would love it if the nation, or simply religious communities, could find similar common ground in this: the moral formation of children and the continuing moral development of adults are difficult and need all the support a society can give," President Gary Peluso-Verdend writes in his weekly blog.
