The Tweets of Zero Dark Thirty

I remember exactly where I was when I heard the news about Osama Bin Laden’s death. Odds are you do too. Ironically, I was reading President Bush’s book Decisions Points, finishing up the chapter detailing 9/11. Another thing I remember is […]

Where Have All the Philosophers Gone?

Recently I read a comment on Facebook asking, “Why doesn’t anyone quote textbooks on Ontology anymore?” (That guy needs to be apart of our blog.) This seemed like an odd question to me. Isn’t the answer obvious? No one quotes textbooks […]

Protestantism: A Single-Parent Household?

First, let me begin by saying that I have no intention of denigrating any single moms and dads out there who work their butts off raising their children.  The truth is I have a soft spot when considering the often harsh […]

A Political Kind of Day

Two things might help you read this post more easily. First, know that I did not vote for Obama but I have respect for him. Second, I consider myself to be a politically moderate person, but I am likely perceived as […]

The Lost Art of Conversation

Why I Created One Theology I created One Theology because I eat, sleep and breathe theology and philosophy. I also surround myself (generally) with people who share my interest at some level. I am privileged to know each of the contributors […]

Machines, James Bond, and the Resurrection of Christian Intellectualism

2012 saw its fair share of apocalypses. The Mayan Calendar. The Fiscal Cliff. Lindsay Lohan. If we examine each of these separate events, we’ll discover that they all ended up being nothing more than magnanimous publicity stunts. I think we all […]

The Church is Israel

The two leading schools of thought concerning Israel and their relation to the Church are Dispensational Theology and Replacement Theology. Dispensational Theology sees Israel and the Church as two separate entities. Replacement Theology teaches that the Church has replaced Israel. I […]

The Right to Be Offended
