An […]

Miracle Or Myth Or Both?

To connect the word “myth” with what traditional Christians have called “miracles” is to court both misunderstanding and disagreement, if not also some disappointment. Luke Timothy Johnson contends that for us to recapture a world in which the miracles of God are alive and well means we have to recapture miracles as myths and to […]

Mimi Names Willow’s Problem

From Christians for Biblical Equality By Mimi Haddad On July 24, 2018 The Bible’s Warning to Leaders From Genesis to Revelation, Scripture speaks emphatically about character alignment in leaders. It’s impossible to miss God’s point. Leaders have an impact on lives—sometimes for good and sometimes for harm. We will be held accountable by God when our actions are inconsistent with […]

A King Jesus Economy

I’ve lived through a few quasi-movements when it comes to Christians and the economy, though I don’t believe at any time there was theoretically sound ideas about the economy. It was instinct and quasi-theological and quasi-biblical reactions. The Bible was called in to aid in a theory. First, I grew up in the 50s and […]
