The Love of God

August 1, 2008

Theology_Matters The Love of God Hosea’s marriage to the prostitute Gomer was a living parable. Their strange union was intended to shock Israel into recognizing God’s faithfulness and their own infidelity (Hosea 1:2).

Keeping Faith: A Theology of Leadership

March 1, 2007

Theology_Matters Keeping Faith: A Theology of Leadership A Christian theology of leadership requires a theology of submission.

Senses and Sensibility

October 1, 2017

Theology_Matters Senses and Sensibility The five physical senses (sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch) are all functions of the body. They require a body and a brain in order to exist, and without these there is no experience of what we call the senses. But is this all there is to us? When we die, does all human sensibility also disappear?

Grace and Works
