Shadows of Divine Things

This site is devoted to theological and philosophical investigations of the spiritual meanings of life, current events, music, spiritual growth, nature, and learning to be attuned to listening to the 'language of God.' The name of this blog comes from one of Jonathan Edwards's journals which he called 'Shadows of Divine Things,' and later renamed 'Images of Divine Things.' As a Christian I am continously on a spiritual journey to grow more into the image of Christ, to understand what it means to be crucified with Christ. To seek the truths of the Christian Faith is of upmost importance, and to know that any truths that are found outside of Christianity are present there because they ultimately point to God. I have an M.A. in theology and apologetics and I completed one year of graduate studies in Philosophy at Marquette University.

The Issue of Inerrancy

As of late, Chris Tilling has been posting articles on the issue of inerrancy. These posts began with two articles titled Propositional Revelation and Scripture parts one and two. These posts then led Chris to post his series on inerrancy (you can see these posts here and here). The exchange in the comments are in and of themselves worth reading, however Chris has brought forth several key points about inerrancy that have been on my mind over the last few years.

The issue of inerrancy hits home with me in several ways, especially since while I was in seminary I studied under one of the co-authors and representatives of the Chicago Statement of Inerrancy – Dr. Norman Geisler. Moreover, I have heard several debates and lectures in various settings on this issue from adherents of the doctrine as well as those who oppose it. So, the posts and the comments have been very interesting and thought provoking; if you have the chance, go check out the discussion at Chris’ blog. Also, over at Reformed Catholicism Kevin Johnson has posted a response to Chris’ posts that is worth reading. All these posts and their comments are worth reading.
