My Year End Assessment is totally free forms. I have limited the notes here to highlights of programs I have done over these 52 weeks of programing. Yet, generally speaking, I am focussing on the theme of Political Theology for this week.
Before I go further, there have been a couple individuals who have been faithful financial supporters of the program, as well as, a couple others that joined in with one time gifts. A warm Thank You.
Now, Let me summarize the past year and the one going forward:
Everything is theological. The question is what theology as ascribed to what god?
‘We find by examining its (Christianity’s) history, that, in rude ages, its influence has softened the savage and civilized the barbarian; while in polished ages and communities, it has accomplished the no less important end of communicating and preserving the moral and religious principle, which, among a cultivated people, is in peculiar danger of being extinguished amid the refinements, the gaiety, and the frivolous amusements incident to such a state of society.’ – 1833
As I always say: The Anti-federalists Got It Right, and they clearly predicted our present especially in their full understanding of the ramifications of those American sons of the enlightenment who argued for the Constitution of 1787. The Anti-federalists expected the pulpits to hold true to Christian Orthodoxy but knew full well that the humanism of the enlightenment and the theological shift to Universalism and Unitarianism would be the demise of Constitutionalism.
