Theology got Vaxxed?

“You got unrighteous doctors dealing drugs that will never cure your ills … when you ganna wake up ….” Bob Dylan. “Christianity must remain eternally unchanging, in no way being dependent on or guided by the spirit of each age.

The Age of the man-god

“… You will be like gods ...” (cf. Gen. 3:7). As in the beginning, humanity was led away to its own self-imposed degradation through a desire to transcend – through its own power – the state in which God had created it, so this same primal temptation will also be a primary factor in our …
