Each Week on Saturday, I’ll be asking a “Question of the Week.” I’d love your input and discussion! Ask a good question in the comments and it may show up as the next week’s question! I may answer the questions in the comments myself.
Obscure Theological Topics
The picture on the left (which I took and then added a question mark with my mad paint skills) is perhaps more appropriate this week than most, because some people may be scratching their heads:
What’s your favorite obscure theological topic? Why? What relevance does it have in the broader scheme of things?
Theology is an area of thought that has existed since the beginning of humanity. As such, there are a lot of topics to focus on (understatement). Think about some that interest you. I think a lot of my readers are probably interested in some cool stuff, and I want to know about it! Here are some examples of “obscure” theological topics: aliens and Christian theology or King James Onlyism. What are some you’re interested in? How do you apply what you’ve looked into in that area to a broader schematic of Christian theology?
Be sure to check out the page for this site on Facebook and Twitter for discussion of posts, links to other pages of interest, random talk about theology/philosophy/apologetics/movies and more.
Question of the Week– Check out other questions and give me some answers!
Did our soul/spirit evolve?
This is a huge area of research and one with many different views and facets. What is your favorite pursuit in this area?
I think for me it’s with the doctrine of sin…I think it should shape how we present our evidences for the faith
There are so many facets to the doctrine of sin, as well! What insights have you found in pursuing this?
When they say we are made in Gods image, does that mean Gods appearance resembles that of a mortal man, or is it our souls that resembles God?
Mainly because human anatomy resembles very closely that of mammals.
That is indeed a fascinating topic. The question of the “image of God” is one which has been quite interesting to me whenever I’ve read anything about it.
The old idea of the “noble pagan.” What happened to people who died a few days after the resurrection, but lived thousands of miles away? I know it’s a difficult subject, and much of the time I can only lean upon the goodness of a God who knows more than I do.
