I hope this paper is of interest, personally I found it remarkable. Abraham Heschel has always been a favorite of mine.
There is another block to Jewish theology. This danger is a more insidious one. I refer to the Hellenization of Jewish theology… To oversimplify the matter: this approach would have Plato and Moses, for example, say the same thing. Only, Plato would say it in Greek and Moses in Hebrew. Consequently, you can say that Moses was a sort of Hebrew Plato. This view has had a...
A Trinitarian creed begins:
“I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and Earth and all things visible and invisible.”
This statement of belief is quite explicit and clear. It states that there is one God, entitled, ‘Father’, who is almighty.
On top of that the creed is clear that the belief is that this ‘Almighty Father’ created all things.
The question is: How did one almighty God who created all things turn into three persons, one called ‘Father’, who did not...
I decided to start fresh with a new thread to continue our conversation because that other thread got derailed and I do not plan to post on it anymore.
Good, then you understand my position. I'm just lucky enough to have never been indoctrinated with a implicit belief in God and so didn't have an issue when I was able to reach this logical conclusion.

The pain and negativity I endured as a Christian finally led me to Wicca and then to polytheism, which has been a very positive experience for me. Since giving up my Christian...
My latest post in the thread where I'm trying to show eloquence of Quran and signs of it being from God in that respect.
What does this have to do with eloquence? One way to define eloquence, is to talk about words picked in a way that are very well placed with respect to one another. That out of the words picked as there are many ways to say the same thing, the choice of words are very well chosen.
Now with respect to the reward verses, I believe I have not only shown...
Then the question has no value. According to Richard Dawkins.
Science does answer some "why" questions, including questions about the purposes of things. Those it does not answer may simply be unanswerable. The questions "what is the purpose of a light bulb?," "what is the purpose of a firefly's light,?" and "what is the purpose of the sun?" all look like the same sort of question superficially, but are importantly different. The first invites an answer in terms of the intentions of those...
Yadavas Hebrews were farmers. How come Jews thought Hebrews were slaves?
