Thinking Tombstones & the Grave

Graveyards, Tombstones…the speck of infinity wherein time has stopped. Here one is able to notice an era of foregone lives and remembrance that is now only marked by stones that are too large to move and to irrelevant to demand attention.  Some stones have been pushed over, some broken in half; others have crumbled fromContinue reading “Thinking Tombstones & the Grave”

Zizek reads the Bible: Thoughts on Incarnation

/ The incarnation is the perverse core of Christianity and the perverse core of the perverted god’s that desire the absolution of a person for the sake of their own divine egos. When the falsely innocent Christlike figure of pure suffering and sacrifice for our sake tells us: “I want nothing from you!” fails miserablyContinue reading “Zizek reads the Bible: Thoughts on Incarnation”

Easter Hope is Paranormal Hope that our Bodies Matter

ParanormalChrist’s genesis is the very ambiguous event that we call the Resurrection of Jesus.  It is this singular event that has shaped the contours of faith, belief, hope and dared to challenge the norms of creation by declaring that the impossible has happened and it has happened definitively in Jesus.  And this impossible event, thisContinue reading “Easter Hope is Paranormal Hope that our Bodies Matter”

“I See Dead People”: Zombie Apocalypse or Resurrection of Jesus?

At the core of Christianity is a belief in the para-normal; there is nothing more para-normal than resurrection. Can we at least agree on this one point before you read the rest? The recent craze over the “zombie apocalypse” has got nothing on dead people coming out of tombs.  Long before Woody Harrelson and “Zombieland,”Continue reading ““I See Dead People”: Zombie Apocalypse or Resurrection of Jesus?”

Did the First Christians Worship Jesus?

On occassion I will also post reviews to ParanormalChrist…Here is the first of many installments.  This is a book review I wrote  and was published in Review and Expositor: A Baptist Consortium Theological Journal over James Dunn’s little monograph, “Did the First Christians Worship Jesus?”   This an edited and amended version so as to make my points,Continue reading “Did the First Christians Worship Jesus?”

God of the ParanormalChrist: A Definition of Real

I will frequently be using illusively symbolic language on this blog.  While many folks have an aversion to philosophical language, sometimes words like “being” “real” “truth” “virtue” simply can’t be defined in any plain, simple, way.  To do so is to tame them, domesticate them, and to trade in a thoughtful life for one thatContinue reading “God of the ParanormalChrist: A Definition of Real”

The Stuff They Won't Include in Any Tourist Guide: The Real England

The Real England is a concise, direct, and not-so-gentle window into the depths of the leftovers of the world’s once greatest empire. It is told from the perspective of one lone (or not so lone) long term visitor. It informs one of the dregs of the country and helps to explain quaint British oddities such as the crack addicted chav.
