Fools Advice


First a quote from the Dallas News:

Our image of God strongly depends on our image of the world, and our image of the world continuously changes under the influence of science and scientific discoveries.

- Michael Heller, cosmologist, theologian, Catholic priest, and winner of the $1.6 million Templeton Prize
Then a comment from one Fred Bailey:

This man needs to spend more time reading the Bible than he does watching CNN or The Science Channel.

While I'm not exactly familiar with a "cosmologist", and don't desire to be - it is probably in the metaphysical realm, which is very dangersous (sic) scripturally. I do know what it means to consult with the stars, mediums and the like, for advice.
Oh, my ...

Also, as a "teacher", he might consider these scriptures instead of his horoscope ...
Uh ...

God does not change - and no man should be foolish enough to even suggest that He does. ...

Man should alter his opinion to meet God's, not vice versa.
But ...

I do not wish to misunderstand Mr Heller, and if I have, I wish he would please point that out to me.
Too late.

Comments:
"While I'm not exactly familiar with a "cosmologist..."

That's easily fixed. Will someone please buy this poor slob a dictionary?
 
And here I thought cosmologists specialized in putting on make-up.
 
It sounds as if the sophistcated theology which atheists are told they fail to address has yet to reach the Fred Bailey's of this world.

Still, Bailey's unsophisticated theology is a dwindling minority and hardly representative of what mainstream Christians believe, isn't it?

Isn't it?
 
Why we don't take these lackwits seriously, Exhibit A.

Thank you for the belly laugh, John!

Depends on how you define "mainstream." But people like Bailey will probably get a sophisticated understanding of theology right after mainstream secularists get a sophisticated understanding of evolutionary theory.
