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.Then a comment from one Fred Bailey:
- Michael Heller, cosmologist, theologian, Catholic priest, and winner of the $1.6 million Templeton Prize
This man needs to spend more time reading the Bible than he does watching CNN or The Science Channel.Oh, my ...
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.
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. ...But ...
Man should alter his opinion to meet God's, not vice versa.
I do not wish to misunderstand Mr Heller, and if I have, I wish he would please point that out to me.Too late.
That's easily fixed. Will someone please buy this poor slob a dictionary?
Still, Bailey's unsophisticated theology is a dwindling minority and hardly representative of what mainstream Christians believe, isn't it?
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.
