"Thanks for a thought-provoking post. My impression of why they ignore such passages as John 14:12 is simply that it's necessary to ignore all facts that don't fit the preconceptions, in order to maintain a rigid worldview. This particular…"

"I'm an Ehrman fan myself. And no, he's not a literalist, if that's what you mean. If you mean that he is a former literalist, then ok."

"Rev. Bray, I like your take on spirituality being AWARE (awake!) Good Stuff! How do you as a pastor blend your particular spirituality with your ministry?"

""Religion is for people afraid of hell. Spirituality is for people who have been there!" I think that quote is from one of the authors of Alcoholics Anonymous. I still use it. I think Buddhism, for me, is the clearest of all traditions in…"

"Yes! I read Bart Ehrman's textbook on the New testament in seminary. It introduced me to text criticism! I like his angle however I didnt know that he came from the literalist camp! I guess I need to read more of his work."

How did you come to discover Creation Spirituality?
I think that in my heart I have always been a Creation Spiritualist. Only now have I found the words that actually articulates what has been my own private theology, my own intimate understanding of the Divine: Creation Spirituality.
How would you briefly describe your spirituality? (Be creative! Don't worry if it only seems to make sense to you - we love the diverse and the hard-to-explain!)
I am Christian by birth, Presbyterian by choice, African by blood and I seek to incorporate them both into my life.
What is your first language?

Biblical inerrant(s) believe that the bible is the infallible Word of God and therefore is perfect and the only source of ultimate truth for our Christian faith and religion. And on the other hand we have those who believe that the bible is…

Divinity in Diversity

Posted on June 4, 2010 at 2:28am 3 Comments

In my short time as a Creation Spiritualist, I have seen and heard a variety of people, ideas, cultures, and backgrounds. And Ive noticed that amidst all this diversity there is still a sense of cohesion, still a sense of community, still a sense of connectedness. As a soon-to-be ordained minister, I cant help but think about the church and how much it can learn from Creation Spirituality. Sadly, the Church is splitting and fragmenting because it is afraid of diversity. It seems that the Church… Continue

Spiritual vs Religious

I guess there is a somewhat negative connotation to the term Spirituality,…

Wylie, which seminary did you attend? My daughter and son-in-law graduated from Louisville Theological. Blessings on your search of a call!

Yeah man. The reason I told you that was because you recently completed your Master's of Divinity and I want to do the same; however, I'm still working on my BA in Religion. I went back to college after a very long time. Peace and hope to hear from you my new friend.
