Law and Gospel

2009
The differences between the Lutheran and Reformed traditions in such matters as liturgy, architecture, and church polity have led some observers to think there must be substantial differences between the theology and ethics of their important figureheads – Martin Luther and John Calvin. This impression of substantial differences became more pronounced because of the unresolved debates at the Marburg Colloquy (1529). It is now common for people to think Luther and Calvin had very significantly different points of view on such diverse areas as the meaning of predestination, the relationship between the two natures of Christ, the extent of the atonement, and the nature of the presence of Christ in the Eucharist. However, while there were some real theological differences between Calvin and Luther, which seem very large because of large differences in personality, culture, and literary style, there is also a truly massive degree of agreement in the realm of theology and ethics.

Rights, Religions, and Ideologies

2009
It is beyond the scope of this little book to survey all the religions, philosophies, and political ideologies of the world with regard to how they think about human dignity and human rights. What is possible is to identify selected ideas or beliefs that threaten human rights or undermine the protection of human rights, to identify some of the cultural locations where these destructive ideas occur, and to briefly state why one should reject these ideas. The critique of such destructive ideas can reduce their influence in the lives of individuals and cultures.

Progress, Knowledge and God

2005
Those of us who are classical Christians and think that the God of the Bible is not irrelevant to postmodern society need to directly address the relation of God to the creation of new knowledge, as well as to the progress that is driven by this new knowledge.

“He shall surely be executed” or “He shall be cut off from his people”

2008
The Torah includes not only commandments concerning not only everday life and religious practice but also penalties for disobedience. Some, such as “He must die” or “He shall be stoned”, clearly intend capital punishment to be carried out by the people or its representatives. Theologians, however, still disagree on the meaning of “He shall be cut off from his people,” for the expression designates neither the party responsible for the administration of the penalty nor the manner in which was to be administered. James Jordan, for example, considers the term a command to excommunicate the guilty from society and from the sanctuary.
