Here are the latest Questions from D+D. Just a reminder D+D is a theological discussion group held at Expresso Romas Wednesdays at 6:30 PM here in Eugene. There is a similar event on Tuesdays in Cheyenne Wyoming, T+T which is at the local Taco Johns.
At any rate here they are.
The Questions
1. If God is neither male nor female (see Gen. 1) then why do we, in worship etc, refer to Him as Him?
2. If the Bible was written in a context then how do we as Christians make it pertain to our daily life?
3. Is the Bible more than a “Guidebook for daily living?” If so how? What is it?
4. If God is love how do we love God? Is our love of God anything more than a reflection of God Godself?
5. The Bible says “You can’t love both money and God.” Seeing as America is one of the most churched countries in the world, and seeing as how it is capitalist how is this quote from Matthew true? Am I ripping the quote out of context?
6. Who/what is the Anti-Christ?
7. Is any ritual actually necessary to worship God?

Hey. I found a quiz ala the bizzarro world blog. This quiz tells you which Christian theologian you are. I'm

"It is the chiefest point of happiness that a man is willing to be what he is."

You are Desiderius Erasmus!

You have great love for others and will do just about anything to show it to them. You are tolerant
and avoid confrontations, so people generally are drawn to you. You are more quiet and reserved in
front of strangers, but around some people you open up. When things get tough, you like to meditate
alone. Unfortunately you often get things like "what a pansy," or "you're such a liberal."

What theologian are you?

A creation of Henderson

I'm not sure how I feel about that characterization, but then again it is just a silly online quiz.
