John 1 and Greek Thought

For the Easter 2009 edition of the Guardian Science Weekly podcast, Alok Jha discusses Christopher Potter’s book, You Are Here: A Portable History of the Universe.

The “skeptical audience” to whom Alok Jha refers is those people who are skeptical of a materialistic explaination of the universe.

Christopher Potter’s reply is fascinating and correlates strongly to John 1:1-18.

This exchange correlates closely to a comment I left on change.org in response to Damon Ballard recently. (Please note the high quality of Damon’s reply!)

What Not to Teach

Saint TimothyImage via Wikipedia

In verses 3-4, Paul emphasizes Timothy‘s charge to emphasize what shouldn’t be taught.

This is surprising. I’d have expected Paul to lead with a statement of what Timothy should be teaching.

There is great value in restraining wrong thinking. At times, it can be more urgent than implementing right thinking.
