  1. I would suggest the following as well worth reading (and some audio-visual references too)... "Stages of Faith: The Psychology of Human Development and the Quest for Meaning" by James Fowler. I think this addresses a critical point. Our level of consciousness governs the types of perceptions and choices we have available. I found this book both useful for evaluating my own stage of faith, as well as that of others, which helps me better communicate with them (or so I like to believe, hehheh). Anything by the late Prof. Ron Miller! He has several books, of which my favorites are "U
  2. Hello all, A couple points in this conversation caught my eye... BillM, said: I would find Paul to be more misogynistic myself. Bear in mind, there were "two Pauls." By this I mean there is the apostle Paul, and there are those who wrote in his name, but were not themselves Paul (pseudepigraphic works).

  4. Hello, I found this forum because it is linked to from +Spong's web site. In the past few months (it is currently Sept. 2013) I have found that I agree with perhaps 95-98% of +Spong's points. One cannot expect to completely agree with the views of others, but I obvously find his perspectives pretty comfortable. I have enjoyed most of the YouTube interviews with him that I have watched so far. I came across an excellent sermon he gave ( ) discussing the bible as a lens upon human psychological development. Much of the Hebrew bible is written from the perspective of a tribal god. Tri
