My name is Scott. I am a retired professor of Philosophy (Ethics) and Management. If it's possible to be a "former" Unitarian Universalist, then I am "it," having become disillusioned by the anti-Christian sentiment that proliferates. At one time I was a Humanist "celebrant," but gave that up in the face of Humanist Fundamentalism. So, I continue to seek; I am a fan of Spong (having cited him extensively in my thesis on the Marian Myth), Crossan, Borg, and Levine...where, indeed, would Christianity be if it weren't for the inspired minds such as these?

Welcome Scott,

 

I would be interested in reading your thesis if it is on-line or public. Glad to have you here. There are many fans of the writers you mention here. Feel free to participate in the discussions.

Welcome Scott,

 

Some might say Christianity would be better off without the likes of Spong & Borg shedding light on alternative understandings! :)

 

Of course, I love their writings and am so pleased to have come across them several years ago as they immensely helped me understand the Bible and a new Christianity that I can more readily accept and feel comfortable with.

 

I hope you enjoy participating here.

 

Cheers

Paul

Welcome Scott. I think you ask a great question. I guess its the same for me as where would I be if I never heard of people like you have mentioned who can think outside of tradition and in a progressive way. I guess a believer in exile.

Welcome :D
