The Problem of Integration John Coe affirms the assertion, ‘Man must know himself and God,’ but questions modern methodologies, both Christian and otherwise. Speaking old wisdom into a ‘rent reality,’ Coe refuses to accept any of the divorced categories of modernity, manufactured by a fundamentally secular epistemology. The first important recovery he proposes is the […]
QUEEN “Thou know’st tis common, all that lives must die, Passing through nature to eternity” HAMLET Ay, madam, it is common. Hamlet, Act I, Scene II As Hamlet reflects upon the death of his father, he mourns the brevity of life and the painful triviality of death. We too feel this as we survey what […]
One morning, my brother Googled “Bible verses for anxiety.” Many of the people closest to him were being affected with crippling anxiety and he wanted to know how to help. 18% of American adults suffer from diagnosable anxiety disorders, and many more of us regularly experience anxiety of differing degrees and types. I want to […]
Here at The Two Cities, a couple bloggers have engaged their past selves in various regards, whether it be their former eschatology or their 15-year old self. When I was 17, I started to write a few chord progressions and corresponding melodies that eventually, after a 3-year process of revision and re-revision, became a song I finally […]
Both Nietzsche and the collective Christian witness proclaim messages of the redemption of humanity from its current state. But just as their worldviews are different, so are their messages of redemption. In fact, the two worldviews are so different that one’s message of redemption is incompatible with the other’s framework. In a world that has […]
As a general rule of thumb I try not to engage in Facebook or Twitter debates, but occasionally and by occasionally I mean often, I can’t help myself. Not all Facebook debates are doomed, I recently engaged in a meaningful back and forth with a friend on gun control that ended on a good note […]
“Surely the Lord God will do nothing, But he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.”— Amos 3:7 Why do Christians no longer have prophets like Israel did in the Old Testament or why don’t we have apostles like the Church did in the New Testament? In my interaction with Latter Day Saints (LDS) […]
“Lex orandi, lex credendi.” Or so goes the ancient Christian maxim, loosely translated, “As we worship, so we believe.” If the songs we sing shape the way we think, we should be very thoughtful about the way our churches are led in worship. Songs are short, memorable, and have the capacity to pack in a […]
Over the past few months Twenty One Pilots (TØP) has slowly but surely become one my all-time favorite bands. I have been listening to all three of their albums, Blurryface, Vessel, and Twenty One Pilots (self-titled) pretty much nonstop. Car Radio The first song I heard by TØP was ‘Car Radio’. The song is unique to their […]
I was reading Josh Carroll’s post about the disease called “Critiqueomania” and I found that I myself have had rather severe bouts of this plague. Some of these outbreaks have been part of my former angst, but others seemed very well meant. Some were definitely “Critiqueomania,” but there were other times where my criticism was well […]
