1/7: A profound conversation unfolds in John 4:21-24 between Yeshua and the Samaritan woman at the well. Here, He talks about a new way of worship - one that’s not bound by a location but by ‘spirit’ and ‘truth’. 🕊️✨ #BibleVerse #Theology
2/7: In Greek, “worship,” προσκυνέω (proskyneo), means “to kiss towards,” as though kissing the ground out of reverence. The Hebrew equivalent is השתחווה (hishtachavah) involves a similar act of bowing down or prostrating oneself out of the deep respect involved in worship.
3/7: The word “spirit” translates from Greek πνεῦμα (pneuma) and the Hebrew רוח (ruach). These words denote an unseen yet powerful force - the very breath of God, a life-giving power that transcends the physical. #BibleWords #Spirituality

My smart TV has myriad programs running—while it's on. There are beautiful, dancing images on its face and music coming from its speakers. If I unplug it—it's dead. Black. The programs are gone. Nothing is happening in the hardware.
My laptop however ...

If I take the battery out—It's also dead. The screen is black. Nothing is happeneing in the hardware. But, because...

Hi. I'm a #Catholic theologian. I'm up, I have coffee and I'm live tweeting #FratelliTutti : (1/n)
Creating this doc, "I have felt particularly encouraged by the Grand Imam Ahmad Al-Tayyeb, with whom I met in Abu Dhabi, where we declared that “God has created all human beings equal in rights, duties and dignity, and has called them to live together as brothers and sisters” (5)
"As I was writing this letter, the Covid-19 pandemic unexpectedly erupted, exposing our false securities..Anyone who thinks that the only lesson to be learned was the need to improve what we were already doing, or to refine existing systems and regulations, is denying reality."(7

#Divine #Council #Theology Image
BTW: Divine Council Theology teaches that there is a council of supernatural beings that are above angels in authority. Some of these beings rebelled, getting humans to worship them as gods. This idea can seem to some as heresy at first, considering that proponents of it will
call this divine council (aka Bene Elohim ("Sons of God" in Hebrew) "gods" (Elohim can be translated as such). However, this is due to a misunderstanding of the Hebrew word "Elohim", which not only is a Name of God, but also a general term for beings from the supernatural realm.

Ingolf U. #Dalferth, der "theol. Rezensionsexperte", hat in der #ThLZ (Nr. 7/2020) mit Pointen nicht gespart - und ordentlich Staub aufgewirbelt.
Ein Tread mit Zitaten aus seinem Rückblick "Sind wir noch urteilsfähig?" auf 20-Jahre ThLZ-Arbeit.
#theodigital #digitalekirche
Theologietreiben sei haarig geworden - 4 Gründe:
1. "die Krise des wiss. Publikationswesens"
2. "die Entwicklung neuer Kommunikationstechnologien"
3. "die #Globalisierung der theol. Wissenschaft"
4. "die Tendenzen ideologischer Selbstzerstörung in der #Geisteswissenschaft".
ad 1: Der (theol.) #Buchmarkt gehe kaputt, "die Produktionsweise wiss. #Verlage [sei] weltweit in eine Krise geraten". "Geringe Auflagen", "Überschwemmung des Marktes", "Abbau von Wissenschaftskritierien", "Abbröckeln der alten Abnehmer und Abonnenten", "#OpenAccess".

1) If you think math (an abstract categorical conceptualization) can explain the ultimate nature of reality, then that logic also suggests the idea of a Divine Creator is also applicable. #THEISM #theology
2) Therefore, God can be proven to exist because the idea of God is real, and in the domain of mind (which is also where math has its power) God is real and has existence. If numbers are real then so must be the concept of God.
3) What's more real, the number of apples on a table or the number used to account for them? If one eats all the apples would not the concept of their total number be real even if, now, having eaten the apples, they are not visible to our eyes?

#thread This may surprise many, but one of the richest books of Christian Theological insight (in my opionon) is the Exorcist by Peter Blatty. The movie too has some strong theological insight as well. Here are some of my favorite moments from each.
"What we give to the poor is what we take with us when we die."
“What seemed like morning was the beginning of endless night.”

Gospel for Tenth Sunday in Ordinary Time: Did Jesus get his power to cast out demons from the Prince of Demons? #gospel…
//The scribes who had come from Jerusalem said, "He is possessed by Beelzebul," and "By the prince of demons he drives out demons." (Mk 3:22) #Gospel
//Beelzebub or Beelzebul is a name derived from a Philistine god, formerly worshipped in Ekron, and later adopted by some Abrahamic religions as a major demon. The name Beelzebub is associated with the Canaanite god Baal. #demonology #religion

THREAD: Call for resources to my friends inside and outside #theology!

Colleagues and I are working on a public list of resources to help deepen and promote understanding of Pope Francis's apostolic exhortation on the family, #AmorisLaetitia.
We welcome your suggestions for the #AmorisSyllabus. While Amoris itself can be easily read and understood by ordinary families, many may want to go further in deepening their relationship to the spirit of the exhortation, or in delving into particular questions.
What resources--books, articles, web resources--movies? poems? hymns? prayers?--do you value as in keeping with the spirit of #Amoris? Which have you found helpful in further understanding particular issues?

Grading #theology finals. Some variations on "Transubstantiation":
I've decided these have interesting theological import: Transbustination (when the bread and wine self-combust into Jesus's body and blood?)
Transubstantinarianism (That Arius...can't keep that heresy down. He just shows up everywhere.)
