"Our ability to recognize #apocalyptic is, in our day, often most hindered by the popular, best-selling misunderstandings of #biblical witness."—@DavidDark
@DavidDark "Confusing the death-dealing forces that enslave, exploit, and crucify (what our biblical translations sometimes render 'the world') for the created world itself, such so-called 'apocalyptic' is a negation of this-worldly experience."
@DavidDark "It tends to view the physical as only fit for burning. In a kind of #Gnostic-style #propaganda, creation is deemed a sort of waiting room, irredeemable and best discarded."
@DavidDark "Confusing #redemption for escape, real #injustice - #political and personal - goes mostly unengaged, and the actual, everyday world gets left behind."
@DavidDark Given our current cultural climate, the media consumer does well to be wary of any product...(for it's) so-called Christianness. ...crude moralism and plenty in the way of slogans and cliches that encourage blissful disregard of the soon-to-be destroyed world...
@DavidDark ...market-driven theology will be viewed, historically, with at least as much embarrassment as, say, the medieval sale of indulgences. (David Dark)
