Evolving Theology?

May 26, 2013 1 comment

I have become quite the fan of the Religion page of The Huffington Post. The articles represent such a wide variety of religious views and worldviews.

Take for instance an article I read today, The Theology of Unitarian Universalists. As the article says, we may have a misunderstanding of what the Unitarian Universalists believe. However, after reading the article, it appears that a member of this church can believe whatever they chose to believe. One of their core beliefs is that a person’s theology is always evolving. (For my views on that, read my previous post). That alone rings of postmodernism.

How much confidence can one have in a faith that is always evolving? How much assurance can one have if their theology is based on their own personal view? If the sand is always shifting, can you build on a solid foundation? Just food for thought.

Can We Change Our Theology?

How Religion Is Killing Our Most Vulnerable Youth

I read the article, How Religion is Killing Our Most Vulnerable Youth, on the Huffington Post (click the link above to read it for yourself).  Do you agree with the author of this article that nothing short of changing our theology of human sexuality will save the young lives he refers to in this article?  My understanding of theology is the study of God.  With that understanding, changing our theology would mean changing God.  We cannot change God.

I think Bishop Robinson is using the wrong argument.  It is about changing our attitudes toward the LBGT children that needs to change; not our theology.  We must not alienate these children, but embrace them with the love of Christ.  If we all had that attitude, then perhaps things would change.
