About me and some stuff that I decided to write about.
In making the documentary Atheism – A Rough History of Disbelief, Jonathan Miller was pressed for time and could not include the full-length interviews with all those he spoke to. They appeared only in edited form. The only theologian he interviewed was Denys Turner, who actually offers some interesting discussion about the existence of God: You can find the full length interview here: http://religionandatheism.wordpress.com/2007/07/06/atheism-tapes-denys-turner-interview-with-jonathan-miller/
I cannot absolve the iniquity of all organized religions over time, except to say that whatever mankind touches eventually smacks of Adam’s sin when left to the unconverted heart. What made this three hour program so devastating to me was the fact that so-called Christian hypocrisy is terribly easy to observe and condemn. Little has changed since Constantine in this regard.
My conclusion is one of pragmatism. When one chooses to seek out malevolence in any institution it is natural to ignore the honorable. The post modern intelligentsia is programmed to repulse any authority – be it religious or societal. Their entire education relies on his feistiness.
True Christians must watch their behavior as Peter writes in his first letter 3:15-16:
“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear;
having a good conscience, that when they defame you as evildoers, those who revile your good conduct in Christ may be ashamed.” NKJV
May Mr. Miller be drawn to Holy Writ for his illumination – Amen
