“There is no theology among the Jews and pagans”, writes Erich Peterson, “there is theology only in Christianity and only under the premise that the incarnate word of God has spoken.” I. Moltmann cont’d: a. The subject of the Logos tau Theou, and therefore of the true divine theology is Jesus Christ. i. “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us, we have beheld his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace.” b. Task of Theology i. To correspond to this incarnate Logos tau Theou and to proclaim and glorify Him in one’s time, in one’s own context, and in one’s own community. II. God at the Ritz Reading a. Is the 21 century full of “wingless chickens”? i. We have lost the desire to descend deeper into faith 1. We cant think for ourselves ii. We have acquired material posssesions and knowledge 1. We no longer want to go and see above the threshold iii. We no longer know how to move toward Christ or dive deeper into Christ and the faith. iv. We have the ability but we are choosing not to ask questions. b. Ch.2 Masters of Suspicion i. Philosophers who sought to unmask the religious impulse as merely the expression of some profound alienation such as 1. Sigmund Freud a. Sexual conflict 2. Karl Marx a. Economic injustice i. The way religion was practiced was wrong. ii. Religion is the opium of the people. The rich used it to put the poor to sleep and to make them feel better about their economic situation. Although the injustice was why they were in the situation. 3. Freidrich Nietzche a. Fear i. Use religion to disempower people
