Thinking Christians

This blog is dedicated to the community of people who follow Jesus Christ and whose minds are active – I think the title of a book of C. S. Lewis’ quotes says it nicely “A Mind Awake”.  (This was decades before “Woke” became a thing, if you’re wondering.)

Again to quote Lewis, “I believe in Christianity as I believe the sun rises.  Not only because I can see it, but because by it I can see everything else.”

Truth, rightly undersood, is about Reality.  Physical, historical, scientific, political, social, economic and spiritual reality.

Dallas Willard wrote “Reality is what you run into when you’re wrong.”

These thoughts are my attempts, as imperfect as they are, to encourage fellow Christian thinkers to get outside the box, to probe and test and think more radically (seeking the root cause of a thing).

Nancy Fitzgerald, author of “Anchors Away” curriculum, says that the Christian worldview is “God’s view of the world.”  Seeing the world as best we can through God’s eyes.  That’s the goal.

Seeing the world of culture and media and politics and science and education… through God’s eyes.

I’d love to hear your thoughts.
