hope, change and judgement

I’m not a scientist, though the descriptions of my MBTI type always say I’d thrive in that field. Of course, they leave out that I probably should have done significantly more math work.

Still, I am intrigued with it, and adding to the intrigue is the fact that in current theological studies, interaction with science is a pretty hot pursuit. Not in terms of creationism, ID, evolution, or other combative interactions that are popularized. Rather, there’s a huge theological interest especially in physics. Pannenberg himself turned the last fifteen years or so to really pour his focus into science and theology discussions.

There are a lot of reasons for this, but a big reason is that there’s some curious realities in contemporary science that help describe, and indeed push for more deeper understanding, of God’s work in this world; not just with the particular science areas, but also in his work with humanity in Christ and Spirit.

That’s probably why at some point last year I bookmarked the following link. What does it mean to be saved? That’s not just a future reality, it’s a change in all our reality that affects future, and present, and past–with the reality of our future status with God, literally redefining what happened to us all along. There’s a whole lot more to be said on this, but in keeping with my new goal of shorter posts, I’m just going to post the link, which has absolutely nothing to do with theology.

Think of it as the undo button.
