Resurrecting Logos: Part 3

Episode date:
Transcript published:

Dr. Jordan Peterson, Professor of Clinical Psychology at the University of Toronto, speaks at a panel discussion titled "Resurrection of Logos: the Divine, the Individual, and Finding Our Bearings in a Postmodern World," held at Trinity College in Toronto, Ontario, on March 7, 2017. Dr. Peterson addresses how the idea of "Logos" is really mankind's ability to express God's objective truth in a subjective world and, in doing so, make the world a better place.

So I’m going to start with a hypothesis. I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about religious symbolism and archetypes, but there’s a problem with that, and the problem is it lacks concretization. To think about the ultimate ideal as only something that’s symbolic, it moves away from the real world, and it’s partly for this reason that there’s an insistence in Christianity that the Logos is two things at once. It took me a long time…

Redeeming the Time

At Daniel’s Funeral

Transcript published:

Remarks at the funeral of Daniel Holland (+Sunday of All Saints, 2017), from his father. His deep heart, and how and why we pray for the dead, and how we should remember him. It is with actions, not words.

In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

I’ve written out only two sermons in my life. This is the second one, and the reason why is because I wanted to be able to say things and be able to get through them. The first sermon I ever said, where I had written almost all of it out, was for a wedding, of my daughter and Matthias, and it was a joyous occasion, and I had things I wanted to tell them. This, too, is a joyous occasion. There’s…

Of Gay Sex and Leaven

What does the Orthodox Church think about gay sex? The official answer is not hard to find. The Orthodox Church has always condemned gay sex as sinful and as something, therefore, not allowed to Christians. The case of gay sex is not much different from that of fornication, that is, illicit straight sex. Fornication has also been condemned as sinful and is not allowed to Christians. If a Christian man is a fornicator, that is, one who…

Darwin and Christianity - Part 17: The Final Chapter

Episode date:
Transcript published:

In this final installment in his Darwin and Christianity series, Fr. Tom Hopko compares the task and method of natural science with the task and method of Christian theology.

This is number 17 in my reflections on natural science and Christian theology in relationship and being inspired by the so-called Darwinian revolution. In this final reflection, which I’m sure will not be final! There are questions coming in, comments, corrections, additions that, when I reflect through them, I’m sure that I’ll go on Ancient Faith Radio again and pick up some of these, but as far as the formal series is concerned, this will be my…

Episode date:
Transcript published:

This is the next-to-last episode in the Darwin series.

As we continue our reflections and our musings, musings about the relationship between Christian theology and natural science, we would like to raise the issue today for your contemplation and your own musings, your own reflection, your own thought, about how faith and knowledge relate to each other and how reason and revelation relate to each other. We could even say how faith relates to reason and how knowledge relates to revelation. Can you really speak about faith…
