Cornfield Theology
The Parameters of Confessionalism (Part 2 of 4)

Cornfield Theology

Play Episode Listen Later Nov 30, 2021 6:42


I’ve been posting on why Redemption Hill Church is confessional. The term confessional has lost its luster over the last 100 years, but prior, most churches held to a Confession of Faith. In this series of blog posts, I want to show the value of confessions and why a local church should be confessional. The series on confessionalism is about 1) The Nature of Confessionalism, 2) The Parameters of Confessionalism, 3) A Vision of Confessionalism 4) the Subscription to a Confession. If you are new to confessionalism, or the term is foreign, that’s ok. The purpose of cornfieldtheology.com is to introduce people to new concepts, terms, and theological ideas. These four blog posts on confessionalism have been adapted from a paper I submitted to the elders of Trinity Fellowship Churches in preparation for Theology Day before our General Assembly in November of 2021. In this second of four posts, I discuss the parameters of a Confession of Faith. I’ll state the purpose of this post with a question: how much theology should, or should not be, in a Confession of Faith? Somewhere In The Middle A Confession of Faith is not a systematic theology book. A systematic theology book has its place, but it is not a functional expression of faith for a local church. In 2020 I took several members of the church through a systematic theology book. The class enriched the students. It provoked good questions. But there was a sense that the breadth of a systematic theology book can be overwhelming. A person could study systematic theology for a lifetime and die realizing they have only scratched the surface. And there is the other end of the spectrum. A Confession of Faith cannot be summed up in a few statements on a church website. Try this for an exercise. Contact your local pastor and ask how he decided what ten theological points to put on the website? Did he copy and paste from another website? Is the statement of faith so vague that a Catholic, Presbyterian, Baptist, and Methodist all agree? Far too many local churches, networks, and denominations refuse to be held accountable with “all that theology.” To take the words of Alexander Hamilton out of context, “If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything.” So, if a Confession of Faith is not taking a seminary class on systematic theology, and it’s not your garden variety 10 points found at a local church website, then what is the right balance for a Confession of Faith? A Confession of Faith aims for the middle. It is deep in its theology and wide in the various doctrines. A Confession of Faith cannot address everything, but it addresses much. A confession must have primary doctrine and secondary doctrines. Tertiary doctrines should be held with an open hand and often not included in a Confession of Faith. Primary doctrines include doctrines central to the gospel of Jesus Christ. For example, the incarnation, atonement, and justification must be affirmed, taught, and defended at all costs. Secondary doctrines are also essential and help to distinguish a church or denomination from other churches and denominations. Secondary doctrines might include baptism, the Lord’s Table, and the revelatory gifts of the Holy Spirit. Tertiary doctrines are not a point of division and distinction but are no less worthy of time, study, reflection, and conviction. A tertiary doctrine might include the specifics of eschatology. There is no need to break fellowship with a brother or sister in Christ who holds to historic premillennialism when I hold to reformed amillennialism. The challenge lies in determining what is primary, secondary, and tertiary. Primary doctrines are more obvious, but secondary and tertiary doctrines might be malleable d

Historically Thinking: Conversations about historical knowledge and how we achieve it

If there's one thing Americans know about James Madison, it might be that he was the shortest American President, ever–just 5'4”, or that he was married to Dolley Madison, who was not only a first lady but the baker of snack cakes. If they know a little bit more about James, then they know that he is remarkably, even dangerously, contradictory: an author of The Federalist Papers, the “Father of the Constitution”, who also penned the dangerous doctrine of nullification, and opposed his friend Alexander Hamilton at every step of the way; a creator of political parties who as a practical politician was one of the worst presidents in history, presiding over the half-baked disaster of the War of 1812 before slinking off the executive stage. With us to demonstrate how a little bit of knowledge can be a dangerous thing—indeed, perhaps one of the most dangerous things of all–is Jay Cost, author of James Madison: America's First Politician, a book which is not only about Madison, but about the political culture that he more than anyone else put into place, the ideas he set in motion—and those that he ignored. Jay Cost is the Gerald R. Ford Nonresidential Scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. This is his fourth book.

When Americans conjure the image of the signing of the Constitution of the United States, they often think about the various paintings that depict the Founders looking to George Washington on the dais at the convention. It is this snapshot of history that embodies Americans' perceptions of the Founders and their conviction in the creation of the great nation. What Americans fail to understand about America's Founding is the overwhelming anxieties that many of the Founders experienced, especially as they lived in the new republic that they had created. Not only did they find themselves anxious about the future of the new country, but many were also explicitly pessimistic about the future that they noted in so much of their later writings and letters. Dennis C. Rasmussen, in his new book Fears of a Setting Sun: The Disillusionment of American Founders, addresses this gap in research on the American Founding, and on the Founders themselves. Washington, Hamilton, Adams, Jefferson, and Madison all wondered whether the system they had worked to establish, build, and defend would live beyond their own generation. In Fears of a Setting Sun: The Disillusionment of America's Founders (Princeton UP, 2021), Rasmussen explores the enduring arguments made by George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, and John Adams that convinced them of America's inevitable demise. Modern Americans conceptualize the founding of the United States as an isolated moment in time, and rarely consider the reality of how the Founders spent the remainder of their lives putting the Constitution to work. Rasmussen places the founders' fears in context of the ongoing chaos of the late 1700's where other countries were facing revolution, treason, and anarchy. Fear of a Setting Sun's purpose is not to disregard the founders' optimism in the system they created, and in fact the book heralds James Madison's lifelong optimism and belief that the American experiment would prevail—though he is at odds with the other major Founders in this regard. Fear of a Setting Sun explores the Founders' disillusionment in order to provide a fuller meaning of American constitutionalism and the value that is formed in its implementation. Rasmussen provides a perspective that changes what scholars and the general public believe and know about the founding of the republic, the historical stakes at the time of the founding, and how the Founders generally grew more pessimistic over time about the potential for the new republic to achieve its great potential. This book will be of interest to political scientists, historians, students and scholars of the founding period and the ideas and personalities that dominated the early days of the American republic.

Frequent guest and co-founder of Liberty Toastmasters Brad Beck is in the studio to comment on his recent op-ed, Somnambulant, No More.  Somnambulant is French for sleep walking as in someone is awake but not aware of their surroundings.  Kim and Brad analyze the differences between Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson.  We live in a Constitutional Republic, not a democracy.  Involvement in local government is extremely important.  We must make the federal government smaller and have policies decided at the local level where the people are most impacted. Ben Murrey, Director of Fiscal Policy at the Independence Institute, joins Kim to discuss his article, Murrey: Governor Polis crippled small business, now offers crutches.  The Institute, under the guidance of Paul Prentice, published a report regarding the disruption from government policies during the COVID-19/Wuhan-China virus reaction disruption in the state of Colorado.  Some of the findings include:  Colorado definitively suffered economically due to the lockdowns in comparison to less restrictive states; small businesses declined by 43% from Pre-COVID-19/Wuhan-China virus levels to now; the leisure and hospitality industry was hit the hardest economically, and as a result the largest minority group, Hispanics, suffered the most financially and; the Fortune 500/box stores saw a 61.4% increase in profits while the mom and pop stores were deemed “unessential” and closed.  Polis, through policies, created the destruction of small businesses and now has a token offering by giving a waiver, in his proposed state budget for fiscal year 2022-23, on fees for those starting a new business. Marlin Kirsch, owner of Kirsch Insurance Group, explains the importance of reviewing your Medicare plan for 2022.  Anyone over 65 years of age who is part of this program, has until December 7th to make changes to coverage for 2022.  Kirsch Insurance Group works with most insurance carriers in Colorado and has proprietary software to analyze what policy works best for your individual prescriptions and needs. Kim and Brad continue their conversation regarding people who are waking up to the damages being done to our schools and our communities by leftist, activist policies.  Parents were extremely engaged in this last election. Policies implemented during the COVID-19/Wuhan-China virus were destructive to their children.  When parents advocated for their children, they were shut down by arrogant school board members, which increased tensions.  Education cannot be handed to the radical left.  Instead, parents must insist on their students' learning fundamentals like reading, writing and math along with civil knowledge.  It is taxpayers' money being spent and school board directors must be held accountable.  Much of the “new” money that flowed in due to COVID-19 policies was spent on programs that were ineffective or administration costs, not to aid in the success of the students.  Masks and vaccinations are other divisive issues, with most parents believing that it is a choice that must be made by parents and families, not school boards.  We definitely do not want to be like Austria where lockdowns have been imposed on all unvaccinated people.  It is very concerning that we should “show papers,” similar to Germany in the late 1930's, to go places.  We must all be active in our communities, including joining service organizations, presenting on a topic to students that we are knowledgeable about, attending board meetings, or becoming a member of a local board.  We must be

In post-American Revolution New York City, Theodosia Burr, a scholar with the skills of a socialite, is all about charming the right people on behalf of her father—Senator Aaron Burr, who is determined to win the office of president in the pivotal election of 1800. Meanwhile, Philip Hamilton, the rakish son of Alexander Hamilton, is all about being charming on behalf of his libido. When the two first meet, it seems the ongoing feud between their politically opposed fathers may be hereditary. But soon, Theodosia and Philip must choose between love and family, desire and loyalty, and preserving the legacy their flawed fathers fought for or creating their own. "Love, Theodosia" by Lori Anne Goldstein is a smart, funny, swoony take on a fiercely intelligent woman with feminist ideas ahead of her time who has long-deserved center stage.

Leur fabrication est rendue possible par la présence d'un important gisement d'argent.Et c'est en référence au nom du vallon, Joachimsthaler, dont on ne garde que la fin, que la nouvelle monnaie finit par recevoir le nom de "thaler".Du thaler au dollarLa taille et le poids du thaler ne varient guère, ce qui évite les manipulations monétaires et facilite les échanges commerciaux. C'est cette stabilité qui explique en grande partie l'étonnant succès de la monnaie.Dans un premier temps, le thaler circule surtout dans les possessions des Habsbourg, en Autriche et en Bohème, et dans les États du Saint-Empire. Mais il sera peu à peu adopté, sous des formats divers, par d'autres pays.Le thaler y sera d'ailleurs connu sous d'autres noms. Les Anglais le baptisent "crown", ce qui veut dire "couronne", tandis que les Danois le nomment "rigsdaler".Mais le thaler et ses épigones ne se limitent pas au continent européen. On le repère ainsi en Éthiopie, où il circule jusqu'à la fin de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, et dans certains pays d'Amérique du Sud, alors colonies de l'Espagne.C'est par l'intermédiaire du "rixdale" hollandais que le thaler serait devenu, sous le nom de "dollar", la monnaie officielle des États-Unis. Par une déformation comme le mot en avait déjà connu beaucoup, le "thaler" devient donc le "continental dollar", durant la guerre d'indépendance américaine, puis le "dollar" proprement dit.La mesure fut prise officiellement par Alexander Hamilton, le secrétaire au Trésor de George Washington, le premier président des États-Unis, en application d'une décision adoptée par les délégués des États américains.

Monday, October 25, 2021 Hoover Institution, Stanford University   In The Jewish World of Alexander Hamilton, Andrew Porwancher debunks a string of myths about the origins of this founding father to arrive at a startling conclusion: Hamilton, in all likelihood, was born and raised Jewish. For more than two centuries, his youth in the Caribbean has remained shrouded in mystery. Hamilton himself wanted it that way, and most biographers have simply assumed he had a Christian boyhood. With a detective's persistence and a historian's rigor, Porwancher upends that assumption and explores the revolutionary implications of his findings for making sense of the American founding. Andrew Porwancher serves as the Wick Cary Associate Professor of Constitutional Studies at the University of Oklahoma and an Ernest May Fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School's Belfer Center. His most recent book is The Jewish World of Alexander Hamilton. His prior books include The Devil Himself: A Tale of Honor, Insanity, and the Birth of Modern America, which was adapted for the stage in Dublin.  He previously served as the Horne Fellow at Oxford and the Garwood Fellow at Princeton. ABOUT THE PROGRAM This talk is part of the History Working Group Seminar Series. A central piece of the History Working Group is the seminar series, which is hosted in partnership with the Hoover Library & Archives. The seminar series was launched in the fall of 2019, and thus far has included six talks from Hoover research fellows, visiting scholars, and Stanford faculty. The seminars provide outside experts with an opportunity to present their research and receive feedback on their work. While the lunch seminars have grown in reputation, they have been purposefully kept small in order to ensure that the discussion retains a good seminar atmosphere.

A longie but goodie just in time for the fall of US imperialist projects in Afghanistan...and autumn. TLDR: It's giving very much hating on the not rich who did not understand the assignment of shutting the fuck up and running politicians their propers for re-election. A tax on vibes. If "Taliban" means "student" in Pashto--the US is the teacher. Have you ever asked yourself why tax reform is such a contentious issue and has been for decades? Have you ever stopped to think that politicking, grandstanding and "fashion diplomacy" is part of moderate, centrist Democrats' pandering to a more leftist, "progressive" voter base but without alienating their prioritized white voter base too much (think Nancy Pelosi kneeling in the kente cloth sash in 2020)? There's a slavery era explanation for that: The tobacco rice and indigo that our ancestors grew and produced were considered in Alexander Hamilton's own words “which must be capital objects in treaties of commerce w foreign nations” and precipitated the events that led to this country's independence in 1776 following the Revolutionary War. His more famous quote, though, "no taxation without representation" portends a more glaring contradiction: imagine being mad you have to pay taxes to enrich the British whose royal companies, militaries, fleets and slavers sold and transported the Indigenous Africans you enslaved and calling TAXATION slavery while actually enslaving people? Tax the rich is again policy sloganeering and is a liberal democratic/partisan rallying cry that can't happen in good faith in an oligarchy that siphons all its resources to an already massive defense budget. Just earmark our reparations, will ya? Maybe the majority of folks who at least have some semblance of a revolutionary or radical politic aren't hating on rich people or Met Gala attendees or AOC herself, but instead recognizing that she and other politicians across the spectrum are sworn to serve a country that used the international slave trade between Britain and Spain to generate revenue to build a domestic manufacturing infrastructure to keep taxes lowered for their most invaluable taxable import--Black people and whose Central Intelligence Agency created the Taliban to wrest power from the USSR's puppet pro-soviet government during the Soviet Afghan War in 1979-1989 as part of plan to distort the public's view of the barbaric, warmongering, misogynist primitive backward United States to continue competing for oil and other natural resources in Central Asia, including the global heroin trade to finance the invasion of other countries, arm the genocide of their number one ally in the region (the Israeli Government. See Kamala Harris's comments on Israel)while pretending to care about "women's right's" and immigration while whipping Haitian immigrants at the border.

But now, here's Stephanie. Introducing author Stephanie Dray Jenny Wheeler:. Hello there, Stephanie, and welcome to the show. It's good to have you with us. Stephanie Dray: Thank you for having me. I'm excited to be here. Author Stephanie Dray Jenny Wheeler: You are a USA Today bestselling author specializing in historic fiction. You do some great books co-authoring but this latest one, The Women of Chateau Lafayette, is entirely your own work. It has a lot of true history in it and is about an extraordinary castle in the heart of France and three generations of women, spread from the years of the French Revolution to the Second World War. It's a wonderful historic saga. What got you started on it? Stephanie Dray: Thank you for saying it's a wonderful saga, because it felt like it even while writing it. I started it because I had been writing about American founding mothers for a couple of novels. I've written America's First Daughter with my very dear friend and co-author, Laura Kamoie.  We also wrote My Dear Hamilton, which is about Eliza Schuyler Hamilton, the wife of Alexander Hamilton, America's first Secretary of the Treasury, who is now also a Broadway star. I'm not sure if Hamilton has reached Australia, but it's still going strong here. Jenny Wheeler: It is one of my ambitions in life to see Hamilton. I did interview Laura about the book 18 months or so ago, and I was resolved that somehow or other, I was going to go and see Hamilton. The genesis for the Lafayette saga America's First Daughter by Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamoie I didn't know much about Alexander Hamilton before I read that book. I loved that book too, and then I discovered it was coming to Sydney. I thought fantastic. I put my name down for all the advanced notice of pre-sales for Sydney, and then what happened? Early last year, COVID struck.

Twitter is a social media platform that folks either love or hate. It doesn't generate too much of an in-between feeling. It's known for short posts and hashtags. It's the place you go for breaking news and some groups like #GenChat use it to inspire collaboration and social interaction in the genealogy world. There are photo historians on Twitter too. But I was surprised to see a photo reunion trending. Historian and author Victoria Johnson maximized her Twitter reach by encouraging her students and twitterstorians (historians on Twitter) to share an unidentified photo she found in a used book. It caused a flood of comments, resulted in a reunion and landed Victoria in the national spotlight of CNN and ABC News. It's made me reevaluate the power of Twitter for family history ( and it might make you take a look at the social media platform).  Related Episodes:Episode 142: Vintage Aerial PhotosEpisode 101: Rediscovering an American Community of ColorLinks:Story on CNNABC News StorySign up for my newsletter.Watch my YouTube Channel.Like the Photo Detective Facebook Page so you get notified of my Facebook Live videos.Need help organizing your photos?

September 17 is Constitution Day—the anniversary of the Framers signing the Constitution in 1787. This week's episode dives into what happened after the Constitution was signed—when it had to be approved “we the people,” a process known as ratification—and the arguments made on behalf of the Constitution. A major collection of those arguments was The Federalist, today often referred to as The Federalist Papers, which were a collection of essays written by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay using the pen name Publius that they circulated around the country. Our guests Judge Gregory Maggs, author of the article “A Concise Guide to the Federalist Papers as a Source of the Original Meaning of the United States Constitution,” and Colleen Sheehan, professor and co-editor of The Cambridge Companion to the Federalist, shed light on the questions: What did the Federalist papers say? What did their writers set out to do? What were their authors reading and becoming inspired by when they wrote them? How widely were they read? What was so original about their thinking? And how are they continually used today, including in opinions written by various Supreme Court justices? Jeffrey Rosen hosts.

Russ Belin, vice president of the Southeast region for Broadway Across America, joins the Atlanta Real Estate Forum podcast to discuss the pandemic's effects on the theater industry and this year's exciting season at the Fabulous Fox Theatre. Belin joins hosts Carol Morgan and Todd Schnick for the Around Atlanta segment. Celebrating 40 years in the peach state, Broadway Across America is back in our beautiful city for a highly anticipated season of shows. Broadway Across America has 47 markets in the U.S. and presents the best of Broadway direct from New York. Acting as a middleman, Belin and his team handle subscriptions, marketing and present shows featured at the Fox Theatre. Broadway Across America works with producers to build out incredible displays for patrons to enjoy, typically bringing 10 to 12 shows per season. According to Belin, the past 18 months were tough for performers and patrons alike as the theater industry largely depends on the revenue from live shows. “It's been 550 days since we presented our last show,” Belin said. “Our job is to bring people together to make memories. It's been weird to not have that feeling.” The theater industry and Broadway Across America underwent many changes attempting to build seasons and reroute shows as pandemic conditions worsened. The main focus was to reschedule shows and plan and manage ticket subscriptions to ensure an easy return once it was safe to do so. According to Belin, it was amazing to see the support and excitement from season ticket holders during such a difficult time and how thankful his team was for the continued support. In residence until September 26, 2021, Hamilton is the first show to return to the Fox Theatre since its March 2020 closing. Belin expressed gratitude that a big show like Hamilton is the season debut after a turbulent previous year. Operating safely, about 4,500 patrons per show enjoy the magic of Broadway in person once again. Written by Tony-award winner Lin-Manuel Miranda, Hamilton is the story of Alexander Hamilton, a young immigrant from the Caribbean, and his journey to the United States. Working in tandem with acclaimed historical figures, such as Thomas Jefferson and George Washington, Hamilton built the U.S. treasury, as well as other developments, to make our newly formed country successful. Told uniquely and powerfully, Hamilton implements hip-hop, dance and expressive music to tell the story based on the biography by author Rob Chernow. Although Disney+ released the professional recording of the original cast of Hamilton during the height of the pandemic, it motivates many viewers to see the show live. Releasing shows on digital platforms allows for larger audiences to access the brilliance of Broadway. However, nothing compares to seeing a show in person! Although the current cast of Hamilton is not the original, it is a talented group of professionals, including a few Atlanta natives, that are passionate about delivering this show to audiences. This season marks 40 years of Broadway in Atlanta and will feature highlights such as Fiddler on the Roof, Disney's Frozen, Ain't Too Proud, Mean Girls and more!  “I'm excited that we're going to help the Fox doors reopen and get our audiences back there,” Belin said. Fiddler on the Roof is a great show to bring family and first-time theatergoers, winning multiple Tony Awards on its original run and the revival. Ain't Too Pride celebrates the career of The Temptations on their journey from Motown to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with well-known hits and a night filled with nostalgic fun. Disney's Frozen is a much-anticipated debut at the Fox Theatre and a great opportunity for families to experience the magic of Disney up close. Based on the pop culture hit by Tina Fey, Mean Girls will continue the stream of hit shows coming to the Atlanta area with comedy and catchy songs in this pop culture sensation. Despite current setbacks,
