Phineas and Religious Pluralism

"Perhaps the most important application for the contemporary Christian of Elijah's confrontation with the Baal prophets is the absolute rejection of religious pluralism that it portrays."

(Thoennes, K. Erik. Godly Jealousy: a Theology of Intolerant Love

  1. I think it may even lend itself as a response to the amount of "variety" we see with other so-called forms of the Christian faith. There is simply not enough piety and reverence for the sovereignty of God. I believe that, without at least a desire for this in our own lives we are reducing God to a utilitarian tool for the giving us of the items on our wish list.

    Great post Jude!
