posted by xscot mcknight

For a long while I have been teaching and preaching that all the Church really has to offer to anyone (and everyone) is Jesus Christ. That is all it has to offer. Nothing else, nothing less. Once the Church separates […]

Image of God: Meaning?

posted by xscot mcknight

Because of a few very kind e-mails and the blog there seems to be some reason to discuss the meaning of Image of God. First, I like to use “Eikon of God” instead of Imago dei or Image of God. […]
