Modern Theology

The difficulty with modern theology is that it is no different from taking drugs.  It is one trip or another.  You may try LSD, you can try the modern theology.  It makes no difference- both are trips, separated from all reason.

  1. Modern theology is lame not simply because it denies every doctrine, but because it is boring and repetitive. Read *Christian Century* every now and then for example.

  2. That’s why I stick to my folk magic and other weird studies. You learn more about the human condition from a grandmother’s tall tales than you do from a volume of von Balthasar or Congar.
