Essay Later Today: And Call for Submissions
My essay, to be published at 15.30, Saturday 29 July, is in a somewhat Chestertonian vein. discusses the pagans of ancient Israel and the Gnostics of late antiquity, and likens them to their contemporary successors.
If Nimrod and Nebuchadnezzar symbolised a crushing conformism that is rightly feared, the neo-pagans of today, with their uncritical ‘celebration of diversity,’ are no panacea.
I argue that Christianity, properly understood, is neither the path neither of those who sought after strange flesh, nor of those who build the tower of Babel. The point is not to find a cynical and mediocre middle ground, but to go beyond the false dilemma entirely, and to engage with the mystery of the Incarnation.
Do you have an essay on the interrelationship between faith or spirituality, and individual liberty? I would love to read it, and publish it (if you will let me). Please email authorjf @ gmail.com; or ask me below to add you on Universal Libertarianism!
