“Jesus did not come from heaven to earth just to get us out of hell and into heaven — though he is the only One who can do that.  He also came to get Himself out of heaven and into us.”  (Major Ian Thomas)

Going to ETS in San Diego! (The Evangelical Theological Society annual meeting)

Screen Shot 2014-11-11 at 9.51.13 AMFriends:

The one professional conference I try to attend each year is The Evangelical Theological Society.  This year it is in the beautiful city of San Diego (where our son and his family lived for a bunch of years).

About 1500-2000 Bible College and seminary profs (along with various other pastoral riff-raff) attend and we sit in conference rooms and listen to each other read “papers.”  “Papers” are scholarly presentations on the Screen Shot 2014-11-16 at 9.53.49 AMtheme (which this year is the Church), ask a few questions, meet with old friends, occasionally fall asleep in someone else’s presentation, and visit Christian publishers’ book tables.

Actually many of the papers are quite helpful, inspiring, and provocative.  Some papers I’ll probably attend are:

“Lavishly Forgive Sins in order to Be Forgiven: Jesus’ Parable of the Unmerciful Servant”
“The Ecclesiology of Jesus”
“A Critique of Young Earth Presuppositionalism”
“Society and Culture: Aspects of the First-Century World for a More Contextually Driven Exegesis”
“Does Compatibilism Entail Determinism? – A Pragmatic Argument From Purpose in Evil”
“Who’s Afraid of Theosis?”
“Spiritual Skepticism Over Art in the Local Church”
“Assessing Christian Hedonism”
“Challenge or Invitation? The Church’s Dilemma and Why Sexuality Discussions Are So Hard for the Church”
“Descendit: Delete or Declare? A Defense Against the Neo-Deletionists”Screen Shot 2014-11-16 at 9.51.23 AM

Don’t those papers sound interesting?  Or are you eyes getting heavy . . . ? (to be continued)
