The book of Revelation and I have a complicated relationship. We flirted a little bit, back in high school, at least until it got me kicked out of church. I suppose I had a little something to do with it, given that I was an uppity teenager, full of questions and doubts in -- of all places -- a Baptist church in Texas.

It is the Beast's pervasive and pernicious nature, as well as its tendency to destroy those who are innocent, that Revelation seeks to reveal and ultimately resist. It is patriarchy's pervasive and pernicious nature, as well as its tendency to destroy the innocent, that #YesAllWomen seeks to reveal and ultimately resist.

Everyone needs a time revolution. It is not that we are short of time or have too much of it. It is the way we treat time that is both the problem and the opportunity. Time revolution is the fastest way for anyone to take a giant leap in happiness and value to other people.

Rev. Michael Dowd | Posted 07.01.2013 | Religion

There is a God of justice, and those who unjustly indulge their comforts at the expense of others will one day have to face reality. Numerical calculations of 666 aside, perhaps Revelation still has something to teach us today.

Bible readings in November are drag us unremittingly through the Book of Revelation. Much of the book's wild symbolism portrays God's vengeance upon evil. It's pretty horrible reading for postmodern folks like us. Can we scrap it and just feel the love?

Greg Carey

Pagels attempts not only to explain the Bible's mysterious last book but also to place it in a narrative about conflict and suppression in early Christian history. The book features vivid historical imagination, along with helpful explanations and provocative, sometimes dubious, judgments.

Why Does God Hide Himself?

Reverend William E. Flippin, Jr. | Posted 09.11.2012 | Religion
Reverend William E. Flippin, Jr.

A biblical perspective in God's hiddenness encourages us not to become overly anxious. God does, in fact, reveal Himself but perhaps not in the way some demand.

I may pull the Quran down from the topmost shelf, and sit in silent recitation, but if the Quran cannot be read in the movement of my limbs, the angle of my chin, the way I walk, sit and hold someone's hand, it is as if it had never been written at all.
