Something I always tried to teach my students and remind myself is the following ( blog readers know I harp on this): “that of which you are most certain – of that be most critical”. That should suggest that even though I am a committed Christian with a discreet worldview does not imply one should not be open to other faiths.How best to learn and understand? Keep myself open and intellectually honest and self-critical. Anything less would not be wise or helpful either to myself or others. I should, however, also be able to “give a reason for the hope that is within me”. If God can find me in Christ in no way implies that God cannot find others by whatever path or manner God wills. My blog of 11/11/11 “FRED’S’ THANKS FOR FREDSTOCK ” is my approach to a theological stance, worldview, and, as well, political orientation. Many of ideas expressed here are, I believe, common to many faith orientations. That does not imply that, inspite of commonalities, there are no important differences.
