For your edification:

Here TOF lambastes a recent Time magazine article.  “The first thing the Reader notices is that these ten replacements for the ten commandments are not in fact commandments, but simply opportunities for one to pat oneself on the back. They tell us nothing about the nature of the good.”

An outstanding critique, reminiscent of a hard-hitting and challenging essay I once wrote.

“What I want to say is this. My own experience with my physical, psychological, and spiritual disease, and my healing from all of it — a healing that spiritually, is still ongoing, and will be for the rest of my life — has confirmed my opinion that Moralistic Therapeutic Deism is quack religion. It’s like a doctor who gives the sick sugar pills because they taste good. My priest did not batter me with fire-and-brimstone religion at all, but he insisted, in his quiet, serious way, that my own sinfulness had to be confronted, and confronted repeatedly, if I wanted to get well.”


About prophetize

Erstwhile philosopher and ersatz thinker. Arabic linguist by profession. Dabble with a few other languages. I have a testimony of the gospel of Christ as restored through Joseph Smith. Strong faith in modern prophecy and prophets. Disinclined to be admiring of what passes for "progressiveness" these days.

Come on
