"Christ, Kingdom, and Culture:" Jan 15-16, 2010

conference2010What is the kingdom of God? How does it relate to daily life? What is culture? Is there such a thing as Christian culture? Is Christ Lord or are we “making him Lord” over all things?

  • David VanDrunen– “Christ and the State”
  • Dennis Johnson– “Christ and Education”
  • Michael S. Horton– “Christ and the Workplace”

  1. Could this conference address what it would mean in an education context to be “spiritual” but not “religious”?

    For example, Anthroposophy ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthroposophy ) seems to be an up and coming foundation in children educational institutions for Wa (http://www.whywaldorfworks.org/03_NewsEvents/index.asp , http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Waldorf_schools).

    A retired Columbia University professor ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Douglas_M._Sloan ) has even gone to bat for this “philosophy” in a court room ( http://www.waldorfanswers.com/Declaration-of-Douglas-Sloan.pdf ) no less, stating that it is “spiritual” but not “religious.”

    Sloan’s book ”Faith and Knowledge” (Westminster John Knox Press, 1994) is actually used as a reference by the Reformed historian D.G. Hart in his work ”The university gets religion: religious studies in American higher education” (Johns Hopkins University Press, 1999).

  2. Is anthroposophy just another form of, as was-so-expertly-put, semi-Peligianism or is it a possible detente in the cutlure wars between Church and State (i.e., a viable/workable interpreations of the Reformed Two Kingdoms view)?
