It might have been two academicians tired of Mirecki giving KU a bad name...

But, who knows. Mirecki says he was beaten.

I thought this was a very thoughtful and scholarly piece, and it does give us a lot to think about. However, I think the author has only given an opposing perspective of the issue, rather than a balanced one.

The Bible reveals both a transcendent and an immanent God--He is the Lord God Almighty highly exalted whose face no man can see, but he also calls Moses his friend and shares his name with his people. Our modern culture is certainly lop-sided on the "God is my buddy" kick. But it is God himself who calls us His Bride, His Body, "his friends". So, I think this is a both/and not an either/or issue.

And I'm not so sure culutral accomadation is such a sin... to be sure it can be... but speaking in a language that is relevant and real, one that means something to its hearers... well, Jesus did that Himself, didn't he?
