In Moot Member Blogs Pateron (and my first blog) Entry Tools Rate This Entry

So I am not really much of a blogger. The things that I am passionate about are playing Classic Traveller and discussing Theology. Playing Classic Traveller is better just played than Blogged about, and Theology belongs somewhere other than COTI so I don't bring it here. However, I have a sad little empty MOOT blog and I finally have something to talk about.

Aubrey Hansen is an author who is writing an alternate history book set in the American Revolution period where the revolution failed. She is attempting an interesting funding mechanism called Patreon which allows people to become patrons of the arts (like in the Renaissance) and crowd fund artists and writers. She is looking for people to sign up for as little as $1 per month (you can cancel whenever you want). Patreons gain immediate access to her previous books in digital format, previews of the current book as she completes chapters and some periodic 'thank you' stuff. If you are wondering about her credibility, her other books are available as e-books and paperback on Amazon, so she is a real author.

While this is a little out of the 'Traveller' wheelhouse, I figured that the Traveller Community was probably more literate than the population in general and some people might be interested in splurging $12 spread out over 12 months to check out a new author. On the other hand, Patreon might be something that a Traveller author could be interested in.

So here is a link to check it out: Aubrey Hansen

As I exceeded the character limit, here is the final paragraph. Eschatology discussions I avoid like the plague, as I do not believe that we have nearly enough understanding of what was actually understood by the early Church. Personally, I have no problems waiting to see what happens.

Greetings and thanks for the reply. I suspect that we are pretty close in theology, as I grew up Baptist with a leaning toward Calvin. The older I get the more I agree with some of Calvin, just not sure about predestination. I did attend Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois. First with the hope of a degree in Biblical Archaeology, and then did the classwork for a Master of Arts in Religion but never did write the required paper do to various reasons. While at the seminary, a few of the professors had me teach a class or two, mainly because I represented so well-thought out ideas of just war theory and New Testament history. With respect to the "just war" concept, there has never been nor ever will be a "just war" depending on how you define it, but some are more "just" than others. One of the bad ones that I use for an example is the Opium Wars fought by the British against the Chinese. Most people have never heard of them.

I am happy to talk about almost anything except Eschatology. God will just have to surprise me with the End Times details when they happen. I grew up atheist (nihilism), met God through a Catholic Charismatic Fellowship, was taught to read the Bible by the Church of God (Arminians), but read scripture and found myself a 4-point Calvinist (before I heard of Calvin). I towards Reformed Baptist in my personal theology, but learned a valuable lesson from the Moravian Church ... "In essentials unity. In non-essentials liberty. In all things charity." So unless you deny the Resurrection or Deity of Jesus, I am fairly mellow with whatever you want to believe ... (no matter how wrong.) [Just kidding]

What sort of Theology do you like to discuss? From Timerover51
