Welcome to our first Kazingram Roundtable. We decided that in addition to our regular podcast we wanted to have a forum where both of our editors could sit down and have more personal discussions with friends of the Podcast. Axel is a PhD student in theology at Wycliffe College, University of Toronto. He specializes in the theology of John Calvin.
In this episode Jim returns to discuss Covid-19 and the future of education, Ancient Greek and early Christian ideas of freedom, discipline, the good life (and how these relate to practicing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu), psychedelic, and the role contemplating death plays in living the good life.
Is there a human nature? This question has been answered in various ways over the course of history. Some individuals believe that what makes us human is our DNA or our biological characteristics. Other individuals believe that humanity is a social construct – we are human because we engage in human activities in society.
In the introduction to this course, I pointed out that ever since the emergence of the pro-Nicene consensus on the doctrine of God enshrined in the Niceno-Constantinapolitan Creed of 381 AD, all branches of the Church in the East and West and both Roman Catholic and Protestant have confessed that God is simple, immutable and perfect, as well as loving, gracious and merciful.
