Theology and Economy

     "To cope with this paradox reverently without attempting to resolve it rationalistically, the tradition of Greek Christian thought, which also used the word in its most general, usual sense(as we have been doing here, too), distinguished theology, as the doctrine of the Godhead as God, from economy, the doctrine of the historical dispensations of God in dealing with the human race and the world, through the creation, through the history of Israel, and above all through the incarnation of the Son of God, theology pertained to the language of the creed describing him as 'God out of God, light out of light'; economy pertained to its language about the events that took place 'for our salvation', beginning with his incarnation."

    ----Jaroslav Pelikan, Christianity and Classical Culture(The Metamorphosis of Natural Theology in the Christian Encounter with Hellenism), Pt Two, Ch. 17, "The Economy of Salvation".

Mission Accomplished!

"My Fellow Americans, a few publicity stunts by a terror group our partners in the region and ourselves have created has allowed me to convince you bombing Syria is appropriate---of course bombing Iraq is never an issue."
