John Eidsmoe

Last night Papa and I went to here Dr. John Eidsmoe speak on Transcendentalists.

He is a very good speaker and I got a picture with him afterward:

The reason transcendentalists have broken off from normal Christian Orthodoxy is because they want to have some orthodoxy but do not want the direct revelation of Christianity. They believe 3 things:

  1. That there are special traits that only special Christians can get and normal mundane Christians (like us) will miss these things.
  2. That the only way to get these things is to transcend logic and go straight to knowledge.
  3. That God is in nature but man has a spark of divinity in him. And you should fan that spark of divinity into a flame by being in nature because that is where God is; so, since God is in nature, you don’t have to go to church, but just love nature.
