WHAT IS DIVINE TRUTHINESS?
What is Truthiness?
Truthiness is a dehumanizing way of knowing.
It is harmful because it means ignoring the mind in favor of the gut, or ignoring feeling in favor of rationality.
We deserve to be whole human beings.
We deserve not to be required to check our heads or our hearts at the sanctuary door.
Putting the tool to good use.
The brilliant satirist, Stephen Colbert, coined the word "truthiness" to expose the confounding tangle of American politics. We can borrow this precision instrument to expose and remove the confounding tangle of theology where dangerous ideas of power ruin love.
We have been fed a steady diet of 'truthy' ideas about God's love and God's power. It's time to set aside these examples of "divine truthiness," to make room for wholesome, powerful love that is really love.
2 Corinthians 12:9
