Example text

Peter Brown likens Manchaeism in Augustine’s day to the attractiveness of communism in the 1930s. 18 Slowly Augustine changes his mind about the rational plausibility of Manchaeism. Granted one should not imagine that Augustine is simply, in a detached modern way, evaluating the options and deciding on the basis of reason which worldview is true. It is the case, as Peter Brown shows, that Manchaeism, for a “Hearer” as opposed the “Elect,” was an ethically convenient worldview. The radical dualism of Manchaeism enabled Augustine to indulge the pleasures of his senses certain in the knowledge that there was an untouched goodness.

For most liberals he is the great bête noire. He is undoubtedly responsible for the “orthodoxy” that endured for centuries. And for many it is an orthodoxy that is oppressive. The exercise of finding shocking passages in Augustine is a game that many like to play. ” Consequently, those who are not liberated through grace, either because they have not yet been able to hear, or because they have not wished to obey, or also because, when on account of their age they were not capable of hearing, they did not receive the bath of regeneration, which they could have received and by means of which they would have been saved, are justly condemned.

Once that is recognized, it will be clear that a theology of engagement, entailing openness, should characterize the thought and practice of the church today. ” The great fault line running down the mainline churches is this “conservative” and “liberal” divide. It splits allegiances and determines the “tribes” that grapple for control of the senior appointments and the policies of the churches. Increasingly, the actual arguments of theologians are not examined, simply the consequences or outcomes of the arguments.
