Item description for PRISONERS OF THE PARADIGM by Harold Frey...
Overview In Prisoners of the Paradigm, author Harold Frey challenges Christians to stop thinking like the rest of the world. There is a phenomenon that not only infests the church, but secular institutions as well. The fact that belief and practice are frequently given more credence than truth. Consequently, many people go through life held captive by their beliefs. When Christians believe something to be true which cannot be authenticated by a responsible biblical paradigm, it is not credible as truth. Frey says: "Belief does not create truth." Readers are invited to follow his conviction that truth must create belief; to let truth define what they believe and practice. Quoting many scriptures, models of truth are built through comparative study and analysis. The biblical gospel with Jesus as Savior and Lord are strong tenants, however, other theological anomalies are given clear answers to questions many are not asking, such as: Of the two creation stories, is only one true? Did Adam and Eve break the Ten Commandments? What happens to Jerusalem in Palestine? Will the earth actually melt? This one of a kind book includes creative insights that explore the realms of canvas theology, truth that creates falsehood, a dimension in time not experienced, and much more. Prisoners of the Paradigm invites readers to an adventure in discovery of the freedom truth brings. Exercising the spiritual gift of creative communication, the author has served the church for many years through the creative arts of drama, music, and literature. Along with studies in theology and a passion for honesty, this creative blend inspires unique and credible insight into the scriptures. Frey is an active elder in his church, and continues to provide pastoral support through preaching, teaching, writing, and the arts. He aspires to esthetics and excellence in his work.
