Creeping Up on a Theology of Darkness

This latest episode of my theology podcast begins to discuss a 'theology of darkness' and thus prowls nearer and nearer to a theology of monsters...

(You can follow the podcast on Facebook at Theophilus Theologue.)

'You make darkness, and it is night, when all the beasts of the forest creep about.' (Psalm 104:20)


  1. The 100% fact of The Bible
    "Without Serpent/Satan The Bible would end on Page 2 with something as this...
    "And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed and they lived happily ever after
    THE END."

  2. Thanks for your comment, Tor. Not sure if I entirely followed it. Care to elaborate?

    I take it you mean that without the serpent's temptation of mankind and their subsequent Fall into sin, there'd be no drama, no story to tell. I could speculate on that, but I'd rather just say, well, the serpent/Fall 'happened' in the Bible and that's just the way the story goes, and this is just the story we find ourselves in.

    Did your remark somehow pertain to a 'theology of darkness'? I don't want to mischaracterise what you're getting at, so I'll let you answer that.
