The end of the beginning.
The Solar Union and the Outworld Federation had been at peace for hundreds of years, but that time was ending. Methuselah, grandfather to Noah, was leading the Solar Union headlong toward war. When it came, civilization would fall. Powerless to stop the coming deluge, Noah risked everything to survive.
The story of Noah and his ark, but not quite the way you remember it from Sunday School.John of the Apocalyspe
“Why doesn’t God do something?” It was a question heavy on John’s mind. He had seen all his companions bleed and die; thousands of his compatriots had been slaughtered by a brutal tyranny. It seemed such an odd way for God to treat his most faithful servants. By 93 AD, John was just a lonely old man exiled for his beliefs on the island of Patmos. And then Jesus unexpectedly shows up with good news and an explanation.The Complaint of Jacob
If God loves us, then why is everything going wrong? Where is the abundant living we thought we were guaranteed? A low point in Jacob’s life offers a clue. The one true love of his life was dead. Joseph, his favorite, the oldest son of his beloved, had been gone for twenty-five years. Now Simeon had been taken from him and a tyrant in Egypt was demanding the last link he had to his dead wife. Beside himself with grief, he expresses his frustration in Genesis 42:36:
Their father Jacob said to them, “You have deprived me of my children. Joseph is no more and Simeon is no more, and now you want to take Benjamin. Everything is against me!”
Of what he could see of his circumstances, Jacob’s complaint seemed obviously true. And yet he couldn’t be more wrong. Joseph is not only not dead, he is second in command in Egypt. He is wealthy beyond imagining. Things could not, in fact, be better for Jacob. He just lacks the perspective of the readers of his story. So how does this apply to us? Perhaps our problem isn’t the hurricane of life; perhaps our problem is one of perspective. Many “self-help” books seem to argue that success in life, however one measures success, can be gained by a formula: a special prayer, eliminating hidden sin, or following a step by step action list. I suggest the Bible takes a completely different approach. The question is not, what can I do to change my circumstances? Instead, the question is, do I believe God? And what does that answer say about how we see our circumstances?
If the Devil were to write down his theology, what would he write? What exactly does the Devil believe about God, humanity, and sin? What motivates him? What drives his thoughts? He has a point of view. He has a philosophy of life. He has a theology.
So what is it? In what ways has his theology been influenced by, or perhaps influenced that of human beings?
Others have done the theology of John, the theology of Paul, or the theology of the Gospels. There are Old Testament theologies and New Testament Theologies. Here at last is the theology of Satan.
