Show Notes

In this episode, Christopher and Riley explore revelation. What is revelation? Who can receive it? Is it something only prophets can receive? Can we? Is revelation infallible if prophets receive it? How about if we do? Has it ceased or is it continuing? If it has ceased, how do we know we’re interpreting it correctly? Wouldn’t that take revelation too, or does reason suffice? If revelation is continuing, can earlier revelation be abrogated by later revelation? Has this ever happened? If so, does that mean God has changed his mind, or could it mean he has changed our minds? What can we do to prepare our minds to receive revelation? What might prevent us from receiving it? Riley and Christopher do their best to problematize revelation by raising questions about it, to solve the problems by answering them, and to describe contemplative practices to prepare us to be open to receiving continuing revelation despite conservatism.
