Relational Holiness: Core and Contributing Notions By Thomas Oord and Michael Lodahl

Thomas Jay Oord
Michael Lodahl

The classical terms of holiness – “Christian Perfection,” “Entire Sanctification,” “The Second Blessing,”
and “Baptism of the Holy Spirit” – no longer seize the imaginations of many people. Evidence of this
is found chiefly in the fact that Christian leaders both inside and outside the holiness tradition rarely
use these terms today. Lay people use them even less. Perhaps we in the holiness tradition are
becoming like the Myanmar pygmies.

Posmodernismo - Qué es eso? (Trans. Edgar Baldeon)

Thomas Jay Oord

Uno podría pensar que la pregunta en el título de este ensayo, “Postmodernismo - ¿Qué es eso?” sería facil de contestar. Después de todo, una gran cantidad de materiales se ha ofrecido (tanto para público académico como general) bajo la etiqueta de “postmoderno”. Actualmente, sin embargo, contestar a la pregunta, “¿qué es el postmodernismo?” es un asunto difícil. La razón principal para esta dificultad es que algunos conceptos que vuelan bajo la bandera del postmodernismo se oponen o contradicen a otros conceptos bajo el mismo lema.
