"The consciousness of good intentions disdains ambiguity. I shall not, however, multiply professions on this head. My motives must remain in the depository of my own breast. My arguments will be open to all, and may be judged of by all. They shall at least be offered in a spirit which will not disgrace the cause of truth."
-'Publius' The Federalist No. 1
In the introductory description, Hewitt explains the fundamental purpose behind his rationale for putting together this venue,
The first question should be: Why? The answer is because theology matters. A lot. I have asked these five excellent minds to ponder occasional questions from a layman that the layman thinks would be of interest to many more layman. I have discovered after 15 years in broadcast journalism that such questions and the answers they elicit are of great interest to the general public. How to Read This Blog You should read this blog more like a discussion board than a traditional blog. The questions are listed below, and over in the Categories section under "Hugh's Questions." Each question is its own category, with the responses listed in the order they were posted, like a discussion board.
Hugh Hewitt is running a fascinating new blog called OneTrueGodBlog. I ran into the site while doing some research, after seeing the movie The Exorcism of Emily Rose. Bookmark this blog/discussion board if you are interested in a serious Christian theological discussion among some highly qualified individuals. Hugh asks the questions and the contributors respond with individual posts similar to permalinked blog posts. As these matters should play a central role in our lives, this will be a blog of interest that I will frequent in the future. Take note, yourself, as I will be looking forward to the read here, so should you.
The approach taken by Hewitt is quite simply outstanding. Particularly, his instructions for us all to approach the commentary as a "discussion board" in reading proves to be a very challenging instruction. This instruction mandates that we approach the issues and topics presented with an open mind, and with a mind ready to articulate our own individual beliefs. The discussion currently piquing my interest is the 'Demons' post, which is a subject many of us ignore on a daily basis. However, as the discussion demonstrates, this topic is something we all should all think about. If this is illustrative of what we can expect in the future, your humble pundit joins my fellow bloggers in anxiously awaiting what is to come.
