It is not a first person term of self-characterization. For instance, the claim that early Christians rejected scientific findings by the Greco-Romans is false, since the "handmaiden" view of secular studies was seen to shed light on theology. A six year study of 3,851 elderly persons revealed that those who reported having rarely to never participating in private religious activity had an increased relative hazard of dying over those who participated more frequently in religious activity.

I help as many people as I can free of charge, by drafting a model first paragraph on their behalf. A strong commitment to excellence in undergraduate teaching at a private, multicultural, non-sectarian research university should accompany solid scholarly potential and an ability to interact with and contribute to disciplines outside religious studies (e.g., political science, international studies, and modern languages and literatures).

Candidates should be familiar with the theology of their chosen religion, its lore, scripture, as well as be able to defend it, also known as apologetics. We believe in the incarnation of the Spirit in US, and that all PEOPLE are incarnations of the One Spirit. To make matters worse, the field faces critics from within: well-meaning but destabilizing attempts by religion scholars to rethink and reinvent the whole enterprise from the ground up, even to the point of unsettling its foundations. (Timothy Fitzgerald’s The Ideology of Religious Studies and Russell McCutcheon’s The Discipline of Religion come to mind.) These are important exercises, but they exact a cost.

It is not an illustration of an idea already explicitly spelled out, but a suggestive invitation to the discovery of further similarities. There are responses (for example, that on this account there would have to be a universe generator which was itself fine-tuned (Collins 1999), or that even if it is likely that some universe be fine-tuned, nevertheless the likelihood that this universe be fine-tuned is unaffected by the pluriverse suggestion (White 2003)) and responses to the responses, and so on; not surprisingly, there is no consensus as to whether these fine-tuning arguments are successful.

Candidates must be supportive of Loyola's Catholic and Jesuit mission. I'm not sure what their plans are for interviews. The Religious Studies Program at OU provides undergraduate students with a broad curriculum of study on the diverse expressions of religion. Since nearly every society has some form of theological belief system, the options are exhaustive. Research findings suggest that a person for whom both conservative ideology and conventional, institution-based religion are functional is a person with a “weak ego” or “severe superego,” who is threatened by external circumstances or internal impulse and therefore likely to be responsive to the unambiguous external controls, structures, and supports provided either by a religious institution and its ideology, rituals, and moralisms or by the strict categorizing and self-enhancement provided by ethnocentric doctrines.
