Default Interesting article.

From John Caputo’s book, What Would Jesus Deconstruct, “Meister Eckhart, said God is unnameable and therefore omninameable, and so He prays, I pray God to rid me of God. I pray (the unnameable) God to rid me of (the idol I have named) God.”

He goes on to say, “Orthodoxy is idolatry if it means holding “correct opinions about God” – “fundamentalism” is the most extreme and salient example of such idolatry, but not if it means holding faith in the right way, that is, not holding it at all but being held by God, in love and service.”
