Highlights from the Annual Retreat 2018
With over 220 students and alumni from more than 20 colleges in attendance, this year's retreat was by far our largest yet!Augustine Collective | Augustine Collective News | January 19-20, 2018
What is Justice?
If Jesus’ loving death on the cross becomes the Christian archetype of justice, our vision has more in common with Socrates’ than with Thrasymachus’ or Cephalus’.Luke Foster | The Yale Logos | Spring 2016
Love: the Life of Justice
Justice, then, goes beyond laws and bears on every aspect of our interactions with other people in ways that few other virtues can.Armando Ghinaglia | The Yale Logos | Spring 2016
God’s Justice: A Shifting Standard?
If Noah and Abraham were just before God because they were sinless, it would theoretically be possible for any human being at any point in history to be just in the same way.Dinnie Ee | The Yale Logos | Spring 2016
Forgiveness: Unjust and Illogical?
How, then, do we address the seeming injustice in forgiveness? Is forgiveness inherently a legitimization of wrong?Tori Campbell | The Yale Logos | Spring 2016
I see a nation inundated with injustice, yet a Church that is silent.Nia Campinha-Bacote | The Yale Logos | Spring 2016
Wealth in the Church
Does a capitalist society create paradigms that are contrary to Christ’s message? Interview with Yale history and religion professor Carlos Eire.The Yale Logos | The Yale Logos | Fall 2015
Jesus and the Problem of Myth
In particular, the idea of a righteous man/god who is sacrificed in order to atone for the transgressions of a nation is present in many cultures.Max Graham | The Yale Logos | Fall 2015
Augustine Collective Journals in the New York Times
Several member journals of the Augustine Collective were mentioned in a January 16, 2016 New York Times op-ed on evangelical students on secular campuses.Augustine Collective | Augustine Collective |
The Cosmic Import of Marriage
The Bible is bookended by weddings.Markus Boesl | The Yale Logos | Fall 2013
Jesus: The End of Personal Autonomy and Identity?
Indeed, it appears that at its best, Christianity has severely restrictive, and often arbitrary, rules that limit one’s ability to do as one wants.Matthew Johnson | The Yale Logos |
What is a “Christian” Social Ethics?
The communal nature of Jesus’ life and work must be considered when attempting to define the Christian character of a social ethic.Daniel Bell | The Yale Logos | Winter 2012
We accept Paul’s claim that the love of money is the root of all evil, but we know that that verse does not entail us to shun money itself as an evil. Money, at the end of the day, is also part of His Creation, and all things were created for His glory.Richard Lee and April Koh | The Yale Logos | Winter 2012
The Idolatry of Wealth and Reevaluation of Treasure
Christians are called to be good stewards rather than owners of their material blessings, multiplying them in accordance to their ability. A lively faith requires the investment of both material goods and ability for the benefit of God.Katelyn Chan | The Yale Logos | Winter 2012
Christianity and Capitalism: Counterparts of Freedom
Though Christianity has a moral framework and capitalism a utilitarian one, their mutual respect of individual choice and autonomy makes them reconcilable on a more fundamental level.Mark Diplacido | The Yale Logos | Winter 2012
Faith and Fiction
The relationship between fiction and faith has had its difficult moments. The Index Librorum Prohibitorum was abolished by the Catholic Church only fifty years ago, and there were even recent stories of pastors burning Harry Potter books when the series started skyrocketing in popularity. Clearly the people instituting banned books lists and instigating book burnings believe in the capacity for fiction to corrupt. Curiously, in denouncing fiction’s potentially degrading influence, they are also acknowledging its power.Stephen Kim | The Yale Logos | Winter 2011
The Four Walls of Our Freedom: Organized Religion and the Happy Life
Why accept an organized religion: don’t you want to think for yourself and come to your own conclusions?Eduardo Andino | Yale Logos |
