    Persecution in the Second Century (Part 4) -- Marcus Aurelius

    in Religion

    The History of Christianity #28


    Our Scripture passage today is Matthew 5:12 which reads: "Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you."


    Our quote today is from Tertullian. He said: "Only without the sword can the Christian wage war: the Lord has abolished the sword."


    Today, we are discussing "Persecution in the Second Century" (Part 4) from Dr. Justo L. Gonzalez's fine book, The Story of Christianity (Volume 1).


    Today's subject is Persecution Under Marcus Aurelius


    Marcus Aurelius, who became emperor in 161 AD, possessed one of the most enlightened minds of his age. He was not, like Nero and perhaps Domitian, enamored with power and vainglory. On the contrary, he was a refined man who left behind a collection of Meditations, written for his private use, which are literary masterpieces of the time. He expresses some of the ideals with which he tried to rule his vast empire:


    Think constantly, both as a Roman and as a man, to do the task before you with perfect and simple dignity, and with kindness, freedom, and justice. Try to forget everything else. And you will be able to do so if you undertake every action in your life as if it were the last, leaving aside all negligence and the opposition of passion to the dictates of reason, and leaving aside also all hypocrisy, egotism, and rebelliousness against your own lot.


    Under such an emperor, it could be expected that Christians would enjoy a period of relative peace. And yet, the same emperor who expressed such lofty ideals regarding government also ordered that Christians be persecuted....

    MARCUS AURELIUS CONTINUED: MEMBERSHIP IN THE COMMONWEALTH

    in Education

    We continue discussing Marcus Aurelius' Meditations, focusing on the relationship between the individual, rational being and the Commonwealth or "World City".   This week we will be approaching the topic from the lens of self-interest.   How does Marcus Aurelius' view of a Commonwealth of rational beings connect with notions of self-interest?  Further, how do Marcus Aurelius' exhortations to rid ourselves of anger and promote tolerance and patience connect with one's self-interest?  These are some of the questions on which we will focus for this week's episode of EthicsTalk.

    Marcus Mariota's unfortunate Dennis Dixon comp

    in Sports

    Mind of Mansion Podcast Episode 116: Matt Kelley @fantasy_mansion laments NFL draft analysts' propensity for comparing every prospect to his best case NFL counterpart.


    Odell Beckham and Calvin Johnson are unreplicatable genetic anomalies at the WR position.


    Tampa Bay is the Avalon of QB prospect destinations. 


    It's pronounced MAR-ey-oh-tah. Like far out, man.


    In dynasty leagues, Jameis Winston has more certainty and long-term viability than Marcus Mariota.


    Russell Wilson was not a running quarterback at Wisconsin.


    Marcus Mariota is a smaller than Kapernick with better touch. 


    A player's most prolific season receives the most weight, because it represents the production that a player is capable of. 


    Oregon's spread package offense is like Techno Bowl with 4 total play choices out of the same formation. 


    Dennis Dixon represents Marcus Mariota's true prospect projection floor.


    Mariota's actual NFL throws at the college level were so few and far between that experts have no idea what he will do at the NFL level.


    Similar to Johnny Manziel, Marcus Mariota is a known unknown who requires a massive leap of faith in order to draft with a top pick.

    Marcus Aurelius: Reason and Human Fellowship

    in Education

    In his Meditations, Marcus Aurelius repeatedly affirms that human beings are both reasonable and social.  And in Book X, Verse 2, he appears to identify a deep connection between aspects of human nature when he claims “what is reasonable is consequently also social”.   In this show, we will explore the meaning of this connection.  What is the nature of relationship between the reasonable and the social?  Do human beings possess the natural capacity for reason to serve the social?  Or are human beings social so that their rational natures can be developed?  Or perhaps the reasonable and the social are inter-entailing and ‘co-dependent’ in some way.  The objective of the show is to gain a better understand Marcus Aurelius’ view of the relationship between the ‘reasonable’ and ‘social’ aspects of human nature and how this facet of Marcus Aurelius’ philosophy connects with his metaphysical views about the nature of the universe and the ‘human commonwealth’
