#Renewalist ▶ #SocialCurrentSee

WHO▶ Is Tanya Luhrmann and WHY is her story archived here on LeaveTheWord?

The biographical answer is found in this web search, but an amplified answer requires a view of the linked TEDx video. A Stanford University professor and psychological anthropologist best known for her studies of modern-day spiritualism, charismatic Christians, and psychiatrists. She is Watkins University Professor in the Anthropology Department at Stanford University. ~ post compiled and archived by CANSWERIST for SocialCurrentSee

LeaveTheWord aka ▶ Vision♥Worth ▶ News, clips, tweets and content about courage, life, faith, hope, purpose, and devotion ▶Today's tweets are tomorrow's posts ... “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change” ▶ http://leavethewordhttp://canswerist.com

WHAT▶ Is notable about this archive is that Prof. Luhrmann is documented in the video and her book with an account of “joining” and researching an evangelical group (a church) to analyze their beliefs and practices?

(1) She makes no claims to actually converting to the Christian faith that she studied for research purposes; (2) She seems to attest to the real connections with God (not imagined) to which this faith community had witnessed in her presence; (3) Also archived here is a review of the Luhrmann book, When God Talks Back: Understanding the American Evangelical Relationship with God, a clinical but insightful view of the faith community to which the author was transplanted without transformation, (I think?) But, search for yourself in this bingo, bango, bongo or just BING.
Please understand that this blogger is not against religious or spiritual research, but it is important to understand the history and philosophy (bias) of the researcher.

WHEN▶ CANSWERIST approached this aggregation, we were simply exploring the current content of the well-known instructional site TEDx?

Like you, we knew nothing about Prof. Luhrmann and her work. But now, we find that reading her observations and writings gives one a distinct “outside/inside” view of evangelicals within a belief system in which she is largely a stranger and alien, as are probably most of her colleagues, students, visitors, and readers. While the Luhrmann research is enlightening to the academic and the secularist, it is clear that the source is only caught up in the anthropology of evangelicals, not the personal source of their faith.  She gives no evidence of how she understands the idea of God's grace and salvation for His children, even an understanding that we all owe our very lives to the providence of the one true God, His son, Jesus Christ, and the presence of the Holy Spirit!

 LeaveTheWord is about the common interests of @altaloman in the socialcurrentsee of faith, hope, religion, and spirituality.

WHERE▶ does “renewalist Christianity” come from, as in the research by Tanya Luhrmann?

“One of the major findings of a 2006 survey of Hispanics and religion was the strong influence of Pentecostalism and other spirit-filled forms of Christianity. These lively, highly personal faiths emphasize the spiritually renewing “gifts of the Holy Spirit,” such as speaking in tongues, divine healing and direct revelations from God. Together, these religious traditions are sometimes referred to as the renewalist branch of Christianity,” according to PewResearchCenter.

WHY▶ Would a secularist professor go to such links to provide revelations about evangelicals? 

That question might not be answered after reading this archive and connecting to the supporting sources, so I will leave the evaluation up to readers.

▶Is LeaveTheWord on Flipboard? Because that aggregation site is the emerging leader in aggregation publishing, a platform that is proving most effective in bringing together the world of web content management and broadcasting.

HOW▶ Do evangelicals stand today in the religious community? For the answer see bingo, bango, bongo or just BING

Is LeaveTheWord a so-called common interest development? Typically, as we know, the CID initials stand for common interest developments, most commonly ascribed to homeowner associations, aka HOAs. But the "common interest" consideration means that many unrelated topics and issues are located within that domain. The LeaveTheWord subjects are archived with that reality in mind.
