School of Theology: Donald Miller 3

Session 1
Session 2

Genesis 1-3: Everything is explained. Consumerism. Keeping up with the Jone's. Name dropping. Fashion. Etc.

Introducing Enneagram personality types. I highly recommend poking around this website. This is fascinating stuff, and normally I loathe personality type theories.

Don is just talking a lot about everything you can find on the website.

Whichever type you are is exactly who you are not. What type you are is your mask, a result of your depraved state.

The Wisdom of the Enneagram.
The Enneagram: A Christian Perspective.

It predicts your motives and the way you perceive the world. It does not categorize you, because it is your mask. These are our fig leaves. This is our drug, our coping method.

The Breakfast Club is a "life boat" movie (Everyone fighting for their survival).

Jesus was none.


Everyone is unsettled because of the fall, and is looking to be settled again.

Buddhism is looking to be completely empty. They are on to something! All you need is the new life of Christ to replace your old self.

Climax: Christ, Reality, Success, Marriage, Death, Knowledge, Fame, Peace, Retirement?

Don argues:

Exposition: Setting
Inciting Incident: Fall
Conflict: Life (Hope/betrothed)
Climax: Wedding
Resolution: Life Eternal
