Love is in the air, and I’m not even in Paris. I’m actually nowhere near any spot that’s a romantic getaway, but it is Valentine’s Day. February 14th, the day where we exchange cards, stuffed animals, and commemorate our loved ones. But most important of all is the candy, and the CHOCOLATES, right?!
I have recently dived into Karen Armstrong’s book, “The Battle for God,” in order to better objectively understand my religious roots. For those who don’t know, I was raised as a fundamentalist Christian, mainly in the Assemblies of God denomination. From what I can tell so far in her book, the thing that sets fundamentalists (of all/most religions, not just Christianity) apart is mistaking mythos for logos. I’ll admit, that kind of shocked me, but it makes sense. Before I go any further, it’s important that we understand just what logos and mythos are.
