Letters from the DMZ is an attempt to provide a venue for free (local) discussion of issues related to culture, politics, and philosophy. The DMZ is a layman’s debate society in the Detroit area designed to foster thought and free discussion in a culture where that is becoming increasingly impossible. A demilitarized zone is an area where treaties and agreements are made and military personnel are restricted. The DMZ is a space to discuss contemporary issues but it is no safe space. This is a space to risk being offended, challenged, and given opportunity to use reason, logic, and evidence to support your views and if not successful, challenged to alter them.

Islam and the Fall of Man

The Quran includes a version of the story of the fall of Adam (Surah 7). Adam and Eve sinned but they asked Allah for forgiveness. He punished them with a mortal life on earth until the resurrection. Since they were forgiven, we can be forgiven. Islam teaches that man is born in a state of submission to God and through submission to God, he can be righteous. His failings can be forgiven. Martin Luther describes this type of theology as a theology of glory.
