Blurb/Shorttext:
Theology, like culture, is dynamic and therefore ought to be examined concurrently with social movement as it takes place. At the same time, because theology like culture is dynamic, campaigns for social justice that provide theological reasons for its mobilizing message will articulate a relevant language to stimulate a community and direct a mindset for social change. Paul Tillich’s Method of Correlation aims to connect the questions produced through the analysis of modern culture with the answers provided by the symbols used in the Christian message. This method is applied to an examination of theological reasoning behind the Right to Life social movement (RTLM) to exhibit how pro-life language has an inherent connection to Tillich’s articulation of symbols and to show how this movement has shaped the political and religious nature of the modern United States. This premise aims to contribute a new dimension to the evaluation of the pro-life argument, and demonstrate that in viewing social activism through a Tillichian lens we see the necessity for evaluating theology and culture in tandem.
