“‘Spiral dynamics’ is a psychological model intended to decipher these broad patterns of behaviors and motivations. The model categorizes these patterns into stages, beginning from the least complex stage where biological drives determine wholly the content of consciousness, to the most complex, where biological drives have nearly vanished due to the prominence of concepts and the effects of socialization.”

If we take Jesus seriously as the representation of God’s purposes, embodying love, how does that fact square with all these other, less savory, portraits of God in the Bible?”
