THTM is Theological Telemetry

What is telemetry? OED defines it as

the process of recording and transmitting the readings of an instrument.

Our ‘instrument’ is critical analysis of culture, art, life, politics, and the Christian Church and its transmission is through the written word.


History

Theological Telemetry began as one of Keanu Heydari‘s blog projects. After having a conversation with fellow UCLA student, Kalyce Rogers, the two decided to transform the pitiable collection of Keanu’s thoughts into a hub of conversation produced by and for young Christians. The two sensed a profound lack of meaningful literature produced by this demographic, and decided to embark on this project.


“Christian”

We recognize that there is considerable diversity of thought regarding what it means to be a Christian; therefore, our definition of Christianity is framed around three core principles: Confession, Scripture, and Christ.

Confession

All of our writers are asked to subscribe to the Apostles’ Creed in its entirety, without exception.

Scripture

All of our writers are asked to agree with the following question/answer as found in the Westminster Shorter Catechism:

2. What rule hath God given to direct us how we may glorify and enjoy him?
A. The Word of God, which is contained in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, is the only rule to direct us how we may glorify and enjoy him.

Christ

Really the intersection of Confession and Scripture, our writers are asked to believe that Jesus Christ is who he said he was, e.g. in John 14:6 (ESV):

 “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
