Totemism (Vos Group #44)

March 31, 2018

by Lane Tipton

“Totemism is a form of superstition in which savage tribes and families derive their origin from some animal or plant or some inanimate object, to all the specimens of which they pay religious reverence, after which they name themselves, and which they abstain from killing and eating.” –Geerhardus Vos

In this episode of Vos Group, Dr. Tipton continues through Vos’s Biblical Theology: Old and New Testaments, applying Vos’s critique against totemism to all forms of modernism. This discussion covers pages 174–175.
