Decreased seroprevalence for Toxoplasma gondii in Seventh Day Adventists in Maryland. (1/193)

Despite its widespread prevalence, uncertainties remain about the relative contribution of various routes of transmission to the overall rate of infection with Toxoplasma gondii, particularly in developed countries. To explore the hypothesis that meat consumption is an important risk factor for infection, a cross-sectional seroprevalence study was performed on healthy adults in one region in the state of Maryland. The population included Seventh Day Adventists who as a group follow a diet containing no meat, and control community volunteers who were not Seventh Day Adventists. Thirty-one percent of the population had serologic evidence of T. gondii infection. People with T. gondii infection were older (49 versus 42 years old; P < 0.01, by t-test) and less likely to be Seventh Day Adventists (24% versus 50%; P < 0.01, by chi-square test) than people without T. gondii infection. When adjustments were made for age and gender through multiple logistic regression, Seventh Day Adventists had a significantly decreased risk of T. gondii infection (odds ratio = 0.21, 95% confidence interval = 0.09-0.46, P = 0.0001) compared with the controls. While the basis for this effect remains to be determined, one possible protective factor is the general adherence of Seventh Day Adventists to a diet that does not contain meat.  (+info)

The costs of hospital services: a case study of Evangelical Lutheran Church hospitals in Tanzania. (2/193)

The health care systems of many developing countries are facing a severe crisis. Problems of financing services leads to high patient fees which make institutions of Western health care unaffordable for the majority of the rural poor. The conflict between sustainability and affordability of the official health care system challenges both local decision-makers and health management consultants. Decisions must be made soon so that the existing health care systems can survive. However, these decisions must be based on sound data, especially on the costs of health care services. The existing accounting systems of most hospitals in developing countries do not provide decision-makers with these data. Costs are generally underestimated. The leadership of the 16 hospitals of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanzania is currently analyzing how the existing health care services should be restructured. Therefore, reliable estimates of the costs of hospitals services are required. A survey on 'Costing of health services of the Evang. Luth. Church in Tanzania' was prepared, which summarizes the results of seven months of field investigations in Lutheran hospitals. The major findings are that the costs of providing adequate services are much higher than expected. The most important factors determining these costs are the administrative efficiency of the hospital and the scope of services offered. The paper closes with some recommendations on how to improve the services in order to make them both affordable for the rural poor and financially sustainable for the Church. It is concluded that even the best improvement of technical efficiency will not safeguard the survival of the hospital-based health care services of the Lutheran Church in Tanzania. These findings call for a reallocation of health care resources to lower levels of the health care pyramid.  (+info)

Suicide, religion, and socioeconomic conditions. An ecological study in 26 countries, 1990. (3/193)

STUDY OBJECTIVE: Relative risks are frequently assumed to be stable across populations but this may not apply in psychiatric epidemiology where sociocultural context may modify them. Such ecological effect modification will give curved associations between aggregated risk factor and outcome. This was examined in connection with the ecological association between suicide rates and an aggregate index of religiosity. DESIGN: Ecological study of associations between suicide rates and an index of religiosity, adjusted for socioeconomic variation. The effect of stratification of the study sample according to levels of religiosity, was examined. SETTING: 26 European and American countries. SUBJECTS: Interview data from 37,688 people aggregated by country. OUTCOME MEASURES: Age and sex specific (1986-1990) suicide rates. MAIN RESULT: Adjusted for socioeconomic variation, negative associations of male suicide rates with religiosity were apparent in the 13 least religious countries only (test for interaction F (1, 25) = 5.6; p = 0.026). Associations between religiosity and female suicide rates did not vary across countries. CONCLUSION: The bent ecological association was apparent only after adjustment for socioeconomic variation suggesting that, rather than confounding, ecological modification of individual level links between religion and male (but not female) suicide risk is the responsible mechanism. This concurs with micro-level findings suggesting that suicide acceptance depends not only on personal but also on contextual levels of religious belief, and that men are more sensitive to this phenomenon than women. In psychiatric epidemiology, relative risks vary with the exposure's prevalence. This has important implications for research and prevention.  (+info)

Identification of a mutation cluster in mevalonate kinase deficiency, including a new mutation in a patient of Mennonite ancestry. (4/193)

Mevalonate kinase (MKase) deficiency (MKD) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder in the pathway of cholesterol and nonsterol isoprenoid biosynthesis. Thus far, two disease-causing missense alleles have been identified, N301T and A334T. We report four additional mutations associated with MKD: L264F, T243I, L265P, and I268T, the last found in a patient of Mennonite ancestry. Electrophoretic analysis of bacterially expressed wild-type and mutant MKase indicated that I268T and T243I mutants produced normal or somewhat reduced amounts of MKase protein; conversely, L264F and L265P mutations resulted in considerably decreased, or absent, MKase protein. Immunoblot analysis of MKase from all patients suggested that the MKase polypeptide was grossly intact and produced in amounts comparable to control levels. Three mutations resulted in significantly diminished MKase enzyme activity (<2%), whereas the I268T allele yielded approximately 20% residual enzyme activity. Our results should allow more-accurate identification of carriers and indicate a mutation "cluster" within amino acids 240-270 of the mature MKase polypeptide.  (+info)

Nut consumption, vegetarian diets, ischemic heart disease risk, and all-cause mortality: evidence from epidemiologic studies. (5/193)

Perhaps one of the most unexpected and novel findings in nutritional epidemiology in the past 5 y has been that nut consumption seems to protect against ischemic heart disease (IHD). Frequency and quantity of nut consumption have been documented to be higher in vegetarian than in nonvegetarian populations. Nuts also constitute an important part of other plant-based diets, such as Mediterranean and Asian diets. In a large, prospective epidemiologic study of Seventh-day Adventists in California, we found that frequency of nut consumption had a substantial and highly significant inverse association with risk of myocardial infarction and death from IHD. The Iowa Women's Health Study also documented an association between nut consumption and decreased risk of IHD. The protective effect of nuts on IHD has been found in men and women and in the elderly. Importantly, nuts have similar associations in both vegetarians and nonvegetarians. The protective effect of nut consumption on IHD is not offset by increased mortality from other causes. Moreover, frequency of nut consumption has been found to be inversely related to all-cause mortality in several population groups such as whites, blacks, and the elderly. Thus, nut consumption may not only offer protection against IHD, but also increase longevity.  (+info)

Associations between diet and cancer, ischemic heart disease, and all-cause mortality in non-Hispanic white California Seventh-day Adventists. (6/193)

Results associating diet with chronic disease in a cohort of 34192 California Seventh-day Adventists are summarized. Most Seventh-day Adventists do not smoke cigarettes or drink alcohol, and there is a wide range of dietary exposures within the population. About 50% of those studied ate meat products <1 time/wk or not at all, and vegetarians consumed more tomatoes, legumes, nuts, and fruit, but less coffee, doughnuts, and eggs than did nonvegetarians. Multivariate analyses showed significant associations between beef consumption and fatal ischemic heart disease (IHD) in men [relative risk (RR) = 2.31 for subjects who ate beef > or =3 times/wk compared with vegetarians], significant protective associations between nut consumption and fatal and nonfatal IHD in both sexes (RR approximately 0.5 for subjects who ate nuts > or =5 times/wk compared with those who ate nuts <1 time/wk), and reduced risk of IHD in subjects preferring whole-grain to white bread. The lifetime risk of IHD was reduced by approximately 31% in those who consumed nuts frequently and by 37% in male vegetarians compared with nonvegetarians. Cancers of the colon and prostate were significantly more likely in nonvegetarians (RR of 1.88 and 1.54, respectively), and frequent beef consumers also had higher risk of bladder cancer. Intake of legumes was negatively associated with risk of colon cancer in nonvegetarians and risk of pancreatic cancer. Higher consumption of all fruit or dried fruit was associated with lower risks of lung, prostate, and pancreatic cancers. Cross-sectional data suggest vegetarian Seventh-day Adventists have lower risks of diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and arthritis than nonvegetarians. Thus, among Seventh-day Adventists, vegetarians are healthier than nonvegetarians but this cannot be ascribed only to the absence of meat.  (+info)

Cyanocobalamin (vitamin B-12) status in Seventh-day Adventist ministers in Australia. (7/193)

As part of the Adventist Ministers' Health Study, a series of cross-sectional surveys conducted in 1992, 1994, and 1997, the serum vitamin B-12 status of 340 Australian Seventh-day Adventist ministers was assessed in 1997. The ministers in the study participated voluntarily. Of this group, 245 were either lactoovovegetarians or vegans who were not taking vitamin B-12 supplements. Their mean vitamin B-12 concentration was 199 pmol/L (range: 58-538 pmol/L), 53% of whom had values below the reference range for the method used (171-850 pmol/L) and 73% of whom had values <221 pmol/L, the lower limit recommended by Herbert. Dual-isotope Schillings test results in 36 lactoovovegetarians with abnormally low vitamin B-12 concentrations indicated that dietary deficiency was the cause in 70% of cases. Data from the dietary questionnaires supported dietary deficiency as the cause of low serum vitamin B-12 in this population of lactoovovegetarians and vegans, 56 (23%) of whom consumed sufficient servings of vitamin B-12-containing foods to obtain the minimum daily maintenance allowance of the vitamin (1 microg).  (+info)

Graffiti - visual memory of Croatian history. (8/193)

Throughout the Middle Ages a unique Croatian Glagolitic script co-existed with Latin and western Cyrillic scripts, thus creating an open, large, and tolerant cultural environment. Many works common to European cultural heritage were translated into Croatian (Church Slavonic) language and preserved in the Glagolitic script. Among the oldest preserved Glagolitic monuments carved in stone are the so-called tables from Baska on the island Krk and Valun (11th-12th century) containing not only many names and church dedications but also valuable historical data. For centuries this script also provided a vehicle of transferring and preserving medical knowledge.  (+info)

When I talk about American Christianity, I am referring specifically to a brand of Christianity that has wholly adopted the postmodern, hedonistic, individualistic, relativistic, pluralistic mindset that comprises a very magnanimous portion of American philosophy. In other words, American Christianity is not Christianity in any sense of the word. American Christianity is a godless philosophical system immersed in idolatry. It is postmodern in the sense that truth is what the individual decides it is regardless of the facts. It is hedonistic in the sense that it aims to engender as much pleasure as the individual determines is satisfactory. It is individualistic in the sense that believers do not submit to their church leaders or the Christian group in any true sense whatever. The individual decides who their leader will be and as long as that leader operates within the individuals own self-determined parameters, they are extended the privilege to remain in the position of leader.

We must commit ourselves, heart and mind, soul and will, personally and unreservedly, to Jesus Christ. We must humble ourselves before him. We must trust him as our Savior and submit to him as our Lord; and then go on to take our place as loyal members of the church and responsible citizens in the community. This is basic Christianity, the theme of this book. With these words, world-renowned preacher John Stott embarks on a compelling study that first defends the basic claims of Christianity and then defines the proper outworkings of those main beliefs in the daily lives of believers. Here is a sound, sensible guide for all who are seeking an intellectually satisfying presentation of the Christian faith. Named one of the Top 100 Books of the Millennium by World magazine and listed among Christianity Todays Top 100 Books of the 20th Century, Basic Christianity has had huge impact on countless readers worldwide over the past fifty years. This special new edition continues the Stott legacy. Basic

The history of Christianity in Korea is generally considered to start in the 17th century - much later than Confucianism or Buddhism - yet today, there are more believers of the Christian faith than any other organized religion in Korea. The history of the introduction of Christianity to Korea is unique in that it was initiated by Korean scholars who took an academic interest in Christianity as a teaching of Western civilization, rather than by Christian missionaries proselytizing in Korea. After the Qing invasions (1636-7), Joseon bureaucrats who had been sent to Qing China began to take interest in Western civilization and started to import and academically study Catholic literature from China. Though at first they were critical of the teachings, some Joseon scholars began to believe in the faith and established local Christian organizations.

You cant expect non believers to just start believing in Christianity, we have been exposed to science for too long to put the cat back in the bag. We know the rather goes round the sun, that evolution is an accepted fact by those who understand the process. So our exposure to the scientific method has made unbelievers out of many. We cant just change, because Muslims believe in their faith. Thats their problem and hopefully being in Europe they too will abandon their religion.

The summer of 1914 was marked by the inception of a fresh stage in the revolution to which we have repeatedly called attention and which began at least as far back as the Renaissance. During the half-century between 1914, and the time when these lines were penned, it continued to mount with increasing rapidity. We must first outline the main features of that stage of the revolution, next describe, also succinctly, the fashion in which it threatened Christianity, both by open attack and by less open but subtle and more dangerous erosion, and then call attention to how the challenge was faced -- with the result of a greater impact of Christianity upon mankind as a whole than at any earlier time.. The Main Features of the Revolution. The feature of the augmented revolution to be mentioned first is that, as in its earlier stages, it originated in and radiated from what was formerly called Christendom -- Europe, and especially Western Europe, where Christianity had longest had its best opportunity to ...

The ascendancy of Evangelicalism in the US, particularly in its more socially conservative forms, challenged many people in mainline churches. Recently, a focus for those who wish to challenge this ascendancy has been provided by Jim Wallis of Sojourners, who described himself as a progressive evangelical Christian, although Sojourners has rejected advertisements urging mainline churches to welcome gay members.[7] This has enabled many Christians who are uncomfortable with conservative evangelicalism to identify themselves explicitly as Progressive Christians. At the onset of this new movement to organize Progressive Christians, the single largest force holding together was a webring, The Progressive Christian Bloggers Network, and supporters frequently find and contact each other through dozens of online chat-rooms.[citation needed] Notable initiatives within the movement for progressive Christianity include The Center for Progressive Christianity (TCPC) in Cambridge, MA, The Beatitudes ...
According to Orthodox tradition, Christianity was first preached in Georgia by the Apostles Simon and Andrew in the 1st century. It became the state religion of Kartli (Iberia) in 319.[2][3] The conversion of Kartli to Christianity is credited to a Greek lady called St. Nino of Cappadocia. The Georgian Orthodox Church, originally part of the Church of Antioch, gained its autocephaly and developed its doctrinal specificity progressively between the 5th and 10th centuries. The Bible was also translated into Georgian in the 5th century, as the Georgian alphabet was developed for that purpose. As was true elsewhere, the Christian church in Georgia was crucial to the development of a written language, and most of the earliest written works were religious texts. The Georgians new faith, which replaced pagan beliefs and Zoroastrianism, was to place them permanently on the front line of conflict between the Islamic and Christian worlds. Georgians remained mostly Christian despite repeated invasions by ...

Authentic Christianity does not ignore doctrine and truth for the sake of community and family. It does not abandon the truth of the gospel, replacing it with an appeal to the desires of the individual, even if those desires are not necessarily sinful per se. Nor does authentic Christianity leave its wounded unattended. A family does not send its members off into the wild blue, never to check on them again. A family does not willfully, knowingly, ignore one of its members when it knows that the member is in pain. The family finds a way to love, to support, and to reach out. But more than this, a family is there to help reduce the chances that one of us may actually find ourselves in the proverbial Lions Den in the first place. The church community should know itself inside and out. We should take deliberate steps to know and understand each other. But we dont. Instead, we leave the parking lot with a critical spirit, judging each other without even knowing each other. We dont like the way one ...

Modern Christianity as experienced by converts tends to be incomplete - precisely because modern Christianity has nothing to build on. This means that modern incomplete Christianity lacks explanatory power, seems to have little or nothing to say about what seem to be the main problems of living. For example, modern Christianity seems to have nothing to do with politics, law, art, philosophy or science; to inhabit a tiny, shrinking realm cut-off from daily concerns. Modern Christianity often deletes miracles; original sin; the virgin birth, the incarnation and dual nature of Christ; Christs death, resurrection and atonement; the Holy Trinity; angels, demons and unseen spiritual warfare and so on - yet without these and other elements, Christianity does not really hang-together nor does it satisfy human yearning. ...
When I wrote on Wednesday about the scandalous concreteness of Christianity, I didn’t tell the half of it.

But I did not emphasize this nearly as much as I could have done. The tangible realities—the

Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove grew up in the Bible Belt in the American South as a faithful church-going Christian. But he gradually came to realize that the gospel his Christianity proclaimed was not good news for everybody. The same Christianity that sang, Amazing grace, how sweet the sound also perpetuated racial injustice and white supremacy in the name of Jesus. His Christianity, he discovered, was the religion of the slaveholder.. Just as Reconstruction after the Civil War worked to repair a desperately broken society, our compromised Christianity requires a spiritual reconstruction that undoes the injustices of the past. Wilson-Hartgrove traces his journey from the religion of the slaveholder to the Christianity of Christ. Reconstructing the gospel requires facing the pain of the past and present, from racial blindness to systemic abuses of power. Grappling seriously with troubling history and theology, Wilson-Hartgrove recovers the subversiveness of the gospel that sustained the church ...

Brian Stiller: The church began in 33 AD in Jerusalem (Acts 2:1-47), after Jesus ascended and the Holy Spirit came upon the disciples. Peter preached and over 3,000 came to faith that day. Describe the spread of Christianity from its humble roots. Brian Stiller: Persecution sent many of the disciples outside of Judea, into neighboring areas, then into the wider world. For example, the Apostle Paul went into what is now Turkey and established churches, in time moving into Greece and Italy and surrounding countries. Luke, the historian, describes how the gospel was launched into the Roman world in Acts 10:1-47.. Where is Christianity declining or growing currently? Brian Stiller: The Christian message and presence has gone through a low period, especially in Europe, over the past few decades; although there are now signs even in Europe, of ...

Nevertheless, despite its contemporary skew All is Change is still illuminating as a guide to the literature of Eurasias cultural development after the rise of the world religions. Though not an expert himself, Suttin does a good job of offering bite-sized summaries of the current state of scholarship in regards to questions about the possible influence of Buddhism upon Christianity, and Christianity upon Buddhism. The reality seems to be that the exact answer to most of these questions are not extractable from the morass of human history, the possibility remains that features of Buddhism such as monasticism might have played a role in serving as an indirect template for early Christianity. Or, inversely, that Nestorian Christianity, or religions influenced by this eastern variant of Christianity such as Manichaeanism, may have played a role in the genesis of Pure Land Buddhism, whose evangelical flavor and theistic bent have long been observed by Westerners as at least superficially ...
New research in the USA shows that Jehovahs Witnesses who refuse blood transfusions recover from heart surgery faster and with fewer complications than those who have transfusions.. Patients who are Jehovahs Witnesses had better survival rates, shorter hospital stays, fewer additional operations for bleeding and spent fewer days in the intensive care unit than those who received blood trans-fusions during surgery, a study in the Archives of Internal Medicine shows.. Jehovahs Witnesses undergo extensive blood conservation before surgery, including red blood-cell boosting erythropoietin drugs, iron and B-complex vitamins to guard against anaemia. The practice offered a unique natural experiment for scientists to study the short and long-term effects of the blood management strategy and may point to ways to reduce need for transfusions, researchers said.. The study included 322 Jehovahs Witness patients and 87,453 other patients who underwent heart surgery at the Cleveland Clinic from 1983 to ...

Pakistan: A 16-year-old Muslim boy who converted to Christianity was abducted in Peshawar by Taliban-linked Islamic militants and his fate may already be marked, as he is considered guilty of apostasy. As one Pakistani pastor explained, If a young Muslim converts to Christianity in Pakistan, he is forced to live in hiding. Every Muslim might feel compelled to kill him. The change of religion is not punished by the civil law, it is punishable by Islamic law. For this reason cases of Muslim conversion to Christianity are very rare and some convert in secret. Muhammad Kamran, a Muslim convert to Christianity, exemplifies the pastors words. After he told his wife of his conversion, she abused and exposed him, resulting in his being severely beaten by local Muslims. In his words: No one was willing to let me live the life I wanted [as a Christian]-they say Islam is not a religion of compulsion, but no one has been able to tell me why Muslims who dont find satisfaction in the religion [such ...
Reviewed by Silke Sitzler, Australian Catholic University ([email protected]) [Authors and titles are listed at the end of the review.] Wealth and Poverty in Early Church and Society is a collection of works originally presented at a conference on Wealth and Poverty in Early Christianity held in 2005. The first book in the series Holy Cross Studies in Patristic Theology and History, it offers a broad collection of papers predominantly discussing early Christian responses to poverty and wealth across the Roman world. Divided into five sections, the volume presents eighteen essays grouped under the titles: The New Testament Period; Egypt in Late Antiquity; John Chrysostom, the Cappadocians, and Friends; Wealth, Trade, and Profit in Early Byzantium; and Patristic Studies for Today. These sectional groupings provide a useful and cohesive way to absorb the wide ranging research presented in the volume. The approaches taken to the topic of wealth, poverty and early Christianity are ...
Listing of the answers to the question: Why Christianity insist on demonizing Lucifer to become a demon within their mythology? Lucifer is the sun god, in ancient Rome, depicting every morning Lucifer will bring torch to light the sky and at night he would leave. Christian mythology insist on taking Lucifer, into their story and write him into a creation of the Christian god Yahweh, who rebel and fail and got cast into hell. Why do you think that is the case. Could there be a political motivation, in trying to convince people the god of the sun, is created by Yahweh and a demon that rebel against Yahweh and failed?

For many years J.D. Greear looked like the model Christian. In high school, he avoided rock music, dancing, and movies because he thought they would make him worldly. In college he learned that international missions was important, and went to 25 countries in 10 years to serve God and the poorest of the poor with his time and resources. And as a pastor he leads a large, growing church. But somewhere along the way, he actually began to hate God. His thoughts were filled with negative emotions, like jealousy and anger, and he saw God as demanding more and more, and never satisfied. Greear finally realized he had never allowed the truth of the Gospel to impact his heart.Gospel: Recovering the Power that Made Christianity Revolutionary is Greears manifesto to the world and the church exploring the beauty and power of grace-filled living. Greear also shares what he calls The Gospel Prayer a powerful way to saturate oneself daily with the core truths of the Gospel. Learn how to lay down your desire for a
In this study of the ritual of animal sacrifice in ancient Greek religion, Judaism, and Christianity in the period between 100 BC and AD 200, Maria-Zoe Petropoulou explores the attitudes of early Christians towards the realities of sacrifice in the Greek East and in the Jerusalem Temple (up to AD 70).
Shamanism predates religion so obviously it is non-Christian. There are, however, several shamanic references in the bible; indeed certain shamanic precepts have been incorporated into all religions. The shaman is a technician of the sacred - the original priest - and the shamanic world is the foundation for the revealed religions. I believe a Christian may learn about shamanism without consequence but a shaman can not learn about Christianity without losing something holy.. ...

Why did John Wesley leave the halls of academia at Oxford to become a Church of England missionary in the newly established colony of Georgia? Was his ministry in America a success or a failure? These questions-which have engaged numerous biographers of Wesley-have often been approached from the vantage point of later developments in Methodism. This book addresses Wesleys Georgia mission in fresh perspective by interpreting it in its immediate context. In order to re-evaluate this period of Wesleys life, careful consideration is given to his writings and those of his contemporaries. The central argument of this study is that the Georgia mission, for Wesley, was a laboratory for implementing his views of primitive Christianity. The ideal of restoring the doctrine, discipline, and practice of the early church in the pristine Georgia wilderness was the prime motivating factor in Wesleys decision to embark for Georgia and in his clerical practice in the colony. Understanding the centrality of primitive

Dr. Osamu Muramoto, MD - AJWRB Medical Adviser. In 2001, Dr. Muramoto used a study by Kitchens CS: Are transfusions overrated? Surgical outcome of Jehovahs Witnesses. It was published in the February 1993 issue of The American Journal of Medicine on pages 117-119. The study was based on 1404 bloodless surgeries performed on Jehovahs Witnesses, and showed that 1.4% of these patients died to a lack of blood as either a primary or contributing cause of their death. Simply stated, this means that every time a JW had bloodless surgery their chance of death was 1.4% greater due to refusing blood.In an abundance of caution, Dr. Muramoto elected to round down this figure to 1% to allow for some who may have died anyway, so stated another way he determined that for every one hundred bloodless operations on Jehovahs Witnesses, one death could be attributed to blood refusal.. At that time the American Association of Blood Banks reported that approximately 4 million patients received blood ...

The article by Sniecinski et al. (1) on the treatment of two Jehovahs Witnesses with coagulopathy presents a laudable approach toward improved communication with patients who may offer a rather unique medical challenge. Three aspects of this paper merit comment.. First, the paper highlights how far we have come in the past few decades in the treatment of Jehovahs Witnesses. Notice, for example, that the postoperative hematocrit in these two patients were 23% and 20% respectively, and that both patients had good outcomes. Actually, this is not unusual in the reports on patients who are Jehovahs Witnesses. Yet, it was not that long ago that some physicians generally applied the 10/30 rule as a transfusion trigger. We have learned much about alternatives for treating anemia and now coagulopathy, as this paper shows.. Second, the authors commendably capture the issue here that the decision on whether to receive these processed blood fractions was up to the two patients. This is not, though, ...
Since the High Middle Ages, most of Europe has been dominated by Christianity. There are three major denominations: Roman Catholic, Protestant and Eastern Orthodox, with Protestantism restricted mostly to Northern Europe, and Orthodoxy to East and South Slavic regions, Romania, Moldova, Greece, and Georgia. The Armenian Apostolic Church, part of the Oriental Church, is also in Europe - another branch of Christianity (worlds oldest National Church). Catholicism, while typically centered in Western Europe, also has a very significant following in Central Europe (especially among the Germanic, Western Slavic and Hungarian peoples/regions) as well as in Ireland (with some in Great Britain). Christianity has been the dominant religion shaping European culture for at least the last 1700 years.[60][61][62][63][64] Modern philosophical thought has very much been influenced by Christian philosophers such as St Thomas Aquinas and Erasmus. And throughout most of its history, Europe has been nearly ...
Most people in ancient times would not have been troubled over the consuming of blood, as we can see from the writings of Tertullian (second and third centuries C.E.). Responding to false charges that Christians consumed blood, Tertullian mentioned tribes that sealed treaties by tasting blood. He also noted that when a show is given in the arena, [some] with greedy thirst have caught the fresh blood of the guilty . . . as a cure for their epilepsy. Those practices (even if some Romans did them for health reasons) were wrong for Christians: We do not include even animals blood in our natural diet, wrote Tertullian. The Romans used food containing blood as a test of the integrity of real Christians. Tertullian added: Now, I ask you, what sort of a thing is it, that when you are confident [that Christians] will turn with horror from animals blood, you should suppose them greedy for human blood? Today, few people would think that the laws of Almighty God are at issue if a physician suggested ...
The official position of most Christians is that homosexual sin is a sin like any other--including heterosexual sin--and their actions towards homosexuals in the majority of cases reflect that belief. Virtually no Christians are out campaigning to keep homosexuals out of their congregations. Virtually no Christians are proposing ballot initiatives to make public displays of homosexual affection illegal. Virtually no Christians are advocating, either implicitly or explicitly, hatred of homosexuals. Virtually no Christians believe homosexuality is a worse sin than any sexual sin, or act as if it is. Virtually no Christians encourage or commit violence against homosexuals. All Christians believe that God loves sinners--even if he hates sin--and thus believe that they are called to love sinners (and thus homosexuals). The vast majority of Christians dont need to undergo any intense reflection or repentance on this topic because the vast majority of Christians already have it right. Which is not to ...
That is Montgomerys first indication that not only is far more than Christianity actively practiced in the archipelagos, the alternatives are real and still wield great power. Virtually everywhere he visits, numerous aspects of prior polytheistic beliefs and traditions are alive and well. Just as the predominant language of the islands is a polyglot of English and French with Melanesian grammar and syntax, spiritual and religious practices are a unique mix. The Melanesians blend Christianity, magic, curses, ghosts, mana (an invisible force that animates life, objects, people and actions), and kastom (traditional religion, ritual and magic).. To the islanders, kastom is as important as Christian doctrine, if not more so. The Melanesians appear to invoke whatever seems best suited to them or their current needs. Montgomery notes, the strangest bits of [Melanesian] culture were those that had been infected by Christianity, because they produced a hybridization of myths, magic, and spirit. ...
I think the Abstract is a little balled-up. It says:. The article examines aspects of Daoism in the Western countries and the role of Buddhism and Christianity as religious models. It mentions the effect of Christian principles which include the acceptance of the wisdom of the Bible while discarding old Daoists theories about how the world operates. It also examines changes on how Daoists operate which influenced by technological innovations like social networking and Western infrastructure.. it might be more accurate if it said the following:. The article examines aspects of Buddhism and Christianity as religious theory and how that affects the organizational structure of their religious communities. Specifically, it discusses the relationship between Christian authority and scientific truth, and, the basis of Buddhist ecclesiastic authority and personal autonomy. It suggests that religious Daoists learn from the previous mistakes of both Christian and Buddhist communities, and develop a ...
Theres No Common Cultural Legacy For The Alt-Right. Still, is there something to it? Is there a common heritage that will cover El Greco and Hume and Dostoyevsky? Is there one that can include the Jacobites and the Jacobins? There is, but it is not racial, and white supremacists reject it because it rejects them. The unifying heritage of Europe is religious and philosophical. It is Jerusalem and Athens, in one famous formulation. Christian religion and Greek philosophy, filtered through Roman law and culture, are the foundation of European culture. The tensions, agreements, developments and settlements between these have shaped the Western world, and these roots of Western civilization are not congenial to white supremacy.. Christianity is universal in its message and Jewish in its origins. For centuries after its founding, Christianitys center was the Mediterranean world, including Asia Minor and North Africa. Christianity has never been defined by race, and locally-grown racist heresies are ...
