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." If a church ...

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 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 ...

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 ...
Early Christian perspectives of slavery were formed in the contexts of Christianitys roots in Judaism, and as part of the wider culture of the Roman Empire. Both the Old and New Testaments recognize that the institution of slavery existed. Saint Paul the Apostle in addressing slavery in Ephesians 6:-8[Eph. 6:5-8] neither condemns slavery nor condones it. Nothing in the passage affirms slavery as a naturally valid or divinely mandated institution. Rather, Pauls discussion of the duties of Christian slaves and the responsibilities of Christian masters transforms the institution, even if it falls short of calling for outright abolition. St. Augustine thought slavery was a result of sin, but was part of the fallen world and so should be tolerated. However, others opposed it: John Chrysostom explicitly argued that slavery itself was a sin, but he did not advocate for its abolition; Origen called for the practice of manumission after six years as found in the Old Testament; others, such as Gregory ...

MUMBAI: As two billion Christians prepare to celebrate the Christmas season, news broadcaster CNN offers a broad-ranging documentary on the tumultuous early years of Christianity - from the crucifixion of Jesus Christ to the conversion of Constantine, the Roman emperor who first legalised Christianity in 313 A.D.
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. ...
This study will comparatively research the influence that Christianity and mission activities have had on local societies in areas that have been leading objects of study for anthropologists, and what problems anthropologists have engendered as a result, comparatively examining specific examples from various regions. Since Christianization, Westernization and civilization have often been considered as more or less synonymous, they have had a decisive impact in many respects. Our final objectives will be to shed light on these present conditions and historical processes, as well as the anthropological significance of Christianity and the missions.. ...

Rob Knop @ 91:. Lets get the easy stuff out of the way first.. "I dont think that liberal Christianity has a monopoly on the "truth".". Is "truth"-with-magic-quotes different to truth-without-magic-quotes?. I agree that liberal Christianity doesnt have "a monopoly" on truth. That wont surprise you. But I would also say that atheism doesnt have "a monopoly" on truth. Because we are all fallible. I just think Im right; I dont claim to know for a fact that Im right. That just means Im prepared to defend an argument, it doesnt mean I think I have a monopoly on truth.. "I do think that liberal Christianity is objectively superior to fundamentalist Christianity, because fundamentalist Christianity holds tenents that are known to be false- the age of the Universe, evolution, etc. (Its also just bad theology to try to read the Bible literally, in my view- that is, its not just bad for scientific reasons.)".

The second issue here is that Christians seem to feel that atheists unfairly target them, above all other religions. Some Christians complain that were not anti-religious, objecting to irrational beliefs whatever their form, but that we seem to be gunning for Christianity and ignoring Islam, Hinduism, Wicca, Jainism, and so on. Perhaps its just the natural tunnel vision were all subject to falling into. Perhaps its that Christianity teaches a lot about how its practitioners have been persecuted. But take a step back and realize that English-speaking atheists seem to focus on Christians because that is who surrounds us! 85% of the U.S. self-identifies as Christian.

Is the clock ticking on Dutch Christianity?. Expatica comments on this statement of Jan Peter Balkenende, Dutch prime minister,: "I think you can no longer say that the Netherlands is still a Christian nation in the way we knew it to be in the past. But even if no one goes to church any more this doesnt mean you have washed away the Christian roots just like that. In that sense we remain a Christian land.". Expatica asks the very simple question the NRC did not ask: "What does Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende mean when he says the Netherlands will remain a Christian country even if everybody stops going to church?". ...
However I am not sure that I am wrong. I have over the years encountered quite a number of individuals whose Christianity amounts to little more than a form of death insurance. They believe just enough to get into heaven after they die. A good number of those have sought to reduce the scope of the Christian worldview to a bare minimum so as not to stand in contrast with the secularists that make so much noise in the world of science. Those neo-orthodox (it may not be true at all but at least it is true for me) often engage in the reductionism to keep the obvious contradictions from spilling from one camp to another. Thus they reduce Christianity to a belief in Virgin Birth, Atoning Death and Subsequent Resurrection which does almost nothing to help the individual believer nor does it help advance the Cause of Christ. Christianity is a complete worldview far surpassing any other worldview. That being the case why would I indulge other worldviews by suppressing the Truth of Christianity ...
Reflections of E. R. Normans Reith Lectures, Christianity and the World Order, this chapter is a further reflection on the way human action is significant in the building up of the heavenly kingdom. It identifies a number of home truths in Normans appraisal of Christian church peoples attitudes as unspiritual, politicized, and detached from truths of Christian faith; and a number of half-truths in his grasp of Christian teaching, especially about human nature, human goods and natural law, Catholic social teaching, divine commandments, and faith and works in this world and in eternity.

Stand to Reason trains Christians to think more clearly about their faith and to make an even-handed, incisive, yet gracious defense for classical Christianity and classical Christian values in the public square.
I take a third case; the strangest of all, because it involves the one real objection to the faith. The one real objection to the Christian religion is simply that it is one religion. The world is a big place, full of very different kinds of people. Christianity (it may reasonably be said) is one thing confined to one kind of people; it began in Palestine, it has practically stopped with Europe. I was duly impressed with this argument in my youth, and I was much drawn towards the doctrine often preached in Ethical Societies -- I mean the doctrine that there is one great unconscious church of all humanity rounded on the omnipresence of the human conscience. Creeds, it was said, divided men; but at least morals united them. The soul might seek the strangest and most remote lands and ages and still find essential ethical common sense. It might find Confucius under Eastern trees, and he would be writing "Thou shalt not steal." It might decipher the darkest hieroglyphic on the most primeval desert, ...

This course traces Eastern Christianity from the 2nd to the 16th century. A broad survey course aimed at undergraduates of all concentrations, there are no prerequisites; the course focuses on both Church history and theology. It begins with Constantines conversion and traces the growth of the church, the rise of monasticism, the creation of the creed (the Councils of Nicea and Chalcedon), and the secession of the Eastern churches (Coptic and Syriac), the role of religious pictures and the iconoclast dispute and relations with the West (Rome) which were frequently strained before the official break in the 11th century. We cover the conversion of the Slavs and the ventual formation of independent Slavic national churches. We treat the fall of the Byzantine and Medieval Slavic states to the Turks and the position of the Orthodox under the Turks. Attention is also given to the Russian Church from the 9th century to the Old Believer schism and Church reforms of Peter the Great. Readings are varied. ...

The changes seem to be most apparent in regards to: 1) While divorce is condemned throughout the Bible, now it seems politically incorrect to make a big deal out of it -- maybe its because it might offend some of the congregation; might make a few people who have left a husband or wife (for
Ebook `Primitive Christianity revived in the faith and practice of the people called Quakers. Written in testimony to the present dispensation of God through them to the world that prejudices may be`: ebooks list of William Penn
Last month, CJCUC published on its website, a groundbreaking statement on Christianity by Orthodox rabbis. Most reactions to the statement were positive and welcoming, yet some agenda-driven persons have distorted the meaning of our statement to advance their agenda.. Breaking Israel News has covered the controversy and allowed CJCUC officers to put the statement in perspective. The statement rests on the firm foundation of Halakhah (Orthodox Jewish law) and precedent. The statement was made by Orthodox scholars, all of whom are fully committed to obeying all norms, statutes, and principles of Halakhah. Jewish law prohibits "Eidut Sheker"-bearing false witness against another. It forbids maliciously imputing incorrect agendas as well as condemning others without first approaching each person honestly and asking, "What did you say and why did you do that"?. When the statement was released, Rabbi Riskin stated that "the real importance of this Orthodox statement is that it calls for fraternal ...

The most devastating thing that biology did to Christianity was the discovery of biological evolution. Now that we know that Adam and Eve never were real people the central myth of Christianity is destroyed. If there never was an Adam and Eve, there never was an original sin.

I think evolution absolutely is the death knell of Christianity." ("Atheism vs. Christianity," 1996, Lita Cosner, creation.com, June 13, 2013). Evolution is an abomination of desolation that conceptually unmakes and renders meaningless the Word of God, thereby opening the door to further abominations such as the Swedish lesbian bishop who wants to remove crosses from the church and mark the direction of Mecca to make it more inviting for Muslims (1). Then theres the abomination identified by Austin Ruse as the "gay mafia.". In "Kim ...

This is very understandable, After all the really discriminatory messages he has been sending about Seventh Day Adventists has caused Ben Carson and other Seventh Day Adventists to cast terror into the hearts non-Seventh Day Adventists and the world has become a little less safe because of it. The really discriminatory messages he has been sending about fundamentalist Christians of Cuban extraction may cause them to kill a few non-fundamentalist Christians, specially if ...
voxpopp: Common man, what point are you trying to make? 20th century Pentecostalism, Christian fundamentalism and Evangelicalism all evolved from protestantism but arent the same. I already pointed out that their similarities stems from the fact that they share the same divergent beliefs opposed to Roman Catholism. Modern day churches are mostly Pentecostals, Christian fundamentals and Evangelicals(not protestants). The protestants were more of a political movement during the period of the infamous inquisitions and persecutions by the Roman catholics and there relevance died down when the inquisitions stopped...(not without some form of bloody revolution anyway). After this revolution, modern day churches now sprang up from among liberated protestants. These includes the Pentecostals, Christian fundamentals, Evangelicals and other forms of christianity found nowadays like the seventh day adventists, jehovah witnesses just to mention a few ...
HB 305, "An Act relating to a mandatory exemption for certain residences owned by a religious organization," was filed by Rep. Berta Gardner (D-Anchorage) to undo legislation that Clary had successfully lobbied for in 2006, with the willing assistance of then-Sen. Ben Stevens (R-Anchorage), who wrote the legislation, and then-Sen.-Lyda Green (R-Wasilla), who sponsored it. The 2006 legislation had broadened state law on property tax exemptions for religious organizations to include church-owned housing occupied by religious school teachers and leaders of church ministries like music. It also broadened the definition of a minister to include anyone ordained "according to the standards of the religious organization" who was employed by that organization "to carry out a ministry" - essentially permitting religious organizations that were so inclined to ordain anyone they wanted to claim held a "ministry," and for church-owned housing occupied by that "minister" to be tax-exempt. The 2006 legislation ...
The thing I am here to say to you is this: that it is worse than useless for Christians to talk about the importance of Christian morality, unless they are prepared to take their stand upon the fundamentals of Christian theology. It is a lie to say that dogma does not matter; it matters enormously. It is fatal to let people suppose that Christianity is only a mode of feeling; it is vitally necessary to insist that it is first and foremost a rational explanation of the universe. It is hopeless to offer Christianity as a vaguely idealistic aspiration of a simple and consoling kind; it is, on the contrary, a hard, tough, exacting, and complex doctrine, steeped in a drastic and uncompromising realism. And it is fatal to imagine that everyone knows quite well what Christianity is and needs only a little encouragement to practice it. The brutal fact is that in this Christian country not one person in a hundred has the faintest notion what the Church teaches about God or man or society or the person of ...
In the first post of this series, "Religious Homophily: A Theory of Conservative Church Fragmentation," I presented sociological and psychological support for the notion that "conservative" Christian churches (principally, those whose congregations adhere to exclusive theological beliefs) fragment and divide because factions within the congregation eventually split over biblical interpretations. The research into conservative fragmentation was in response to Ken Howards article, "The Religion Singularity: A Demographic Crisis Destabilizing and Transforming Institutional Christianity," which demonstrates that church splitting is on a significant rise, even to the point of outpacing the growth of Christianity itself.[1] In the second post of the series, "Status of the Liberal Church: Fragmentation or Dissipation?," I explained that "liberal" Christianity suffers more from congregational dissipation than fragmentation. In other words, dwindling memberships occur more frequently in liberalism than ...
The Essentials Explained. Master storyteller and essayist C. S. Lewis here tackles the central questions of the Christian faith: Who was Jesus? What did he accomplish? What does it mean for me?. In these classic essays, which began as talks on the BBC during World War II, Lewis creatively and simply explains the basic tenets of Christianity. Taken from the core section of Mere Christianity, the selection in this gift edition provides an accessible way for more people to discover these timeless truths. For those looking to remind themselves of the things they hold true, or those looking for a snapshot of Christianity, this book is a wonderful introduction to the faith.. ...
If we cant use our priors, whose priors do we use? My claim is you have lots of people out there, from people who think Christianity very antecedently likely, to people who think the central events of Christianity might or might not have happened and are looking at the evidence to see if it did, to people who think Christianity is absurd and wouldnt believe if Jesus were to sit down across from them at lunch. The subjectivist theory of prior probabilities says that rather than find "correct" priors and argue from those, we simply have to use our own priors and adjust our confidence as we look at the evidence. How do we look at the evidence? We ask if the evidence, such as we have it, is more likely to be the way it is if the Christian story is true than if the Christian story is false. Now suppose I successfully show that the evidence that comes down to us from the first century is more likely to be the way it is if the Christian story were true than if the Christian story were false. Well, ...

This is how quickly it happened. One moment we were passing sumptuous kebob platters around the table making polite introductions, and the next we were swapping trauma stories that we-all people of color, many LGBTQ-had experienced in what were essentially white Christian spaces.*. There was the black nonprofit worker who attended a Christian conference in the rural Southeast, where she had to walk past white men staring her down from pickup trucks draped in confederate flags; there was the Indo-Latinx therapist who saw white Christians co-opt practices from other cultures, such as drumming or yoga, while erasing and demonizing the people they came from; and then there was me, the Chinese-American journalist who spoke at a Virginia Christian college where a white man verbally attacked and followed me prompting the provost to hide me in a secured room.. Among my dinner companions there was no need to explain the specter of racial violence and erasure lurking in our lives. Understanding came ...
So Im pessimistic on two counts. First, I dont believe that any liberal Christian movement will succeed in influencing politics: even if, per impossible, conservative Christians could be convinced that Jesus (who enjoyed his followers to leave their families and follow him) didnt support "family values" or that "Christianity is the religion of which socialism is the practice" it would make no difference. They would give up Christianity. Secondly, for all the brouhaha about religion and politics, debates about teaching evolution in the public schools (which should be about as controversial as teaching the quadratic formula) and the supposed rise of the "Religious" Right, Christianity as such is close to dead. Right or left, the majority of people who, according to the polls, say that religion is "important or very important in their lives" are interested in supporting "family values" or promoting social justice, acquiring skills for "successful living" or exploring "spirituality." And very few ...
Urgent concerns with the uniformity of belief and practice have characterized Christianity from the outset. The process of establishing orthodox Christianity was in full swing by middle to late first century when Paul wrote the epistles that comprise a large part of the New Testament. On many occasions in Pauls epistles, he defends his own apostleship, and urges Christians in various places to beware of false teachers, or of anything contrary to what was handed to them by him. The epistles of John and Jude also warn of false teachers, as does the writer of the Book of Revelation. During the first three centuries, Christianity was effectively outlawed by requirements to worship the Roman emperor and Roman gods. Consequently, when the Church labeled its enemies as heretics and cast them out of its congregations or severed ties with dissident churches, it remained without the power to persecute them. However, those called "heretics" were also called a number of other things (e.g. "fools," "wild ...
There are fears that new background checks could be used to make life difficult for Christians who work with children.. A new vetting system to be introduced next year will go beyond the current checks for criminal convictions to probe a persons personal beliefs and lifestyle.. Any anonymous claims made by the public or in newspaper articles could also be used against someone applying to work with vulnerable people or children.. Concerns have been raised that Christians could become the targets of smear campaigns aimed at causing them to fall foul of the new rules.. The Christian Institutes Mike Judge told The Daily Telegraph: "If people have an axe to grind with Christianity or Christians they could make malicious allegations against them.. "A lot of traditional Christian views are being regarded as beyond the pale.. "Its not beyond the stretch of imagination that because they have a particular view about sexual activity they will be deemed not suitable to work with children.. "In an ...
From Stephen Black: Andrew Comiskey gave a very timely message that serves as a prophetic warning to the Church. I believe this warning is especially needed for evangelicals that are more susceptible to the growing deception toward embracing "gay Christianity." Evangelicals are more likely than ever before to embrace the mixture of the cheap-grace messaging, adding the validation of same-sex sexual orientation and then pouring in a once prayed, always saved message. The outcome of this mixture has caused many to embrace "gay Christianity." Andrew Comiskey gives a warning as he shares his own story of how this "gay Christian" messaging infiltrated his own home through the "Spiritual Friendship" movement and Wesley Hills book with the so-called celibate gays, who are calling for the Church to embrace "gay Christianity" as a dangerously deceptive and corrupting option....

But is Christianitys role to support a culture, to serve communal rather than individual purposes, to set a cultures prohibitions, even to support family?". Yes, absolutely. Christianity aims to transform the whole society and remake it after the order of the triune God. The Apostle Paul explains the structure of the family after the model of the Eternal Father and Son and then after the model of Christ and the Church. Hear his words in the Letter to the Ephesians:. (Ephesians 3:15-17) from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith…. The family is indeed the target of the Christian order, because according to the New Testament, the family exists after the model of the Blessed Trinity. This is how we understand what kind of family "reaches the mark" and what kind of family "misses the mark." Christianity ...
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..

There can be no question but that Christianity was originally a Jewish promotion, and it is noteworthy that the Christians who try to make their cult respectable in the Third Century claim that they repudiate the Jews. One of the earliest to do this was Tertullian, a Carthaginian shyster, whose Apologeticum, a defense of Christianity, was written at the very beginning of the Third Century. He asserts that Christianity is not a conspiracy of revolutionaries and degenerates, as was commonly believed, and claims that it is an association of loving brothers who have preserved the faith that the Jews forsook - which has been the common story ever since. Our holy men salvage Tertullian by claiming that he was "orthodox" in his early writings, but then, alas! became a Montanist heretic, poor fellow. Tertullian is the author of the famous dictum that he believes the impossible because it is absurd (credo quia absurdum), so he is naturally dear to the heart of the pious. How much Jerome and other saints ...

Ellen Muehlberger explores the diverse and inventive ideas Christians held about angels in late antiquity, focusing especially on the fourth and fifth centuries. At that time, Christians were experimenting with new modes of piety, adopting long-standing forms of public authority to Christian leadership and advancing novel ways of cultivating both body and mind to further the progress of individual Christians. She argues that in practicing these new modes of piety, Christians developed new ways of thinking about angels. The first half of the book is a detailed exploration of the two most popular discourses about angels that developed in late antiquity: in one, developed by Christians cultivating certain kinds of ascetic practices, angels were one type of being among many in a shifting universe, and their primary purpose was to guard and to guide Christians; in the other, voiced by urban Christian leaders contesting with one another, angels were morally stable characters described in the emerging canon of
There are other versions of Satan turning against God by choice to make his character similar to that of Angra Mainyu. Many scholars judge this to be another example of Zoroastrian influence in Christianity.. Another seen influence is the Holy Spirit of God. In Zoroastrianism Ahura Mazda is believed to have invoked through the Holy Spirit, Spenta Mainyu, the six lesser divinities called the Amesha Spentas. The Holy Spirit especially in Christianity is to be God, notably in the Trinity this is referred to as the third person of God. Some authorities think the Holy Spirit was indicated in Genesis when God created Adam; he blew his breath into him. That breath was supposedly the Holy Spirit.. The Trinity in Christianity seems analogous to the heptad in Zoroastrianism. The heptad is composed of Ahura Mazda and the six lesser divinities whereas the Trinity consists of God, the Father; God, the Son; and God, the Holy Spirit. Similarly, Ahura Mazda, believed to be father of the Amesha Spentas, with the ...

At 10 I wanted to be an artist, practiced a hysterical form of Christianity, talked to trees, and turned a sunset at a local park into a visionary experience. My great-aunt lured me to Evangelical Christianity with the strangeness of Gospel stories where Jesus always ended up angry at his disciples failure to understand. I sympathized with being misunderstood, and latched on. Besides, Christianity was a forbidden fruit in Soviet Russia so I had to worship in secret. This was unnerving but also alluring. I was a breathless romantic who wanted to be surprised by a knight on a white horse. From the early 80s to the early 90s, my childhood was formed by the images, atmosphere, and allusiveness of Soviet songs. I grew up in an artistic family where emotions flew high. I was the kind of imaginative child who could spin an entire tale from an oblong stain on the kitchen table. But theres more to it than that. My family was not always idealistic or romantic, especially not in New York in the early ...
Dove-like satst brooding on the vast abyss." The tongues of flame were gleaming, but neither burning nor consuming; they appeared and disappeared like electric sparks or meteoric flashes. But these audible and visible signs were appropriate symbols of the purifying, enlightening, and quickening power of the Divine Spirit, and announced a new spiritual creation. The form of tongues referred to the glossolalia, and the apostolic eloquence as a gift of inspiration. "And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit." This is the real inward miracle, the main fact, the central idea of the Pentecostal narrative. To the apostles it was their baptism, confirmation, and ordination, all in one, for they received no other.264264 They were baptized with water by John; but Christian baptism was first administered by them on the day of Pentecost. Christ himself did not baptize, John 4:2. To them it was the great inspiration which enabled them hereafter to be authoritative teachers of the gospel by tongue and ...
Here are some highlights:. Andrew: "I dont believe that you can make a religion out of racial identity.". "Ethnos needs logos and logos needs ethnos… Religion has to be grounded in an ethne (people). Im in the middle between the Alt Right and Christianity. Traditional Christianity does offer a fusing of those two strands.". Luke: "The approach you elucidate is more socially acceptable. Not many professionals wants to identify as white nationalists but they can throw their energies into invigorating their local church.". Andrew: "And it offers a way of bringing back the working class… The working class are not fools. They know theyve been abandoned.". "Im not some snaggle-toothed redneck who wants to lynch all the niggers. I can get along perfectly happily with brown and black people in classes [at college].". "If you could get Christians to recognize that Jews are their enemy from a very basic theological point. Jews have no problem recognizing Christians as their enemy. This is the ...
You have likely heard that we should chew our food properly. There are many reasons why this is important. Chewing grinds the foods into small particles. The smaller the particle the more readily it can be coated with the digestive enzymes present in our saliva, which in turn start digestion. The mouth is lined with three pairs of salivary glands that release approximately one liter of saliva per day. Saliva is made up of 99% water. Additionally, it has multiple components that interact and aid in the digestion and absorption of our food. Digestive enzymes, mucus, electrolytes, and antimicrobial enzymes all have special roles in the digestion and absorption of our food.. Digestive enzymes begin the process of digestion of our food, especially carbohydrates. Mucus and electrolytes homogenize the food into a soft bundle and act as a lubricant, and the antimicrobial enzymes help keep bacterial, viral, and parasitic infections from entering our body. Chewing food also helps release the healthy ...
Tony Blair has warned UK Christians they live in an age of "aggressive secularism" and criticised recent "ludicrous decisions" which have seen them punished for expressing their beliefs.. In an interview with the Church of England newspaper the former Prime Minister said: "In general terms in British society there is a risk that people see faith as a personal eccentricity.". He has previously admitted that he avoided expressing his religious convictions while in office for fear of being branded a "nutter".. Mr Blair was invited to comment on the spate of recent cases involving public sector employees punished with disciplinary action and even dismissal for being open about their Christian faith.. An NHS nurse, Caroline Petrie, was suspended for offering to pray for a patient and a foster carer was struck off for allowing a Muslim girl to convert to Christianity.. A five-year-old girl was scolded at school for discussing her Christian beliefs. Her mother, Jennie Cain, works at the school and may ...

1. Luther first discusses the sacrament of the Holy Communion, and opposes three errors as a threefold bondage; namely, the withdrawal of the cup from the laity, the doctrine of transubstantiation, and the sacrifice of the mass. (a) As regards the withdrawal of the cup, he refutes the flimsy arguments of Alveld, and proves from the accounts of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and Paul, that the whole sacrament was intended for the laity as well as the clergy, according to the command, "Drink ye all of this." Each writer attaches the mark of universality to the cup, not to the bread, as if the Spirit foresaw the (Bohemian) schism. The blood of Christ was shed for all for the remission of sins. If the laymen have the thing, why should they be refused the sign which is much less than the thing itself? The Church has no more right to take away the cup from the laity than the bread. The Romanists are the heretics and schismatics in this case, and not the Bohemians and the Greeks who take their stand on the ...

Richard Swinburne wrote a book on the resurrection using Bayes Theorem, and concluded its "97% probable that God Incarnate in the person of Jesus was raised from the dead" given the existence of his god. Listen folks, this is typical delusional foolishness. Swinburne doesnt candidly say his god is his given, but thats indeed his given. Given the existence of his god he concludes its 97% probable "God Incarnate" in the person of Jesus was raised from the dead, because thats the only way someone can conclude "God Incarnate" was raised from the dead, by starting with the Christian god as a given. The specific given god cannot be a nebulous deity, or Allah or the Jewish Old Testament Yahweh, since non-Christian believers dont conclude "God Incarnate" arose from the dead. Even though they believe in god, they believe in a different god. [Thats why I say there is no such thing as theism, only theisms. No theist merely believes in an arbitrary set of agreed upon doctrines for discussion and ...

We do not yet know enough about the three terrorists who, saying "This is for Allah!", killed and wounded so many in London on June 4, but consider these two recent scenes:. Scene one: Manchester, United Kingdom, the "free world". A British-born Muslim terrorist prays in a former church. All around him, the Christian sites and congregations accepted being turned into Islamic sites. The day after, this terrorist goes on a rampage, murdering 22 concert-goers.. Scene two: Minya, Egypt, the "unfree world". An Islamist terror group stops a bus full of Christian pilgrims. The terrorists demand that their victims recite the Islamic creed, the shahaada. The Christians refuse to abandon Christianity and become Muslims. The Islamists murder them, one by one.. What do these scenes tell us? Christians resist Islam more in the Middle East than in Europe.. Salman Abedi, the British terrorist who massacred 22 innocent men, women and children at the Manchester Arena, could, every day, enter what was once a ...
But having said all that (and obviously it would take much more than a blog post or even 20 to sketch even minimally what the Christian faith entails cognitively with sufficient rigor), it is not the cognitive content of Christian belief that I believe Harry McCall doesnt get. Anyone with a modicum of education can spout off the Nicene creed, recite Bible verses by heart and give a decent summary of basic Christian beliefs. What I think agnostics and ex-believers perpetually misunderstand is the epistemology of religious belief, how conversion (and by implication deconversion) reorients your basic stance on the world. It is not just a matter of adding extra beliefs to an already existing personal worldview ("Flowers are beautiful and oh by the way God exists"). Accepting or rejecting theism changes the parameters of that worldview, usurps its fixed points and replaces them with new ones. This reorientation works retroactively as well, causing you to see your path toward it in a new light: ...

The Koran directly attacks Christianity.. The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Psalm 12:6. "For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven" (Psalm 119:89).. There is a move in the United States and the entire Western world to block anything from being said negatively against Islam. Exposing Islam and its doctrines that are contrary to Western culture is called Hate Speech. In both Europe and Canada , Christians have been heavily fined and threatened with jail for speaking negatively about Islam.. Telling the truth accurately means nothing, as it is classified as hate speech. There are forces working in the United States to also promote that speaking against Islam is hate speech. Islam is being packaged and sold to the West as a peaceful religion.. Based on this concept of speaking out about Islam being hate speech, an examination of the Koran shows this book itself is hate speech, specifically, against Christianity. The Bible was ...
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or LDS Church, is the largest denomination in the broader "Latter-day Saint (or Mormon) movement," a restorationist Christian movement that sprang from the prophetic claims of Joseph Smith (1805-44) and coincided with the Second Great Awakening in the United States. Today, the movement includes the LDS Church, the Community of Christ, and a number of other smaller groups. Like many other restorationist groups, the Latter-day Saints believed that existing Christianity had strayed so far from Jesus teachings that they required a complete renewal rather than simple reform. While many restorationist movements (like the Stone-Campbell movement or the Puritans) were content to model as closely as possible the religion of the New Testament, Joseph Smith taught that the Bible itself had been corrupted.. Joseph Smith organized his church (originally called the Church of Christ) in 1830 in upstate New York, where he had been experiencing divine ...
Rising tension between Christians and Muslims in the Arab world have come out in the open with the expulsion of foreign Christian charity workers from Jordan and the conviction of a Catholic priest in Algeria. Although the cases seem different, the background is similar. Evangelical Christians have been increasingly active in the Islamic world, doing charity and development work and also seeking to convert Muslims. The missionary part is usually a crime in Islamic countries and local authorities - rightly or wrongly - often suspect the charity part is a cover for this proselytism. This sets the stage for clashes over religious freedom, national laws, Christianity, Islam and modernity - an increasingly frequent mix in a globalised world. It also has serious effects on the long-established but fragile Christian communities living in those Muslim countries.. In Jordan, Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh said this week that Christians had come to Jordan under the "pretext of charitable and voluntary ...
Meta-reviews, large scale analyses of suicide risk have helped shed some evidence on the connection between religion and suicide.. Lawrence, Oquendo & Stanley (2016) noted that suicide and religion are both complex dimensions (e.g. suicide ideation versus attempts versus death, religious affiliation versus attendance.) Being part of a majority religious community was found to be a greater protective factor against suicide than a minority community, but that attending religious services was not as important as having social supports (whether religious or not.).
