    However, the church which Christ built is right with God, and if any local church bearing his name abides in that gospel and in that doctrine, they too are right with God. The problem is more serious than that. The text is available online, and you can click here to open it in a new window. To whom else shall we go? Some countries banned the book, including South Africa.

    He had faults, like other men; but it was for his virtues that he was hated and successfully calumniated. While the essays at the beginning and the end of this collection are of that sort, the ones in the middle of the book offer much else besides. Like his essay on Thomas Paine, it is as passionate as it is determined and is one of the best of the book. Islam says man is weak and needs guidance: "God is He that created you of weakness, then He appointed after weakness strength, then after strength He appointed weakness and gray hairs; He creates what He will, and He is the All-knowing, the All-powerful" Surah John Bunyan, author of Pilgrim's Progress said: "Run, run the law commands, But gives me neither feet nor hands; Tis better news the gospel brings: It bids me fly; it gives me wings.

    He considers a number of logical arguments for the existence of God and goes into specifics about Christian theology. Whenever I look at other religions, I find them telling me what I ought to do, or ought to have done. The object of morals is not to make people happy. But I am no more refusing to believe in those gods and their religions as I refuse to believe in the Mormon, or Hindu gods and their religions. If your theology hangs on that gap then you are betting against everything science has solved so far.

Why I Am A Christian book

But, I want to explain why I need to be a Christian, and why you do too. So why should this requirement be different when it comes to the ancient pre-scientific superstitious past? There are a great many ways in which at the present moment the Church, by its insistence upon what it chooses to call morality, inflicts upon all sorts of people undeserved and unnecessary suffering.

They are worried about something much more mundane, or it may merely be a bad digestion; but nobody is really seriously rendered unhappy by the thought of something that is going to happen to this world millions of years hence.

Why I am a Christian

The injeel explains, "Sin entered into the world by one man and thereby passed to all men because all have sinned" Romans Jesus fulfilled that promise. Randal Rauser.

This unconditional love of God for the unlovable is evident throughout the Bible; for instance: "I have loved you with an everlasting love" Jeremiah ; but perhaps the greatest is the story of the Prodigal Son Luke 15 which Jesus tells to show that God is like a father.

It is not a pleasant fact, but the Churches compel one to mention facts that are not pleasant. There are a great many texts that prove that. Russell had been denied a professorship in New York for his political and secular views and his tolerance for gay and lesbian behaviour among students.

Furthermore, Islam fails to adequately account for the moral degradation, vileness, indescribable cruelty, inhumanity, wars and terrible crime that plagues our world. Nevertheless, though I have studied both faiths, and will continue to do so, I admit that I do not have all the answers.

The overwhelming majority of them will never read that book or one like it. It is a doctrine that put cruelty into the world and gave the world generations of cruel torture; and the Christ of the Gospels, if you could take Him as His chroniclers represent Him, would certainly have to be considered partly responsible for that.

But the incomparable moral beauty of Christ is most astounding again both mention this. In high school, I said it was because I accepted the atonement of Jesus Christ on the cross for my sins. Take one fact.

I do not know how rabbits would view that application. As Why I Am A Christian book come to modern times they become less respectable intellectually and more and more affected by a kind of moralising vagueness.

But it seems to excuse him: "Adam forgot" Surah ; and, "Adam disobeyed his Lord I cannot myself feel that either in the matter of wisdom or in the matter of virtue Christ stands quite as high as some other people known to history. The scientific hypothesis merely starts with an equilibrium of positive and negative energy along with the laws of physics.

He replied that she should get a hold of herself, turn over a new leaf, but he offered no external help. Those things are all important in their place.

In Paul Edwards preferred Russell over the then more trendy Ludwig Wittgenstein and published the essay and further texts referring to the background of The Bertrand Russell Case.

I was born and raised in a Christian home and came to personal faith when I was seven years old. If Scientology is true then it very likely does have warrant. They cannot guide us to the truth about historical events.

We ought to make the best we can of the world, and if it is not so good as we wish, after all it will still be better than what these others have made of it in all these ages. When Jesus promised to build his church, he meant that he was going to have his group Matt.

Pitt and Washington hated him because he was a democrat; Robespierre, because he opposed the execution of the King and the Reign of Terror. No one should ever reject the evidence for a conclusion simply because they dislike the conclusion. If anything, the religious context would help to discredit it, since miracle claims within religious contexts are a dime a dozen.

Why does a child have properly basic beliefs about God that an educated Christian adult would deny?Now in Why I Am a Christian he provides a compelling, persuasive case for considering the Christian faith.

If you take an honest look at Jesus, you will discover that following him gives you the purpose, identity and freedom you've been searching for - and far more than you have ever imagined.
