Religious offense means any action which offends religious sensibilities and arouses serious negative emotions in people with strong belief and which is usually associated with an orthodox response to, or correction of, sin. At the turn of the 20th . . At the turn of the 20th century the French sociologist Émile Durkheim considered the dichotomy between the sacred and the profane to be the central characteristic of religion. There is also a dichotomy between religious communities and advocates of multiculturalism.

I responded with a smile . While these assumptions about me are simply wrong, I cannot blame them for having such associations with Christianity.

I responded with a smile, saying, That’s wonderful that he’s turning to science. We Christians don’t have to choose one over the other. Not coincidentally, this is a newer member of our congregation. It seems that it is always the more conservative and extreme versions of Christianity that make the news and loom largest in popular consciousness.

The audience responded by applauding. I have read books on the subject, and some that may agree with the current happenings. Over the next few hours Roy sat silently while he listened to more speakers, all of whom thanked the Judaits for their help. Some made more remarks about the rapture to keep everyone amused. But you don’t believe in the rapture, do you? It’s not exactly orthodox Catholicism.

Christians believe in justification by faith - that through their belief in Jesus as the Son of God, and in his death and . The New Testament records that Jesus taught his disciples how to pray and that he encouraged them to address God as Father. Christians believe that they continue this tradition.

Christians believe in justification by faith - that through their belief in Jesus as the Son of God, and in his death and resurrection, they can have a right relationship with God whose forgiveness was made once and for all through the death of Jesus Christ. Christians believe in the Trinity - that is, in God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Sometimes the prayers are formal and part of a ritual laid down for hundreds of years. Others are personal and spontaneous, and come from personal or group need.

This is the second copy of this book that I purchase. Dan Story has done a great work in describing worldviews and devising a system for their evaluation as to the truths of their contents. This makes it simpler to compare one worldview to another as to truths knowing that truth is that that corresponds to reality or what is real. I bought this copy as a gift to a fellow christian believer who is eager to learn the basic principles of apologetics or defense of the christian faith.

An excellent overview of the call to understand that Christianity is defensible. Not real easy reading but not so academic you cant get it. I wish it had a study guide.

I had difficulty with this book because it seems to me be written from a battle perspective with battle or attacking language. Other religious worldviews are characterized with "babbling false prophets", "self-appointed gurus", and "fanciful philosophical writings" p. 102. Story speaks of how Christians have had to "defend their faith against fradulent religions." p. 103. Eastern religions philosophy has been "infiltrating the United States." p. 104. "a few observations will sound the death knell of both Eastern pantheism and its New Age counterpart." p. 111. "Panthiests may pawn this inane philosophy ..." p. 113. "products of mindless evolution." p. 123 "scientific claims that attempt to thwart the Christian worldview." About the naturalistic world view the author states, "this attitude is narrow-minded, prejudiced and designed to preclude any source of truth that does not pass through naturalism's anti-supernatural grid." p. 133. "Christian worldview is under attack" p. 135. "We have become like mindless lemmings, like stupid rodents following a satanic Pied Piper." p. 152. "It is always open season on Christians." p. 19.
Sweeping statement are made and not backed up to my satisfaction, "There exist universal 'first principles ... which govern how all peole in every culture throughout all of history reason." p. 23. "We have a strength from outside ourselves that helps us endure our sufferings. No other religion in the world offers this." p. 99. "reality as universally understood and lived out" p. 133.
Story assumes that Christians have the same view on issues such as abortion, evolution, homosexuality. Views on these issues are not critical or central to a Christian belief as I understand it. This book seemed to me more a fearful tirade than a thoughtfully reasoned apologetic.

It is well said that we ought not to judge a book by its cover, maybe size is a better word here. But the author has done an extremely successful job of putting across the arguments for Christianity as rational, objective, rational, livable, and believable. If nonbelievers are put off by heavy-duty books on Christian evidences, then they will not go wrong in getting hold of this book. But be forewarned, this book will get you upset over what you are believing about your worldviews! I got mine in Australia while on holiday. Can't seem to find it in Singapore though. Anyone has any ideas of bringing in a load of it to Singapore?
