 Insight on the News: Inculcating a Passion for Truth and Learning - Christendom College President Timothy O'Donnell - ...
Christendom College President Timothy O'Donnell is committed to educating students with authentic grounding in the great Western intellectual tradition.
It is that at tiny Christendom, amid all the other things undergrads are prone to do, from drinking beer to daydreaming on a grand scale, students are very likely to be found talking passionately -- and to care deeply about -- what they learn from their college's traditional curriculum.
Insight: Christendom College is a Roman Catholic institution, and one of the "givens" of the modern secular world is that education should be a "liberation" from religion and its demands, a learning to "think freely."

 The Chronicle: 3/29/2002: A New Christendom
In describing the rising neo-orthodox world, I have spoken of a "new Christendom." The phrase evokes a medieval European age of faith, one of passionate spirituality and a pervasive Christian culture.
The last Christendom, in the Middle Ages, was anything but an unmixed blessing for either church or society.
Critically, Christendom was defined in terms of what it was not, since the Christian world existed in unhappy conjunction with neighboring Muslim states.

Christendom believes in a fiery purgatory or in a hell of eternal torment of human souls after death, and will the heathen get less painful torture from Christendom's purgatory and hell than from their own heathenish purgatory or hell?
Not Christendom, but Christianity is "the light of the world." Christendom with her United Nations organization is the "light that failed" and has no future beyond the battle of Armageddon.

 Christendom Has Betrayed God and the Bible - Jehovah's Witnesses Official Web Site
Christendom has had the Bible for centuries, and its clergy claim to teach it and to be God's representatives.
Thus, by what they have taught and what they have done, the religions of Christendom have demonstrated that their claim of believing in the Bible and of being God-fearing and Christian is a lie.
However, the failure of the clergy and churches of Christendom, as well as the failure of other religions outside Christendom, does not mean the failure of the Bible.

If, then, we limit the application of the term Christendom to this, its most authentic expression, the unity of Christendom is not a lost ideal to be recovered, but a stupendous reality which has always been in stable possession.
The next great schism which divided Christendom was that which is known as the Photian schism, and led to the separatist existence of that vast body of Christians which has come to be called "the orthodox Church".
The fourth great breach in the union of Christendom was that caused by the Protestant Reformation of the sixteenth century.

 Christendom and Counterfeit Christianity by Soren Kierkegaard   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Christendom is a society of people who call themselves Christians because they occupy themselves with obtaining information about those who a long time ago submitted themselves to Christ’s examination – spiritlessly forgetting that they themselves are up for examination.
Thus Christendom has become the very opposite of what Christianity is. Christianity is restlessness, the restlessness of the eternal.
Christendom is a tricky boy who pretends he does not understand what God meant but thinks that since it is a great joy the task must be to enjoy life thoroughly.

The third of Dr. Warren H. Carroll's fully documented history of Christendom presents the glory of the High Middle Ages, the age of united and triumphant Christendom: the flowering of Christian civilization which produced saints and heroes, Popes, kings and queens, phiosophers, and architects whose achievements glow like beacons across the centuries.
This fourth volume is primarily concerned with the split in Christendom created by the Protestant revolt of Martin Luther an dhis followers.

This lack of definition allows Christendom to be set up as a “straw man” that is easily demolished, despite never really existing in the form described for any length of time.
A caricature of Christendom might be popular with people who look back on history through sentimental eyes, or those who prefer to remain a minority on the fringes of life, but it does not provide much guidance to those who are struggling to live in the modern world.
If we focused the debate on particular issues, rather than using the vague expression Christendom, speakers on all sides of the debate would be clearer about what we are saying and why it is being said.

The New Christendom will be a modem expression of Christian social principles, which are based on Divine Revelation and expressed in the Catholic Church's social teaching.
A totalitarian system is organized idolatry of the State; the State becomes the be-all and end-all of human existence, and determines the criteria of good and evil to benefit itself.
In the New Christendom, Almighty God is the Be-All and End-All of human existence.

 The SF Site Featured Review: Christendom
Christendom is one of those science fiction novels that only says Fiction on the back.
Sometimes this is a sign that the author has no knowledge of the genre or that they believe in the old "its too good to be sci-fi" cliché (Paul Theroux and P.D. James are two notorious culprits).
Christendom is remarkably well written book and an impressive progression.

 Amazon.com: Books: The Next Christendom: The Coming of Global Christianity   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Given that population and religious enthusiasm is waning in the northern hemisphere, and just the opposite is going on in the southern one, Jenkins predicts that Christianity's center of gravity will migrate to Africa and Central and South America in the immediate decades ahead.
He helps us to work through the implications of this even as he persuades us that the hegemony of Euro-American Christianity is a thing of the past and that-unless we pay attention-we who are part of it are likely to be, as the old song says, the last to know.
Jenkins, professor of History and Religious Studies at Penn State, has thoroughly researched the current trends of the church worldwide, unlike most contemporary church literature, which tends to focus only on the U.S. His conclusions are filled with hope for a growing church, but challenging for the northern hemisphere in which mainline churches are dying.

 Christendom vs. Christianity
Many members of Christendom have lived lives that were totally unworthy of the name Christian.
During the Middle Ages, everyone in Europe, except the Jews who had been scattered from their homeland, and the Moslems who had invaded parts of Spain, were a part of Christendom.
So if you are one of those in Christendom, but not a true Christian, then its time to turn your life over to Christ, and get into the inner circle.

 FT June/July 2002: The Next Christendom   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Recently a Hungarian Catholic sociologist suggested to me that as far as the future social geography of religion was concerned Rome might as well be in the center of Africa as the center of the Mediterranean.
This does not mean a reversion to medieval organicism or to a synthesis of church and state, but it may be that some African countries will mobilize their identities in Christian terms.
The sub—themes of The Next Christendom mostly relate to the decline in the numerical and intellectual influence of Europe.
