 Christianity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Christian practice is derived from John the Baptist's call to repentance and conversion (metanoia), and is said to mark a new, spiritual birth.
Christianity and the pagan religions of classical antiquity are popularly understood to have been rivals, with each seeking to persecute and destroy the other.
Christians however neither recognize the Qur'an as a genuine book of divine revelation, nor agree with its assessment of Jesus as a mere prophet, on par with Muhammad, nor for that matter accept that Muhammad was a genuine prophet.

 Cardinal Francis Arinze - Christian-Muslim Relations in the 21st Century
Christians and Muslims are called upon to develop such harmonious relations in the 21st century that while maintaining their differing religious identities, they can show the world that they share respect for God and that they believe that human conduct should follow God's will and law.
Christian and Muslim parents, leaders and educators should be so convinced of the necessity of a sincere commitment to peace, beginning with peace between Muslims and Christians, that they will be able to effectively share these convictions in the family, at school, over the mass media, and especially in mosques and churches.
Christians are taught by their religion to examine their conscience each day, especially in the evening, to accept responsibility for any wrongs they may have done, and to repent and beg God for forgiveness.

 A NEW CENTURY OF CHRISTIAN MARTYRDOM: THE UNTOLD MIDDLE EASTERN CRISIS by Srdja Trifkovic   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-07)
Institutionalized or covert discrimination to which Christians are subjected in Syria, Israel, Egypt, and Lebanon, accompanied by occasional eruptions of anti-Christian violence by the Muslim majority in the last two countries, have contributed to an exodus that threatens to eradicate the believers in Christ in the lands of his birth and life.
It is a cruel irony that the plight of indigenous Christians remained invisible to hundreds of thousands of Christians from Europe and North America-from mainstream churches and fringe groups-who descended on the Holy Land to mark the 2,000th anniversary of their faith.
Thirteen centuries of religious discrimination, causing suffering and death of countless millions, have been covered by the myth of Islamic "tolerance" that is as hurtful to the few descendants of the victims as it is useless as a means of appeasing latter-day jihadists.

 The Christian Century : Century marks. @ HighBeam Research   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-07)
DOING PENANCE: The Christian petition "Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us" is rooted in the Jewish practice of penance and penitential prayer, says Ellen Charry of Princeton Theological Seminary.
Yet this practice has never been institutionalized in Christianity to the degree it was in Judaism, which devotes a full month to penitential prayer and the practice of personal forgiveness, and which puts the burden of reconciliation on the trespasser.
Christians have two seasons for penance, Advent and Lent, but the Christian focus is more vertical than horizontal, dwelling on our relationship with God rather than each other.

 491123: What Experiences of Christians
In this paper we shall discuss the experiences of early Christians which lead to three rather orthodox doctrines--the divine sonship of Jesus, the virgin birth, and the bodily resurrection.
To the earliest Christians this breath-taking conviction was not the conclusion of an argument, but the inescapable solution of a problem.
A more adequate explanation for the rise of this doctrine is found in the experience which the early christians had with Jesus.Davis corrected "christians" to "Christians." The people saw within Jesus such a uniqueness of quality and spirit that to explain him in terms of ordinary background was to them quite inadequate.

 Christian Socialists
The meeting was a response to the decision by the House of Commons to reject the recent Chartist Petition.
Christian Socialists promoted the cooperative ideas of Robert Owen and suggested profit sharing as a way of improving the status of the working classes and as a means of producing a just, Christian society.
Surely that man or woman is no Christian at all, except in name, in so far as he or she remains indifferent to the awful abyss that yarns between rich and poor; to the insufficiency of the share in our immense wealth which falls to the lot of those who produce it.

 The Ecole Initiative: Jews and Judaism in Christian Writings of the II Century CE
The view of Judaism meeting Christianity blow for blow until well into the fourth century CE when the Christian sources become ossified and Jews are legislated out of discourse by the Theodosian codes of the late fourth century, is also now coming under fire.
Each writer or document had their own ideas about what constituted proper Christian belief and expression, but for the most part there is evidence that some Christians saw no difficulty in, for example, holding a dual-covenant theory of salvation for the Jews and the Gentiles.
Christian writings from Marcion onwards are especially concerned to show the necessity of the Hebrew scriptures and explain the reason for God's apperantly punitive aspects.

By 2025 Christians will be by far the world's largest faith at 2.6 billion, with half of that in Latin America and Africa, and another 17% in Asia.
Given Christianity's influence in countries that are moving toward democracy, religion itself is likely to play a key role in the ultimate shape of these nations.
The center of Christianity is definitely moving to Africa, Latin America and Asia, though interestingly those adherents are bringing their religions back to Europe and the U.S. Declining birthrates in Europe will likely bring greater immigration, much of it fueled by active Christians from poorer regions like Africa.

 Christian Century: Can't we just argue? - ideas of Stanley Hauerwas   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-07)
Christian pacifism must be an active peacemaking, the first step of which is to locate and truthfully name what is in conflict.
A Christian must recognize the tragic reality, however, that not all conflicts are peacefully resolvable, which is why Christians must forswear the use of coercion to enforce the truth.
The real reason the death penalty is used is a desire for revenge, a temptation to which Christians must not succumb.

 Christ Myth Refuted. Did Jesus Exist? A Christian Response
The issue here relates to the Jewish belief that the Christ, when he came, would not proclaim himself (a belief we see evidenced from Jesus' own circumspection in claiming to be Messiah, and in that Bar Kochba, when he arrived, did not claim the title for himself, but allowed others to proclaim it for him).
Since you think Acts was written as late as the second century, that means all we have to prove that Gamaliel existed is a bunch of third-hand (at best) hearsay -- and as well as know from the expert historian Thomas Paine, all hearsay is automatically flushed down the loo and not be be believed.
I say that this is the case; as one of those worthless rabbinic documents says, "When he died the honor [outward respect] of the Torah ceased, and purity and piety became extinct" (Sot.ah xv: 18).

 Christian Century: Haunted by evil. - review of the book Evil in Modern Thought by Susan Neiman - book review
Neiman, however, insists that the central issue of philosophy, beginning in the 17th century, has not been, "What can we know for sure?" but, "Can we make sense of evil?" One side of the debate, represented by Leibniz, Rousseau, Kant, Hegel and Marx, holds that we can and must make the reality of evil comprehensible.
Yet a Christian theologian can't help regretting the absence of any reference to Christian theology (a few Jewish religious thinkers do get mentioned in passing).
Second, even when they maintain that God can always bring good out of evil most Christian theologians would agree with Neiman that we should be very cautious in offering anything like explanations of how evil fits into a rational picture of the world.

At that time, near the end of the Roman Empire, Christianity was an outlawed religion practiced in the Holy Land in the clandestine chapels of private homes.
By the 4th century, it was a city of some size known as Maximianopolis.
But archaeologists say the second half of the 3rd century, when the building might have been erected, was probably a relatively open time to be Christian.

 The Promised Land of Weight Loss:
There is no doubt that the message of the Christian diet and fitness industry may still work to perpetuate the most harmful stereotypes of those in our society who are heavier than the latest faddish norm, reinforcing the double jeopardy of being a "fat" Christian in America.
I have seen and interviewed a lot of women like that in my research on evangelical and charismatic Christian women—women who are concerned about their girth yet not to the point of hating themselves or losing their faith in a loving, gracious God.
Despite all the determined efforts to maintain a triumphal optimism about the liberating possibilities of weight loss, the oppressiveness of fleshly disciplines may well prevail, as the command to love oneself, including the body, is contradicted and undermined by the directive to amend its defects and unceasingly refine its contours.

 The Christian Century
Acknowledging that a religious bias favoring evangelical Christianity has been pervasive at the U.S. Air Force Academy, the school's superintendent told a Jewish audience this month that "it's going to take a while to fix," perhaps a half-dozen years, despite an official investigation of mounting complaints.
The academy, located on the scenic outskirts of Colorado Springs, has drawn support from evangelical Christians who say that religious freedom of expression is being unduly attacked.
"There's one religious voice, the conservative evangelical Christian voice, that has decided that it has the right to lay claim to the environment," she says, "and it is able to do that by working with the academy power structure."

Christians who refuse to compromise are often demeaned as old-fashioned kill-joys who bring reproof and embarrassment to those who fear offending the world with the whole truth of the gospel.

This ideology argues that the divine format of the Christian system – as such existed in the first century under the guidance of inspired teachers – was exactly what God intended it to be.
