Description

The extreme to which the church has gone in order to protect and justify its various decisions regarding points of faith is fascinating, but tends to obscure the truth. Revisionist history, coercion, and propaganda were the order of the day when the major items of doctrine were being decided. In fact, many of those truths that we hold so dear in our Christian faith were decided, if not invented, through or because of political means, and not by theological insight. Many doctrines went well beyond what the early church held as truth. To look behind the curtain of church history, information should be viewed with a political as well as scientific bias, and compared to other historical documents of the time. The reader is invited to consider the history and virtue of the doctrines of his church based on this new insight and to make a more educated personal stand. In the end, one must ask, "Where is God amidst all of these rules, political maneuverings, and doctrines?" First, we will discover how our faith was changed. Then we will discover where we left God. Items discussed include: Theology, Framework Of Christianity, The Bible, The Canon of the Bible, Inerrant Scripture, The Trinity, Virgin Birth, Polygamy, Celibacy, Transubstantiation, Rapture, Apocalypse and the End of Days, Sabbath verses Sunday, Tithes and Offerings, Prayer and Faith, Magical Thinking, Original Sin, Mary: Immaculate Conception, Baptism, Predestination and Foreknowledge, The Mark of Cain, Job and the Petty God, The Schizophrenic God of the Old and New Testaments, The Development of Satan, The Axial Age, The Pinnacle of the Axial Age, Religion Addiction, Conclusion of Religion and the Beginning of Spirituality.
