Yes - the Holy Bible. This is split into two sections - the Old Testament (old promise of God/Old Covenant or agreement) which is the story of God's revelation since the earliest times. This is still the Bible that the Jewish religion uses today, and would have been the Bible known to Jesus. The se…cond section is the New Testament (the story of God's New covenant with mankind) which consists of four accounts of the life of Jesus by Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, an account of the early Chuch (Acts) several letters by the Apostle Paul to various churches and individuals, various letters by other writers, and the Revelation of John which deals with the end of the world and the final judgment and salvation.

Progressive Christianity is a movement within the Christian faith that encourages the exploration of the implications of critical biblical scholarship and the emerging proposals of eminent contemporary theologians, scholars and others. It explores alternatives to traditional religious beliefs and pr…actices and new ways to understand religious faith. It is inherently transformation-centric, concentrating on how one's Christian spiritual practice transforms one's life (and consequently the life of all aspects of community) rather than on adherence to a set of mind-prescriptions (beliefs) about God or the person of Jesus.

Yes, they were Puritans: Protestants in the 16th and 17th centuries, including, but not limited to, English Calvinists.
Well, they would wear a white cloth with a red cross overchainmail. which is a type of armor with little rings linkedtogether. The red cross represented that the Crusader bearing itwas a follower of Christ.
Helped: For example, the Puritans believed that the book of nature agreed with revealed religion. For the Puritan, creation was God's other book, besides scripture, and it too was worth the most intensive study. Increase Mather articulated their view succinctly: "the [natural] Works of God hav…e a voice in them, as well as his Word." Increase Mather was one of the first to write a book on comets. He observed comets with the telescope brought to Harvard in 1663 by a member of the Royal Society (a scientific organization founded mostly by Puritans which gave us Isaac Newton). That young scientist was John Winthrop Jr. This Winthrop was the son of the determined founding governor of the Puritan "Bible Commonwealth" of Massachusetts and was himself a long-serving governor of the equally Puritan Connecticut. He was also one of the most distinguished New England scientists. The Royal Society named him a member and published some of his observations of animals and fauna. Another Royal Society member, Cotton Mather was a scientist-a scientist precisely because he was a Puritan minister. Besides experimenting with inoculations against small pox, he studied "little eels" through his microscope and Halley's comet through the Harvard telescope. These acts of scientific observation were "acts of devotion themselves, giving new grounds for praising the Almighty by enhancing his sense of the perfect order of things." For his mind there was no contradiction between working for social justice and spending two or perhaps three days a week in secret fasts; no conflict between hailing Copernicus and Newton and preaching the imminence of the millennium, now that the seven last plagues of the Vial are about to be poured out on the Papal Empire; no conflict between studying the Talmud and preaching the Covenant of Grace. This fundamental orientation enabled Puritans to hold simultaneously to a belief in miracles and a bent toward science, a belief in predestination and the need for "means" in mission. They were, in a word, holistic. The Puritans never dreamed that the truth of scripture was to be embraced despite the evidences of reason or science.The Copernican theory gained early acceptance in New England. The unity of all truth, both revealed and empirical, was as much a Puritan basic conviction as it had been in thirteenth-century Paris. .  Increase Mather, The Latter Sign Discoursed of . Boston, 1682; according to Stout, The New England Soul , 102. "One of the classic assumptions of the Puritan mind was that the will of God was to be discerned in nature as well as in revelation."

It is a metaphor for the Christian's journey to heaven, the main character being called Christian. He encounters obstacles like the Slough of Despond-a slough being an area of swampland, despond being depression. Needless to say, it has nothing to do with US History.
A: Euan Cameron ( Interpreting Christian History ) explainsthat beliefs about how to be a good Christian are not uniform orstatic. Patterns of Christian thought and experience evolve, andeach period in Christian history has identified a different bundleof themes and objectives as ultimately importa…nt. One of the majorthemes of medieval Christianity was pilgrimage. During the first three hundred years of Christianity, there was noevident interest in visiting the Holy Land or seeing any of theplaces with which Jesus is identified. Helena, mother of EmperorConstantine, changed all that when she visited Palestine and found,to her own satisfaction, all the places of importance toChristianity and even uncovered the "True Cross". It becameimportant for pious Christians to visit the Holy Land if possible,and to see where Christ was born and where he was buried. No oneargued whether Helena's discoveries were pure fantasy: after allshe had the imprimatur of Emperor Constantine, and therefore of theRoman Empire itself. ( Full Answer )

First off I don't really see how this is realted to United States History or Colonial America, considering this book is a spiritual representation of a physical journey, but anyways By-Ends is a character Christian and Hopeful meet after leaving Vanity Fair. By-Ends wants to join them with their jou…rney but when Christian questions the man's motives and salvations he becomes offended and goes to his old school friends for support(Mr. Save-all, Mr. Hold-the-World, and Mr. Money-Love) These men believe religion should benefit it's followers and should only enable them to gain whatever they want. Christian and Hopeful combat this well, and leave the men with this statement,"can a man use religion to get what he wants and still be a right honest man?" ( Full Answer )

Jews and Christians both consider the Old Testament as sacred-- but Jews do not call it the Old Testament; they call it the Tanakh or the Hebrew Bible (Jews do not use the term "Old Testament" since they do not accept that there is a "New Testamant"). Christians, on the other hand, have two holy boo…ks-- the Old Testament, and an additional holy book-- the New Testament, which is their primary religious scripture, since it tells the story of the founding of the Christian religion. Jews do not use the New Testament, nor do they regard it as sacred to Judaism. ( Full Answer )

Liberalism put quite a few nails in the coffin of Christianity, as many people were Christian out of habit/tradition and were now allowed to choose for themselves. In addition, it became more fashionable to doubt God, increasing the range of science and philosophy from behind the Christian construct…. This saw the rise of Deism as well as a multitude of other Christian (or at least Christian like) sects and philosophies. ( Full Answer )

The answer to your question can be summed up by the words at 2 Timothy 3:16, 17: "All Scripture is inspired of God and beneficial for teaching, for reproving, for setting things straight, for disciplining in righteousness, that the man of God may be fully competent, completely equipped for every goo…d work." Another verse that stresses the import of the Bible is Psalms 1:1-3: "Happy is the man that has not walked in the counsel of the wicked ones, And in the way of sinners has not stood, And in the seat of ridiculers has not sat. But his delight is in the law of Jehovah, And in his law he reads in an undertone day and night. And he will certainly become like a tree planted by streams of water, That gives its own fruit in its season And the foliage of which does not wither, And everything he does will succeed." The reason why it is wise to do as the Bible says is because man cannot even direct his own steps. (Jeremiah 10:23) We were made to worship god, and, as stated at 2 Timothy 3:16, 17 quoted above, the Bible is the only book inspired by God. ( Full Answer )

To those who follow the Mormon faith, the Book of Mormon is indeed another testament of Jesus Christ, and His eternal position as the Savior and mediator of all mankind. To them, the Book of Mormon compliments and supports the teachings of the Bible, not replaces it. Just as the Bible is a record… of God's dealings with people in the Eastern hemisphere, which includes the prophecies, birth, ministry, teachings, crucifiction, and resurrection of Jesus Christ as the savior of the world, the Book of Mormon contains writings from people who lived in the Western hemisphere. The writings of the Book of Mormon contain the histories of these people from about the time of the tower of Babel, to about 400 AD. The prophets in the book testify of Jesus Christ as the Savior of the world, and record His dealings with them. Found in the Book of Mormon are prophecies of Jesus' birth, ministry from prophets, and a first hand account of the natural disasters that occurred following His crucifiction. Following His resurrection, the Savior visited the people in the Western hemisphere, and taught the His gospel. This event is recorded in the 3 Nephi 11 in the Book of Mormon. ( Full Answer )
