Answer. "Explain how Christian ideas are different from the scientifictheories about the origin of the world?" . By Harold S. Kushner (1981)--notes by Doug Muder (1997) offersthe following: . Best wishes . 8. What good, then, is religion? [pages 132-148] . "No one ever promised us a life free f…rom pain anddisappointment. The most anyone promised us was that we would notbe alone in our pain, and that we would be able to draw upon asource outside ourselves for the strength and courage we would needto survive life's tragedies and life's unfairness." [page 133] . "I no longer hold God responsible for illnesses, accidents, andnatural disasters, because I realize that I gain little and I loseso much when I blame God for those things. I can worship a God whohates suffering but cannot eliminate it, more easily than I canworship a God who chooses to make children suffer and die, forwhatever exalted reason." [page 134] . "We could bear any burden if we thought there was a meaning towhat we were doing. Have I made it harder for people to accepttheir illnesses, their misfortunes, their family tragedies bytelling them that they are not sent by God as part of some masterplan of His? Let me suggest that the bad things that happen to usin our lives do not have a meaning when they happen to us. They donot happen for any good reason which would cause us to accept themwillingly. But we can give them a meaning." [pages 135-136] . "The facts of life and death are neutral. We, by our responses,give suffering either a positive or a negative meaning. Illnesses,accidents, human tragedies kill people. But they do not necessarilykill life or faith. If the death and suffering of someone we lovemakes us bitter, jealous, against all religion, and incapable ofhappiness, we turn the person who died into one of the 'devil'smartyrs.' If suffering and death in someone close to us bring us toexplore the limits of our capacity for strength and love andcheerfulness, if it leads us to discover sources of consolation wenever knew before, then we make the person into a witness for theaffirmation of life rather than its rejection." [page 138] . "God, who neither causes nor prevents tragedies, helps byinspiring people to help." [page 140] . "I firmly believe that [my son] Aaron served God's purposes, notbe being sick or strange-looking (there was no reason why Godshould have wanted that), but by facing up so bravely to hisillness and to the problems caused by his appearance. I know thathis friends and schoolmates were affected by his courage and by theway he managed to live a full life despite his limitations. And Iknow that people who knew our family were moved to handle thedifficult times of their own lives with more hope and courage whenthey saw our example. I take these as instances of God movingpeople here on earth to help other people in need." [page 141] . "When people who were not particularly strong become strong inthe face of adversity, when people who tended to think only ofthemselves become unselfish and heroic in an emergency, I have toask myself where they got these qualities which they would freelyadmit they did not have before. My answer is that this is one ofthe ways in which God helps us when we suffer beyond the limits ofour own strength." [page 142] . "Our responding to life's unfairness with sympathy and withrighteous indignation, God's compassion and God's anger workingthrough us, may be the surest proof of all of God's reality."[pages 142-143] . "Religion alone can affirm the afflicted person's sense ofself-worth. Science can describe what has happened to a person;only religion can call it a tragedy. Only the voice of religion,when it frees itself from the need to defend and justify God forall that happens, can say to the afflicted person, 'You are a goodperson, and you deserve better. Let me come and sit with you sothat you will know that you are not alone.'" [page 143] . Sorry, I just realized the above post doesn't give a clear anddirect answer to your question, my speed reading needs fine tuning(smile), but it does touch a little on the subject. . Best wishes (smile) . Because science is based on Natural laws, while god is onsupernatural. Comment . It is a common misconception that Christians ignore the evidenceprovided by science and then invoke a 'God of the gaps' to accountfor anything they cannot explain. In fact it was the Christianbelief in an orderly Universe based on Natural Laws put there by anall-wise creator that spawned modern science as opposed tosuperstition. Belief in a supernatural all-powerful deity is notnecessarily in conflict with the world that exists. It is in conflict with an anti-supernatural worldview which have a set of presuppositions which are put forward asscientific. A Summary of Some Differences Between Christian andNaturalistic Views on Origins . Christian : God all-powerful (almighty) eternal and all-wiseCreator. Evolutionary: God is irrelevant if He exists at all. Only anaturalistic (non-supernatural) explanation of origins allowed. Christian: God made universe and living things etc in 7 literal 24hour days. this occurred about 6000 years ago and was ex nihilo(from nothing). Evolutionary: Universe made itself (ex nihilo) from a speck ofmatter which exploded from a quantum fluctuation in a vacuum andeventually expanded into all that is about 13.7 Billion years ago. Christian : Creation in Genesis in harmony with Laws of BioGenesis,the First and Second Laws of Thermodynamics and Genetics, as wellas much data (even data discovered by evolutionists). Evolutionary: Violates all three above Laws of Science (these haveno known observable exception). Big Bang and Steady State theoriesattempt to get around this. Christian: Races of people do not exist as a biological fact. Theidea of different nations of men but not Race is taught. Men areall of one blood. Acts 17 v 26. Human Genome project has confirmedthe essential unity on mankind because all descended from samestock - the intelligent couple Adam and his wife Eve. Externaldifferences are not genetically significant. Evolutionary: Different Races of mankind exist some being morehighly evolved than others who are closer to their common ancestryin an ape-like creature. This idea not justified by moderngenetics. Christian: Biblical teaching contained in Genesis 1 through 11 andelsewhere remains unchanged over 3500 years. Evolutionary: Requires constant modification and rejection of falseand fraudulent arguments used to support it. Various forms of thetheory have sought to get around the scientific problems. Another View: Answer:. Christian origin idea arebased on the poems that tell about creation, one in Genesis 1,another in Genesis 2, and a third in Job 38. Just like theBabylonian origin ideas came from their poem of creation EnumaElish , like the Greek origin ideas came from Hesiod's Cosmogony and the HIndu creation ideas came from theirpoem Rig Veda . Scientific theories don't come from a religious poem, but fromobserving nature. Christain ideas stem from the revelations given in the bible. Theythen try to fit what is observed into their religious framework. Scientific ideas are based on observation and experiments, theframeworks are temporary and are continually being changed orimproved. Because science is based on Natural laws, while god is onsupernatural. . ( Full Answer )

The reasons for the coming of Christ from whom Christianity originated are given in the following passages of Scripture. The exact nature of the fall of Adam and Eve related below is a matter for debate but Jewish history and subsequent events confirm that this event or an event of a similar nature …took place which necessitated the coming of Christ. From the beginning God made us in His image and therefore able to share in His Divine nature but when Adam and Eve, being tempted by the serpent/devil, disobeyed God by " eating of the fruit of the tree of tree of the knowledge of good and evil" their eyes were opened and God said, "'Behold, the man has become like one of us, knowing good and evil; and now, lest he put forth his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever' therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from which he was taken. He drove out the man; and at the east of the Garden of Eden he placed the cherubim, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life." (Genesis Chapter 3) God promised the serpent/devil "Because you have done this, cursed are you above all cattle, and above all wild animals; upon your belly you shall go, and dust you shall eat all the days of your life. I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel." (Genesis Chapter 3) He promised a "Redeemer" from the children of Eve who would restore our link to Him. Until that time came He sent the prophets as mediators between Himself and his people to spread the Law and keep alive the promise He made. "I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. "You shall have no other gods before me...." (Exodus Ch 20) "Fear not... the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer, the God of the whole earth he is called. â¦.. For a brief moment I forsook you, but with great compassion I will gather you. In overflowing wrath for a moment I hid my face from you, but with everlasting love I will have compassion on you, says the LORD, your Redeemer .(Isaiah Chapter 54) "Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will fulfil the promise I made to the house of Israel and the house of Judah. In those days and at that time I will cause a righteous Branch to spring forth for David; and he shall execute justice and righteousness in the land" (Jeremiah Chapter 33) At the appropriate time the Redeemer came in the person of Jesus Christ, son of the Living God born of the Virgin Mary, a descendant of Eve, who is our King and ruler of the Kingdom of Heaven. Answer Christianity as we know it today was codified in 325 at the Council of Nicea. Before that date, it was a variety of Judaism that believed that Jesus was the promised Messiah of Israel. The apostles were Jewish men who studied with Jesus, and were firmly convinced that he was The Anointed One which was promised by God in the Old Testament. The book of Acts in the New Testament records their reactions and journeys in spreading their beliefs to Jew and Gentile. The big split between Christianity and Judaism came about 135 CE during the Bar Kokhba Revolt. The Christians did not believe that Bar Kokhba was the Messiah, as they already knew that Jesus was. But the leadership of Judaism pushed for Bar Kokhba as Messiah, and the Christians did not participate in the revolt. This led to the division of Jew and Christian as it is today. Answer Christianity originated in order to bring the Law of Moses to the European pagans. To make the law attractive to them, Christianity's images are all pagan, from the virgin birth of Jesus to his ritual sacrifice and resurrection, because these are familiar ideas that the pagans could recognize and understand. Later, of course, the founders of the church mistook the package - wrapped as it was in pagan imagery - for the Law itself that the package was intended to contain: Love one another and treat each other with justice and mercy. And so instead of justice and mercy we have holy wars and inquisitions, where bloody fools argue and kill each other over meaningless doctrinal distinctions about the wrapping material covering the Law of peace and love they have forgotten inside. God laughs, but Jesus weeps. Religious strife breaks his heart. God planned "Christianity" from before the foundation of the world. First He called a people, the Jews and they were to evangelize the world, telling of a Messiah to come. Finally down through the ages the Messiah did come in the person of Jesus. The Jewish people did not believe Jesus was the Messiah and had Him crucified. But Jesus's disciples/ Apostles did believe Jesus was the Messiah and on Pentecost the Holy Spirit of God entered their hearts and the Christian church began. Christianity started and will continue because we (Christians) believe in their heart that Jesus is the Son of God and is the Savior of the world. Jesus said, "The gates of hell will not prevail against the church" . My translation. Christianity never 'started.' It has always been there, as God has also, being outside of time. As man followed God, a name was put to the followers: Christians. So Christianity is defined. ( Full Answer )
Answers as given by different Wi kiAnswers contributors: Answer According to Christians, Christianity wasfounded by G-D. It is the doctrines and teachings of Jesus Christ.Christians believe that Jesus is the Christ, or the Messiah. AfterHis death and resurrection, his disciples (like Peter and… Paul)spread His gospel abroad. To understand what Christianity is, though, look at the root wordChristos, which is Greek for Christ. The Christ was the "anointedone," to be anointed means to be chosen by G-D for royalty orpriesthood. While Christ is from the Greek, Messiah comes from theHebrew "Meshiach," also meaning the "anointed one." A "Christian"and a "Messianic" Believer by definition must be one and the same. Answer It is essential that Paul be included in discussions of theorigins of Christianity. Without the work that Paul did,Christianity might not have caught on anywhere. He made severalmissionary journies that are documented in the Book of Acts, and healso played a major role in opening the Christian church to thenon-Jewish communities of the day. Most study bibles have sectionsoutlining Paul's journies, and they make for a very exciting timein the early history of the church. Paul's letters, independent ofthe journeys he made, also play a major role in the disseminationof Christian teaching. Answer JUDAISM Answer Christianity was a religion evolved from the Ancient EgyptianReligion of Sun worship between 2 and 3 thousand years ago. First it is important to point out that Jesus Christ as worshippedby Christians has only ever appeared in religious texts which arenot considered to be a reliable source of history by main streamhistorians. He has never appeared in any actual historicaldocuments and so there is considerable doubt as to whether heactually existed as described in the bible at all. As far as the origin of Christianity goes there are many documentsI can reference but the documentary "Zietguist" does this for usvery well so I will quote a summary from the text: "Furthermore, the character of Jesus, a literary and astrologicalhybrid, is most explicitly a plagiarization of the Egyptian Sun-godHorus.For example, inscribed about 3500 years, on the walls of theTemple of Luxor in Egypt are images of the enunciation, theimmaculate conception, the birth, and the adoration of Horus. Theimages begin with Thaw announcing to the virgin Isis that she willconceive Horus, then Nef the holy ghost impregnating the virgin,and then the virgin birth and the adoration.This is exactly thestory of Jesus' miracle conception. In fact, the literarysimilarities between the Egyptian religion and the Christianreligion are staggering." Answer For Christians, Christianityoriginated as the disciples (and later, the apostles) spread thenews of Jesus Christ's death and resurrection, building up afledgling church which has grown into what it is today. These men,who fled from the scene and denied their association with Jesuswhile he was being crucified, preached with a boldness that wentagainst the Jewish traditions in which they had been raised. Originally, these followers called themselves followers of "theWay" (Acts 9:2), after Jesus's words " I am the Way, the Truthand the Life. No one comes to the Father but by me. " Sometimeafter Christ's death and resurrection, a new term arose, that being"Christian". The first use of this word "Christian" to refer tochrist's followers is recorded in Acts 11:26 as having been used inAntioch, a city in Syria. The term comes from the Greek wordmeaning Messiah "Christos" and the latin ending "ianus". Thecombination of these two words means "belonging to Christ". Christianity is based on the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth.Christians believe that Jesus was the son of God, was able toperform miracles, and was resurrected after being crucified. ( Full Answer )

Specifically; the introduction of religion and a hierarch…al structure dramatically and permanently altered the structure and social course in the Atlantic World. Further, the introduction of slaves, indentured servants, and foreign crops all sped the economic development and changes that existed. ( Full Answer )
Christianity originated in the city of Jerusalem in present-day Israel. The founder of Christianity, Jesus Christ, was born in the small town of Bethlehem, just a few miles southwest of Jerusalem. He was raised in the town of Nazareth in the region of Galilee, about one hundred miles north of Jerusa…lem. However, prophecy demanded that the Messiah come to Jerusalem, riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey" (Zechariah 9:9). The New Testament records Jesus riding into Jerusalem and only a few days later being crucified there. Two days later, on the third day, Jesus was raised from the dead. Jesus told his apostles to wait in Jerusalem for the sending of the Holy Spirit. Forty-nine days after his resurrection, on the Day of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit fell on the apostles as Peter preached the first public gospel sermon. All this is recorded in Acts chapter two. From its birth, with three thousand baptisms of the first day, the church rapidly grew in Jerusalem, later spreading to Judea, Samaria and Galilee in the following few years. Once the first non-Jews were baptized (Acts 10) the church rapidly spread outside what were traditionally Jewish lands into all the Roman Empire and beyond during the next three or four centuries. A question arises, which is can we know from sources outside the New Testament whether the accounts in the New Testament are accurate history. This is a broad question, but the general consensus of historians is that the broad background of the history described above is accurate. Both the Jewish historian Josephus (late first century), as well as the avowed religious Jews who wrote the Talmud (second through fourth centuries) agreed that Jesus was a real person who did indeed die in Jerusalem. All the evidence we have points toward the fact that the earliest preaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ included the central teaching of his resurrection in Jerusalem. Therefore, it can be stated with confidence that the Church of Jesus Christ (Christianity) began in Jerusalem. In the area now known as Israel/Palestine. ( Full Answer )
Where is the origin of Christianity? Jesus is the origin of Christianity. He is in heaven, at the right hand of the Father, and with his people. Where was the origin of Christianity? Jesus lived in the Roman province of Galilee and spend much time in Judea. These are in the land that is now I…srael and the occupied Palestinian West Bank. Jesus died and was resurrected just outside Jerusalem, which would be in today's Jerusalem. ( Full Answer )
Many Christians believe that the world was created ex nihilo by God around 6,000 years ago. However, this is not supported by science, noris the belief strictly in accordance with the Bible. . Until the early centuries of Christianity, Christians basedtheir beliefs more literally on the Book of Ge…nesis in the Old Testament, butthese beliefs are less commonly held today. Because there are two creationstories in Genesis: (1) verses 1:1 to 2:4a; (2) 2:4b to 2:22, Christianitygenerally preferred the version in Genesis 1:1 to 2:4a for its understanding ofthe creation of the world in six days. However, Christianity does use thesecond story for its literal understanding of the creation of Adam.. The first of these (1:1-2:4a) is recognised by scholars asthe work of the Priestly (P) source, based on a Mesopotamian mythe encounteredby the Jews in Babylon. So, the creation account that has the world created insix days, which every Christian learns as a child, did not even exist prior tothe sixth century BCE.. A summary follows, in order to show that there really aretwo creation accounts in Genesis:. In Genesis 1:1 to 2:4a ( up tofirst sentence of 2:4) there was a pre-existing watery chaos. The ocean wasalready present and a wind moved across the surface. The seas rested on the dryland, which appeared on day 3 when God gathered the waters together. The orderof creation was as follows:. (Day 1) light [day]; (2) thefirmament, which was believed to separate the waters of the heavens from thelower waters; (3) By gathering the lower waters in one place the land appeared.Grasses and trees; (4) sun; moon and stars - the lights in the firmament; (5)fish, land creatures and fowl; (6) man, both male and female. Notice that thelight of day was not yet understood to have originated from the sun, althoughthe sun was universally understood to rule the day. That is why it was possibleto have grass and trees before the sun was created.. Genesis 2:4b to 2:15 says that there was pre-existing dry land, but God had yet to make it rain for plants to grow. A spring arose and God took some moist clay and made Adam. After Adam, he made the creatures of earth, one by one, then finally Eve. This account could scarcely be different from the previous version.. Some Christians hold to what they regard as a literal reading of the Bible, with the world and all life on it created just 6000 years ago, while others seek to accommodate the biblical stories within a much longer timeframe. Finally, some Christians who acknowledge that the world isfar older than stated in the biblical account accept that it was formed by naturalprocesses. Many see a compromise between science and religion and hold to"theistic evolution" as the explanation for the world we live in..

Some parts of Africa have been westernised, but most of Africa isn't. Africa has many countries and there are many cultures in them.. To ask if the entire continent has been westernized or not is pretty broad. Even parts of North America and Europe haven't been Westernized. You'd have to consider w…hat it means to be Westernized as in culturally, socially, or technologically, etc. It'd be an easier question to answer if you could specify in what way or and what region.. To try to answer the question, many different parts of Africa have been at some time been subjugated to colonial rule and be converted into Western settlements or colonies, but that was around the 17-20th Centuries. After the removal of the European powers, much of Africa had been controlled by totalitarian regimes. In a way, you could say the majority of the people there are too poor to be Westernized right now, but there are concentrated Westernized nations like South Africa, Egypt. While countries like Somalia, parts of Sudan, even Tazania have modern technology, but they can't be considered socio-culturally a Western nation. So it really depends on how you want to measure it.

A devastating effect. When Christians entered Africa they saw a vast and beautiful land rich in gold, silver, diamonds, oil, minerals - the list goes on. Africa had to be taken. But how? By preaching the doctrine of Christianity to the African people, the land and all it had to offer would be thei…rs. Christianity claims that Jesus preached forgiveness, love for enemies and the prospect of becoming God's children: 'You have heard that it was said, 'Love your friends, hate your enemies.' But now I tell you: love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may become the children of your Father in heaven. For he makes his sun to shine on bad and good people alike and gives rain to those who do good and to those who do evil." (Matthew 5:43-45). Christianity would have you believe that Jesus changed God's law written in the book of Leviticus: "If anyone injures another person, whatever he has done shall be done to him. If he breaks a bone, one of his bones shall be broken; if he blinds him in one eye, one of his eyes shall be blinded; if he knocks out a tooth, one of his teeth shall be knocked out. Whatever injury he causes another person shall be done to him in return." (Leviticus 24:19-20). Had the Africans held fast to the words written in God's word and rejected the false doctrine of Christianity, the effects on Africa and its people would be minimal to say the least. Unfortunately this has not been the case. Christianity has been successful in deceiving unsuspecting Africans and while its teachings were being accepted by the Africans, the land and its produce was falling into the hands of colonists with little or no resistance from the Africans. Christianity has been a cancer to Africa. The more it has spread the more devastation it has left in its wake and the only way to stop it, is to cut it out.

Philip and the Ethiopian. 26 Now an angel of the Lord said to Philip, "Go south to the road-the desert road-that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza." 27 So he started out, and on his way he met an Ethiopian [ d ] eunuch, an important official in charge of all the treasury of Candace, queen of the… Ethiopians. This man had gone to Jerusalem to worship, 28 and on his way home was sitting in his chariot reading the book of Isaiah the prophet. 29 The Spirit told Philip, "Go to that chariot and stay near it.". 30 Then Philip ran up to the chariot and heard the man reading Isaiah the prophet. "Do you understand what you are reading?" Philip asked.. 31 "How can I," he said, "unless someone explains it to me?" So he invited Philip to come up and sit with him.. 32 The eunuch was reading this passage of Scripture: "He was led like a sheep to the slaughter, and as a lamb before the shearer is silent, so he did not open his mouth. 33 In his humiliation he was deprived of justice. Who can speak of his descendants? For his life was taken from the earth." [ e ] . 34 The eunuch asked Philip, "Tell me, please, who is the prophet talking about, himself or someone else?" 35 Then Philip began with that very passage of Scripture and told him the good news about Jesus.. 36 As they traveled along the road, they came to some water and the eunuch said, "Look, here is water. Why shouldn't I be baptized?" [ f ] 38 And he gave orders to stop the chariot. Then both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water and Philip baptized him. 39 When they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord suddenly took Philip away, and the eunuch did not see him again, but went on his way rejoicing. 40 Philip, however, appeared at Azotus and traveled about, preaching the gospel in all the towns until he reached Caesarea.

An Opinion This is a question with a vast . Here is one thing. Christianity gave modern science to the Western world because the Christian faith assumed that God created an orderly world which could and should be studied. This presupposition was necessary for science to proceed. Men like Galil…eo and Keppler believed that their work gave glory to the God who made the heavens. Keppler specifically dedicated his work to the glory of God. In societies where this Christian presupposition did not exist science was 'stillborn'. and did not develop to the extent it did in the west. Interestingly, this presupposition still underlies modern science although many scientists reject God and have a presupposition of aimless and mindless evolution which somehow created order out of the chaos of the 'big bang' including the various laws which we have discovered both in biology and in physics. Perhaps it is impossible to do science without this, so even though what is discovered from the microscopic level to the vastness of the universe demonstrates orderliness, scientists now assume orderliness came from aimlessness instead rather than God.

The origin of Christianity is read about in the Bible. Jesus cameto earth and started teaching. He gathered a group of men aroundhim and taught them for about 3 years. Later they would be called,"The Apostles". After Jesus died and rose again, these Apostleswent around and taught other people what t…hey had learned aboutJesus. We read this in ACT 11:26.

Not at all.. Whilst Christianity began in the Middle east and became more of a Western religion after America was discovered, the main growth in the church is now in the east. In southern Korea, growth has been astronomical and there are many churches there that now have congregations of over thirt…y thousand members each. In Russia, growth has been vigorous and incessant since the days of perestroika. In Africa it has been estimated that there are now more Christians than America and Europe combined. In India there is a huge, and growing, Christian population. But the most impressive growth is in China. In the sixties, when religion was outlawed during the 'cultural revolution', there were only around five thousand Christians meeting in secret for fear of persecution in the whole country.
