Godliness Versus Christianity

Submitted by Stephen Winters

It seems to me that there is a vast difference between godliness and modern day christianity. Godliness is about believing and living by that which is true.  So, it could be compared to living by the scientific method.

    Ask a Question
    Do Background Research
    Construct a Hypothesis
    Test Your Hypothesis by Doing an Experiment
    Analyze Your Data and Draw a Conclusion
    Communicate Your Results

Thereby you have tested it for yourself and can more readily "believe" what you have yourself seen and done.

Faith is a Journey

Submitted by Stephen Winters

I have seen and read the "Statement of Faith" of various churches and religious organizations which they seem to hold up as the undeniable and unbendable proof of their faith. It seems that they are saying that (their) faith is, or has been, a result of very precisely following the formula of "read the bible, pray, go to church, accept Christ as Saviour, etc." The path can be (at least in their minds) be very clearly traced along a specific religious path.

The Paradox of God's Intervention

Submitted by Stephen Winters

Christians often pray that God may save this person or that person, or that God will cause something to happen. And yet at the same time Christians say that God condemns people who don't "accept Christ, etc.". There is a paradox here. Is it God that changes our hearts, or are we responsible to change our hearts? If God is the one who changes our hearts, then why do Christians say that God condemns those who "don't change". On the Other hand, if we are responsible to change, then why do Christians pray that God will change our hearts? Which way is it?
