Criticism of Christianity has a long history stretching back to the initial formation of the religion during the Roman s have challenged Christian beliefs and teachings as well as Christian actions, from the Crusades to modern intellectual arguments against Christianity include the suppositions that it is a faith of violence, corruption, superstition, polytheism.

  And while that is true, for Christians, it’s deeper than that. Critical Theory is a problem because it rejects the teachings of scripture. What I plan to do in these posts is take the authors’ analysis of what Critical Theory is and superimpose that over, not Enlightenment thinking, but Christian thinking, showing the two as incompatible.   One of the joys of getting to know women in graduate and professional school is the opportunity to follow their lives as they move into their careers.

Prior to the War, there were a number of Christian abolitionists who opposed slavery. The Christian community would do well to equip people both to make choices about their profession, and to follow God’s leading in whatever work we find ourselves doing.

Whatever your job, God’s gifts enable you to work for the common good, to find more contentment in your work, and to overcome or endure the negative aspects of your situation. The Bible uses the Hebrew term eved and Greek doulos (δοῦλος) to refer to slaves.

Eved has a much wider meaning than the English term slave, and in many circumstances it is more accurately translated into English as servant or hired worker. Doulos is more specific, but is also used in more general senses as well: of the Hebrew prophets (Rev ), of the attitude of Christian leaders.

John Wesley left some small amounts of room for interpretation of what he meant by perfection. In his sermon and subsequent tract A Plain Account of Christian Perfection, he defined Christian perfection by stating, “By perfection I mean the humble, gentle, patient love of God and our neighbor, ruling our tempers, words, and actions.” Wesley.

But he wanted to say a few words with regard to the Congregational denomination, or Independents, as they were called here. In the film, slaveholders use Christian rhetoric and biblical passages to insist that slavery was ordained by God and consistent with being a “good” Christian.

This is juxtaposed with scenes of enslaved men and women singing songs and hymns of the same Christian tradition, the very tradition used to justify their enslavement. In Catholics, Slaveholders, and the Dilemma of American Evangelicalism, –, W.
