    Shelves: borrowedgottalearnsomethinghistorylifeinforeignlandstheologysociology Among the history books on my shelf are works covering general church history with a strong European focusChristianity in Asia, Africa, the United States and Canada. Iran and the former Taliban regime of Afghanistan are just two examples. Especially targeting critical approaches to the interpretation of the Bible, and trying to blockade the inroads made into their churches by secular scientific assumptions, the fundamentalists grew in various denominations as independent movements of resistance to the drift away from historic Christianity. For me, Horowitz's discussion about the history of Leftist enablement of the AIDS epidemic was particularly informative. It was linked to the traditions of landed gentry and the wealthier and educated planter classes, and the Southern traditions longer than any other church.

    Is the United States a "Christian nation"? Early national leaders understood that separation of church and state would be good for all faiths including Christianity. Although surveys did not include enough black Republicans to analyze separately, the most recent surveys show smaller religious differences by race and ethnicity among Republicans than Democrats. The concept of popular religion distinct from official religion is frequently invoked by historians and sociologists.

    A little credulous about certain kinds of 'miracles' but otherwise fair in respect of the warts on the face of the church's story. At the same time, religious speech has been banned in political debate, and Christianity is extricated from the common way of life. But Henry and his cohorts were in the minority and lost that battle. Therefore, you shall love the LORD, your God, with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength.

John Adams, our second president, was a Unitarian and no document shows the attitude of our founders more than the Treaty of Tripoli. Horowitz isn't the first former Communist to note this fact, but his kind of convert seems to be far rarer than was the case in earlier times.

Straight forward without "talking points". Treaty with Tripoli, Admittedly, the U. Christian beliefs in the sanctity of life, free will, and the flawed nature of humanity are the principal bulwarks against a descent into barbarism that progressivism promises.

Religious Right activists and right-wing television preachers often claim that the United States was founded to be a Christian nation. The result was a certain continuity of Indian religion and survival of ancestral ways within a new Christian structure.

Also see American Fundamentalism These cult-like churches are also very authoritarian, try to isolate their members from the rest of society, regulate even the most petty details of their followers lives, and are utterly intolerant of new ideas or dissent.

In addition, while the Protestant missionaries of the Great Awakening initially opposed slavery in the South, by the early decades of the 19th century, Baptist and Methodist preachers in the South had come to an accommodation with it in order to evangelize with farmers and artisans.

Around Sierra Leone, and in the neighborhood of Cape Palmas, a few natives have been made Christians, and some nations have been partially civilized; but what a small number in comparison with the thousands, nay, I may say millions, who have learned the way to Heaven and who have been made to know their Savior through the means of African slavery!
