Modern Religion vs secular "scientific" Materialism, part 1 of 5
- Dear Members,Are are some very important paragraphs and sections from the public domain Fifth Epochal Revelation on the intense struggle between revealed true religion and "scientific" materialism and godless secular humanism -atheism. Please carefully reflect on this and comment if you wish.[my brief comments of explanation are in these square brackets]Page-2075 "Christianity exhibits a history of having originated out of the unintended transformation of the religion of Jesus into a religion about Jesus. It further presents the history of having experienced Hellenization, paganization, secularization, institutionalization, intellectual deterioration, spiritual decadence, moral hibernation, threatened extinction, later rejuvenation, fragmentation, and more recent [as of A.D. 1935] relative rehabilitation. Such a pedigree is indicative of inherent vitality and the possession of vast recuperative resources. And this same Christianity is now present in the civilized world of Occidental peoples and stands face to face with a struggle for existence which is even more ominous than those eventful crises which have characterized its past battles for dominance."[This Paper 195 will cover this in great depth in the next four presentations here.]"Religion is now confronted by the challenge of a new age of scientific minds and materialistic tendencies. In this gigantic struggle between the secular and the spiritual, the religion of Jesus will eventually triumph."Peace and progress in Spirit and in Father-Son Truth,Brother DaveEach Saturday & Sunday 3PM CST live internet radio show
