Inset gallery with Tuscan columns wraps around three sides. He called God "Abba," clearly reflective of an experiential intimacy with the holy.

In alarm at the tendency to accommodate Christianity to the accepted standards of the secular world, there is a repudiation by Christian leaders of all sources of moral decision not specifically grounded in the Bible. We wanted real books, easy-to-use Instructor's Guides, and a big world view. I've already written of the deleterious effects of such literalism on science and knowledge: The stubborn stance against science and real-world knowledge in Christianity stems from the very founders of that religion.

One should bear in mind that the described event took place just several years after the crucifixion of the false Messiah Theudas in 44 C. Griffith's ground-breaking The Birth of a Nation (1915), to Cecil B. E. to a Christian missionary in Britain, recommended that local pagan temples not be destroyed but be converted into churches, and that pagan festivals be celebrated as feasts of Christian martyrs.

Its compilation process was not spread over centuries but over a small span of few years and within the life time of its original recipients.

Paul's Response: “How Dare you!” ( 1 Corinthians 6:1-10 ): “How dare you sue a Christian brother in secular court!” (1 Corinthians 6:1-paraphrased).

Where one is prominent, the other fades in significance. Third, most of the similarities are often apparent and not real--a result of sloppy terminology on the part of those who explain them.
