  • The Enlightenment
  • (Fordham links) (History Guide) (Shannon Duffy See #22)

    "..for the social philosophers of the Enlightenment, the discovery that moral and material qualities are 'not qualities in objects, but perceptions of the mind...has little or no influence on practice' (Hume, Treatise, Book III, Part I, Sec. I). What counts, is the rejection of metaphysical first causes which results in the setting free of the 'plain, historical method' of experience, observation, and experiment." - Dictionary of the History of Ideas

    "In every age the men who want us under their thumb, if they have any sense, will put forward the particular pretension which the hopes and fears of that age render most potent. They 'cash in.' It has been magic, it has been Christianity. Now it will certainly be science.." - Jack Lewis, Lewis Society

Religion, Christianity, Theology, and Churches

Church Commentary

"Does Christianity realize that it is something different from what..religion can be? Does it see that it is the church of the one God, the church of Jesus Christ, the church of the God who has mercy on the lost? Amid all the loquacious splendor of the religions, a Christianity that understands itself as the church will try to be the place where people hear and God speaks...the preachers of religion do not know..that in the service of the one true God we are all poor, that we have not found God and never will, that we can never do more than wait for God to find us. Knowing this poverty, Christians know their solidarity with communists, fascists, and the adherents of all other religions. They share the same need and realize there is only one hope. They share the questions, to which the religions, to the curse of humanity, can give only their sinister, demonic, and false answers. Those who believe in God's revelation..are automatically bound up, as it were, with all the others..Bound up with them, they can speak to them with authority. If the church listens to God's Word, it is the church and not a society engaging in propaganda. It has a mission; it is sent.."--Editors Rolf Joachim Erler & Reiner Marquard withG. Bromiley noting Barth's comments on "Fragen an das Christentum" in Zofinger Zentralblatt, 1931 (via A Karl Barth Reader, Wm. B Eerdman's Pub. Co., 1986, pp. 21, 22) [more from Karl Barth]

"The sweeping action of the kingdom of God, through the mission of the church, will inevitably overtake [the religions].The Gospel cannot be preached to all nations without encountering all the religions..the church cannot escape a confrontation with world religions..Not only persons are changed through missions, but history itself is forever altered."--©1993 Clark Pinnock, A Wideness in God's Mercy, p. 118
