The Shifting Center of Christianity

Saturday, February 10th, 2007

The 20th century and early 21st has seen the center of Christianity shift from the West (Europe and North America) to places like Korea, Africa and South America.  It has truly become a world religion and former missions have matured and become centers of the Christian faith.  In turn sending out their own missionaries and raising up their […]

Monday, February 5th, 2007

Sunday, February 4th, 2007

In the last article I presented an overview of the Gospel of Judas, based upon chapter six of Ehrman’s book: The Lost Gospel of Judas Iscariot.  I realize now that I should have included some kind of response and compared the contents to orthodox Christianity.  The following is adapted from an article I published in April 2006 when the […]
