It is hard to believe that more than a small minority of Korean Christian clergy would provide any support or encouragement for acts of vandalism against the sacred objects of another religion. Moreover, we are unlikely to find written instructions from Protestant clergy to deface Buddhist temples or statues. What we can find is evidence that a few ...

David Steindl-Rast, "Man of Prayer," in Thomas Merton, Monk, ed. Patrick Hark (Garden City, NY: Image Books, 1976), 90. The 1974 ed. doesn't have such a quote, so, considering the influence of Modernism (spec. religious indifferentism) on the post-Vatican II religious life, either Merton himself became a Modernist or the author interpolated that quote.

And concerning the resurrection of the dead, have you not read that which was spoken by God, saying to you: I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? He is not the God of the dead, but of the living. Matthew 22:31-32 Jesus is affirming that he believes in the God of the Jewish patriarchs, Holy men and prophets not the religion of ...

Yes, there is in Christianity something similar to the four sublime attitudes in Buddhism. Instead of four, however, there is one, and that one is composed of eight significant attitudes. Those eight attitudes are expressed in a Christian's lifestyle. In the apostle Paul's letter to the Christians in the province of Galatia, the apostle calls that one thing &...

Sister Simone kindly responded to my email asking this question. She said: "If I just said Holy Spirit, it would slide over like water. Also to an interfaith audience who doesn't necessarily hold a Trinitarian faith it seemed more inclusive to me. I also know that God continues to create us at every moment so it isn't just the "image" of God but God who ...

Yes and no. If you take those concepts in Christianity that are close to the four you list and break them into parts, then the difference will be seen. The parts are ideas (the Word), emotional response, will, spoken words and actions. Christians share a common set of writings (though interpreted with variations) that influence common ideas. Being human ...

The author of this article may know of some. It's also important to remember that piety or righteous living is not exclusive to those with religious titles. Buddhist monks and Buddhist faddists may hold a view of self-righteousness that deafens them to hearing the Word of God. They must become aware that the message of Christ isn't "follow me so that ...

Starting with Sacred Scripture, the old fancy Fr. Knox Bible available on New Advent says the kingdom of God is here, within you. [1] Luke 17:21 And that appears to agree with the notion that if you want to go looking for God you should start within yourself. But, lo, there is a footnote [1] ‘Within you’; the Greek might also mean, ‘among you’. And CCD ...
