    What then is your answer to science wherein real knowledge resides. Doctrinal arguments about salvation, transubstantiation, the trinity, the divinity of Mary or Jesus, etc….what does it all mean in a modern world ruled by science, technology, and our capitalistic monetary systems? How is it relevant to anyone? And who decides what a Christian really is? Is a Mormon a Christian, is a Johovah’s Witness? Why can’t Christians come up with a set of statements which define themselves as a group….a cardinal list for all “Chritians?” The “church” is so fragmented and the beliefs so varied that the rock of Peter has fractured into dust and is being blown away by the wind of science and technology.

    I would disagree with you that science answers all our questions. In fact no scientist would make such bold claim and expect not to be challenged on it.

    [“Doctrinal arguments about salvation, transubstantiation, the trinity, the divinity of Mary or Jesus, etc….what does it all mean in a modern world ruled by science, technology, and our capitalistic monetary systems?”]

    I don’t believe in divinity of Mary, that is kind of what Catholics believe, This world is in need of some help and that can only be found with Christ. I can’t go into too much theology here but if you are interested we can look at each one separately but I need to understand that you are truly seeking not just proving a point. All of what you said still leaves many millions of humans in pain and emotional turmoil, so none of it really satisfies our soul, this is why we turn to art and religion.

    [“How is it relevant to anyone?”]

    If it is true then it is of enormous relevance as you would agree, it concerns your eternity.

    [“And who decides what a Christian really is? Is a Mormon a Christian, is a Johovah’s Witness?

    To put it simply read the Bible, New Testament in particular and you will find what it is to be a Christian. Look at Nicene Creed for the early church beliefs and anything that is deviating from that is new invention that can help you considerably in identifying real Christianity. There is a statement of faith on this blog compare that to the above creed and look for Biblical references. If you are really interested I can provide you with more information.

    But the Bible itself warns the church that there would be weed growing together with the “good seeds”. Symbolically this is telling us that there will be many “fouls brethren” or pretenders who are not really interested in Christianity.

    You do however bring many good and important questions that do need to be answered, with honesty and clarity. But you will have to either do some more home work or if you want my involvement I would like to know that you are serious about them.

    Kind regards
