Description : Each person is born in a circumstance which is not of his own choosing. The religion of his family or the ideology of the state is thrust upon him from the very beginning of his existence in this world. By the time he reaches his teens, he is usually fully brain-washed into believing that the beliefs of his particular society are the correct beliefs that everyone should have. However, when some people mature and are exposed to other belief-systems, they begin to question the validity of their own beliefs. The seekers of truth often reach a point of confusion upon realizing that each and every religion, sect, ideology and philosophy claims to be the one and only correct way for man. Indeed, they all encourage people to do good. So, which one is right?

Description : In today¿s world, the boundaries within which Christian theologians operate are becoming ever more permeable, and Christian theology is increasingly influenced and challenged by multiple ¿outside¿ factors. In Western Europe, two such factors stand out in particular: the so-called ¿turn to religion¿ in continental philosophy and religious diversity. Theologians working with contemporary continental philosophers and theologians engaging the multireligious world tend to work quite separately from one another. The aim of the present book is therefore to initiate a conversation between these two groups of theologians. The question of truth was chosen because it is both a key issue in contemporary-philosophical debates (in the continental and analytic traditions) and one that arises in complex and problematic ways in the praxis of, and theoretical reflection on, interreligious dialogue. Some of the pressing questions that are addressed by the contributors to this volume are: What is truth? What is theological truth? How does the issue of truth arise from interreligious encounter? To what extent can or should the nature of truth be discussed explicitly during interreligious dialogue? Or should the question of truth be rather postponed in the interest of successful interreligious encounter? Is there a hermeneutical concept of truth and, if so, how can it be of help for theological reflection on the question of truth and on the role and place of truth in the context of dialogue between religions?

Description : "Religions", Mahatma Gandhi once said, "are different roads converging to the same point". But in this stimulating assessment of Christianity, Buddhism, and Vedanta, Professor Burch develops the revolutionary theory that religions, starting from the same point, take divergent roads to different goals incompatible one with the other. Whereas Gandhi asks, "What does it matter that we take different roads so long as we reach the same goal?" Dr. Burch asks, "What does it matter that in taking different roads we reach different goals?" Religions, he maintains, do not have to fight each other because of their differences, or abolish their differences to avoid fighting. He is a firm believer in coexistence for religions. Ecumenicity is good "in so far as it means, on the one hand, cooperation with other faiths in their common concerns of social activities and resistance to irreligion, and on the other hand mutual respect for the other faiths themselves". Dr. Burch argues for the coexistence of three alternative Absolutes: Truth (or Absolute Self as ultimate reality) which corresponds to the religion of Hindu Advaita Vedanta, Absolute Freedom which corresponds to Buddhism, and love (or Absolute Feeling) which corresponds to Christianity. The religious quest requires absolute commitment to one or other of these irreducible alternatives; not to truth and freedom and love, but to truth or freedom or love. In his Foreword, Professor W. Norris Clarke, S.J., of Fordham University, subjects Dr. Burch's theory to the most rigorous critical analysis, but in the end invites each reader to make the effort himself of coming to grips with the author's profound and original challenge.

Description : Atheism Worldwide: the Final Truth about Today's Religions and Wars Religion has been a sensitive issue for centuries. Ever since the dawn of time, prehistoric people have created a system of worship to some deity. The deity itself may change from one culture to another starting from the sun worshippers, the Allah of the Middle East, Jesus Christ of the West and even the gods of Greek and Roman legends. Every culture has an own deity, their own rules and system of worship. Even before, each culture comes with their own sense of faith and belief that theirs is the right god, the omnipotent and omniscient one that provides them with their daily needs and guides them to a greater good. History also shows that even during these old times, the different faith of cultures have sparked debates, arguments and eventually violence in their believers. In modern times, you would think that this kind of problem has already been abolished. We would like to believe that humanity has already managed to reach a semblance of balance and understanding between different religions and the people who follow them. Unfortunately, this is not the case at all. As different religions started to sprout, individuals have become more divided, resulting to even bigger wars and loss of life. This is why it is not really surprising that some experts today are citing correlations between violence and religion. But exactly how true is it? More importantly, how large is the impact of religion in the thousands of wars the Earth witnessed during its existence of roughly 4 billion years? This eBook will attempt to discuss the concept of War and Religion and the intricate details leading up to it. The discussion not only aims to provide a clearer understanding of religion but also wishes to probe how this particular centuries-old problem could be alleviated. At the same time, the book aims to introduce new concepts, ideas and shed light to terminologies that are often connected with religion. Through this, readers would be able to grasp distinctions over different concepts such as spirituality, atheism, theism, faith, agnosticism and many more. Factual information along with philosophical ideas coming from scholars is also presented in a cohesive manner, allowing readers to arrive to their own conclusions. By the end of this book, the author is hoping to shed a better light on religion and how it relates to war and to peace as well.

Description : There has been much speculation and interreligious debates with regards to the number of possible ways that may lead a person to God and what the ways are. Most of the debates have been between Christians and Muslims, and between those people who think there is possibly more than one way to God, and those people who think that only one way is possible by which a human being may get to God, the creator for eternal life. How many ways are truly there to God, one or many? Any of these answers are easy to give but are different depending on ones school of thought or religious affiliation. The truth, or at least the honest evidence, is the only solution to the whole controversy so that peace may prevail for unity to be possible on the issue of the way to God. In this book, the honest evidence of truth of the number and identity of the possible ways to God is discovered by treading the path of neutrality for truth. It is high time we settled the controversy among the religions concerning the way to God.

Description : Only if, with regard to the diversity of religions, there are questions about truth and falsehood do we have a problem about the pluralism of religions and the unity of truth. That problem is not concerned with preserving religious liberty, freedom of worship, and the toleration, in a particular society or in the world, of a diversity of religious institutions, communities, practices, and beliefs. It is concerned only with the question of where, in that diversity, the truth lies if there is any truth in religion at all.

Description : Was Jesus a Zealot? Has the tomb of Jesus been discovered? Was Christianity an outgrowth of Mystery Religions? What is the relationship between Christianity and the Essenes or Gnostics? Did the Catholic Church create a Bible that is different from apostolic writings? These are some of the questions that have surfaced in recent years and that are discussed in this book. Warren's father was a deep thinker, a voracious reader and seeker after historical truths. He adopted many ideas that challenged traditional Christian views. He believed that religious and political institutions have altered history to reflect their views. While this is true to an extent, there are many solid facts upon which Christianity is founded that support the divinity of Jesus and his redemptive work on the cross. This book continues a dialogue between Warren and his father that spanned more than thirty years and began with Warren's book: "Truth Seeker: Objections to the Bible." This book is for those who have questions and problems with aspects of the Bible. It also debunks the ancient alien theory for the creation of mankind.

Description : This book deals with the intellectual aspects of having diverse religious expressions in proximity and the socio-political consequences. It provides a multi-disciplinary perspective on this complex subject, cross-fertilizing work on religious plurality with truth-claims from theologians as well as philosophers from the continental and analytic traditions. The book includes three major parts. Part 1 explores the ideas around religious diversity and truth; Part 2 draws out the epistemic import of religious diversity; and Part 3 concludes the volume by examining the practical and social aspects of religious diversity. Bringing a transdisciplinary perspective to a topic that remains at the forefront of conversation around the religious life of the world, this book will be of great interest to scholars of Religious Studies, Theology and the Philosophy of Religion.
