A Syrian poet noted that, "The world holds two classes of men - intelligent men without religion and religious men without intelligence." A Nobel Prize winning physicist, Dr. Steven Weinberg said, "Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion." Could they both be right? Or is it possible that we could have a Christianity that is intelligible, believable, and credible? In order for that to be true we would need to rescue our traditional notions and practice of the Christian faith from its ancient, fraudulent time warp. We need to help it remove itself from the cultural trance in which it exists, and the faulty beliefs which it holds. We continue to survive on and promote an ancient, discredited history of Jesus and the Church. The secular and Biblical Scholarship of the last 200 years has been largely ignored in today's Christian beliefs and practices. What we have today in Christianity is a distorted, disfigured and fraudulent hero of the Christian faith. We have numbed and parked our mental faculties regarding the historic knowledge of our religion, and the truthful, accurate, and proper exercise or practice of our religion. A Credible Christianity provides you with the best and latest scholarship, behavioral research, and psychological insight. Galileo, a hero of the Renaissance who was accused of sacrilege in his day said, "I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forego their use."
