/christian/ reading 04/29/2020 (Wed) 23:19:43 No.28
Aside from the obvious, what relevant reads have you come across?
i received a lot of recommendations but sadly i cannot access that full list at this time, but seem to recall the name Alvin plantiga was thrown around quite highly
>>28 Why is atheistic liberal Enlightenment literature on that chart?
>>35 How did the Roman church end up with a marxist neo-pagan for a pope? When you walk away from Scripture as the fundamental authority of your faith and ex post facto anathematize the beliefs of the early church when those beliefs stand in contradiction to "sacred tradition" you end up idolzing vain philosophy over the carefully discerned truth of God.
>>35 Which?
>>39 Les Misérables. I've yet to read it, but I am loathe to, because I am aware of the context it was written in, and the general subject matter. Even if there are or appears to be Christian messages, Victor Hugo himself became increasingly anti-Catholic and deistic as he grew older. Even if you hate Catholicism, you cannot deny the man was hardly Christian. >>38 Are you a Protestant? >>28 But really, it's not just that. It is extremely questionable putting modern novels like Redeeming Love and The Shack in a list like that. Perhaps they may be good novels, but I highly doubt that. And while Lewis and Tolkien are better fits on the list, they make up too much of it,.
>>40 >Are you a Protestant? Not him but is that even a question?

>>41 Don't make assumptions. Even if it appears to be the case, in which case, prepare, but do not make the final judgement.

>>43 Yeah, I could be a Jansenist.
>>28 Just a quick look into some of the texts listed under the Fiction section, and it's clear that Les Miserables and Paradise Lost are filled with heretical nonsense (e.g. in PL, an angel discourages Adam from building a temple due to it being "idolatry"). Otherwise, there's some decent texts. >>33 This is a much better chart.
