I always thought the true meaning of the word 'Christian" was 'one who puts into action the words of Jesus of Nazareth." As one who greatly respects the pure teachings of this great philosopher, I sometimes find it amusing the many ways in which religion attempts to put its own spin on his words. Actually, the Judeo Christian Bible has been translated and re-translated so many times over the centuries that we don't really know exactly what he said. But when you look at the basics, it was just plain common sense.
Throughout the course of history, organized religion has faced many great challenges and criticisms. To this day it remains a constant subject of controversy. When we look back over the centuries, it's surprising to see how very little things have changed.
Especially for CHRISTIANS examines the thoughts of many of the great minds of yesterday and today. What did the Founding Fathers believe? What did the ancient philosophers think? What do many of our contemporaries think? Through their own words, voices from the past offer answers for the questions of today.
