TEST RELIGION - PUT FAITH CLAIMS TO THE TEST

testreligion.com 

In the big picture, is faith in God, revelation from God and prayer worth it?

Do  you think of how challenging superstition or faith protects many vulnerable people?

If people do good because they are human and not because God prompts them then is it right to risk giving God any credit when they alone own their good?

Lesson of the Week

Peter urged battered slaves to put up with their troubles because Jesus taught that God approves of a person who won’t protest when they are abused (1 Peter 2:18-20). He was more concerned about the rights of the evil masters than the victims. If you are a slave and you accept and are resigned to your lot and would consent if you could, that does not make you guilty. The owner is. Some say you are not equally guilty as the owner. Some say because it is your choice you are worse than the owner and it is you degrading the owner by letting them take advantage.  However by becoming resigned the slave will feel it is their own choice.     The master will feel he is not oppressing the seemingly willing slave.  These feelings are the reason why slavery became so accepted.    Peter was part of the problem.  The Church says Peter was the first pope and it says the pope is by default the father of all Christians.  How can this man be father of anybody?  Remember that if the slave objected or protested when abused this would lead to further abuse from the master.  Peter is clearly not thinking of that but of slaves who protest as in try to escape or get out of their situation.  Interestingly, the text shows that the early Church did NOT believe that water baptism made you a Christian for if it did the masters would not be letting their slaves have it.  Pagan and Jewish masters had a problem with the Christian claims.  It fits the notion of people converting without the Church being the in-between.
