The True Religion of God

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?

Vitz maintains that psychology in our day has become a religion, a secular cult of self, and has become part of the problem of modern life rather than part of its resolution.

This 1913 volume discusses several religions whereby believers worship the dead both in hopes that the dead will bless their futures and in hopes that the dead will rise up to bless the living. This concept of the undead or dead rising again is present in some capacity in many religions, even mainstream ones like Christianity (i.e. the resurrection). This volume highlights those beliefs among the Aborigines in Australia, New Guinea and Melanesia.

In a time of increasing cultural pluralism and vast religious restructuring in the United States, Christian social ethics must take account of how values and commitments shape Christian communities. In Public Worship and Public Work Christian Scharen examines theological claims about the relationship of worship and ethics by means of ethnographic study of the life, worship, and work of three vibrant congregations. Public Worship and Public Work moves beyond two caricatures of the relationship between worship and social ethics. Rather than resolute portrayals of the Church as a reflection of its culture and context and causal accounts of the Church?s liturgy forming a Christian witness over and against culture, this book lifts up congregational identity as an area of dynamic interaction between worship, social ethics, and culture. Chapters in Part One are ?Liturgy and Social Ethics: Characterizing a Debate,? and ?Sociologizing the Debate: Identity, Ritual, and Public Commitment.? Chapters in Part Two, Three Case Studies in Atlanta?s Old Downtown are ? ?People Living Church?: The Catholic Shrine of the Immaculate Conception,? ??Jesus Saves?: Big Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church,?? and ??The Church at Work?: Central Presbyterian Church.? ? Part Three concludes with ?The World in the Church in the World.??Public Worship and Public Work is an exceptionally well researched and carefully written title examining the dynamic interplay between ritual and social commitment.? Catholic Library World?What difference does it make for the persons we become and the society we shape whether and where we pray, what we pray for, and how we worship together? This lovely, masterly work reveals how liturgy animates moral character and inspires civic commitment in three distinctive downtown churches. In living color it sheds brilliant new light on these axial mysteries at the crossroads of practice theory and virtue ethics, moral theology and liturgics, congregational studies and the dramaturgic study of religion. Amen!? Steven M. Tipton Emory University Co-Author, Habits of the Heart?This is a helpful book which adds thought-provoking insight into the way churches, and people in churches, involve themselves in the community. Worship is not discarded here in favor of social influences but rather is viewed as affecting people in the midst of and in conjunction with the many conditions that influence human beings ?in the world.? The examination of these complexities and the resulting model for study are useful additions to how we view the connection between liturgy and ethics. The descriptions of the congregations are compelling works in themselves.? Catholic Studies
