THE ROMAN EMPIRE One rule of many races General peace and free intercourse the world over Fusion of cultures, traditions, religions “The marriage of East and West” THE OLD RELIGION (1) Its strength: in its ancient tradition in its splendour of art, architecture and ceremony in its oracles, healings and theophanies in its adaptability in absorbing all cults and creeds (2) Its weakness: No deep sense of truth No association with morality Polytheism The fear of the grave (3) Its defence: Plutarch—the Stoics—Neo-Platonism—the Eclectics THE VICTORY OF THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH (1) Its characteristics (2) Persecuted because it refused to compromise (3) The Christian “out-lived” the pagan “out died” him “out-thought him”

THE PROBLEM OF THE INCARNATION The approach is to be “a posterioria” In fact, God and man are only known to us in and by Jesus Only in Christ is the love of God as taught in N.T. tenable To know Jesus in what he can do, is antecedent to theory about him

Solution I just won't Go to Church Meditations on why and with what motive we participate in church. Are you part of the Redeemed? If you are, then how do you identify with that group? Isn't it by being a part of a group of the redeemed? (a church) Does God require you to congregate? Hebrews 10:24-25 What if there are no good churches around me? Corporate worship is essential in your Christian life. Edifying and being edified.
