The Ever-adapting Religion
Lecture # 36
June 14, 2020 11:45 am. To 1:00 pm.
Our survey of Christianity has been along fairly well-lit paths, where historical evidence has been sufficient for us to observe the ways in which this religion has demonstrated a remarkable capacity for cultural adaptation. In this lecture, we will review that historical path and follow it briefly from the 16th century into the present. We’ll also examine the question of the religion’s fidelity to its own identity through all of its cultural permutations. In the end, we find this fidelity in the lives of the “saints”— not just those who are well known to us but those who sought to live by the gospel as they understood it and, by doing so, communicated something of its power to succeeding generations.
