The Church Of God A Harmony That Offers Possibilities For...
Introduction One particular late afternoon of 33 AD there was that very day two men were going to a village named Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem, and they were talking with each other about all these things that had happened over the past few weeks . Just as these men that were walking down the street to the village of Emmaus, and they did not realize whom this Stranger wasÃ¢â¬ ¦ until their eyes were openedÃ¢â¬ ¦, so has the many debates of the Church fathers from the birth of the Church and written Word, and continuing even to this day. Some of the questions that would be asked of the Church fathers may have been: Is the Word or Kingdom future or present? Is it mystical, spiritual or material? Is it the church or the world Ã¢â¬âor could itÃ¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦From the very commencing of the Church with the flow of contemporary evangelical crusade, conservative Protestants have splintered, disputed, and shattered the Church, Word, who Jesus, who God, who the Holy Spirit is, and over the Heavenly Kingdom . The centuries of Church fathers and all following the second century seemed to not only debate the meanings of the Scriptures, but also questioned the reality of the Word as well. The 18th century marked the beginning of the great evangelical revivals surrounded by a number of protestant churches across the western world, in particular America and Europe. German theologian Friedrich Schleiermacher was born on 21 November 1768 in Breslau, Lower Silesia; he originated writing towards the end of the century, in a knowledgeable, intellectual, philosophical, devoted to religion with the encamp using the environmentally shaping by the Enlightenment Period . Schleiermacher was an early member of the Romanticism movement in Germany. He also attempts to Ã¢â¬Å"reconcile Ã¢â¬ Enlightenment thought with Protestant Christianity, and maintained a very subjective/relativist approach to theology and philosophy. Schleiermacher viewed Scripture i s therefore not normative, and sought to Ã¢â¬Å"rescueÃ¢â¬ religion from rationalistic attacks of skeptics
