HOW CHRISTIANITY HAS AFFECTED SECULAR HISTORY

What would life be like if Christ had not come and Christianity had not spread throughout the world?  It would most likely be much different.  Although Greece gave western civilization much art, philosophy and literature, and Rome provided law and government, it was the Christian world view that provided the basis for modern science, efforts to alleviate poverty, universal education, and the ideals of equality and liberty enshrined in the documents of the many governments.  The God of order and beauty provided for the view that nature was predictable and orderly.  The Christian belief that all humanity is a creation of God gave a foundation to the self-evident truth of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.  Since people are made in the image of God, they are valuable apart from their station in life, amount of wealth, or utility to society.  People are helped, educated, and protected simply because they are made in God’s image.  Loss of these Christian ideals world undoubtedly be a tragic loss to the well-being of humanity.

  10. Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, fantastic blog!
