      The late Dr. Antony Flew—perhaps the greatest among atheist thinkers of the last years—came to faith in God largely through his studies in philosophy and, most especially, science, as he recounted in his book written with Roy Abraham Varghese, There is a God: How the World’s Most Notorious Atheist Changed His Mind. It was in that Dr. Flew rocked the world with his confession.   Thus Christian thinking must surely subordinate all other endeavors to the improvement of the mind in pursuit of truth, taking every thought captive to Jesus Christ (2 Cor. ). At three places in the book of 2 Corinthians, Paul reminds us that we cannot presume that our .

    IMMORTALITY AND THE AFTERLIFE. Modern thinkers often begin their discussions of immortality and the afterlife with Plato, (c. – or b.c.e.) which makes sense given that his Republic is one of the most influential works in Western philosophy. However, his view on immortality is not as straightforward as some take it to be. (Augustine mocks this belief in Book ) Manichaeism had a strong missionary element, so it spread rapidly through the Middle East. Because Manichaeism had absorbed some elements of Christianity, it appealed to many mainline Christians. The Manichees, however, viewed Christianity as a flawed and incomplete religion.

      Whenever Christians talk about their faith with other Christians or with non-Christians the Bible is there, either as an overt discussion topic or as part of the background noise in the room. Many followers of Jesus assume that everyone believes everything about the Bible that they believe about the Bible, which makes for some very messy miscommunication and far too Continue Reading The belief in the immortality of the soul came to the Jews from contact with Greek thought and chiefly through the philosophy of Plato, its principal exponent, who was led to it through Orphic and Eleusinian mysteries in which Babylonian and Egyptian views were strangely blended.

Christianity - Christianity - The immortality of the soul: Human beings seem always to have had some notion of a shadowy double that survives the death of the body.

But the idea of the soul as a mental entity, with intellectual and moral qualities, interacting with a physical organism but capable of continuing after its dissolution, derives in Western thought from Plato and entered into.

Be the first. Personal immortality. The concept of "personal immortality" is a core belief within the Christian tradition.

Something of the individual survives death forever. Many people expect to enjoy a reunion with loved ones. This expectation obviously assumes the continuation of personal identity.

Immortality is eternal life, being exempt from death; unending existence. Some modern species may possess biological immortality. Certain scientists, futurists, and philosophers have theorized about the immortality of the human body, with some suggesting that human immortality may be achievable in the first few decades of the 21st advocates believe that life extension is a more.

With the birth of the Christian religion the doctrine of immortality took up quite a new position in the world. It formed the foundation of the whole scheme of the Christian Faith. No longer a dubious philosophical tenet, or a hazy popular opinion, it is now revealed in clear and distinct terms.

Greece.—The Greeks seem to have been among the first to attempt systematic philosophical treatment of the question of immortality. Belief in a future life is clear in Homer, though the character of that existence is vague. Pindar’s conception of immortality and of its retributive character is more distinct and also more spiritual.

I have dealt with this matter in some detail in my book, The Bible & Science (chap “The Bible and Modern Psychology,” ff). The terms “soul” and “spirit,” therefore, on occasion can refer to the same aspect of a person (cf.

Compare major beliefs of seven different Christian denominations: Anglican / Episcopal, Assembly of God, Baptist, Lutheran, Methodist, Presbyterian, and Roman Catholic.

Christianity is an Abrahamic monotheistic religion based on the life and teachings of Jesus of adherents, known as Christians, believe that Jesus is the Christ, whose coming as the messiah was prophesied in the Hebrew Bible, called the Old Testament in Christianity, and chronicled in the New Testament.

It is the world's largest religion, with about billion followers as of   5 stars for topic - immortality - I started hoping for it when I was not even six years old; 5 stars for treatment -The Book of Immortality sounds like a heavy meal but in fact, the author's approach makes his findings easy going down.

And 5 stars to the writer for making me laugh quite frequently. Never translated before, 'Thoughts on Death and Immortality' was the first published work of Ludwig Feuerbach (). The scandal created by portrayal of Christianity as an egoistic and inhumane religion cost the young Hegelian his job and, to some extent, his career.

Joining philosophical argument to epigram, lyric, and satire, the work has three central arguments: first, a. Since this book is subtitled The Science, Belief, and Magic behind living forever, I was actually expecting it to be about that. Instead, most of this book was about the author's personal relationship with science, belief, and magic, often having nothing to do with immortality whatsoever/5(29).

The belief in a natural Immortality was one of the few basic "dogmas" of the enlightened Deism of that time. A man of the Enlightenment could easily dismiss the doctrines of Revelation, but could not afford any doubt on the "truth" of Reason.

Christian mortalism incorporates the belief that the human soul is not naturally immortal and may include the belief that the soul is uncomprehending during the time between bodily death and resurrection, a time known as the intermediate state.

Immortality is a subject of fascination in literature, and for good reason. Who doesn’t fantasize, at least once, about defeating death. Oscar Wilde certainly did inwhen he wrote The Picture of Dorian Gray; the story of a man who could never get old, as long as his portrait kept showing his this fantasy is more complicated than it might appear.

"IMMORTAL SOUL" INCLUDED AMONG POPE'S "MONSTROUS OPINIONS."—With ironical permission Luther grants to the pope the right and power to make special "articles of faith" for himself and his own followers.

He lists five in the series, including the "immortality of the soul" as the fifth, all and each of which Luther expressly rejects. Next, tell us about Life After Death: A History of the Afterlife in Western Religion by Alan Segal, and the strand of soul and living on by religious promise.

In a way the Segal book is the perfect accompaniment to reading Gilgamesh, because he so brilliantly puts this into a broader book covers the ancient history of the near East, and the origins of the Abrahamic tradition of.The belief in the immortality of the soul came to the Jews from contact with Greek thought and chiefly through the philosophy of Plato its principle exponent, who was led to it through Orphic and Eleusinian mysteries in which Babylonian and Egyptian views were strangely blended" (The Jewish Encyclopedia, article, "Immortality of the Soul.

While there are spiritual aspects to the pursuit of immortality across most belief systems, I’m interested in the mortal and secular realm and how these dynamics are influencing modern western culture.
