The Feel-Good Doctrine
By Diogenes ( articles ) | Dec 28, 2004
Read the entire Fox news interview, and-- basing your replies solely on the content of Cardinal McCarrick's statements-- answer the following questions:
- Is The DaVinci Code (mentioned twice by interviewer Chris Wallace) a good book?
- What is the evidence for a "revival" of Christian faith-- aside from that fact that most people see an upturn in the number of attacks on the faith?
- What moral laws does Christianity offer to guide personal morality, especially in the area of family life? Anything beyond the Golden Rule?
- What is the significance of Christmas for Christians, aside from the fact that it makes us feel good?
- If any sort of religious faith produces hope and affirms morality, why is it important to accept the Christian message? (Chris Wallace asked essentially this question; check out the answer again.)
- Does the Christian faith offer anything beyond an affirmation? What is "salvation?"
- In an interview about religious faith and the Christmas celebration, who is likely to mention the name of Jesus more than once: a cardinal-archbishop of the Catholic Church, or a secular TV journalist working for Rupert Murdoch? Go ahead: check.
