CAN CHRISTIANITY SURVIVE TRUMP? BART EHRMAN RABBI BIRNHOLZ

Christianity

Can Christianity survive Trump? How is it that against all odds, Judaism has survived? A look at religion in these fractious times when joining Halli at her table on TALKish, The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com is controversial historian Bart Ehrman, the author of THE TRIUMPH OF CHRISTIANITY and Rabbi Michael Birnholz of Temple Beth Shalom Vero Beach, Florida.

In his new book THE TRIMPH OF CHRISTIANITY, Bart Ehrman – a leading authority on early Christianity – investigates the story of how Christianity grew from a religion of 20 or so peasants in rural Galilee to the dominant religion in the West in less than 400 years. He opines that Christianity didn’t have to become the dominant religion in the West. It easily could have remained a sect of Judaism fated to have the historical importance of the Sadducees or the Essenes. Instead, the religion, whose first believers were twenty or so illiterate day laborers in a remote part of the empire became the official religion of Rome, converting some thirty million people in just four centuries becoming what Ehrman says is the single most important cultural transformation our world has ever seen—one that revolutionized art, music, literature, philosophy, ethics, economics, and law. After Trump, can Christianity survive? The controversial BART D. EHRMAN is the author of more than twenty books, including the New York Times bestselling MISQUOTING JESUS and GOD’S PROBLEM. He is the James A. Gray Distinguished Professor of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and is a leading authority on the Bible and the life of Jesus. He has been featured in Time and has appeared on Dateline NBC, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, CNN, the History Channel, NPR’s Fresh Air, and more.

ChristianityRabbi Michael Birnholz arrived at Temple Beth Shalom in Vero Beach, Florida in 2002 following his ordination from Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion. Over the years that Rabbi Birnholz has served the Jews in the largely rural Indian River County, Florida, he has enthusiastically shared his ruach and koach – spirit and strength – with the many diverse generations and facets of the Jewish community. He has participated in a wide variety of opportunities to teach and preach Jewish values and wisdom not only to his congregation but to the diverse community. How have the Jewish people survived against all odds? Is the Rabbi worried about the rise of anti-Semitism at home and abroad? What is the meaning of Passover? Is organized religion losing its way?

Can Christianity survive Trump? Do not miss this astonishing and honest conversation. Religion, spirituality, evangelical Christians, Judaism, politics, Bible, Trump on TALKish, The Halli Casser-Jayne Show with historian and author Bart Lehrman and Rabbi Michael Birnholz, the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

PROOF OF GOD

Written by Halli Casser-Jayne on . Posted in HC-J Blog

Proof of God

Proof of God. The age-old question: Is There A God? Or how about: Is God a woman? For centuries, these fundamental questions have been integral to every culture and religion the world has known.  Talkish, The Halli Casser-Jayne Show tackles these questions and more when joining Halli is astrophysicist Dr. Bernard Haisch, co-author of PROOF OF GOD and Isabella Price author of GODDESS POWER.

In the new book, PROOF OF GOD: THE SHOCKING TRUE ANSWER TO THE WORLD’S MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION, New York Times bestselling author Ptolemy Tompkins join forces with internationally acclaimed astrophysicist Dr. Bernard Haisch to demonstrate that not only is God real, but that it is science, itself, that proves it. “Bernie” Haisch is something of an anomaly – a respected, accomplished scientist who believes, firmly and fervently, in the existence of God. Of course, many scientists disdain faith, as there is no empirical evidence of Gd, and many Christians fear science, which they believe contradicts their beliefs. But the truth Bernie argues in this book is that you cannot understand the universe without acknowledging that the evidence of God is clear in the very make-up of our world. Science and faith, Bernie Haisch believes, are two sides of the same coin.

Proof of God

What if today we learned, definitively, that God is a woman? Why do most of us conceive of God as a man, God the father, of God ruling with testosterone? Suppose, just suppose, God is a woman and all that implies: the feminine of love and healing, birth and death, renewal and evolutionary change. Would there be a complete paradigm shift? In GODDESS POWER, AWAKENING THE WISDOM OF THE DIVINE FEMININE IN YOUR LIFE, author Isabella Price takes readers on an empowering journey into the heart of the Goddess traditions and the rich history and wisdom teachings of the Divine Feminine /Goddess in her numerous manifestations. Price explores Goddess symbols, stories, and key themes, as well as offers valuable spiritual insights on the role the Goddess plays in people’s lives today.  At the root of our cultural challenges, posits Price, lies the imbalance between the “masculine” and the “feminine.” That most of our political, economic, and religious institutions have, for a very long time, been shaped by the “unhealthy masculine” or patriarchal values of conquest, domination, control, competition, authoritarian power structures, dualistic thinking or separation between “us” and “them,” “me” and “the other,” “winners” and “losers” — that these unconscious assumptions and beliefs have shaped the way we think, speak, and act.
