You can get a hold of me on MSN Messenger, at (I don't use the other one for MSN). When they came, they said to him, "Why did you administer a flogging to that man?" The goal of all apologetics is not simply to show that Christianity is true, but to produce faith in Christ (1 Corinthians 1—2) and to remove stumbling blocks to that goal (2 Corinthians 10:5). Other religions either tell us that suffering is an illusion or that it is God’s will.

As already discussed, during Jesus' lifetime the apostles anticipated great personal glory and exaltation when Jesus came into His kingdom.

Christ brought what Nietzsche called the dangerous �revolt of the slaves in morals� to the whole world (p. 19; cf. p. 21).

He says “the power that will reunite the [Catholic] Church and win the world is Eucharistic adoration. (FA, pp. 141-142) For readers who do not understand the significance of the papacy’s efforts to win back the lost brethren (Protestants) to the Mother of all churches (Rome) through the Eucharistic “Christ” and the new evangelization plan, please read Roger Oakland’s powerful expose, Another Jesus (we have several excerpts free on our site) The analogy of religion, to the constitution and course of nature: Also, fifteen sermons, on subjects chiefly ethical. That possibility must be faced if the quest itself is to have any meaning In the end, hope without truth is pointless Illusions and delusions, no matter how comforting or grandiose, are the enemies of those who strive for integrity in their knowing and being Statements such as “I like to think of the universe as having a purpose” or “The thought of an afterlife gives me peace” reflect mere wishes These notions do not address the truth or falsity of there being purpose in the world or of our postmortem survival, because there is no genuine claim to knowledge: a warranted awareness of reality as it is A hearty, sturdy and insatiable appetite for reality—whatever it might be—is the only engine for testing and discerning truth Truth is what matters most, particularly truth concerning our human condition in the world—its origin, its nature, its purpose (if any) and its destiny Knowing the truth and living according to its requirements should be the hope and aspiration of the reflective person Only our knowledge of truth—our awareness of reality, no matter how sketchy or partial—can help resolve the inner bickering between the claims of hope and the fears of despair The very concept of objective truth is under fire today Some esteem it as nothing better than a philosophical hangover from less realistic days, a chimera impossible to attain yet still alluring for too many (We return to these denials and deniers in chap 6 ) Truth may also be shunned in a more pedestrian manner Instead of being philosophically pummeled, the concept of truth may simply be shunted aside with a shrug and a smirk—as antique and extraneous to “real life,” which then is defined as little more than what lies within one’s short-term memory and what enflames one’s immediate expectations 2 Yet humans are privileged with the ability to transcend their immediate experiences and ponder other matters Such is the stuff of philosophy, literature, religion and late-night discussions in college dormitories (at least one hopes these still occur) Perhaps instead of our seeking a reason for hope or asking for life’s meaning or meanings, the situation is reversed Perhaps we are on the witness stand before the jury of life This is just how the late psychiatrist Victor Frankl put it in his classic work Man’s Search for Meaning: Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but rather must recognize that it is he who is asked In a word, each man is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible 3 “The gas chambers of Auschwitz, Treblinka, and Maidanek,” Frankl observes, “were ultimately prepared not in some ministry or other in Berlin, but rather at the desks and in the lecture halls of nihilistic scientists and philosophers ”4 As a prisoner of Hitler’s death camps, Frankl noted that those captives with a sense of meaning that reached beyond their immediate experiences maintained hope and dignity, even in their Nazi hell Those without benefit of this conviction tended to atrophy and die in the pressure cooker of evil, even if they were spared the gas chambers Nevertheless, one may live or die for a lie; one may hope in something that gives meaning, direction and even courage for life and be on the wrong side of the truth Zeal does not insure knowledge; in fact, zeal may serve as a beguiling surrogate for knowledge It may even blind us to what matters most—and destroy others as a result After months of meticulous C S Lewis writes of the temptations to avoid deeper matters through a fixation on “real life”—or the immediate stream of experience—in the first letter of his classic fictional work The Screwtape Letters (1942; reprint, San Francisco: HarperSanFrancisco, 2001), particularly pp 2-4 3 Victor Frankl, Man’s Search for Meaning: An Introduction to Logotherapy (New York: Pocket Books, 1959), p 172 4 Victor Frankl, The Doctor and the Soul (1955;
