Steps We Must Take to Salvage Christianity from the "Christians" and Build a New World
Author: Dick Peterson
Pubpsher: Xlibris Corporation
This book discusses in depth some twelve doctrines that need to be removed from current rituals, hymns, and confessions of faith, giving scriptural references to support the removal. Further, the damage these old doctrines have and are doing to society is presented. According to the author, the dogmas need to be removed so the church that many of us knew as children and growing up can return to be effective in helping solve some of the major crises facing this world: the economy and the great financial difference between the rich and poor, the issue of war as a way to solve world problems, and environmental issues facing the planet. For people who see Christianity being stolen by the Christian Right (who still consider themselves Christian, who believe in the message of Jesus, and/or who feel a loyalty to the church they remember), this book is crucial reading to taking Christianity back.
