"Replica from the Evangelical Alliance about the need for christianity in suburbia"
"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."
"REPLICA. Niels Paarup-Petersen (C) opposed to ”more religion would be a solution to the suburbia problem”. As a christian, I am skeptical to see faith as a state policy instruments. Christianity is about ”God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son”. Not to educate good citizens, cultural heritage, or the equal value of all people. It has been implications of the christian faith. "
"However, Paarup-Petersen, at least, two mistakes."
" first, he makes a kategorifel. He sees ”communities are built, not on religion, but on liberal values” that more free. "
"But to ask ”religion”, an overly broad category, against ”liberal values” is to compare apples and pears. "
"the Debate concerning a specific belief – christianity – with specific försanthållanden of human nature and the ultimate reality, which is not shared by all religions."
"secondly, Paarup-Petersen turns a blind eye to history. In the Monty Python film ”Life of Brian”, asks John Cleese character rhetorically: ”What have the romans ever given us?”. In response, he receives a long series of technological, academic, medical, and legal progress."
"the Criticism of christianity is reminiscent of this failed pep talk. At the same time is the usual. "
"Minister for higher education and research, Matilda Ernkrans, recently shared an article with the same kind of message: ”What has christianity ever given us?” A lot, actually."
"Ironically pointed out the renowned historian Tom Holland in The Spectator at easter, christianity's significance for human rights. In the World today, Dick Harrisson recently: ”no matter what you think about Jesus, God and the Bible, so has our western way of thinking very strong ties back to the notion of human dignity as found in christianity.”"
"That Niels Paarup-Petersen's estimates for ”a clear separation of church and state” is welcome. This idea was formulated by the baptistpastorn Roger Williams in the 1600s. "
"Everything has of course not gone straight in the history of christianity. But the options are hardly preferable. And surely, the christian churches, very good in Niels Paarup-Petersen's hometown, Malmö? Not least for integration."
