Confronting Christianity - Chapter 5 - Doesn't Religion Cause Violence?

These discussion questions are intended to help us think through the content of the chapter. Feel free to answer each question, answer only one, or simply use them as a launching pad for your thoughts.

- What are your general thoughts on the chapter? Any parts stick out to you?

- Have you ever encountered someone (or maybe you yourself), that struggled to reconcile the violent events that have occurred throughout the history of Christianity? How should we/can we respond to this struggle?

When considering the events that occurred during Hitler's regime (as well as many other historical events, IE; the violence of the crusades, Christian advocation for slavery, etc.) it is clear that “the Nazis mangled Christianity beyond recognition.”

- How can we guard against our own “mangling” of Christianity?
