Many popular ideas about religion, in both academic and public discourse, are derived from clichés that should be avoided. Religion is the sacred. Let’s start with the easiest—a cliché that is the bane of many critical theorists—religion is the sacred. Though this cliché was popularized by scholars such as Mircea Eliade and Rudolf.

by Tenzan Eaghll. Note: This post is the second in a series that seeks to summarize some of the clichés associated with religion. It is framed as a critique of a article by Ninian Smart.

For the first post and a definition of cliché see here. #3 True Religion is about Peace and/or Religion is Inherently Violent. Did you know Carpocrates, a 3rd Century Christian Gnostic, suggested that.

The scriptural reasoning behind this cliche is often derived from Romans "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who.

The book clearly explains the methods and theories employed in the study of religion. Essays are offered on a range of topics: from the history and functions of religion to public discourse on. Our culture is full of popular stereotypes about religion, both positive and negative.

Many people uncritically Religion of cliche book that religion is intrinsically violent, or that religion makes people moral, or that it is simply "bullshit". This concise volume tackles 10 of these stereotypes, addresses why scholars of religion find them to be cliched, describes their origins, and explains the social or.

Clichés abound in Christian culture. Take this story, for example; the host of a Christian radio station was interviewing a young woman. She was a brand new believer, and the joyous enthusiasm she felt was bubbling up in her voice as she spoke of the profound changes happening inside was experiencing God and relating to him for the first time in her life.

And in that book Murphy looks at the history Religion of cliche book phenomenology, a lot of which puts a positive spin on religion: that religion is getting in touch with the transcendent; religion is a sort of happiness, etc.

Phenomenology of religion tends to think positively about religion. Religion, human beings’ relation to that which they regard as holy, sacred, absolute, spiritual, divine, or worthy of especial reverence.

It is also commonly regarded as consisting of the way people deal with ultimate concerns about their lives and their fate after many traditions, this relation and these concerns are expressed in terms of one’s relationship with or attitude.

The book relates the true tale of how the island of Malta (the stronghold of the Christian Knights who call themselves "The Religion") was besieged by the Ottoman hordes. The fictitious tale that runs parallel with this battle is about a man, Mat I am torn between giving four stars and five/5().

Actually, anybody who wants to write would probably be doing themselves a favor by tossing out their televisions and ignoring 80% of all Hollywood movies, which I recognize, is itself a bad cliche--the writer who doesn't own a TV and loves to remind people that he doesn't own a TV, typically in his holier-than-thou tone of voice.

I have written about this before — “10 Christian Clichés to Avoid Like the Plague” and “Stop saying God Bless You” — but I keep running into more Christian Clichés that I wish Christians would remove from their vocabulary.

Please note that as I point these out I am not trying to be critical of Christians. Instead, I am hoping to make us real.
