Christianity In A One-Story Universe - Part 4; Christian Atheism
November 10, 2007 Length: 12:24
Continuing with his illuminating series, in Part 4 Fr. Stephen Freeman discusses those (both non-Orthodox and Orthodox) for whom knowledge of God is but a relationship with a book (albeit a sacred book) or with ideas about God. These people are what Fr. Freeman calls "practical atheists." "Although a person may espouse a belief in God, it's quite possible for that belief to be so removed from everyday life that God's non-existence would make little difference."
"I'm a college student about to graduate with a BA in history, and I have been interested in Orthodoxy for several years now. God willing, I will become a catechumen very soon! The music and podcasts uplift me at my Protestant university."
