The Christian Trinity: God in Three Persons
The Trinity is one of the important doctrines of classical Christian theology in which God is depicted as being manifest in three persons: God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Three persons, but one God. Many find this doctrine confusing. Here's a simple, common sense explanation.
The Gods and Goddesses of Hinduism
Can a religion that affirms thousands, perhaps millions, of different gods and goddesses be considered compatible with Christianity? The answer is not as obvious as it might first appear.
Buddhism: Religion Without God?
Can a religion without a formal notion of God be considered compatible with Christianity? Aside from the obvious differences, what are the points of fruitful dialogue between Buddhists and Christians?
God and Science
Some see God and Science existing in a state of perpetual conflict. My own view is the opposite: appreciating both the scientific and the theological dimensions of understanding gives one deeper insight into the mystery of life.
God in the News
Sometimes it seems that the only news being covered by the media is that of war, violence, nuclear proliferation, genocide, political conflict and corruption in high places. Actually, there are quite a few examples to the contrary. The press is actively covering God, not to mention lesser topics like religion, spirituality, ethics and such, arguably in greater depth than ever before. .... So GodWeb now brings you the latest news stories about God and such, aggregated from major media outlets. The good, the bad, and sometimes even the ugly of humanity's search for the holy. It's all right here, updated hourly.
