In this fifth session of the Escondido URC Sunday School Class, Dr. Godfrey traces the long period of challenges to Christendom within Christendom, and the rise of the Enlightenment. The Enlightenment thought that Christianity was too focused on the world to come, and sought for happiness in this world through freedom, equality, and brotherhood, thereby creating a new religion.
This ultimately led to a revolution in France. Godfrey outlines that this new religion posed a significant challenge to Christendom as it became a conflict between nature and freedom and how they worked together. This has very important implications for our present conflict. Please take a moment to listen to Dr. Godfrey’s fifth session.
