    Hitchens asserts that there is no evidence for any of the "miraculous" claims about Muhammadand that the Koran's origin was not supernatural. The mindset in which the Bible is written is actually rather different. Thus, when we look for time we find it to have no real existence. People came to confess once a year, said their penances, were absolved of their sins and went on with their lives.

    I would feel immediately threatened if I thought that the group of men approaching me in the dusk were coming from a religious observance. This is another version of the fall from God's eternal, unified, and unchanging grace into the created world of multiplicity and temporality. You may not be ready to admit it now, but since God created you for relationship with Him, you will never be complete without Him. James in his book said as well: "What good is it if someone claims to have faith but has no actions to prove it? The poorest peasant had no hope of gaining a bishop's indulgence and so the rank and file lost faith in the system with attendance threatening to drop once again.

    I doubt that he will reclaim a single soul. A man's wisdom makes his face shine, and the hardness of his face is changed. If you want to understand God, then you have to see that everything He does is to further your relationship with Him, to draw you into higher levels of trust, or to partner with you in bringing other people into relationship with Him. God created the universe with a "word," but this word is not like normal speech. Studying the Bible shapes our attitudes and actions in ways we would seldom expect. If anyone wants to do his will, he will know whether my teaching is from God or I speak on my own.
