christian adventurism is the origin of ungodliness
Posted 24 March 2013 - 05:22 PM
But anyways...as we asked in the other thread, what is meant by "Christian adventurism"? Could you give some background as to why you're even asking this question?
If you were put on trial for being a Christian -- would there be enough evidence to convict you?

“...[T]his is love. I have my self-consciousness not in myself but in the other. I am satisfied and have peace with myself only in this other and I AM only because I have peace with myself; if I did not have it then I would be a contradiction that falls to pieces. This other, because it likewise exists outside itself, has its self-consciousness only in me; and both the other and I are only this consciousness of being-outside-ourselves and of our identity; we are only this intuition, feeling, and knowledge of our unity. This is love, and without knowing that love is both a distinguishing and the sublation of this distinction, one speaks emptily of it.” — G.W.F. Hegel

A Christian is a follower of Jesus Christ.
Ungodliness is any lack of conformity to or transgression of the law of God.
The answer is a simple "no". Ungodliness did not begin with anything Christian. It started with pride; Adam and Eve ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, an act that transgressed the law of God. Ungodliness began with DISOBEDIENCE to God, because that is what ungodliness is.
