Stain Glass Theory: using melting lid to create piece of glass together but contains
individual differences; idea that something connect them all
William James:
World of experience as itself are mosaic he thinks that mosaic are not the idea of
stein glass but rather glass itself are melted and connected to each other
Therefore, each perspective are not independent but rather bleeds into each other

Missionary Component
Christianity is a missionary religion****
That means: messages need to be broadcast, widely and universally
3 traditional religions include: Christianity, Islam and Buddhism (the messages of
them are universal, to make it number grow)
Why does it matter for the # to grow? Whats the significance?
1st Spreading the right idea: if you believe, try to make others to believe it as well
2nd number= power; more supporters of this perspective
And it make it the true religion=successful
Judaism is not actively seeking to increase its number and thus, it is not a
missionary tradition
Christianity: exist in Holy Book, story and messages tell us to spread this
religion/message
Ex. Story of Pentecost (occur when Jesus enters to heaven, group of disciples gather
around and dont know what to do, God occur in fire enables each of them to speak in
different languages)
God empowers them to speak verities of language, they can spread these messages
through the gift of language; it is a powerful story

All Roads lead to Paul
The Tower of Babo : group of people gathered and idea of building a tower, its going
to be so high and people can reach to heaven but it fails
Basic idea: lack of communication
Paul:
Characterized as the founder of Christianity
His literatures and him are important in forming the church
CEO (through these small communities and to consistent their practice)
Jewish and Gentile Christianity
Suggesting that Christianity can be a traditional for gentile
At the time, people in this religion all speak Greek; one language makes this spread
successful
Historically, Christianity emergence as a non-Jewish religion from a sect from
Judaism
Christ: As Redeemer
Practice of Paul:
Not consider daily practice of Jesus, tend to focus more on the nature of Jesus (his
actual divine status)
Paul empathises cosmic sense of Jesus= Christ the divine being; Christ the son of
God and the sacrifice of Himself
Sinners: God sees us as sinners and accept us
Rightness (important rather than law)
Commandments are important and Jesus are important too, we need to follow him
and understand his teaching
Faith
Christ is a cosmic messiah
Sin requires resolution
Ex. Adam and Eve (sin)
Christianity: it is part of us and helps to explain Jesus here to wipe out our sin
