The Encyclopedia of Christianity in the United States outlines the myriad roles Christianity has played and continues to play. This masterful multi-volume reference includes biographies of major figures in the Christian church in the United States, documents and Supreme Court decisions, and information on theology and theologians, denominations, faith-based organizations, immigration, art—from decorative arts and film to music and literature—evangelism and crusades, women’s issues, racial issues, civil religion, and more.
The words of Mighty God are in the Old and New Testaments. His words are love letters to His human creation. They are about living on life on earth with satan and sins and redemption for salvation by establishing a direct mutual relationship with the Creator God who shows blessings every day and night. The complex process of being alive on earth is under constant attacks by satan while we are trying to prevent dangerous outcomes and not to fall into the abyss of satan. The humanity has been given free-will by God to choose either the just and right of “good” under the light of God or the dark and wrongs of the “evil” with satan. The Divine Power of God is on our side to protect while we are on a spec of dust of this universe in the eternal fabric of the space and time across the center of the incomprehensible unknown, the home of the Creator God Almighty. The creation of this universe and the earth we live on are the expressions of His Divine Love to become with us, He wants to empower us from within, with Love and never ending glory. He wants to separate satan’s evils from His star light goods. He wants us to have this short time on earth with ethical spirituality while we are on this tiny planet in circular motion around the sun of His.
Confession is a history of penance as a virtue and a sacrament in the United States from about 1634, when Catholicism arrived in Maryland, to 2015, fifty years after the major theological and disciplinary changes initiated by the Second Vatican Council. Patrick W. Carey argues that the Catholic theology and practice of penance, so much opposed by the inheritors of the Protestant Reformation, kept alive the biblical penitential language in the United States at least until the mid-1960s when Catholic penitential discipline changed. During the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, American Catholics created institutions that emphasized, in opposition to Protestant culture, confession to a priest as the normal and almost exclusive means of obtaining forgiveness. Preaching, teaching, catechesis, and parish revival-type missions stressed sacramental confession and the practice became a widespread routine in American Catholic life. After the Second Vatican Council, the practice of sacramental confession declined suddenly. The post-Vatican II history of penance, influenced by the Council's reforms and by changing American moral and cultural values, reveals a major shift in penitential theology; moving from an emphasis on confession to emphasis on reconciliation. Catholics make up about a quarter of the American population, and thus changes in the practice of penance had an impact on the wider society. In the fifty years since the Council, penitential language has been overshadowed increasingly by the language of conflict and controversy. In today's social and political climate, Confession may help Americans understand how far their society has departed from the penitential language of the earlier American tradition, and consider the advantages and disadvantages of such a departure.
