The Defining Path Rising from a single, original body Christianity today consists of many different denominations . The reason for the reconstruction of Christians is due to disagreements and disapproval of ongoing acts within the mainframe of the church . Theologians such as Friedrich Schleirermacher and Karl Barth were instrumental in initiating such disagreements because of their respective disapprovals for church mandates and orders . Both Schleirermacher and Barth have differing opinions of what religion is, and each validate their claims scripturally . What best uncovers religion’s true meaning is a blend of both Schleirermacher and Barth’s deviation from what originally was practiced . Lost between the metaphysical and the moral, and the “Divine Revelation” is the discovery of humankind’s own religion . Religion according to Friedrich Schleirermacher is the dualistic marriage of strict moral bindings and comprehension of the infinite . This comprehension of the infinite is a metaphysical understanding of what is there but cannot be touched, which is religion .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
