Is Christianity a dangerous problem or the solution to our search for lasting contentment?
Religion causes so many of humanity’s greatest problems. Division. Intolerance. Conflict. We no longer think that faith is a harmless choice; it is now seen as a dangerous delusion. And yet, religious people report higher levels of personal satisfaction and meaning. How can both be true? Is Christianity part of the problem or is it the solution?
