New on Ebon Musings: The Pilgrim’s Progress

A new essay has been posted on Ebon Musings, a review of the famous Christian allegory The Pilgrim’s Progress. The review follows the book’s format in chronicling the journey of the main character, “Christian”, from the City of Destruction to the Celestial City, commenting on the trials and tribulations he experiences along the way, and concludes by summing up what the allegory teaches us about the nature of Christianity itself.

This is an open thread. Comments and feedback are welcome.

    “But what can the purpose of this be? Unless God is not omnipotent, he knows whether his followers will remain true without putting them through so much needless suffering.”

    You mean “Unless God is not omniscient,” don’t you?

    For the atheist parable that adam described, what about plato’s cave analogy? That describes the journey from intellectual imprisonment to enlightenment rather well.
