Christianity is a major world religion, and the religion of some 80 per cent of Canadians. Believers hold that the life, death and resurrection of Jesus in the first century AD, as presented in the Bible and in the Christian tradition, are central to their understanding of who they are and how they should live.
As the Messiah, or the Christ Greek christos"the anointed one," or "the one chosen by God"Jesus was to restore God's creation to the condition intended by its creator. Jesus' first followers included some fishermen, a rich woman, a tax collector and a rabbinical student - a diverse group of enthusiasts who scandalized their fellow Jews and puzzled their Greek neighbours.
They claimed that Jesus had accomplished his redemptive mission by submitting himself to execution as a state criminal and later rising from the dead. They argued that he was thus revealed to be both human and divine, and they invited all, not
Examples of world accommodating religious movements 1800 Jews, to join them in living as members of the Church Greek kuriakon"that which belongs to the Lord".
Christianity gradually became interwoven with the histories of numerous nations, especially in Europe, and developed its own history, gaining and losing influence in both secular and spiritual worlds and surviving serious schisms within.
Today the major divisions of Christianity, all well represented in Canada, are Roman Catholicism They have similar calendars of the church year, and all celebrate Christmas and Easter as the major feasts.
Sacraments religious acts regarded as outward signs of spiritual grace are practised by most groups, although most Protestants view only baptism and communion Eucharist as sacramental, whereas the Roman Catholic and Orthodox of world accommodating religious movements 1800 include as sacraments baptism, confirmation chrismationEucharist, penance, extreme unction, holy ordination and matrimony.
Religion is a response to ultimate questions, and it makes ultimate demands. What Christian in Canada can be said to be truly religious? Many Canadians are serious Christians, but although there is certainly a plurality of religious standpoints in modern Canada, there is no general acceptance of pluralism, even within the Christian community itself. All Christians look to the Bible, but Christians live different lives in the light of the Gospel, and Canadian Christians are far from a consensus that all ways are legitimate and worthy.
Nor do all Canadian Christians commit themselves to the same degree. Until the midth century, public rhetoric and fundamental laws took it for granted that Canada was a Christian country, but since the s there has been a significant shift away from Christian language in public life to more general affirmations that Canada is a country that recognizes "the supremacy of God," as the Constitution Act puts it. Buddhists and other nontheists chafe at even this mild declaration. But such vague public theism may wither away by the end of the 20th century.
Although one should not romanticize such beginnings, it is true that many early settlers of New France were motivated in part by religious concerns.
During the 18th century, both French and British governments took for granted the European tradition that political stability depends in part on the people's allegiance to one church, carefully established as an arm of the royal government.
kings were known as "vicars of Christ" long before the pope assumed that title, and many colonial administrators saw their own role in a religious light. But the notion of an "established church" was difficult to realize in Canada. In the first place, the established churches themselves, Roman Catholic and then Church of England see Anglicanismlacked the financial and human resources to bind together a scattered pioneer society.
Secondly, Catholic and Anglican bishops often had agendas differing from those of the politicians. Thirdly, people often turned for inspiration to religious leaders such as the mystical revivalist Henry Allinewho shunned political involvement.
Fourthly, from the common people's personal experience came religious responses and convictions only incidentally related to the rubrics laid down by church leaders; e.
Finally, the consolidation of Canada under the British Crown, effected by the Treaty of Paris increated a political entity comprising a highly diverse collection of Christians.
Clergy trained in the home country often accompanied the immigrants and, like the priests of Lower Canada, fought to hang on to their flocks and their distinctive traditions. During the early 19th century, independent religious revivals in Lower Canada, the Maritimes and Upper Canada [Ontario] greatly strengthened the hands of those churches that opposed the feeble efforts of the Anglican establishment to reproduce in Canada the hegemony it had enjoyed in Britain.
By the middle of the 19th century, public Christianity was taking shape. Universities, founded by particular churches in order to train indigenous clergy, received public support and began to admit students from all religious backgrounds, even while retaining their peculiar denominational leanings. There arose a public rhetoric that was often biblical e. The public calendar was marked by Christian holidays, particularly Christmas and Easter, and Sunday was traditionally a day of rest.
Elsewhere, mainstream Protestants as Anglicans, MethodistsPresbyterians, Baptists and Congregationalists came to an accommodation but frequently had acrimonious disputes with the Catholic minority.
French Canadian society adopted a defensively nationalist Examples of world accommodating religious movements 1800 see French Canadian Nationalismturning inward to consolidate a Catholic homeland while leaving the rest of Canada to more Protestant imaginings.
By midth century both Protestant and Catholic leaders began to realize that they faced a common adversary: Small-town parish and congregational organization failed to sink roots

The local congregation or parish remained the fundamental unit of organization, but church newspapers and lay organizations based on particular occupational groups or age ranges went beyond the parish. Church buildings became imposing, permanent and expensive structures, funded largely

Working-class Canadians then came to be seen as the object of missionary activity, which was sometimes through downtown missions. The urban threat to traditional ways brought Protestant and Catholic leaders together in support of Lord's Day Act of proclaimed ; see Lord's Day Alliance of Canada.
Respect for Sunday, the "Lord's Day," was hallowed by custom

Many of the furthest-reaching modifications to the Examples of world accommodating religious movements 1800, permitting more amusement and labour on Sunday, occurred during the two world wars. The changes were justified as necessary to the success of war efforts "to defend Christian civilization.
This "colonization movement" was more successful in novels such as Jean Rivard and Maria Chapdelaine than it was in practice. But there were often positive and unexpected results from such defensive responses — e. After the war the legislation withered away, but meanwhile the Protestants of the Woman's Christian Temperance Union formed the core of a movement that finally won the vote for women in see women's suffrage.
Protestants often began in the Temperance Movementthen moved on to broader concerns, ultimately forming part of the Social
Examples of world accommodating religious movements 1800 movement which spawned Protestant social activists ranging from those who stayed firmly within church structures, e. Gordonto others, such as J. Douglaswho found the left-wing Co-Operative Commonwealth Federation less inhibiting.
Catholic social activists were more likely than their Protestant counterparts to stay within church-affiliated groups, such as the various Catholic Action organizations and the Antigonish Movement. Catholic lay people had a great respect for the clergy but they were not puppets of the priesthood, as many Protestants thought. The Christian communities of the early 20th
Examples of world accommodating religious movements 1800 suffered many tensions.
Among English-speaking Protestants, the disputes that arose over the value of Examples of world accommodating religious movements 1800 Bible as history and over church involvement in social action sometimes created new institutional divisions e.
The Catholic consensus was rarely disturbed, but when it was, the results were briefly spectacular e. Most Protestant tensions were obscured by a series of movements toward union, starting in the midth century and climaxing in the foundation of the United Church of Canada. Jesus' call

It is remarkable that, although Canada's population is based on immigration from many different lands and cultures, almost two-thirds of its citizens claim to belong to three churches: Roman Catholic, United and Anglican. Nevertheless, diversity has thrived, largely as a result of the influx of numerous cultural groups and of ideas from outside Canada.
Ukrainians, Romanians and others have brought various Orthodox Church traditions with them. Mennonites and others with Anabaptist roots immigrated, as did Lutheranschiefly from Europe; Mormons came from the US. Jehovah's Witnesses and Seventh-Day Adventists are well established, and Holiness Churchessuch as the Salvation Armyhave a long history in this country.
Transdenominational movements are active as well: The Christian Church Disciples of Christthough considered a denomination, is committed to the ultimate unity of all Christians across denominational lines. In the wake of the Second World Warchurch leaders were confident in the strength of the churches: In the s it became apparent that conservative Evangelical and Fundamentalist Churcheswhose membership made up only a tiny slice of the population as a whole, were attracting as many Sunday worshippers as
Examples of world accommodating religious movements 1800 the mainstream Protestant giants combined.
The reason may lie in the nature of modern society in which, generally speaking, public life is secularized and religious life has become private. To secularize is to treat something as belonging to the world, rather than to God, and to judge the worth of things according to their usefulness in human activity. For example,
Examples of world accommodating religious movements 1800 Lord's Day Act is regarded as valuable because it gives workers a Examples of world accommodating Examples of world accommodating religious movements 1800 movements 1800 rest and therefore increases productivity, not because it honours God; religious education is good because it produces well-behaved citizens, not because it cultivates a person's love of God.
Christians have frequently adopted purely secular values in the course of defending public Christianity. Virtually every contemporary Canadian author who writes about the awe and wonder experienced in human life has only scorn for modern churches — an indication, perhaps, that few Canadians expect Examples of world accommodating religious movements 1800 find that which is "holy" in the churches. People have come to think of themselves as "real" or "themselves" only in private.
Elsewhere they take on roles dictated by the institution that sustains them: Only in the privacy of the home does the individual think that the real self Examples of world accommodating religious movements 1800. Within this private segment of modern life religion has become lodged. The movement of religion into the individual's private life helps to explain why religion in Canadian public life has gradually become secular or has simply why church attendance is seen to be less and important, and why private religious practices e.
few public issues seen to be clearly religious are closely tied to this private world of home and family: People who tell the census taker that they are "Christian" generally want to be married and buried in a church setting, but they often feel no urgent need to take a larger part in the life of the institution with its tradition of public responsibility.
Nevertheless, Christianity remains, its contours constantly changing. The Bible is still the basic reference point for all Christians, though they often differ widely as to how it is to be understood. International Christianity continues to influence what happens in Canada: The local parish or congregation continues as the basic unit Examples of world accommodating religious movements 1800 Christian organization in modern Canada, but the variety of views within congregations is often as significant as the divisions between the denominations to which the Examples of world accommodating religious movements 1800 belong.
The more liberal Christians often find support in the Examples Examples of world accommodating religious movements 1800 world accommodating religious movements 1800 of their denominational leaders, particularly those working in central offices, and tend to view the conservatives as too private; the more conservative Christians tend to view the liberals as too secular. Between these groups lies the broad "middle" of church membership, perhaps less intensely involved in the churches' institutional life, but providing stability at the centre.
Co-operation among churches is Examples of world accommodating religious movements 1800 through several Canada-wide coalitions devoted to Ecumenical Social Actionbut members of local congregations often feel alienated from these coalitions with their relatively progressive stances.
In addition, public prayer meetings frequently bring Christians together during urban crusades led by travelling Evangelistsor on special occasions such as Good Friday and Remembrance Day when Examples of world accommodating religious movements 1800 are held with local clerical leadership. The Eucharist Communion or Lord's
Examples of world accommodating religious movements 1800, the ritual sharing of bread and Examples of world accommodating religious movements 1800 that commemorates Jesus' crucifixion is seldom celebrated at such interdenominational gatherings, since the particular ways of celebrating that central and nearly universal rite remain closely linked with denominational identity.
But modern Christians in Canada are much more likely than their ancestors were to take part in another denomination's Eucharist, drawn by friendship or marriage to members of that congregation, and there are few clergy who would deny them access. Furthermore, these Christians are now much more likely to be favourably aware of the doctrines and practices of JudaismIslamHinduismBuddhismSikhism or the Baha'i Faithand possibly even of new religious movementsas practised by other Canadians.
To the extent that Canadian Christians have accepted the secularization of public life and the increasingly private nature of religious life, they have made a working accommodation to the peculiar nature of modern society. But the accommodation is inconsistent with a tradition whose favourite prayer says, "Thy kingdom come," and takes for granted that a kingdom is no merely private matter.
It is also inconsistent with the fundamental nature of itself, which aspires to knit everything together into one ultimately meaningful pattern, and which demands that things be holy as well as useful. Therefore it seems likely that Christianity will persist as a useful thing proper to the private lives of many Canadians, but challenged from time to time to be open to that which is holy and to be active in that which is public.

The early nineteenth century was a period of immense change in the United States. Economic, state, demographic, and territorial transformations radically altered how Americans thought close by themselves, their communities, and the rapidly expanding nation.
It was a period of great optimism, with the possibilities of self-governance infusing everything from religion to politics. Yet it was including a period of great quarrel, as the benefits of industrialization and democratization increasingly accrued onward starkly uneven lines of gender, race, and class. Westward distension distanced urban dwellers from bounds settlers more than ever up front, even as the technological innovations of industrialization—like the telegraph and railroads—offered exciting new ways to maintain communication.
The spread of democracy opened the franchise to nearly all white men, but urbanization and a dramatic influx of European migration increased venereal tensions and class divides. Americans looked on these changes with a mixture of enthusiasm and suspicion, wondering how the maxim fabric of the new realm would hold up to emerging social challenges. Increasingly, many turned to two powerful tools to help understand and manage the various transformations:

In contrast, modernists were firmly in control of the Methodist Episcopal and Episcopal churches by the s, because a large block of theological conservatives had left those churches in the late 19th century to form the Holiness churches and the Reformed Episcopal Church, respectively.

Nevertheless, diversity has thrived, largely as a result of the influx of numerous cultural groups and of ideas from outside Canada.

Individuals do not have to demonstrate their faith to become members of a church — indeed often they are born into it. In some churches, the practice of baptism ensures that all the children of existing members are automatically recruited before they are old enough to understand the faith.
In principle a church might try to be universal — to embrace all members of a society — but in practice there might be substantial minorities who do not belong. Churches are sometimes closely related to the state.
