A movement that seeks to retain religious and spiritual values of Christianity while
discounting the authority of the Bible. Its origins are in the
German Enlightenment, notably in the philosophy of Immanuel Kant and
the religious views of Friedrich Schleiermacher. Liberals claim the
Bible is merely inspired, not infallible. They prefer naturalistic
explanations of miracles or view miracle accounts as legend or myth.
They often deny or reinterpret in mythical terms such doctrines as
the virgin birth, atoning death, and even the resurrection of Jesus.
Liberalism has been most influential in mainline Protestant
denominations and is rejected in Evangelical and Fundamentalist Christianity.
A movement that attempts to unite theology with social and religious

de-emphasized or reinterpreted. Jesus and the Bible are defined and
interpreted in light of a class struggle, with the gospel seen

The term "lucid dreaming" refers to dreaming while knowing that you
are dreaming. The "lucid" part refers to the clarity of
consciousness rather than the vividness of the dream. It generally
happens when you realize during the course of a dream that you are
dreaming, perhaps because something weird occurs. Most people who
remember their dreams have experienced this at some time, often
waking up immediately after the realization. However, it is possible
to continue in the dream while remaining fully aware that you are
dreaming. (See Lucid
