Freedom and Authority in Religion


Griffith & Rowland 1913

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Freedom and Authority in Religion discusses several opposing viewpoints: that of not putting any authority into Christianity, and that of one-sided authority. Mullins defines the one-sided authority as that which comes only from a narrow scientific or philosophic standpoint, as he urges a more holistic view of authoritative religion.


  • The Modern Ideal of Freedom
  • The Consciousness of Jesus and the New Testament Records
  • The Interactable Residues of Science
  • The Unstable Equilibrium of Philosophy
  • Voluntarism and Authority, or the Religious Assimilation of Truth
  • The Principle of Authority
  • The Nature of Religion
  • Religious Knowledge
  • The Authority of Jesus Christ
  • The Place of the Bible in Christianity
  • Summary and Conclusion
