Throughout the history of Christianity, many have criticized Christianity, the church, and Christians. Some criticism specifically addresses Christian beliefs, teachings and interpretation of scripture. The formal response of Christians to such criticisms is described as Christian apologetics. Several areas of criticism include some claims of scripture itself, ethics of biblical interpretations that have been used historically to justify certain attitudes and behaviors, the question of compatibility with science, and certain Christian doctrines.

Famous quotes containing the words criticism of, criticism and/or christianity:

    Cubism had been an analysis of the object and an attempt to put it before us in its totality; both as analysis and as synthesis, it was a criticism of appearance. Surrealism transmuted the object, and suddenly a canvas became an apparition: a new figuration, a real transfiguration.
    Octavio Paz (b. 1914)

    Good criticism is very rare and always precious.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The conversion of a savage to Christianity is the conversion of Christianity to savagery.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
