Transcendentalism The Transcendenatlism views come from a philosophical and literay movemenrt from 1836-1860 The Transcendentalists have many views that oppose Christianity including that humans are born good and that the world corrupts them Some other views include that human intuition is the highest source of knowledge and they put a lot of emphasis on individualism self reliance and rejection of traditional authority As Christians we believe that we are born into sin and can only be saved through God The Transcendentalists believe that we are born good and the world and the society that surrounds us corrupts us Being Christians we know that this is not true because of Adams sin he cause the fall of mand from being perfect which means the only way to become good like Christ is accepting Him into your heart The second belief of the Transcendentalists is that human intuition is the highest source of knowledge This completely goes against Christianity because we know that only God is omniscient If we as humans knew all there would be no need for God to govern us We could simply do whatever we wanted whenever we wanted or we would be able to choose what and what not to do because we would know exactly what the consequences would be The Transcendentalists also put a lot of emphasis on individualsim self reliance and the rejection of authority In the Bible one of the commandments is to Honor your Father and Mother The Bible also states that we should respect our elders and those in authority over us and the rejection of authority is a direct rejection of Gods Word All in all almost every belief of the Transcendentalists goes directly against Gods Word and Laws Only through God we can achieve perfection not through our own rational thinking or because we are perfect creatures We are not perfect beings we do not know all and we need authority
