RationalWiki Upgrade 2017

Since this morning, RationalWiki.org is running on MediaWiki 1.27.

This is a bit of a facade, since it's just a snapshot which Tim Starling imported and upgraded as a dry run.

This database will be dropped and recreated, so any edits you make will be lost. Sorry!

In addition, search and several other functions are not done yet and will give PHP errors.

Philippians is an epistle of Paul to the church in Philippi, in Macedonia, Greece. He claimed that he wanted to hurry up and be called home by the Lord because "to die is gain"[1] but at great personal sacrifice Paul decided to remain on the Earth so he could write more epistles.

The heart of this letter is Paul's theology of the atonement of Christ, who was equal to the Father but humbled himself and was obedient even to the point of accepting a death by crucifixion.[2] By so doing, he pleased God more than all of humanity displeased God through sin. Philippians forms the basis of Anselm's satisfaction theory of atonement, an alternative to the substitution theory of atonement which forms one of the five fundamentals of fundamentalism. Paul argues that Christians are to follow Christ's example by their own obedience.
