What is Chrisitian Philosophy?

Christian philosophy addresses the theory of knowing (epistemology), the theory of reality (metaphysics), the theory of conduct (ethics), and the theory of government (politics). Each of these areas are equally strengthened by each other. The bible is used to support the belief that all wisdom and knowledge is revealed and came from God. Christian’s believe that the Word of God is represented within the bible from beginning to. Christians also believe that God is the Alpha and the Omega. In order to receive this gift from God, a person must acknowledge and be uplifted by God’s grace. God's grace is given freely and is open to everyone who chooses to follow him.

Ways Of Understanding God's Word

There at two ways that a person can develop an understanding of the bible. These include both dedicative reasoning and inductive reasoning. They both are very beneficial and neither is better than the other. Both also serve as a means to fully develop an understanding of God's word. When a person uses deductive reading, a conversation, question, or concern is discussed and verses from the bible are used to support the idea. When inductive reasoning is used, a scripture of the bible is read and examined to develop a better meaning of the scripture that was read.

Logic and Christian Philosophy

When logic is addressed with Christian philosophy, the law of logic is brought to light through various versus within the bible. Logic is another word for reasoning. The word Amen is used to express the agreement of what is said and supported by the bible. The bible addresses ethics when God provides the 10 commandment and distinguishing between right and wrong is greatly influenced by God’s commandments. In order to think logically about situations, thoughts, and feelings, a biblical understanding must be developed. While the 10 commandments is the foundation for logic, the Holy Spirit convictions followers of God so that they become more of an image of God.

Open Theism

Open theism acknowledges that God allows people to have free will and to make their choices about their life. Since people have free will, our decisions influence the type of experiences we are subjected to. These experiences involve a learning process and also allows for growth. When you read the bible, many of the passages discuss God’s foreknowing as well as predestine situation that must come to pass. As a Christian, we acknowledge that God is unchanging in all aspects. Christians also acknowledge that outside forces have no affect on who God is or his level of grace.

Isaiah 46:9-10 says “I am God, and there is no other; I am God and there is no one like me, declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things not yet done. Isaiah 48:3-6 I foretold the former things long ago, my mouth announced them and I made them known; then suddenly I acted, and they came to pass. For I knew how stubborn you were; your neck muscles were iron, your forehead was bronze. Therefore I told you these things long ago; before they happened I announced them to you so that you could not say, 'My images brought them about; my wooden image and metal god ordained them.' You have heard these things; look at them all. Will you not admit them? "From now on I will tell you of new things, of hidden things unknown to you.

Conclusion

Christian philosophy acknowledges that the bible is authoritative and divine. The bible is accepted as the truth and there is no question about what the bible says. Believers of the bible support that there is purpose. The first step of accepting this believe is accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior. Christian philosophy comes from biblical interpretation that can only occur when the bible is read and application. When reading, there must be an open heart and open mind in order to allow God to speak to them and have an impact within and on their life. Reading the bible and talking to God is also fellowship with God. This is how an intimate relationship is developed. When we fellowship with God, we allow for a relationship development be made. This is fundamental for a relationship with God.
