God’s Self-revelation: the Prerequisite of all Knowledge of God

“God is first of all the subject communicating knowledge to man, and can only become an object of study for man in so far as the latter appropriates and reflects on the knowledge conveyed to him by revelation. Without revelation man would never have been able to acquire any knowledge of God. And even afterContinue reading “God’s Self-revelation: the Prerequisite of all Knowledge of God”

No Word of God without God: No Self-Revealed God without the Word

“The beginning of the system proper is, in other words, the exposition of the two principia. Scripture and God, as identified, but not fully defined or exposited, in the prolegomena.

Based upon Paul’s argument in Romans 1 and 2 for what is called sensus divinitatis or the sixth sense which all mankind possesses recognizing God as the source of all things, we see in this passage that though mankind intuitively knows this truth, they do not understand it and change the glory of the incorruptible God intoContinue reading “THE INTUITIVE CONTRADICTORY MINDSET OF THE POST-CRITICAL CHRISTIAN”
