These studies answer the following questions: christology (Christ is the Way, and the Truth, and the Life), theology (Where do we come from?), philosophy (Where are we?), anthropology (Who are we?), psychology (How are we?), moralitas (What are we supposed to be and do?), theory (What makes us tick?).
This subsite is meant to present my theological ethics, of which a beginning has been made here.
In this section we point to Christ Jesus as the center of the universe, to Him Who calls Himself the beginning and the end, the Alpha and the Omega. Further we attempt to establish definitions of the above given disciplines. When your heart and mind are upright with Christ, then also your other ideas about other matters will be good. But when your heart and mind deviate from Christ, then all your other theories will fall like so many domino stones.
Of course all disciplines overlap and are in fact dependent on each other. That awareness leads to synthetical thinking, as well as out of the box visions. But differentiating between things leads to analysis and to nuances in matters that provide new insights and details.
We will try not to be too theoretical, but to pass on handles on life. The N.T. uses the term 'taught of God' (theodidactos) and indeed that is the true theology of ethics. Not a dry and fruitless reasoning of a barren intellect, but the glorious knowledge of the heart and the mind that can infuse people with enthusiasm for their own lives and for those of their fellow men.
Let the reader be aware that all I am doing, really, is drawing impressionistic sketches. The whole oeuvre may seem impressive, but I do not pretend to having thought up a universal philosophy. The time to attempt to fabricate all inclusive systems is long gone. And rightly so, for only God Himself carries the universe by His own power. Moreover our lives must consist in a living relationship with the Lord Jesus. And because we are all unique, everybody is a mystery in a nutshell and every Christian lives his/her own life. Universal systems, most of which were proud rational attempts at playing god for all of us, are in fact empty deceit. All we can do is cover a little part of life. And I hope and pray that the reader might enjoy some of it and be profited. It is with these initial thoughts that we set out to begin this monumental task.
