"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    We are a community of confessing believers who love the gospel of Jesus Christ, affirm the Biblical and Christ-exalting truths of the Reformation such as the five solas, the doctrines of grace, monergistic regeneration, and the redemptive historical approach to interpreting the Scriptures.

    Philosophy of (The Christian) Religion

    Philosophy of (The Christian) Religion compiled by Paul Manata New Subsection

    Introduction: This is comparable to a book on the Philosophy of Religion. There are a few differences between this "book" and other books. You will notice that there are no (well, just one or two) arguments against the positions I've listed. This is because this "book" is also meant to substitute as an apologetics "book" for the Christian faith, hence the offensive nature. Furthermore, this "book" is intended to present the Philosophy of Christianity from a Reformed perspective and also a presupposition approach to answering many of these questions (or, what I feel is in the same “vein” as presuppositional-esk answers). I also included some dated (or, stated in a non-analytical way) statements of Omniscience and Omnipotence, the reason for this is because I feel that if one could just state the traditional reformed understandings of these doctrines one would avoid many of the so-called problems with these doctrines. I have also included "chapters" in this "book" that are not found in other Philosophy of Religion texts (e.g., Christian Theism and Abstracta). I hope this "book" serves to increase your understanding of the Reformed Faith (or, in other words, Christian Faith) as well as enables you to better defend it.

    I think this page would benefit from some of Gordon Clark's writings, especially in several of the chapters on the page. (Please don't allow this comment to start some party war. I only think Christians would benefit from Clark's insight on these areas.)


    Thanks for the thought ... Why would the comment start a party war? If you have been around long enough you would know that we have quite a number materials available on Gordon Clark in our essay section and in our bookstore. Its great material. The lack of his essays on the page is not a sign of dislike. no worries.

    Wow...that sure is a lot of material! All very interesting and very important. Collections like this make me want to quit my job and go into seclusion for a good long while, until I've read everything here and thought it through. Too bad I have a mortgage to pay! :)

    hi, i am actually a non-practicing southern baptist/foursquare gospel "believer"..these are the churches i was taught in, but i do not believe all the teachings...

    i am looking to reform the christian church by discrediting current interpretations of the bible in a historical AND spiritual context..

    anyone wanna talk to me about it? anyone doing similar? i'm sorry if i am not following proper posting procedure, for i have just come upon your site.

    thank you for your time,
    toni g. rilla
