Thomas V. Morris wrote "Our Idea Of God: An Introduction to Philosophical Theology" to provide non-specialists with an accessible introduction to philosophical theology. There are different ways of doing theology or rational discourse about by:   God is the greatest possible array of compossible great-making properties.

This is a toned-down version of his Logic of God Incarnate and in many ways it is just as powerful and more accessible. With the exception of his take on foreknowledge and eternity, I whole-heartedly recommend this book/5. Our idea of God: an introduction to philosophical theology.

Thomas V. Morris introduces philosophical theology, examining God's goodness, power and knowledge; God's. Thomas Morris’ book Our Idea of God: An Introduction to Philosophical Theology is not simply an introduction to philosophical theology.

It is also an exercise in philosophical theology. From the outset of the book Morris tells the readers that this book is “meant to serve as an elementary introduction to philosophical theology.”. The very idea of Scripture as a revelation presupposes belief in a God who can make it. Newman Smyth, in New Euglander, —We cannot derive from a sun-dial our knowledge of the existence of a sun.

The sun-dial presupposes the sun, and cannot be understood without previous knowledge of the sun.

If God is more than a mere name, a mysterious Other of whom we may predicate every possible perfection – from paternity and power, wisdom and justice, to love and mercy –then God is surely more than any sort of idea we may have of Him.

Besides, as Gregory of Nyssa warns, “ideas create idols, only wonder leads to knowledge.”. In the Hermetic Tradition, each and every person has the potential to become God, this idea or concept of God is perceived as internal rather than external. The All is also an allusion to the observer created universe.

We create our own reality; hence we are the architect, The All. Another way would to be to say that the mind is the builder. This book is not only a good idea to read as a family, it’s a delightfully great way to be part of God’s good idea.

Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character. In the Hebrew Bible the Book of Life—the book or muster-roll of God—records forever all people considered righteous before God.

To be blotted out of this book signifies death. Our Idea of God is one of those books which makes sense the first time you read it--but you know you must re-read and ponder it to fully appropriate the author's treasures.

An associate professor at Notre Dame, Morris writes within the context of modern thought. But he is steeped in the ancient Christian tradition as well.4/5.

In the third chapter of Book I, Locke concludes the discussion about innate ideas with an attempt to show that the idea of God is not innate. This is in many respects the most important part of his argument, for it was on the basis of a belief in innate ideas that so many of Locke's contemporaries had sought to prove the existence of God.

Zechariah and Proverbs outline the sins God hates—pride, lying, murder, false witness, those who stir up trouble, and those with evil in their hearts. We cringe at the idea of God actually hating, because we are more comfortable with Him as a God of love, which He certainly is.

Question: "What does the Bible say about Christian behavior?" Answer: When we talk about “Christian” behavior, we are talking about the behavior of those who have accepted, by faith, Jesus Christ as their Savior and thus are indwelt with His Holy Spirit (Romans ), making it possible for them to serve God.

Examples of Christian behavior are woven throughout Scripture. The positivists said that the God-idea is a meaningless problem since the idea of the term 'God' is not clear.

Thus there grew a variety of ideas and beliefs and names for the God-idea: pantheism, idolatry, belief in a formless God, belief in many gods and goddesses, etc. A New Way To Think About 'God': Cosmos And Culture All traditional ideas of God are demonstrably inadequate to our time; they perpetuate conflict or.

How Did God Get Started. COLIN WELLS. In his contribution to a groundbreaking book called Pagan Monotheism in Late Antiquity (), The question for Abraham was not whether God exists—our idea of what “faith” is about—but whether Abraham would obey God.

The question posed by Greek philosophy was whether the divine exists at all. God’s very good idea is to have lots of different people enjoying loving him and loving each other.

Aczel. But we have the idea of perfection, even if we do not fully understand it. Further, a cause must be as great as its effect. But we are finite; so our ideas are finite. So we can't make up the idea of perfection. As such, this idea of perfection must be imprinted in us, namely by a being that is actually perfect.

And such a being is God. Lecture I in my Psychological Significance of the Biblical Stories series from May 16th at Isabel Bader Theatre in Toronto. In this lecture, I describe what I consider to be the idea of God. yards have crumbled into decay, as our ideas of Life have grown more spiritual; and in place of "bat and owl on the: 9: bending stones, are wreaths of immortelles, and white fingers pointing upward." Thus it is that our ideas of divinity form our models of humanity.

O Christian Scien 3) Ideas are qualities, & [from 1] ideas cannot cause them-selves, so the cause of our ideas must be a SUBSTANCE. 4) Our ideas of sense have no dependence on our will, so they cannot be caused by us.

C) Therefore, another (more powerful) thinking substance must produce them, namely GOD. Teilhard, as he is called by those who know him, offers a truly 21st Century spiritual path to God that few people know about.

The basic ideas of this approach to God are found in his book, The Divine Milieu. Although the manuscript for this book was completed inhis revolutionary spirituality has remained relatively unknown to this day.

Finally, we saw that if revelation is to be possible from the side of God, certain things about God must be the case: for instance, genuine distinction from the world, personality, and freedom. if these ideas are not already part of our concept of God, then they must be integrated and rationally justified.

If ideas have something like gravitational force, then the idea of God is as powerful and massive an idea as any. A change in one’s notion of the divine shapes and re-shapes the other ideas that govern our lives—ideas about power, freedom, time, meaning, and politics, just to name a few.reduce our self-centeredness much by wishing or try­ ing on our own power.

We had to have God’s help. This is the how and why of it. First of all, we had to quit playing God. It didn’t work. Next, we decided that hereafter in this drama of life, God was going to be our Director. He is the Principal; we are His agents.
