This is my final post in my Theology vs. Undergraduate Philosophy Series ( When Theology and Undergraduate Philosophy Clash and St. Paul on Perceptual Plasticity and Theoretical Neutrality… Kind of. ), I promise! But I just can’t resist posting this final paragraph.
I really can’t believe that I ended the paper with the gospel and doxology!
Christian behavior is not merely about doing good works and adhering to a particular set of rules and regulations, it is about “doing things which bring God’s wisdom and glory to birth in this world.” (Wright 71) Christian theology says that Christians are a part of new creation, they are a part of God’s renewal of creation according to his original vision for creation. As Christians, God allows us to participate in His renewal and redemption of creation. Thus by living according to God’s original vision for creation, we proclaim the fact that He reigns. By having passions which fit into God’s original vision for creation we come alongside the voices of heaven saying: “The kingdom of the world has become the Kingdom of our Lord and of his Messiah, and he will reign forever and ever.” (Revelation 11:15)
Oh and again… (not to brag but just to show that University’s aren’t as “unchristian” as some say) I got an A on this paper!
