Christian Theism

Theism means to believe in one god.  With Christian Theism it is obviously to believe in God, Jesus and the Bible.  Christian Theism can be reduced into six more worldviews, those being Deism, Naturalism, Nihilism, Existentialism, Eastern Pantheism, and Post-Modernalism.  Each one is the way that someone views the world, and I will more than likely have articles about each of the following views so that you can experience and know all about worldviews and maybe even find the worldview that you yourself have.

In Christian Theism God is infinite and personal, he always is, always was, and always will be.

God is transcendent and immanent, he is different from us, what we are a different form of God, he is not human he is a spirit.  God is here with us, but yet he is still beyond us.

God is omniscient “All knowing.” Sovereign “Control in control, he is in control of everything plausible.”

God created the universe out of ExNihilo, which is the root word for Nihilism, also Latin for nothing, to exist in uniformity of cause and effect.

God is not chaotic or random; there is a order, plan and purpose.

Human beings are made in the image of God, God made each species of animals to look like each other, as in a bear will always look like a bear, but a human, we all look different there is nobody the same looking, unless you are twins.  So we should have a special purpose in life.  Each one after their own kind but we are not like that, we are created in the image of God not like one another, but then again our image is to be made by ourselves.

Human beings can know God and the world around them, he is not trying to be hidden, he shows himself in the Bible with Mosses burning bush, he walked with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.  What is God? Is he just a spirit that can show up when and where he wants?  Or is he all around us as you read this?  Nobody really knows but he did show himself in the complex of creativity by Jesus.

Ethics is transcendent and is based on the character of God as good.  We do not set the standards for ethics, right and wrong, good and bad.  History is linear leading to the fulfillment of God’s purpose for humanity.

Humans were created for good, we became flawed by sin, but God began redeeming humanity through the work of Christ.  Death is either a gateway to eternal life or to eternal separation from the creator.  You decide.
