The futures appears packed with promise and pleasure. definitely at no time for almost a millenium and a part has the chance for actual theology been higher, because the flooring has been cleared within the impressive method of the outdated dualist and atomistic modes of inspiration that experience plagued theology for hundreds of years. it really is, hence, as much as us as theologians to improve theology by itself right floor during this clinical context, if merely simply because this is often the type of lifestyles and tradition, and the type of theology that could help the message of the Gospel to mankind, as, involved with the advances of common technological know-how, theology comes nearer and toward a true figuring out of the production because it got here from the hand of God.

Sample text

Hence the more rigorously we pursue science today, and the more rigorously we pursue our theology, the more we find there breaking out an inevitable and proper dialogue between theological science and natural science, if only because both have to develop fundamental attitudes to the world. I would like to demonstrate that by looking again at the Early Church, where we have the rise of classical theology—and by classical theology I mean the Nicene theology and all that followed in the next two centuries—when, especially in Greek theology, we have the foundations of the theology upon which all Christendom rests and to which all our Creeds go back.

Mach claimed that atoms do not have any existence in reality and are no more than symbols that we use in the theoretical conventions of physics, for it is impossible to know things in their internal relations. But of course we can, and it is precisely by penetrating into the internal structure of atoms that physics has made such startling advance in our knowledge of nature, but in so doing it destroyed the Kantian and Machian thesis that phenomenological knowledge was restricted to external relations or appearances.

But when we look back to the Early Church, and think of the staggering conquest of the ancient world by the Galilean, we find that this took place precisely as early Christian theology—instead of trying merely to operate within the paradigms of the ancient pagan world—under48] CREATION AND SCIENCE took the enormous task of recreating the very foundations of human philosophy, science, and culture so that the Gospel could take deep root and develop within human society in such a way as to evangelize and convert it, and would thus fulfill its own cultural role in clarifying and unifying all human knowledge and life under the creative impact of God's self-revelation in Christ and the ordering power of his love.
