L’œuvre de Jésus sur la croix: Nécessaire ou Suffisante pour la Justification du Croyant?

Je vais dire quelque chose qui va, à première regarde, être choquant. Mais, ce que je vous demande, c'est que vous continuer à lire, et que vous portez attention à ce que je dit (pour éviter des arguments inutile).


"Paul ne nous permettre pas de pensée que c’est totalement l’œuvre de Jésus sur la croix qui, tout seule et sans aucun autre condition, justifié le monde." (Voit Romains 5:2.)


Permettez que j'explique ce que cette phrase veux dire.

Ce n’est pas de nié l’importance de l’œuvre de Jésus pour le salut du croyant. Au contraire, c’est de dire qu’il y a plus d’éléments nécessaire pour la justification d’un personne. (Ne soit pas choqué, continue à lire attentivement.)

 En logique on fait une distinction entre les conditions suffisant et les conditions nécessaire pour y

Une condition suffisant garantis, tout seule et sans une autre condition, que la conclusion (ou effet) va arriver.

Une condition nécessaire doit être présent pour que la conclusion (ou effet) arrive, m…

Thoughts on "Presuppositions and Realism" by Linus J. Thro

I just finished reading "Presuppositions and Realism" by Linus J. Thro, from "An Étienne Gilson Tribute", p. 309-325. It was was quite interesting. Here is a quick resumé of his article, and some thoughts that it inspired.

     He argues that Realism (both Metaphysical and Epistemological) is without presuppositions. He begins by discussing different views on presuppositions (Hegel, Kierkegaard, Merleau-Ponty, and Nagel). He then explains some of the terms used by authors who discuss presuppositions (commitment, pre-philosophical influences, and philosophical presuppositions). He notes that it is important to make a distinction between "a presuppositionless beginning in philosophy and actually to begin without a presupposition. (p. 316.)" Finally he sets out his argument.

     His basic contention is "that realism does not assume, presuppose, or dogmatically assert that there are knowable things existent and available to knowledge, and that man …

WHAT IS A PRELUDE TO PHILOSOPHY? – A BOOK REVIEW

Prelude to Philosophy: An Introduction for Christians. By Mark W. Foreman. Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 2014. 208 pp. $20.00. ISBN 978-0-8308-3960-5.
            There are a lot of introductions to philosophy on the market. It could probably be claimed, with a certain amount of precision, that there is at least one introduction to philosophy for every particular approach to philosophy…and then some. As such, it can always be asked, why another introduction to philosophy? However, this book is not, in the traditional sense, an introduction to philosophy. Mark W. Foreman has written what he calls a prelude to philosophy, with the idea that this book should be read prior to reading an introduction to philosophy. In this review I will note the purpose of this book, the intended audience, the general outline of the book, and its relative worth.
            The purpose of this book is written with the purpose of explaining what philosophy is. As such, rather than to introduce the do…
