Christianity Birth Narratives Flashcards. What Does the Christian Tradition Mean by the Word “Mystery?” - Community in Mission. In the secular world, a “mystery” is something that baffles or eludes understanding, something that lies undisclosed.

In the Christian and especially the Catholic world, “mystery” is something a bit different. Here, mystery refers to the fact that there are hidden dimensions in things, people, and situations that extend beyond their visible, physical dimensions. The Incarnation.

Philosophy News. Truth, like knowledge, is surprisingly difficult to define.
We seem to rely on it almost every moment of every day and it's very "close" to us. Yet it's difficult to define because as soon as you think you have it pinned down, some case or counterexample immediately shows deficiencies. Ironically, every definition of truth that philosophers have developed falls prey to the question, "Is it true? " Simply, we can define truth as: a statement about the way the world actually is. We'll look at various theories below that philosophers have considered but that's an adequate rough-and-ready definition to get us started. The Birth of Jesus in the Gospels.

WOF 069: Following the Right Jesus. Thomas Joseph White’s book The Incarnate Lord discusses the importance of Jesus’ identity.
The classical tradition of Christology understood Jesus ontologically, that is to say, in terms of his fundamental being or existential identity; whereas modern and contemporary Christology tends to understand Jesus psychologically or relationally. The transition from an ontological Christology to a consciousness Christology has conduced toward all manner of relativism, subjectivism, indifferentism, and the attenuation of evangelical zeal. In this episode, Bishop Robert Barron unpacks these theological concepts and explains their consequences in familiar terms. The Word Became Flesh.

I always wanted to align my life with what was true. Discovering the truthful, unfortunately, proved to be rather more difficult than I had realized. I stopped being an atheist while I was a student at Oxford University late in 1971, partly because of my growing realization of the intellectual over-ambition of the forms of atheism I had earlier espoused, but also because I came to realize that Christianity offered a way of making sense of the world I observed around me and experienced within me.
Christianity thus offered me a rationally plausible and imaginatively compelling "big picture" of reality that brought my worlds and concerns into focus. It is not so much a collection of isolated individual beliefs, but a web of interconnected beliefs, which gains its strength and appeal partly because of its comprehensiveness, and partly because of its intellectual and imaginative resilience.
