Christian Tractatus

(Text as at 12/08/2007 10:17:46)

Because the world is open to investigation, divine "special revelation" is not essential for mankind to come to an understanding of its general laws.

  1. Clearly, however, special revelation would be necessary to establish the truth of those propositions of Christianity (eg. the nature of the person & work of Jesus Christ) that do not fall into the category of general laws.
  2. The Thomist distinction between general & special revelation is valid (given a belief in revelation at all).
