Christian Tractatus

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

The experiences on which Christianity is founded are of a historical nature.

  1. The above statement is consistent with Christianity's own self-image, which is of God revealing himself to man in a sequence of acts in history.
  2. While there would be a consensus amongst all Christians agreeing with the above with respect to God's main saving acts, Catholic Christianity has always maintained that evidential miracles have continued from Patristic times up until the present day (eg. as evidence for the sanctity of particular individuals or as evidence for particular doctrines). Orthodox Protestantism has tended to reject such claims, mainly because it is out of sympathy with the claims such miracles are supposed to be evidence for.
