    First published Mon May 13, 2002; substantive revision Thu Aug 9, 2012 Many of the doctrines central to Christianity have important philosophical implications or presuppositions. Peter van Inwagen's work on the trinity (1988, 2003) has been mostly concerned with addressing this challenge.

    Some groups need to remember this in their zeal for the work of the Spirit. Scripture frequently describes them as “holy angels” (Mark 8:38, Rev. 14:10). Like blackness there is spread upon the mountains a great and powerful people; their like has never been before, nor will be again after them through the years of all generations...

He motivates, provides vision, and shows step-by-step how to make disciples. He acts as a superhero who exercises the power of God to subdue the forces of evil" (Hays, 75). "Those who know Jesus only as a worker of wonders do not understand him at all, for the secret of the kingdom of God is that Jesus must die as the crucified Messiah" (Hays, 76).

    That was precisely the situation for the very first Christians, living as they did in multi-cultural, syncretistic times, having to preach Christ as the ultimate revelation of God � foolishness to the Greeks and a stumbling block to the Jews. Lk 14:27; Mk 8:34-35; Mt 10:28, 29, 31). 2.3. But that does not mean that He is to be identified with the gods of non-Christian religions. They responded like the magicians in Egypt who said, “This is the finger of God.” Jesus worked miracles in conjunction with the Father and the Spirit, but not in the way that the apostles did.

The only trouble with this picture is that all significant truths and facts about man and God, about the nobility and misery of human freedom, and about the judgment and mercy of God, are left out of the picture.
