Philosophy #5: The Philosophy of God
Lesson 5 is about the “Philosophy of God” (also called “Natural Theology”). While theology studies God under the light of faith and revelation, Natural Theology studies God under the light of reason. (This is why it is called “natural.”) Remember that not everything about God is inaccessible to the powers of human reason. While only faith can tell us that God is a Trinity, reason can, at least, tell us that God exists and certain attributes that God must have. So the basic definition of the Philosophy of God is: “the study of God based on the natural light of reason.”
