I enrolled into Philosophy at Tyndale University & College a few years back.
Philosophy can be a little bit tricky in the sense that you can lose yourself in it pretty quickly and in losing yourself you come up empty and basically fall into the trap of deceit.
I enrolled because I love the idea of principles that are proven and since I am well versed in the philosophy of managing people, I thought that a formal education might be of assistance. However, the course outlined more of an apologetic approach towards defending or proclaiming a point of view and being able to do so with a sense of logic and wisdom.
In my walk with Jesus, I find it quite easy to adapt and change when I come to challenges, however, it is my cultural worldview that makes it more difficult to walk with Him than I could imagine. What is worse is that my cultural worldview trumps the biblical worldview and sometimes that does not matter. How can that be – what kind of hold does our philosophy of life from our cultural upbringing have on us?
Our human traditions and our beliefs or superstitions of the spirits in the universe has sometimes more sway than God. That coming from us making a decision that He is God, our Lord and we made a decision to follow Him.
More and more I listen to the wisdom of one who said that we need to be careful because in thinking we are standing, we could easily fall.
