My Definition of Christian TheismPosted: December 23, 2008
Question: Dewalt, could you give me your own definition of Christian Theism?
Answer: I’ll try, even though it may be different then that of some, but my Precise Definition of Christian Theism would be this… Christian Theism is the belief of one God, who is the creator of all things, who has existed always before time, who has all things to do with all things that pass throughout all of time, who should receive all glory due him, which intercedes constantly with his creation.
Question: Dewalt, can you give me Scripture References to defend your definition?
One God – John 14:1 & 6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Creator- Gen. 1:1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.
Existence – Heb. 11:3 By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.
Over all things – Rev. 4:11 “Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.”
Receiving Glory – Rev. 5:9-10 9 And they sang a new song, saying, “Worthy are you to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation,10 and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they shall reign on the earth.”
Intercedes with his creation – Isaiah 40:28 Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable.
