Hands up who thinks it's hilarious that Rhology doesn't realise that his "Xtian worldview" is built on a scaffold of Greek philosophy?
First, kudos for spelling "realise" correctly.
Second, to use an ERV-ism, 0h n0es!!!!!111 My worldview resembles Greek philosophy! Next you'll be telling me that I sound an awful lot like some devout Jews you know.
Hopefully our anonymous poster understands that this speaks not at all to whether my worldview is wrong, but is simply a comparison to another worldview.
And sure, my worldview shares more in common with Greek philosophy than, say, Confucian or Hindu philosophy.
Maybe said Greek philosophers, to whichever you're referring, got it right from time to time. Maybe they saw the world fairly clearly and philosophised to that effect, got a lot of things right.
This kind of 'criticism' is similar to assertions like "Christianity is alot like those Roman mystery religions. I mean, just look at how similar some of their beliefs and symbolism are."
Apparently, in other news, US currency was in fact never printed by the US gov't and has always been worthless b/c someone printed a $3 bill one time.
God made the world and has ordained its events in a certain way. No one is arguing that anyone will get EVERYthing wrong in his life, or even that everyone or most everyone will get a majority of things wrong in his life. God has written His law on our hearts and has placed in each of us a knowledge (which we all suppress, outside of God's grace) of His existence and His invisible nature and power.
We would expect, therefore, people who have these things inside of them and who live in God's universe to mimic Him and true religion in many ways.
