About
Living Faith is a Christian blog that interacts with a variety of biblical, theological and practical topics written by Grand Canyon University's College of Theology faculty and specially invited guests of the college. Our content provides practical and biblical advice from a Christian worldview for living our faith in the midst of an increasingly secularized world. In addition, our content wrestles with cultural topics and issues that challenge how we live out our faith as believers. For this reason, contributors to our Christian blog strive to write with compassion and apologetic concern to honor Christ and edify the church in every way possible.

The biblical commands to deny one’s self can be some of the most puzzling to understand and difficult to live out. Yet obedience to these commands is essential to the work of sanctification, which is empowered by the Holy Spirit.

“This vision is beatific. It beatifies. It transforms the soul into the divine image; transfusing into it the divine life, so that it is filled with the fullness of God” (Charles Hodge, Systematic Theology, 3:860)

At times I struggle balancing my spiritual life and my intellectual life. I like to ask deep questions, but some have recently condemned my questions as prideful and “worldly.” Does the Bible condemn academic study or intellectual engagement because it counts as “worldly wisdom” and knowledge that make one to “puff up” with pride?

Sincerely,

Theophilus

It is possible that some will read the following as anti-science or anti-technology and that I am advocating for a fideist rejection of the world. I am not. I am writing a reflection on the foundation for hope.
