In what two ways is freedom theistic?
1. lets us choose objects and deal with god's creatures 2. dynamic, b/c of transcendence we have operatives for choice
The analysis of the human spirit as transcendence to MG in and through inner-worldly experience and history: that analysis itself indicates that we relate to MG in faith. Explain.
Our reach is for the fullness of god so our ability to choose limited object represents our relation to god because of our ability to transcend worldly objects. We mush have faith in the positive sense towards god because as inner-wordly beings we are not able to transcend God, he is only able to transcend us.
Why is Satan not just apart from God but in hell?
By rejecting God, Satan rejects the very source of his own freedom. By rejecting Freedom, he thus places himself in a state of existence devoid of freedom, i.e. Hell.
Creation is an act of love. Explain the analysis behind that proposition.
The world is an act of choice by, God and creation is an act of love. Creation and the world we live in are contingent realities. There is a world because you love it, not necessarily a world by itself.
Why does Rahner designate God as "Unobjectifiable Horizon"...as "Incomprehensible Obvious"
If we objectify God, we transcend God and then God would not be God, but limited reality and we would experience Him indirectly. We cannot transcend God.
Reflection on the existence of God on the part of an empirical science is a confession in this sense:
A confession that God is God; nothing cannot structure a reach. We cannot objectify God.
Explain the notion of "anonymous theism"
That by simply acknowledging the life of another human being, you (in the case of many atheists) are indirectly acknowledging God. In other words, when you affirm the mystery of human, you are implicitly acting out of affirmation of the mystery of God, because the mystery of human is in the image of God.
What is the objection from the "left"? The response to the objection?
What right does Rahner have to claim that non-Christians are actually unknowingly
operative Christians? Response is - Rahner's response is not directed towards non-Christians. It is instruction to Christians regarding how to rationalize God's universal saving grace in the context of other religious traditions.
What is the objection from the "right"? The response to the objection?
The notion of the anonymous Christian devalues the explicit and practicing Christian. Response is- explicit knowledge and celebration is more fulfilling. If you have an issue with the term anonymous Christian than may be you are really an "anonymous non-Christian"
The classic argument for the existence of God on the basis of the principle of causality is fundamentally flawed because....
because a presupposition of the cause inevitably creates a circular argument
Does the designation of God as the "Whereunto" of the human spirit mean that we are in relation to God only at some future date?
No -we are always living in relation to Mystery of God. God is at the heart of the human being.
