God is One … So is His Truth

“Now by the nature of things, a Worldview is always ‘unified.’ As long as we have not understood, however, all the realms and spheres of creation as parts of a whole, our worldview is not rounded out and complete. Of course, the question here is not whether we have already brought our worldview to that point or ever shall do so, there can be no essentially different worldview in religion and in philosophy, for the common people and for the learned, for the academy and for life. If religion contains a worldview in seed form, and philosophy, in searching for the final ground of all things, always seeks after God, then it follows naturally, that they, in all their distinctions, have to conform inwardly to the essence of the matter and cannot compete with each other.

Only the Christian Worldview can fulfill this demand, because it makes known to us one God, the living and true God, and cuts the root of all polytheism.”

Herman Bavinck — Christian Worldview – p. 53-54

This quote teaches us again that Theology remains the Queen of the Sciences as well as Queen of the Humanities. To deny that the God of the Bible gives a unified meaning to all disciplines because He is the author of all disciplines is to embrace, by necessity, a polytheistic religion.
And with the casting off of the truth that theology is the Queen of the Sciences what we have at the same time accomplished is to embrace an “Enlightened Polytheism.”

This is evidenced by the fact that our Universities no longer have a “Uni” in their “Versity.” Instead now what we really have are Multi-versities where there is no unity wherein all the various disciplines can congeal and cohere. This is evidenced by the fact that our secondary schools by way of a sort of un-named catechism teach students to compartmentalize their thinking. There is zero search in our schools (or our churches for that matter) for a unifying motif in all learning. This is evidenced by the fact that it is a commonality to engage with people who reason by way of contradiction, and that quite without even knowing that they have contradictions littered throughout their noetic engagements. This is evidenced by our separating fact from value, logic from implication, and history from metaphysics (Lessing’s Ditch). This is evidenced by the fact that a theology that yet remains in the ascendancy in many quarters goes by the sobriquet “theology by contradiction.” One can only conclude that we are the most anti-Worldview social order which has ever existed.

And yet, this all is to be fully expected in a social order that has been given over to the enemy. Mephistopheles, is, after all, the author of confusion and the architect of chaos. It is impossible to not have dis-order in thought and life where Beelzebub has the whip hand.
