TILLICH, SELF-TRANSCENDENCE, AND I (OR WHY I BECAME CHRISTIAN)

Rolando M. Gripaldo

 

Abstract:

The goal of a Christian, especially a regenerated Christian, in the 21st century is to tell the story of the various shapes that his religious position underwent with the hope that other unbelievers may follow his footsteps, that is, from a belief in God to atheism and agnosticism, and back to a belief in God. He tries to show by using the arguments of Paul Tillich how the limits of language enabled him to transcend the agnosticism of Bertrand Russell.
