Hello there Mr. Leander!
I read that you earned a degree in history, I am currently taking up a history degree in our university here in the Philippines and interested how history can fit in apologetics and theology in the philosophical context.
I have three questions sir,
Many polytheistic religions in ancient history or antiquity have been very dominant and flourishing. Was there a point in history when all human beings were monotheistic and later branched into polytheism? If there are any sources on that, may I ask for the sources as well? hehe
What are the historical truth tests that a Christian can use in determining the truthfulness and authenticity of scriptures? Is it the traditional historical methodology, like external and internal criticisms, or were there additional criteria or standards added on that method?
Lastly, haha, what is the main thesis of Immanuel Kant in determining metaphysical knowledge and what was his conclusion there? Can his philosophy fit into the Christian worldview?
Oh sorry for these multiple questions sir I am really interested in your answers. Thank you very much for the future response. Looking forward… Maraming Salamat Po! (English: That you very much sir!)
