Time And Eternity: Exploring God's Relationship To Time

It's a delight to be here, and I'm particularly gratified that Walter mentioned the Evangelical Philosophical Society. God has been doing a remarkable work in the field of philosophy in the Anglo-American realm, and the growth in the Evangelical Philosophical Society is just one evidence of this. We welcome both associate members as well as full members into the Society. Both types of membership include a subscription to the journal, so I would invite you to take a look afterwards at it if you're interested. In the program, the topic that I'm listed to be speaking on today is the topic of the elimination of absolute time by the special theory of relativity. However, in the interim I changed my mind about that topic, and having listened to Sir John yesterday, I was very glad that I did because I think that Professor Polkinghorne very effectively exploded the idea that the special theory of relativity has eliminated Newton's concept of absolute time.

Time and Eternity deals with difficult issues in modern physics and brings them into relation with traditional theological doctrines. Craig has done a great work, and it is marvelous that now the philosophy of religion is engaging with the philosophy of science to the great benefit of both. Time and Eternity offers a comprehensive discussion of the problems in the concepts of time and eternity on the basis of an extraordinary familiarity with a vast number of recent contributions to this issue from scientists and philosophers. The argument is subtle and precise. Particularly important are the sections on the impact of the different versions of relativity theory on the concept of time The book offers a plausible argument for a realistic conception of temporal process and for God's involvement in the temporal distinctions and processes because of His presence in His creation.

Relations, by their very nature, both distinguish and unite simultaneously. Thus, the ontological relations by which the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are distinguished from one another, and so are who they distinctively are, are the very same relations by which they are ontologically one and the same God. The relations allow each to be who he is.

This much, at least, is common property among almost all disputants in debates about the nature of time. Beyond that point, philosophers are deeply divided about the nature of time. The controversy most relevant to the concerns of eschatology is the debate over whether time is tensed or tenseless. We are all familiar with tense as it plays a role in natural languages. Philosophers and theologians are also deeply divided over the nature of divine eternity, debating whether God's eternity is to be construed as a state of timelessness or of infinite, omnitemporal duration. Theories of time intersect crucially with theories of divine eternity and with cosmogony. This is also the case with eschatology, in particular with physical eschatology.

God, Time, and Eternity

Стратмор его не слушал. Если спасение Сьюзан равнозначно крушению его планов, то так тому и быть: потерять ее значило потерять все, а такую цену он отказывался платить. Хейл заломил руку Сьюзан за спину, и голова ее наклонилась. - Даю вам последний шанс, приятель.

 Dov'ela plata. Где деньги. Беккер достал из кармана пять ассигнаций по десять тысяч песет и протянул мотоциклисту. Итальянец посмотрел на деньги, потом на свою спутницу. Девушка схватила деньги и сунула их в вырез блузки.

Затем щелкнула по кнопке возврат. Компьютер однократно пискнул. На экране высветилось: СЛЕДОПЫТ ОТПРАВЛЕН Теперь надо ждать. Сьюзан вздохнула. Она чувствовала себя виноватой из-за того, что так резко говорила с коммандером.

Он пошел на звук и уткнулся в стеклянную дверь, за которой, судя по доносящемуся оттуда шуму и гвалту, происходило нечто вроде драки. Преодолев отвращение, Беккер открыл дверь. Регистратура. Бедлам.
