A Christian Philosophy

Everyone has a belief that they live by and, essentially judge the world through. Think of a philosophy as a filter to which you make decisions. People form this based on different experiences, and interactions with people. We tend to think that the world around us shapes who we are, and to an extent that is true, but we also shape the world by how we react to it. That is why if you are seeking to see change then you must first become that change. As a result of this realization many different philosophies have formed, one that I find interesting wish to have a better grasp of is a Christian Philosophy. I'm not sure if he counts as a philosopher (though we could argue that everyone is a philosopher) but he is a pastor of a church and founded as school on the principle of developing a filter to see the world as God does, and his name is Andrew Wommack.

Surprisingly this philosophy is very different from the way that a lot of Christians think currently and challenges people to align mind, body, and spirit under scripture. Through this, the individual is striving to center themselves on love (because God is love) and on understanding, forgiveness, and grace. The main idea that Andrew Wommack is teaching is that Christianity means striving to be “Christ- like” not to be confused with striving to be like God are entertaining the idea that we ever could be perfect, but that we can lead a life of less stress and hurt when we are aligned with the way that God thinks.
