2nd Installment- On a Christian Philosophy

Andrew Wommack is the founder of Charis Bible College in 1994 and of Andrew Wommack ministries in 1978 which focuses on the Word of Faith and Faith healer. He also works as a TV evangilist. 

Mission statement: "God called us to teach the truth of the Gospel to the body of Christ with special emphasis on God's unconditional love and the balance between Grace and Faith."
Wommack teaches that human beings, by the authority of Christ and the empowerment of the Holy Spirit can perform miracles like raising the dead and healing the sick, which is a teaching that seems to be less and less emphasized in most churches. 

Everyone views life through a filter, it is the way that you think and that control the out come of your life. Developing a filter based off of scripture helps you to see and understand things the way that God does. You first have to ask yourself  if you believe that the bible is the infallible and inspired word of God? Do you believe there is only one way to God? Is God good or judgemental? Does He control your destiny or is that up to you? 
Christian Philosophy addresses how we think according to the word of God and applies to practical issues that we face everyday in our culture. "The people believed the commandments of men more than the Word of God. They maintained a form of godliness but denied the power of the Gospel of Jesus (2 Tim. 3:5). Jewish leaders were saying that Jesus was not enough, that the people still needed to observe rituals and ceremony, and those requirements were making the Word of God of no effect in their lives: “Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition” (Matt. 15:6)"
Christian Philosophy

Colossians 2:8 says, “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.”
