Purpose of this blog

We are two Christian students studying psychology and philosophy at a university in Singapore. This blog represents our efforts to think deeply and biblically with the issues that we are studying.

The bible says that we must be ‘sober-minded’ as we continue to live in this world. Secular academic institutions and subjects claim to be (at least at times) engaged in the neutral pursuit of the truth, but there are hidden naturalistic and atheistic assumptions and presuppositions that are sometimes consciously or unconsciously held. We want to be careful about what we study and engage critically with it.

At the same time, the bible declares that “everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, for it is made holy by the word of God and prayer.” (1 Timothy 4:4-5 ESV). Psychology and philosophy are good things, they contain valuable human insights that we as Christians can learn from. But we believe that these insights ultimately have to be viewed from the lens of the Word and the gospel; true knowledge is knowledge that is in submission to God’s word (cf Proverbs 1:7).

The articles are mainly written for our own benefit, to think through for ourselves and glorify and honour God through our studies. But we hope that they would be useful in helping any readers better think through their own studies as well.
