Christ-Shaped Philosophy and Content

by Dave Bukenhofer

This paper examines the negative consequences of relying too heavily upon theoretical content (“content”) as the basis of one's confidence in the preeminence of Christ in all things.

The argument show the importance of the role of content by briefly considering the initial exchange between Paul Moser and Graham Oppy in this forum. Having motivated the reader by drawing his or her attention to said importance, the paper proceeds to show why an improper understanding of the relationship between Christ and content weakens one's ability to defend the preeminence of Christ.

Two common but mistaken approaches to the relationship between Christ and content suffice in demonstrating this to be the case.
