The mystery of faith" and "a mystery of faith" are phrases found in different contexts and with a variety of meanings, either as translations of Greek τὸ μυστήριον τῆς πίστεως (tò mystérion tês písteos) or Latin mysterium fidei or as independent English phrases.

That is why Paul tells us in 1 Timothy 3:9 that deacons, like every other church leader, must hold the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. Paul’s use of the term mystery does not mean that there are secret truths of Christianity that only a select few can grasp. John Calvin writes that Paul titles the sum of Christian doctrine mystery as indeed God, through the gospel, reveals to men on earth a wisdom which angels in heaven behold with admiration; and, therefore, we need not wonder if it exceed human capacity. Deacons must hold the mystery of faith with a clear conscience (1 Tim.

This spiritual union is accomplished when a penitent individual is buried with Him in baptism. through faith in the working of God (Col. 2:12; cf. As a result, he suffered tremendously. His perspective, however, was remarkable. Paul moved from reflecting on his circumstances to his stewardship of the message whereof I was made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which was given me to you-ward, to fulfill the word of God (v. 25). Dispensation is translated from the word oikonomia. It conveyed the idea of stewardship. Gal.

In the modern world there is a widely held view that religious dogmas are not compulsory but secondary: even if they still have a certain historical value, they are no longer vital for Christians. Moral and social agendas have become the main concern of many Christian communities, while theological issues are often neglected.

The Christian Faith offers a fine, comprehensive companion to a number of recent systematic theologies. Another book of Dr. Horton's I have found helpful would be "God of Promise" which is subtitled "An Introduction to Reformed Theology". He displays a firm grasp of Christian teaching with a deep historical and biblical learning as well as being able to make his message simple enough for the entry level theology student.

Since the time of bloody persecutions right up to the post-modern age, each historical period posed its particular challenge to Christianity. Psychologically, Christians' vitality in overcoming these challenges came primarily from what is perhaps the deepest mystery of faith itself-the believers' union with God. The postmodern positivist questions this mystery, and rejects the possibility of communication with a non-sensorial and therefore "non-existing" God. Agnostics proclaim, "One man's religion, is another's delusion." Therefore, the modern challenge for Christians is to explain how God, despite being invisible, is experientially present in the life of believers. Although the experience of living in a relationship with an invisible God is a profound one for Christians, it seems nonsensical to those who emphasize the primacy of sensory experience. Paul Ungar's extensive scholarly training equips him remarkably well to explore where, when, how, and through which psychological functions communication with the spiritual God factually occur. Ungar's The Mystery of Christian Faith: A Tangible Union with the Invisible God is an apologetic work on the borderline of theology, psychology and philosophy. It is written for Christian intellectuals regardless of their denominational background and rationally demonstrates what François Mauriac's hauntingly poetic expression, "Nothing is more alien than living in a Godless world, and nothing is closer to humans than God."
