Why I Believe in Christianity

I will try and explain why I think a religious philosophy necessary and why I think Christianity the best religious philosophy.

Why I Am A Catholic

The Church is not merely armed against the heresies of the past or even of the present, but equally against those of the future, that may be the exact opposite of those of the present.

Skepticism and Spiritualism

An impartial person is a good judge of many things, but not of all. He is not (for instance) a good judge of what it feels like to be partial.

St. Thomas Aquinas

St. Thomas confronts other creeds of good and evil, without at all denying evil, with a theory of two levels of good.

The Religious Aim of Education

The deepest of all desires for knowledge is the desire to know what the world is for and what we are for.

Miracles and Modern Civilisation

For, obviously, the mere fact that a thing happens seldom, under odd circumstances and with no explanation within our knowledge, is no proof that it is against natural law.

Introduction to the Book of Job

The modern habit of saying, “This is my opinion, but I may be wrong” is entirely irrational.
