Paul J. Tillich : philosophy of life

Copy the text below to embed this resource

Religion, comments Dr. Tillich at the start of the program, is primarily interested in finding answers to such questions as: “What is being?’ “What is the relation of life to eternity?” “What is the meaning of life?” After commenting on the role of religion, Dr. Tillich discusses the relations of a moral law to the teachings of religion. The first principle of all moral action is love, he says. Not sentimental love but the love which unites what has been separated. Our ability to love properly is what motivates all our moral actions. This ability is called grace. A church is organized to house grace, but a church is far more than a physical or temporal structure or organization. At the end of the program, Dr. Tillich discusses the different ways of understanding Jesus Christ and the language of religion.
