On The Importance of Theological Philosophy

Theological philosophy is a man’s basic need because he has no possibility for achieving enlightenment or the knowledge of the universe as a whole. Enlightenment is an anti-man enterprise; it exhorts man to make sacrifices for achieving an impossible ideal. Those who quest for enlightenment get mired in metaphysical and moral contradictions. We can become better people if we are willing to labor for it, but it's not possible for us to become enlightened. With theological philosophy man can try to find explanation for things for which there is no scientific explanation. If enlightenment was possible, there would be no need for theological philosophy because then man would be omniscient; he would have the knowledge of the ultimate truths.  God doesn’t need theological philosophy—man does.
