On The Importance of Theological Philosophy

Enlightenment is anti-human because it exhorts men to make sacrifices for achieving ideas which are impossible. Those who quest for enlightenment get mired in metaphysical and moral contradictions. We might become better people if we are willing to work for it and are blessed by good luck, but it's not possible for us to become enlightened. 

Theological philosophy is a man’s most fundamental need precisely because he has no possibility for achieving enlightenment.

With theological philosophy man can try to find solace and he can develop moral and social values. If enlightenment were 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.
