Van Til: Christian Metaphysics

“So I point out that the Bible does contain a theory of reality. And this theory of reality is that of two levels of being, first, of God as infinite, eternal, and unchangeable and, second, of the universe that is derivative, finite, temporal and changeable. A position is best known by its most basic differentiation. The meanings of all words in the Christian theory of being depend upon the differentiation between the self-contained God and the created universe” (Cornelius Van Til, The Defense of the Faith (4th Edition by P&R Publishing, 2008), 237).
