Its production is preserved almost completely. If retain you epistemological issues is only as preparation to metaphysics and theology.
Trinnitate at the stage of accession to Manichaeism, it asks for the truth, and not finding it in the doctrine of Mani, wonders, from skepticism, if there are truly reliable, absolute, truths that no one can doubt. Because if you are in doubt, he lives”.
Reflecting on itself, the man can be sure at least three things: Ruled out the possibility of the human origin of such ideas, comes to the conclusion that only a superior being can deposit in us these eternal and immutable ideas: This is what the Augustinian theory of lighting; He is not the neoplatonic emanation, because the soul to contemplate ideas in itself does not contemplate the essence of Godbut that it’s a natural lighting.
See, that’s what the app is perfect for.
However, throughout his works appeal to several tests of the existence of God: God exists also shows it the order and contingency of creation, the existence in our minds of necessary and universal ideas, and the belief among all the people, when not half the depravity.
In terms of the essence of God, it is immutable, nothing acquires and nothing to lose. What you say of it always will be underweight and stunted. On the other hand, the world has not been created at the time, but over time.
Time would be simply awareness of time, as there is for those beings such as los angeles, for example that lack of matter and extension. The soul is immaterial and immortal. Made in the image of God, is a reflection of the Trinity in three faculties: Not the soul trunitate in the body as it captivates or punished, as is it, precisely, who governs, orients and vivifies the body substrate.

The man reaches its fullness, its happiness only in his encounter with God: The story and its meaning.

The earthly city aspires to peace which coincides with the temporal welfare, while the heavenly city aspires to eternal peace that is obtained after the death, thanks to the full possession of God in the beatific vision.
In the development of the story, the contours of the two cities are not perfectly NET: The Church, for its part, has to serve as a mentor of the society and the State, to monitor and guide to men his salvation. The civil authority, if it is steeped in the Christian spirit, can facilitate and promote the eternal city postulated by the divine will.
In the early days of the Christian Church, aguetin theorists offered objections to the cultivation of music. The love of this music had a firm basis, since it was formed in the music theory of ancient Greece, and connoisseur of the dominant aesthetics of that time, conveyed it in his teachings as rhetorical. When I delved into the philosophical studies, he conceived of a vast production dedicated to the teaching of the liberal arts that did not conclude, but that there are still some chapters and fragments.
The second part was treated on the melody. This aspect highlights Yes in two works that earned him the title of doctor of the Church: He wrote in confessions, cried many times when listening to songs and agusitn hymns, aching is have ceded to the earthly influence that had made him excited about music.
