I want to start this post by looking at the importance of Metaphysics. First, I want to define the word. The word metaphysics, in simple terms means after or beyond physics. As one may suppose the existence of a theistic God is fundamental to Christianity. If God does not exist then there is no Christian theology. One who tries to construct a evangelical theology with out this foundation, is chasing the wind.
For me one of the reasons I find Metaphysics so important is because of morality. If there is no God or higher being then what are we to use as the standard for morality? How we are able to know what is good and evil? I think that we can all agree that in this respect metaphysics affects our daily living.
