I.4.1 Clement of Alexandria- The Stromata Clement here, examines the parallels between philosophy and theology, claiming that philosophy was given us as a tool to prepare us for Christ. Clement affirms his paper with the last sentence of the first paragraph, “Philosophy… was a preparation, paving the way for him who is perfected in Christ.” As I read on, there was a sentence that grabbed my attention. It was a little resonate of Paul’s ‘in the world but not of it’ belief. He wrote, “And when he says, ‘Be not much with a strange woman,’ he admonishes us to use indeed, but not to linger and spend time with, secular culture.” I like this. He is basically saying that culture is a tool with which to reach your audience more effectively. You’re going to be dead center in it. You might as well use it. I.4.2 Tertullian- The Prescription Against Heretics I think Tertullian views philosophy in a negative light. Well, lets face it, Tertullian HATES philosophy. According to Tertullian are the doctrines of demons used to confuse men.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
