Redeeming Mathematics

Vern Poythress joins us to speak about his book Redeeming Mathematics: A God-Centered Approach. Dr. Poythress explains how the Triune God of the Bible is the foundation for mathematics by arguing that the harmony of abstract mathematical truths, the physical world of things, and the personal world of our thinking depends on the existence of the Christian God.

Poythress seems to identify God’s speech with God’s own being, rather than with God’s creating something. This seems highly problematic. It seems to divinize creational law, thus blurring the Creator/creature distinction.

Any thoughts on this?

I think this video clip explains a bit on the related subject of God’s relationship with numbers but I think it will apply to language as well – https://vimeo.com/119344418
