The Christian Conception of Being – Cornelius Van Til

“Such then, in broad outline, is the Christian conception of being or the Christian conception of metaphysics. We may speak of it as a two-layer theory of reality. When men ask us, What is, according to your notion, the nature of reality or being?, [sic] we shall have to say that we cannot give an answer unless we are permitted to split the question. For us God’s being is ultimate, while created being is, in the nature of the case, derivative” (Cornelius Van Til, The Defense of the Faith [Fourth Edition], 52-53).
