THE LOGOS IS PRACTICAL

The danger of human philosophy is that it encourages or even absorbs the intellectual attention without fulfilling the demands of Christ Jesus to make the Word of God practical through the healing works. The ancient Greek philosophers were familiar with the term the Word, but they regarded the Word from the philosophical standpoint. To them it had no practical application.

Philo, a follower of Plato and entirely independent of Christianity, called the Logos, or the sum of ideas, "the Son of God." But the wisdom of God was to him a half mythological goddess instead of the healing Christ, Truth; hence it was of no practical value. This incorrect and theoretical view of the Word carried with it no proof of its existence. It was an intellectual fantasy, degenerating into mythology.
