The book expounds his arguments from natural theology, making a teleological argument for the existence of God, notably beginning with the watchmaker analogy. Author: William Paley. Your pursuit of Christ begins with gospel and continues with the gospel your entire life.

The doctrine of God is the primary doctrine to which systematic theology devotes its attention and to which systematic theology seeks to relate all other doctrines. A Critical Reflection And Function Of Xavier's Mission. Relative to theology, Xavier’s Mission statement runs parallel to the mission of theology; a mission to “create a more just and humane society”. As theology serves as a medium between society and the church, Xavier also mediates between the institution and society.
