What is Holistic Theology Studies?
Holistic Theology Studies consists of the exploration of logic, ethics, moral self-discipline, and the homeostatic balance of mind, body, and spirit. Typically, holistic theology studies embark on God's divine law and its effects on the human race. Holistic theology studies embraces philosophies that bridge the gaps between the laws of nature and the being as a whole, as well as how the divine mind interacts with matter. Overall, by integrating metaphysics and the explanation of soul, spirit, and the physical body, holistic theology studies uses religious, yet psychological applications to explore the wholeness and separateness of the whole nature of 'living being.
What is an Interfaith Minister?
