    What's The Philosophy Behind Christianity?

    What's the underlying philosophy behind Christianity (as well as the framework)? I've read that it's Platonic as well as Aristotelian. When I try to look up "Christian philosophy" online I come across Christian sites that are really vague and mainly discuss God and worship, and do not provide what I'm looking for.

    The basic tenants of christianity are:

    People are cast out of heaven, sent down into a cesspool of sins, where they still have to proof their allegiance to that very God.

    That makes them alien into a hostile physical world.

    Inside themselves are similar worlds. There is the powerful area of sins of the 'flesh' and a small area where you under the utmost moral efforts gain a shaky foothold and are waiting that the grace of that God falls upon you and redempts the sins you committed anyway or one of your earliest ancestor.

    The God is never visible but his will is managed by an organisation with men who say they know the will of their God.

    What God wants can be determined by studying an old book with the tribal events of a small semitic people of herders. Most often the tool of analogy is used in determination what is right or wrong in a given situation. Then it looked for contradiction. If found then there is an evaluation which is the more important one.

    Ordinary people are cut off from their God and it is their own fault, whether they are responsible by any deeds or not is not the matter. One of their earliest ancestors did the deed and it is now the curse for a believer.

    The problem is with Christ who supposedly washed of all the sins but not really because people are still born with the original sin.

    The basic view is manichaeichsm, there is a fight between good and evil with their according beings. Humans have the supposedly free will to choose a side.

    God itself can be very harsh and cruel so it is good to fear his wrath though he is also named sarcastically the God of love

    This is on very crude level the belief of an ordinary christian.

    Also christianity is not a philosophy but a religion, a belief system not based on reason but it is based on revelation. You only can use reason to deduct from the given words but not the other way around.

    I'd also say Christianity incorporates slave morality, and universalism.
