For the scripture saith…
The laborer is worthy of his reward.

— Timothy 5:18

Amoris Divini

Jesus Christ was the Logos or Word of God.

And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;

And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

   Romans 5:4–8

Philosophy of Theology: This site was founded on the Truth. Dr. Paul Martinus dedicated his life to counseling as a professional philosopher and theologian. What would become this site began in Rome over 2,000 years ago in our house, the House of Martinus. It was here where saint Justin who had been martyred for teaching Christ as Logos or Word of God. Paul wrote: “Beware lest any man spoile you through Philosophie and vaine deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ: (Col 2:8, 1611 KJV).” One philosophy is of the Truth, the other philosophies, not necessarily.

Counseling. Our strategic approach to philosophical counseling is the best ethos in the world. This is accomplised by putting a dilemma on trial from which internal struggles are transformed into the tribulation of a lifetime while tenaciously helping clients learn from their salvific effort (Phil 2:12). Afterall, the existential beginning of all wisdom was well put on display with Sigmund Freud’s defeat in his final session which is believed to have culminated with C.S. Lewis in Freud’s home who had been shown to be the most wise for unlike, Freud, Lewis feared the Lord (Prov 9:10). Freud experienced what theologians commonly know as natural evil when he lost loved ones at tended young ages and could not grasp how an all good and loving God could allow such a seemingly unjust and cruel evil to befall innocent people. Freud’s experiences tended to gravitate away from a monodiety and towards a plethora of gods in attempt to find the Truth he knew to be True but simply could not bring himself to admit because his soul was lost. Freud possesses the capacity to be the proverbial prodigal son (Lk 15:24) yet we must not allow ourselves to forget that “there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth” (Lk 15:10). Only God knows what Freud was thinking after having thrown God’s gift away. This is where an Eriksonian perspective on Freud’s apparent inability to successfully experience gero-transcenence from an psychoanalytic perspective. It is our goal to teach the client critical and creative thinking skills as a new creature in Christ. As philosophers, we help birth Truth as handmaidens to theology—Queen of the Sciences.

Bibliotherapeutic. There are five phases synthesized in books that are not just seminal but monumentus in resolving and preventing crises of the soul: First, we turn to A Logic Text Using Socratic Method, Platonic Questions, and Aristotelian Principles presented in Peter Kreeft’s Socratic Logic to find out what the matter is when clients come to us with their problem. The second, Ignatian Spiritual Exercises which serve as a means of examining our clientele’s conscience in order “to conquer oneself and regulate one’s life without determining oneself through any means that is disordered” (St. Ignatius’ Exercita Spiritvalia). […] Finally, the whole matter is concluded when the Preacher (Eccles 12:13–14) clients learn to “fear God and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man for God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.” In other words, become wise by keeping God’s commandment’s which are arguably best summed up in Christ’s Gospel, according to John (13:34).

Stage 1. Enquiry: The answer to: “What is the matter?” is the issue.

Stage 3. Rule: Learning to live a monastic lifestyle and doing daily exercises.
Stage 4. Mission: Living faith, seeking truth, and active contemplation.
Stage 5. Pillars: Prayer, study, community, and ministry.
Stage 6. End: Revisiting the matter from which an answer had been drawn.

The Spirituali existed during the mid-sixteenth century and you are welcome to join the movement to revive the Spirituali’s efforts to reunite the Church and undo all divisions. There are Catholic and Protestant, and even Eastern Orthodix. Protestant divisions, for example, which include the episcopal, presbytery, baptist, and non-denominational churches are all government licensed institutions regardless of whether these are non-profit or for profit. Invite you to leave your current division and unite with the Christ’s Church on earth by returning the power back to the people and their homes where husbands and fathers play the role of the Father, wives and women, the Holy Spirit, and boys or sons, the Son imitating Jesus to the best of their abilities as Christ by proxy and hopefully become husbands, fathers, and as the Father once married to a woman who by the power of Holy Spirit will bear a child, boy or girl. Girls will be paired with boys from other families whose own homes serve as the very Houses of God on earth without subjucating to secular governments worldwide.
