Bernard James Mauser, Ph.D, has a diverse background in many areas. His Bachelor’s in Science focused on exercise science, psychology, and biology (Youngstown State University). For his Master’s (Southern Evangelical Seminary), the focus was in Christian Apologetics, theology, religious studies, and philosophy of religion. During this time he discovered that most errors in thinking about reality resulted from having a philosophy built on the wrong foundation. This provided motivation to pursue a doctorate in philosophy from Marquette University. The Master’s in Philosophy was complete in 2007, and the doctoral work in philosophy was finished in the spring of 2011 with a concentration in the history of philosophy, ethics, natural law, Thomas Aquinas, and medieval philosophy. His doctoral dissertation is titled The Ontological Foundations of Natural Law and Contemporary Naturalism.. Dr. Mauser has taught students at the graduate, undergraduate, secondary, and primary levels of school in various forums. He has been a youth pastor at several churches, martial arts instructor, and swing dance instructor. In addition to being a professor at Rivendell - San Diego Christian College, he has also taught at Marquette University, Southern Evangelical Seminary, Liberty University, Cardinal Stritch University, and Bethlehem Bible College and Seminary. Dr. Mauser’s loving and supportive wife, Amber, not only fits the description of the Proverbs 31 woman, but also is a key component of the effectiveness of his ministry. Dr. and Mrs. Mauser have been blessed with four sons.
Religious Pluralism and John Hick
Hick’s account rests on the fallacy of equivocation and cannot deal with the obvious areas of contradiction between different religious systems.
