What does a Christian make of Plato's forms (or the Platonic tradition in general)? To some degree, it must be admitted that the the early Christians adopted Platonic language. No doubt they had little choice. And when one gets past the stereotypes, the Platonic tradition is very beautiful and explains a lot. Yet...Michael Horton has made a strong case that instead of Plato's two worlds, Paul posits the "two ages." I suppose we all have our different "challenges;" this is mine. I really appreciate the beauty and power of the Platonic tradition in the best sense of the term (as much as Origen is heretical on a few key points, I am simply in awe of his project in the face of Neo Platonism), yet Horton has apparently made an indisputable case to the contrary.
