The Stages of Formation of Faith in Fuller’s View and Criticizing it
Article Type:
Research/Original Article (ترویجی)
Among the theoricians who have investigated the evolution of faith from psychological viewpoint, Fuller is known as a prominent and influential authority. The present article investigates three important issues from his view. Firstly, how does Fuller describe and analyze faith? Secondly, how does faith evolve in one’s lifetime? Thirdly, what are the weak and strong points in his theory? The research method is descriptive-analytical and critical. The findings are as follows: faith is the human’s general action and every human, as he is a human being, is involved in faith, dealing with acquiring it. He depicts the faith’s evolution in the form of a pre-stage and six stages. His being influenced by Christian doctrines, focus on the structure, no attention to theme and content of faith and basing the stages of evolution on Piaget’s view are among the most important drawbacks of his view.
