*Abstract: This capstone project consists of four research papers in the
fields of systematic and biblical theology, and pastoral psychology and
counseling. The first essay discusses eschatology in a pastoral way in the
setting of the apostolate using Jesus’ well-loved parable of the prodigal
son. It highlights the relationship of the father, elder son and younger
son in parallel with the story of creation, sin and eschatology. The second
essay compares and critiques John Hick's Philosophy of Religion and Paul
Knitter’s Theology of Religion in the context of the plurality of
religions. Both writers believe that God wills salvation for humanity. The
way to salvation, however, has many paths and Christianity is just one of
them. This assertion questions the role of Jesus Christ in salvation. The
third essay asserts that John 21:1-14 is more than a mere experience of
recognition by the disciples. Rather, it is an anamnesis, a remembering
which, for the Johannine community, characterizes discipleship. The fourth
essay explores the boundaries of self-love and narcissism. Highlighting the
psycho-spiritual dimensions characteristic of pastoral counseling, this
essay studies the patterns, criteria and dangers of a narcissistic
personality disorder and factors in **the grace of God and the human
person’s capacity for transcendence towards authentic psycho-spiritual
healing.*
