Day 2 of becoming a Christian sage

Currently on a path to become a christian sage. The idea is to spend 30,000 hours of my life becoming immersed in various topics that I believe will help me come closer to Jesus. The idea is that these subjects will be non-vocational (meaning no accounting, programming, etc.) but also be focused more on the world that He created than our own culture (meaning that art, sociology, and law won't be studied). Here are the subjects I am currently learning:

>Doctrine
Old Testament
New Testament

>History
religious history only

>Math
calculus
number theory
logic
geometry

>Science
biology
chemistry
physics
zoology
astronomy
anthropology
psychology/neuroscience
anatomy/physiology
genetics
medicine

>Language
Hebrew
Greek
Aramaic
Linguistics

>Agriculture
food science
earth/environmental science
husbandry
botonny

>Handiwork
carpentry
tailoring

What's the point of this thread?

Well, first and foremost, I'd like you to also take this journey with me so that you too may develop a closer relationship with your Lord and Creator. This is also a discussion about which topics help bring us closer to Him versus which topics solely satisfy our own vain interests. Feel free to add more or debate which topics currently listed may or may not really lead to a closer relationship with Jesus.

      Not at all! If you're not a christian yourself, you're still welcome to come on this journey with me and to share your progress.

    You vastly underestimate how long it takes to gain a good amount of familiarity with even a single subject. You may gain a surface level understanding of all the subjects you listed, but you'll get gigamogged by people who focused only on one or two of them.

      The point is that this is a lifelong journey. There's no end goal. Everything I learn is something I didn't know before about our Lord's design. I sincerely doubt I'll ever be able to speak Hebrew like a native--let alone being able to understand ancient Hebrew--but if it helps me understand the Bible in any way, it'll help me understand Him better too.

      YouTube, medicine textbooks, any open courseware I can find. If anyone knows any other methods, feel free to let me know. It sucks that we live in a society that keeps some of the most important information we have behind a paywall.

    You should learn:
    Logic
    Geometry
    Calculus
    Number theory
    In that order, not all at the same time. Unless by "learning" you mean just memorizing formulas without properly understanding them.

      The reason why I'd like to learn them simultaneously is because I don't plan on finishing one and never returning to it. I plan on learning them throughout my life, so it'll go beyond just 10th grade level math when I study geometry and beyond just multivariate calculus (supposing I ever attain that level of expertise). Please feel free to disagree with me. I'd like to continue this conversation.

        By that hierarchy I meant learning the basics and fundamentals of each one before going for the next; you should indeed revisit old knowledge (for reinforcement and introspection) and approach new information as you go (and learning stuff should naturally result in discovering and feeling curious about new subjects and problems; knowledge should be approached as a story not as an encyclopedia).

        there is nothing a credentialed slopspert fears more than a polychad chiming in on their field

        Let's be fair, the probability of anon being a von Neumann tier guy is quite small; his understanding of each subject will be relatively limited but his perspective on the world as a whole should be more profound compared to the usual hypersecialization of modern times.

          Of course. I currently can do differential calculus, which definitely requires a strong foundation of geometry, so I know what you mean. Fortunately, I know enough of each field to where I know what to look for and how to find it if I feel like I need a deeper backstory into what I'm learning.

    What denomination?
    Also for sciences
    Stick to physics and chemistry
    Or minimize physics and focus on chemistry, biology, medicine and genetics
    Or you won’t be able to master them

          Being a master, at least to me, is a title I can't give myself. It's something that others would have to call me based on their own opinions.
          My denomination is Jesus. I belong to His church.

            Jesus Christ is God in human form, the Emmanuel prophesied by Isaiah. The Holy Ghost is the spirit of God.

            I believe in a godhead that can be interpreted as 3 "physical" forms: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Some people call this "tritheism", but I disagree, since I only follow the one true God despite the differing "physical" manifestations.

            They aren’t forms of God
            Jesus is God
            The Father is God
            The Holy Spirit is God
            3 persons, 1 God
            I have shown you scriptures to prove my point
            What you believe in is Modalism not Tritheism

            You keep bringing up "heresy" and using specific terminology to back it up but refusing to acknowledge that you're a human trying to understand the physical manifestation of someone not bound to human understanding. Why debate semantics when you yourself cannot understand the scope of God?

            I've never disagreed with any of this. This is why debating the trinity is so stupid. It's trying to use references to create a narrative of the properties of someone beyond our understanding.

            How can Jesus go to the father?
            How can the Father be greater than Jesus?
            If Jesus and the Father are 1 Person
            John 16:10
            We won’t see Jesus because he is going to the father
            So how can Jesus interact with the father if Jesus is just a form of the father?

            The Holy Spirit is not only God’s spirit, it is a person of its own
            In Acts 13:2 the holy spirit commands
            In Romans 8:27 the holy spirit has a mind
            This shows the Holy Spirit is a person not just a force of God
            1 Corinthians 2:11
            > 11 For who among people knows the thoughts of a person except the spirit of the person that is in him? So also the thoughts of God no one knows, except the Spirit of God.
            The Spirit of God knowing the thoughts of God shows he is fully God
            Because God is uncomprehensible to anyone other than God
            Acts 5 verse 3 says that Ananias lied to the Holy Spirit, verse 4 said he lied to God
            This is directly calling the Holy Spirit God

      OP here
      I've come to the conclusion that I need to expand my studies:

      >Doctrine
      avesta
      rig veda
      bhagavad gita
      oera linda

      >History
      expanded to all european history with focus on classical antiquity
      secondary focus on the bronze age

      >Math
      same

      >Science
      architecture

      >Language
      german
      french
      italian
      polish
      swedish
      norwegian
      hungarian
      russian
      (limited to these for now)

      >Agriculture
      fishkeeping

      >Handiwork
      shoemaking
      leather tanning
      basic smithing
      basic engineering (mechanical)

      I must confess...
      Christianity seems more distant than ever before, perhaps I shall resume a more philosophy focused life.
