James Fowler

stages of faith stage one and two

What is stage one and the age group? Intuitive-projective faith (typically ages 2-7)
What does stage one's title mean? The child intuitively understands the ultimate conditions of existence and projects these concerns onto powerful snapshots religious images...fusing fantasy, fact, and feeling.
What is stage two and the age group? Mythic-literal faith (typically ages 7-12, but some adults)
What is stage two's title mean? The primary way the child relates to God is through stories. The child works hard to sort out real from make-believe by organizing powerful snapshot images into linear narratives or story-myths characterized by logical, concrete, literal explanations.
God concept of stage one? God is super powerful agent, distant, Flat and somewhat unpredictable
God concept of stage two? God is rational, decision-making agent who feels and reckons humans' intentions BUT not a personal relationship
Linear narratives/stories of stage one? Child identifies with characters and fragments of stories but neither create or retell in a linear fashion, nor identify the main pt. gravitates towards what seems relative.
Linear narratives/stories of stage two? Piaget's drive to understand, combined with logic, prompts children to make sense of their world via stories. Those in the stage can both extract the main pt. and generate their own concrete stories to explain theological mysteries.
linear...stage two continued The stories reflect an understanding of agents' intentions and expectations of God's justice. BUT scripture is still viewed as many separate stories.
Good vs. Evil stage one Strong dichotomy: -agents in stories are completely bad or good. -intentions are not reckoned -delights in hero stories and/or dreads evil. -is high susceptible to threat-of-hell conversions
Good vs. Evil stage two Good and evil are balanced by a God who is bound by inherent natural law of justice, impartiality, & reciprocity. -do both good and bad -child susceptible to works-righteousness theology -may rationalize misfortune to maintain belief in reciprocity.
