 Christian Mathematics Introduction
The claim that mathematics would be the same with or without the existence of God is an antichristian statement, because the Scriptures declare that God created and holds all things, which includes mathematics, together.
Since mathematics in general and Christian mathematics in particular is still under development, it is important for Christians to include mathematics in their view of the Christian dominion mandate.
Christian mathematics seeks to keep mathematics connected to creation and daily reality while encouraging the student in their knowledge of God, experience in being led by His spirit (Romans 8:14), and discerning the times through illustrations of philosophy and truth in mathematics.

 God Constrained By Mathematics
Mathematics is partly empirical, it discovers facts about this universe, but these facts do not, in general have any connection with each other.
So the structures and relations seen in the mathematics we study, most of which are ultimately derived from observation, are unrepresentative of mathematics (about almost all of which we know nothing as yet).
If instead, mathematics is the basis of any reality, conceivable or inconceivable, as it is the basis for physical reality, then the notion of a god unconstrained by mathematics is gibberish.

 God and the Future of Mathematics
The study of the principles and the nature of mathematics is known as the philosophy of mathematics, or sometimes mathematical philosophy.

 WHAT DOES MATHEMATICS REPRESENT
Public understanding of mathematics with a human face then comes to be about demonstrating the limits of mathematics and science, the ease of learning these traditionally esoteric subjects, and the all too human qualities of their practitioners.
Mathematical knowledge is not simply a "parade of syntactic variations," a set of "structural transformations," or "concatenations of pure form" (adapted from Geertz’, 1973).
In the history of mathematics, the 1800s is a period during which self-reflexivity engages and mathematics leaves physical representation behind to an extent unknown in earlier periods.

Unlike the “modern math” theorists, who believe that mathematics is a creation of man and thus arbitrary and relative, we believe that the laws of mathematics are a creation of God and thus absolute.
God gave us our powers of thought and language and chose to reveal His will and His ways to us in a written form, the Bible; thus we need to pay particular attention to the teaching of grammar, spelling, vocabulary, composition, and literature as we seek to educate students from a Christian perspective.
