does christian belief entail certain philosophical positions?

Thomas Guarino thinks so.

Or, perhaps, true Christianity entails giving up on Christianity itself.

My view is that as this sort of question is usually construed, the answer is no. The core of beliefs presupposed by faith in Christ don't on their own imply things of philosophical significance beyond the obvious, e.g. that God exists. It's only when essential Christian beliefs are subject to particular, and arguable, interpretations, and thus conjoined with further propositions, that philosophically interesting implications ensue. There are probably putative counterexamples to this claim worth discussing...
