God 's existence has been a continuous debate certainly for centuries. The issue of God 's existence is debatable because of the different kind of controversies that can be raised from an "Atheist as being the non-believer of God" and a "Theist who is the believer of God". An atheist can raise different objections on the order of the universe by claiming that the science is a reason behind the perfection of the universe. In Aquinas 's fifth argument, he claims that the order of the universe cannot be explained by chance, but only by design and purpose. To explain this order of the universe he concludes that, there is an intelligent being whom we call "God".
People say that since Christians also believe in these other holy beings that there is no way that Christianity could be considered a monotheistic religion. However, even though Christians do sometimes believe and worship Jesus or Mary, they still know that God is the one and only God. They know that God is the one true God either way. This is why Christianity is in fact a monotheistic
Here is where the Igbo and Christian religions differ. The Ibo believed in multiple of gods, whereas the Christians focus on one. They also disagree on the feelings towards their creator. Later into their conversation Mr. Brown says to Akunna, “You are afraid of Chukwu. In my religion Chukwu is a loving father and need not be feared by those who do his will” (Achebe 110).
William Paley is a philosopher well known in the 18th and 19th century. He was well known for his piece entitled, “Natural Theology” which is a piece that argues for the existence of God and constantly compares it to a watch. He argues that if no one has seen someone one has seen a watch before, they would most likely believe that someone created it. He argues this because the complexity of the object was to complex for it to have just been that way naturally. In some people 's opinions, God can not create something so complex and can only be man made.
In The God Delusion, Richard Dawkins emphasizes on four theses that roughly entail his argument. Science is evidence based whilst faith is blind, If God created everything, who created Him, morality does not depend on a creator, and the Christian religion is perilous to society. His writing forces the reader to ponder the validity of religion. Dawkins adamantly states that religion can either be fully true or false. If proven false, it is the duty the intellectually conscience to refute.
This leads to other questions such as why Owen knew everything that he knew, and why he had such faith in a God that eventually let him die so young. Though this may sound like John is questioning religion as a whole, Owen still affects him and causes him to move closer to God and change his feelings towards religion. The concept of trust is difficult to grasp. J. Denny Weaver states, “Somehow, it is claimed, apart from and without our understanding of it, God uses or needs or works through and directs the evil in the world as well as the good. And faith then means to accept and to believe that it is good in the evil that happens” (Weaver 12).
“Christianity is the most perverted system that ever shone on man.” So says the infamous British atheist, Richard Dawkins in his 2006 bestseller, The God Delusion. As the most influential atheist since Madelyn Murray O’Hare, Dawkins argues that God does not exist and Christianity is a crude farce…because of the “evidence.” Dawkins goes on to audaciously spout that because of “available evidence and reasoning...it is possible to mount a serious historical case that Jesus never lived at all.” But even the most secular parochial historians admit that Jesus’ existence is undeniable. So much for making assertions based on “the evidence.” How can a self-proclaimed, so-called world class scientist boldly assert that, based on the evidence, Jesus never existed? It’s easy—just ignore some of the evidence. Present only partial evidence.
The devil will attack the pastor the same way he attacks anyone. Truly, anyone who plays with sin plays with fire. “We know that everyone who has been born of God does not sin, but the One who is born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him”(1John 5:18). They want to please God Many people have a noble thought of pleasing God, but they cannot please
In a few Islamic nations, man-made law is as yet thought to be subordinate to divine law. Thomas Aquinas elucidated the idea of Human Law , an unmistakable type of law close by Natural Law and Divine Law, in Summa Theologica. Thomas attested the power of divine law over man-made law, expressing that where it is at change with characteristic law it won 't be a law, however spoilt law. The aftereffect of any such clash is that the man-made law does not oblige in the court of conscience. Common law scholars and others have in this manner tested many man-made laws throughout the years, in light of the fact that they struggle with what the challengers attest to be divine, or natural, laws.
Johannes Verkuyl says "If a person draws his lifeblood from the one greater than Jonah and yet declines to spread the Good News among others, he in effect is sabotaging the aims of God himself. Jonah is father to all those Christians who desire the benefits and blessings of election but refuse its
