He thought this because he believed it involved that the elect that salvation that the elect could get could also be gained by the non elect person as a result of their own effort to salvation. Which I believe from my religion to not be true. I believe that anyone has the open and free will to receive salvation it's not only given to a specific group of people. But Calvin did not believe this to be true he believed that the reprobate are the people that God intentionally chooses to neglect, I don't believe that God neglects anyone that does not neglect him. John Calvin believed firmly in election and predestination and he backed his beliefs with biblical statements.
Existence of God Lewis possesses a strong belief in God. He states that the human population consists of “the majority who believe in some kind of God or gods, and the minority who do not” (39). I agree with this statement because there are many people who have faith in God because their faith gives them happiness and direction in life. The belief in a higher Intelligence causes people to live on Earth with satisfaction. Lewis also argues that the scientific method cannot explain if God exists or not (58).
Pascal also believed that the belief in God as the only reasonable choice, when Descartes believed that God should always be held true. Their beliefs still back up this objection though. If nothing is known about the external world, or the external world is infinite gain, there is still no absolute certainty in which side of the wager to choose, therefore betting on God as true is still the most reasonable
One important reason why all people need help is that God created people in this way. Even before the Fall of human, people need help from God. They had a close walk with God and they dependent on God for all the provisions. God created people in a special way, which was different from any other animal. Mankind are revelation receivers, interpreters and worshipers.
However, we proclaimed to the world that no man was worth more than another in the eyes of God. This couldn’t be reconciled with slavery. In the other hand, the author explains how different people are which everyone has their own unique value and personality. As a result, they believe “some people can superior others, that there was an elite”.
and now I am back to working and active after few months of treatment. Yes, I have lost a lot in my career and learnt people; but the bitter experiences have given me strength for a better tomorrow. Some people ask me why I still trust god despite undergoing such turmoil in life. Some criticize me quoting my devotion and practices are not sufficient to grant me wellness in life.. But all I want to say to all is this is a life is a gift of my creator ~ the paramathma..
The start of this is when our ancestors cannot understand how, what, and why the things around them became like that. Since then, they believe that there is a great spirit that is the reason for everything that they cannot understand. As a result, they worship and made rituals to almost all of the things that they can sense. This includes the sun, moon, animals, trees, waters, and even the dead. Now in modern times, there are different religions that exist.
Some scientists believe that there is no such thing as free will; and describe free will as a random event which occurs in our brain. However, there is at least one counter-argument against it which is human tendency to take responsibility for what he does and going beyond other expectations. Moreover, human beings cannot predict the future and know whether their actions are right or wrong. Therefore, free will which is part of nature can give us the answer to this
Religions with common geographic origins have been known to share codes of behavior, views of nature, and reasons for existence. Three great geographic center of religious origins included Southwestern Asia, where Islam, Judaism, and Christianity originated. Also, East Asia, where Confucianism and Taoism originated, and South Asia, which included Hinduism and Buddhism. Religions associated with South West Asia center on a single supreme authority and seem to be less flexible when it comes to interpretation of religion. Religions associated with South Asia and East Asia appear to be more philosophical and focus on relationships with nature and are more flexible when it comes to interpretation.
The accounts in Genesis and in the Book of Mormon say that humans were created by God, and He saw His creation as good. They all use repetition to not only tell the story of human’s creation, but the creation of the Earth. In spite of all three of the accounts talking about the creation of man, they all go into different debts about the details of the creation of man. Genesis one and the Book of Mormon have similar descriptions of how man was made. Both do not have very detailed descriptions of the creation of man, but they both describe that man was created to have dominion over all inhabitants of the world.
Religion can help make sense of anything that occurs in one’s life whether good or bad. If it’s good, it is of God, but if it’s bad, it is automatically stated that it is of the devil. People are devilish and they should be rebuked and the devils cast from the souls of hell. Religion has been stated to provide inspiration, and is the force that bind individuals together. However, organized faith has its disadvantages.
Part B To the best of my understanding there could be more than one explanations for Satre’s assertion that “everything is permissible if God does not exist?" Firstly, it could be read to mean that without God we would have no inspiration to be moral. Unless we had the incentive of heavenly verdict or heavenly approval, then we would not actually care about being moral since we would not face any final accountability for our deeds, either in heaven or on earth.
This was just one of the main critiques of this argument. Along with the past two arguments, there is another argument that deals with God’s
