In other words, God cannot be seen and people cannot see the prove of the existence of God. People believe that everything happen is because what we are and not originated from God. It is also difficult to rationally understand such existence and logical argument is also impossible because mainly these categories are remains unproven. Since people do not believe that morality comes from God, they also do not believe that the rule are comes from God. They might use the rule and change it according to their own interest.
A lot of arguments have been known to prove or disprove the existence of God, and the Problem of Evil is one of them. The Problem of Evil argues that it is impossible to have God and evil existing in the same world. Due to ideal characteristics of God, evil should not have a chance to exist and make human suffer. In this essay, I will examine the argument for the Problem of Evil, a possible theodicy against the argument, and reply to the theodicy. First of all, to be clear, the Problem of Evil is an argument that shows that God cannot be either all- powerful, all-knowing, and/or all good.

The gospel of John does not reflect some important episode of Jesus’ ministry mentioned in synoptic gospels. They include Jesus’ transfiguration, the institution of the Lord’s Supper and the temptation of Jesus (Luke 4:1-13). Similarly, there is no mention of any instance of Jesus casting out demons while the Lord 's sermon on the mountain is also not mentioned. ii. Inclusion by John Of Material Not Found In the Synoptic
These both theories, together explain the origins of religious thought. However, Durkheim proposed that religion did not originate form animism (as understood by Tylor) and from naturism (as understood by Max Muller). He argued that these two theories were inadequate to explain something as extraordinary as religion. Religion is something which is eminently social and is something which should be seen, which animism doesn’t allow. Coming to naturism, the people who follow it worship nature, however, in this case there is no distinction between sacred and profane.
Monotheism is defined by Merriam-Webster as the doctrine or belief that there is only one God. Belief in only one supreme God differentiates monotheism from other known belief systems including polytheism, which is the belief in many gods, agnosticism, or the view that an existence of God or gods is unknown and unknowable, and atheism, which is the absence of belief in any God or gods. The Greek mono translates to “single, or alone,” and the Greek theos means literally “a god.” Monotheism is generally thought to be characteristic of the Abrahamic religions of Christianity, Judaism and Islam. There are, however, many other lesser-known monotheistic religions throughout the world including Druzism, Smaritanism, Baha’i, Zoroastrianism and
Nestorianism, named after Nestorius, was built on the denial that Jesus was fully God and fully human at the same time; his explanation was something like a split personality between the human and the divine nature. The two natures could cannot coexist at the same time, however, they can switch back and forth; although Jesus has both natures inside on him, they could not both at the same time. Eutychianism was named after Eutyches, a man who opposed Nestorianism, who believed that Jesus’ divinity and human nature combined to create a new, third thing. He taught, “Christ’s humanity was so united with his divinity that it was not the same as ours” (Quash and Ward, 41). If Jesus was not able to be both man and God at the same time, he would not have the ability to save us from our sins.
Brave New World is a work of literature portraying a dystopian world. In this society, people are never sad or unsatisfied. In order to maintain stability, there are things that are abolished and kept away from society to keep everything running smoothly. One of these things is religion because it is seen as unnecessary and creates complications. On the other hand, the economy is widely worshiped and consumerism is a major key.
Both modernism and postmodernism worldviews approach ideas from a different perspective than the Christian worldview. The divisive central point is the reason for existence. Modernism and postmodernism are humanistic in structure. The Christian worldview is based on God. Knowledge base within modernism and postmodernism relies on the human based creation, while Christian worldview rests on the teachings of the Bible.
Monotheism and polytheism are two very different belief systems. Monotheism is the belief in only one God while polytheism is the belief in more than one God. Monotheism is known as something that is obtained from Judaism. Morality still exists within both of these beliefs. Some of the reasons that caused a shift between monotheism and polytheism are the reign of Pharaoh Akhenaten,
Religion is one way for all people to have inspiration to live through the tough times. If people make it through those tough times, they all have significant ways of showing appreciation to the powers that made it possible. The bases of their worship to those powers are what either makes the powers curse or grant them the pleasures that they seek. Looking back to the pagan religions of the New Testament times, there were many differences in how the twenty-first century monotheistic religions such as Christianity, Judaism, and Islam are practiced.
