Furthermore, God is concerned about all that He has created. In fact, God is so concerned about His creation that He feeds, clothes and shelters them all. "God does not need us or the rest of creation for anything, yet we and the rest of creation can glorify him and bring him joy" (p. 161). God does not owe mankind anything, but mankind owes everything to God, including her life. Particular sections in the reading shares an interesting topic of God giving Himself glory.
I love the Lord and I am willing to be obedient to the calling he has restored on my life. I love you and Jesus loves you. If you need a friend and someone to talk to I am here and Jesus will also listen to you. Jesus loves you and will help you in any situation. All you must do is repent of your sins and accept him into your life.
Mavrodes explains that if god is omnipotent, then the stone question is a contradiction in and of itself. His reasoning makes logical sense because if one agrees that god is an all powerful entity, then there is no realm in which god can create something that he cannot lift. As Mavrodes articulates, the crux of the question is its built in attempt to imply that god is not omnipotent. And, if one believes that God is not omnipotent, then it follows that of course god would not be able to lift the stone, or would not be able to create a stone heavy enough to lift thus rendering him non-omnipotent. And, if one believes that god is omnipotent, then this question is irrelevant because this question is a contradiction.
By looking at the work of Saint Augustine and scriptures from Matthew we understand that with a desire to prosper it is possible to be “sucked into sin as if by a drug” (Saint Augustine). As a result of this understanding of envy, the relationship between desire and sin is made clear. In order to explain how this desire is used to prosper against others, we must first understand what desire is. Desire is a strong feeling
If God creates creatures that are significantly free, he cannot determine them to do only what is right meaning he must create creatures that are capable of moral evil. Therefore, God cannot guarantee that there will not be evil in the world because a world containing creatures that are significantly free to perform more moral good than evil actions are more valuable. An omnipotent being (God) can't make contradictions be true. Therefore, if God creates a world where there are beings with free will. God can't guarantee that some creatures won't sometimes choose to act badly.
However, when sin came to lord over human lives, they became self-centered with a heart bent on evil desires. Jesus Christ came into the world in order that through His death and resurrection, He could redeem humanity from the power of sin and be reconciled back to God’s love. Therefore, those who have been restored to God’s family, believing
(5) Hence we seem forced to conclude a being than which none greater could be conceived could be conceived to be greater than it is. (6) But that is absurd. (7) So (1) should be false. God must exist in reality as well as in the understanding. This reading of the argument is amply confirmed by the final paragraph, and this is the way he proves that it is true: “Therefore, if that than which nothing greater could be conceived exists in the understanding alone, the very being than which nothing greater could be conceived is one than which a better can be conceived.
If we accept good from God, shall we not accept evil?” (Job 2:9-10) But eventually Job asks God: “Why should the sufferer be born to see the light? Why is life given to men who find it so so bitter?” (Job 3:20) This was the story of Job in the Bible, in which he was given misfortunes in his life after God gave him success. It was a story that has been told again and again when I am young and this made me inquired of myself, if God really exists, that is to say powerful and good, why He did not take away all the bad things in the world and replaced it by good ones? As I become older, my doubts become larger, I started to question the existence of God and I had convinced myself that God does not really exist. Before I start my points in this argument, let me introduce myself to you.
If God were omnipotent, God would have the capacity to do something. Furthermore, if God were ethically flawless, then unquestionably God would want to do something about all the evil and suffering. But, yet there are still countless instances of evil that fills our world. Concluding, since God does not prevent or eliminate all unnecessary suffering, logically, God does not exist. Hume concludes that if you want to make sense of all the evil randomness of the universe with the sense of God’s attributes, “You must prove these pure, unmixed, and uncontrollable attributes from the present mixed and confused phenomena, and from these alone.
