    I do not find the three arguments I analyzed satisfactory for the existence of God. The existence of God simply cannot be proven. Regardless of how strong a person’s faith is, or how many miracles they claim to have witnessed, God can only ever be a possibility. First, I will discuss why Pascal’s wager is not a satisfying argument for the existence of God. I will then examine C.D. Broad’s “Argument for the Existence of God”, and why it is also not a satisfying argument for the existence of God.

    Throughout this course and learning more about God and the different perspectives on God. Everyone has a view on God and it starts on how you were brought up, whether your family is big on religion and the Christianity teaching or they are not and believe that there is no God. Like I said before in the last paper. I am a Christian, and I believe and have faith in God and I feel like the reason for this is how I was raised and how I taught that having faith in God and following his teachings would make me

    whether or not I believe in God, the responses I usually get back are let’s just say less than friendly. I am often reminded of the fact, constantly, that apparently God is all around us, and that if we look hard enough we can find God. However, I don’t believe we should have to look for God. If God were real, wouldn’t He reach out to us? When I’m told that I just have to believe and have faith that God is real, I often retort back with, “You just have to be more reasonable.” I personally do not need religion

    belief in God to allow the permission to get into the gold pearly gates, also known as Heaven. Pascal weighs out the good and the bad when believing in God to determine what he should believe. When weighing out the good it way over steps the bad, since the bad is a life long eternity spent in hell. The only down side is that there may have been a little time lost from your life when trying to learn more about God. Believing in God is a simple and a really easy choice to make, so you do not have to

    one that believes that there is only one God. Monotheists usually share the religion of Christianity, Judaism, or Islam. I happen to share the religion of Christianity and believe that there is only one God. I’m going to prove that no other Gods exist except for one. For the atheist and the polytheist, I will show you why your belief is false, and why you should change your belief to a monotheistic belief. First, I want to start with the three reasons why I believe that there is only one God. My first

    “As he explained to me that he didn’t yet believe in Christ and asked me questions about my faith, I prayed silently that the Holy Spirit would speck through me and open his eyes.” (Deadliest Monster pg. 61) The Lord has helped me in many situations in specking of my faith to others or telling others about the amazing gospel that Jesus died on the cross for our sins! Going to a park and giving random people the gospel isn’t easy but what is encouraging is when after asking a homeless guy if we

    Blaise Pascal makes us think about the question of whether God exists or not. Pascal does not really argue about the existence of God like the other people do, he looks at the choices in whether or not to believe. His argument leads to the question of, “Can belief in God be reduced to a wager?” Pascal’s wager is in the major field of epistemology, but could also be ethics/value theory. Epistemology is the knowledge with regard to its methods, validity, and scope. It is also the investigation of

    few issues of the Messenger I want to share with you a biblical Christian view on God’s values and design for sex, sexuality and relationships. I believe it is important that Christians know what we believe about sex, sexuality and relationships, but more importantly I believe we should also know the why or the basis of what we believe. So what is our underlying premise? What premise do people who do not believe in God or who do not believe that God has revealed his design or purpose for humanity
