The Gods Are Not To Blame

argument that if an omnibenevolent and omnipotent God were to exist, he would not condone the apparent suffering and evil that takes place.

Gods Existence

The belief in the Christian Gods existence has been a controversial issue for a very long time. The Holy Bible is a lot of things to a lot of people.

Others, such as Christians, believe that it is a guide on how to live their daily lives and it is a source of inspiration. I personally believe that the existence of God is nonsensical. "If the truth is that ugly - which it is - then we do have to be careful about...

If you choose (1) God’s commands make things good, it would mean that if God commanded that ‘rape is not wrong’, then there would be nothing morally wrong with rape. Some philosophers do not like this view as it could mean that God is a divine dictator because whatever God commands is the law. Option (2) suggests that God only commands what is good.

The Doctrine of God What I learned about the Doctrine of God is God’s existence, first of all. God existence is definitely taken for granted in the Bible. The writers of the Old and New Testament knew God existed so they thought it pointless to put it in there. Jacobi said, “A God capable of proof is no God at all.” So if God had to prove He existed, then that would take all of the power out of God Being God. So, in the Bible God existing is an understood matter. The arguments for the existence...
