Is There a God?

argument that if an omnibenevolent and omnipotent God were to exist, he would not condone the apparent suffering and evil that takes place. This argument was first proposed by the Greek philosopher Epicurus who devised: “Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing?

The Goodness Of God

goodness is defined: Is an action good because: 1) God commands it, or 2) God commands what is good? The choice to be made is double-edged. 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.

Faith In God

Elie has been a follower of God ever since he was brought into this world, and truthfully I cannot imagine him ever giving up hope in his God. I would have to say probably the only thing in the world that could have ever managed to make Elie even doubt his God one bit would be the holocaust. It would be understandable because throught the entire novel he is faced with many 'obsticles' that would have easily made anyone turn their backs on God. Elie is a different case though, from a young age starting...

"Whoever is without love does not know God, for...

One can call general revelation natural revelation, not because it comes naturally to us but because it takes place within the realm of nature.
