...ical interaction with humankind (Novak, 2004). Rosenzweig, believe that special revelation is to love out of the experience of God’s covenantal love that manifest itself (McGrath, 2011).

However, Christianity in terms of sheer discontinuity, this tells that Christianity is the true ways of salvation and all other religions is false. Thus, sheer continuity has no basic different, nevertheless there is a distinction between two different and contrasting ways of God working in the world (Braaten, 2004). Therefore God reveals Himself in all religion whereas the way people adapt to its own cognitive knowledge of something or someone. General revelation refers to how humankind view their worldview within their religion by believing in some idol gods/Baal or some divine power of existence of human form.

- Does God exist. Since the appearance of mankind on the earth and up until today--would probably continue in the future--this question brought people to think, reason, and come up with the evidence, to present the best satisfactory answer. Back in 1200s, St. Thomas Aquinas has provided "five ways" to prove for the existence of God, which I am persuaded by, and hopefully others would see the same 'light' in this argument--unfortunately, it does not provide sufficient answers regarding the 'nature of God' (Bailey and Martin, 2011, 37)....

- Many of us have wondered about the role of a Deity, in defining our moral code, and this has been a subject of discourse among scholars and philosophers since centuries. Many define morality as the innate ability of the human conscience to draw input for decisions which they believe is present there by itself. While some say that the (belief on the) presence of God gives them strength and inspiration to overcome their inability to follow moral standards (which are already defined) especially when they conflict with their self-interests....

- This essay will argue that the eschatology of the Book of Revelation forms an integral part of John’s attempt within the pages of his book to form a literary world in which the forms, figures, and forces of the earthly realm are critiqued and unmasked through the re-focalization of existence from the perspective of heaven. It will attempt to show that, in response to the social, political, religious, and economic circumstances of his readers, the Book of Revelation forms a counter imaginative reality....

- Whereas Calvin asserts that the words of Scripture are the spectacles through which we see rightly, Kant believes that we give ourselves the law and the capacity to fulfill it. Moreover, Calvin believes that one can only come to self-knowledge through Scripture, while Kant asserts that one can have self-knowledge and then apply that knowledge to Scripture. Despite having these opposing views Calvin and Kant do agree, though not to the same degree, that God is unknowable which supports that Kant has not completely devalued the significance of Scripture and religion....

- The Mystery of God's Existence The mystery of God's existence has been a crucial element of many religious studies and traditions. Who is God. What is God. Where is God. To effectively discuss the existence of God, it is necessary to illustrate the notion of faith. People of faith believe that God does exist, and that relationship with God gives meaning to their lives. Others who are skeptical point to God as an obsolete hope of an ignorant human race. People today live in a world distinguished by sophisticated technology in which modern science has been a strong agent in questioning the existence of God.... [tags: Papers]

- Evil exists. This bizarre conundrum has perplexed philosophers since the dawn of civilization, and remains in hot debate today because of the theological implications inherent in the statement. To many on this planet, the source of life is an all-loving, all-powerful, omniscient god who created the universe – and all the laws therein – in seven days, as described in the Bible. And yet still, evil exists. How can these two premises be simultaneously true. Surely, an all-loving god would want to do something about this problem, and an all-powerful god could absolutely remedy a situation if it so desired.... [tags: Christian God and Evil]
