Reader Response Criticism to God's Determinations

- Reader Response Criticism to God's Determinations For the reader demanding either rational sense or aesthetic pleasure from poetry, reading the preface to Edward Taylor's "God's Determinations" is humbling in ways unintended by the 17th century Puritan minister and poet. "Rationality" per se seems rejected at the start, where we are asked first to comprehend "Infinity," and then to envision it (everything) "beholding" "all things"(also everything). "Things" get no clearer as we progress, as we find whatever "infinity" "beholds" in not everything but "nothing," and that "nothing" itself to become the building material for "all." Identifying the paradox, perhaps, as that which begins t...   [tags: God's Determinations Essays]

Is There A God?

- Essay #1: IS there a God. “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6) I believe that with this verse is where the first of many reasons to follow for those who “cry foul about the existence of God begins”. Hebrews 11:6 states that someone has to have faith in God in order to please him or believe in him.

The Belief Of A God

- Introduction There are many Christians that hold to the reality that there is one God who ultimately created everything that exists for his purpose. This reality can be defined as theism which is described as: belief in the existence of a god or gods; specifically: belief in the existence of one God viewed as the creative source of the human race and the world who transcends yet is immanent in the world” (Webster, 2016). Therefore, through the lenses of theism mankind can experience the simplicity of defining the existence of everything that exists, including mankind, Earth, and the rest of the universe....   [tags: God, Theology, Free will, Theodicy]

It is at this point that a zygote can be said to be male or female. However, the development of male or female sex organs is not determined until later in the sixth to seventh week of development.

The Trial of God

- Elie Wiesel’s the Trial of God represents the age-old question: how can a righteous God allow evil and suffering. Written as a play based on a real event, Wiesel tries to capture the myriad of emotions and theological arguments that were present. Though the trial, in Wiesel’s play, takes place during the seventeenth-century many cultural aspects overlap with twentieth-century Europe and World War II.

The Evil Of The God

- Evil exists. This is one simple truth that both sides of the God debate can agree upon. Under the definition of evil as “physical and mental suffering” (Swinburne 106), people experience evil first and secondhand every single day. Paper cuts, headaches, terminal illnesses, and death occur every minute. Theists and atheists see these evils from totally different perspectives. Richard Swinburne believes that he can justify both daily and monumental evil on behalf of an all-good God. B.C. Johnson takes the other side of the debate, and instead says that evil is direct proof that an all-good God can not exist....   [tags: Good and evil, God, Evil, Problem of evil]

Is Jesus Christ A God?

- Often in today’s world, the question is asked, “Who is Jesus?” And, the standard answer from most Catholics is He is the Son of God. While such a statement is true as far as it goes, it does not explain fully enough who Jesus really is. The Church teaches that Jesus Christ is one person having two natures. This, itself, is contrary to our human experience.

God Is Dead

- The phrase "God is dead" does not mean that Nietzsche believed in an actual God who has actually died, but the idea of him is gone in the modern world. Rather, it conveys his view that the Christian God is no longer a credible source of everyone’s daily lives and values. Year by year there are less believers in the Christian faith and I believe that this is what Nietzsche is referring to. Nietzsche recognizes the crisis that the death of God represents for existing moral assumptions. When someone gives up the Christian faith, it does not only affect that person but everyone around them....   [tags: Christianity, God, Atheism, Religion]

God And The Problem With Sin And Evil

First, who is God and what is His personality/characteristics, and second, what is sin and how does it affect humans and their relationship with God. By understanding these two different types of questions, one will understand the implications of evil and therefore be able to establish if God truly is evil or if sin truly is the root of all the evil in the world.
