The statement, "God exists," is a precisely stated proposition. Thus,
it is either true or false. The simple fact is, either God exists or
he does not. There is no middle ground. One cannot affirm logically
both the existence and nonexistence of God. The atheist boldly states
that God does not exist; the theist affirms just as boldly that God
does exist; the agnostic laments that there is not enough evidence to
make a decision on the matter; and the skeptic doubts that God's
existence can be proven with certainty. Who is correct? Does God exist
In this essay I am going to discuss the existence of God. I agree that
God exists but some people do not, I accept this and therefore am
going to produce a balanced essay for and against the existence of
The only way to answer this question, of course, is to find evidence.
It certainly is reasonable to suggest that if there is a God, he would
make available to us evidence adequate to the task of proving his
existence. But does such evidence exist?
Archaeological findings continue to confirm rather than refute the
accuracy of the Bible. For example, an archaeological find in northern
Israel in August 1993 confirmed the existence of King David, author of
many of the Psalms in the Bible. The Dead Sea Scrolls and other
archaeological discoveries continue to substantiate the historical
accuracy of the Bible.
The Bible was written over a 1500-year span, in different locations
and on separate continents, written in three different languages,
covering diverse subject matters at different points in history. Yet
there is an astounding consistency in its message. Throughout the
entire Bible the same message appears:
1. God created the world we live in, and created us specifically to
have a relationship with Him.
2. He deeply loves us.
3. He is holy and therefore cannot be in relationship with sinful
4. God provided a way for our sins to be forgiven.

- My claim that we have evil in this world because of our libertarian freedom does not fully answer the notion of “the problem of evil”. Saying we have evil in this world is just like saying we have bad decisions in this world. Bad decisions just like evil do not have a form. Every decision that God makes is a good decision therefore God cannot do evil. Human beings initiated evil. In fact, the first human beings (Adam and Eve) gave ongoing birth to evil because everyone ultimately came from them.... [tags: God, Evil, Hell, Heaven, Existance, Good]

- The existance of a god(s) has been a thought many have had over the course of history. The very idea of his existence affects how people view their life, how they live their life, their purpose or destiny in life, their source of morality and what they think will happen after death. Some people think there was only a possibility and that people just believed what they wanted to believed. After much research and reading, I can say i honestly do believe that a god does exist somewhere out there. Many do not believe that there is a possibilty of there being an almighty being somewhere out there but more than half the world does believe.... [tags: Jesus, New Testament, Bible, Christianity]

- The Existance Of God Either God exists or He doesn't. There is no middle ground, and any attempt to remain neutral in relation to God's existence is automatically synonymous with unbelief. It is far from a "moot" question, because if God does exist, then nothing else really matters; if He does not exist, then nothing really matters at all. This is kind of unfortunate for someone like myself, because I've always lived on that nonexistent middle ground. Until now I've never been put in a position where it was questioned....

- God’s Existence God's existence is a very intense argument topic. Whether God exists or not is a question thousand of people have been asking themselves and have been searching for proof whether to believe in his existence or not.

I chose this topic based on five questions; Firstly, everyone asks themselves whether something exists or not.... [tags: question, science, thomas aquinas]

- Religion and the existence of God is a topic that has been questioned, challenged, rebuked, ridiculed and researched for many years. Just speaking of it has caused specific banning’s in school and even physical abuse for those who dare to talk about it. With such a hot topic, one surely wonders if God does exist. For those that say he doesn’t, they want facts and evidence to back it up. For those who do believe, the facts speak for themselves through the Bible, nature itself and of course, man....

- Good and Evil This was written in responce to the following questions: In the story of Eden, eating the fruit of the tree of knowledge brings awareness of the distinction between good and evil.

- Why does God let people suffer analysis. In David Hume’s essay, Why Does God Let People Suffer, he allows the reader to question if God exists in the world we live in with all the pain and suffering that goes on. Hume suggests that an all powerful God, such as the one most believe in, would not allow a world to exist with this much pain and suffering that goes on daily. Moreover, Hume basically argues that the existence of God is something that cannot be proven in the way in which scientists look for and gather proof about other scientific issues....

- “Evil has no positive nature; but the loss of good has received the name 'evil.” Saint Augustine said this after much research and deep thought because evil is not easily defined. Evil comes in several forms and carried out in many ways, so that to point at one person and name them as the purist of evil is impossible. However, some traits of a person doing “bad” are recognizable. In “Good Country People” and “A Good Man is Hard to Find” Flannery O' Conner depicts evil as a mutation; however, the identity of the mutation is not limited to a common standard of evil....

- The ladybug life cycle is a 4-stage process called complete metamorphosis. It begins as an egg. Female ladybugs lay their eggs in clusters or lines of 10-15 on the underside of leaves, and can lay up to 2,000 eggs in her lifetime. This placement of laid eggs is to protect the eggs from being eaten by predators as well as weather. Ladybug eggs look like tiny yellow jelly beans. After about 4 days, the eggs hatch and the larva will come out and look for tiny mites or aphids to eat, which hopefully is close by if the mother ladybug laid her eggs in a good spot close to food....

- Evil can be characterized as or accompanied by misfortune or suffering; being unfortunate or disastrous. The presence of evil and suffering in our reality appears to present the argument of the existence of an immaculate God. In other words, the conclusion of the Basic Argument is that God doesn’t exist. If the conclusion is true, then perhaps the problem of evil is caused by human moral agents, not the deity or God. The conclusion matters if we want to understand why innocent people suffer. 1. If God exists, then God is all-powerful, all-knowing, and good.... [tags: God, Good and evil, Existence, Omnipotence]

5. He asks us to receive His forgiveness and have a relationship with
Him that will last eternally.
6. Along with this central script, the Bible specifically reveals
God's character. Psalm 145 is a typical summary of God's personality,
thoughts and feelings toward us.
6. Unlike any other revelation of God, Jesus Christ is the clearest,
most specific picture of God.
Many people do not believe in God and they most probably have their
reasons and they will most probably stick to their theory of
evolution, they will not change their minds. It is like if someone
refuses to believe that people have walked on the moon, then no amount
of information is going to change their thinking. Satellite footage of
astronauts walking on the moon, interviews with the astronauts, moon
rocks...all the evidence would be worthless, because the person has
already concluded that people cannot go to the moon.
We purely get our evidence from The Bible. The Bible is all the
evidence Christians need to believe but other people may believe in
other Gods and may have their own evidence to believe from.
I believe in God and have evidence from The Bible but others have
their own faiths to believe from, we have a lot of evidence to state
that Jesus exists and that is why I believe.
