    Therefore: The world has an adequate cause outside itself which produced it, namely God. Both are true, but not in an absolute sense. This does not mean we ignore the writings of these men as they have sought to represent what the Scripture teaches, but our final conclusions need to be based on Scripture itself as much as is humanly possible. The earth itself is evidence of design. These are either a product of rationalization or the failure of men to accept the Word of God by faith or both. The moral issue always overshadows the intellectual or evidential issues.

    If the blessed life is to be attained in a direct vision of God in heaven, then there is little to no reason to ask for more than the bare minimum required to get into heaven justification. Here the supernatural is generally explained away by human reason and its bias against the supernatural, i. He says Descartes reasons in a circle because according to Descartes since we know that God exists what we clearly and distinctly perceive is true. We are each the result of a personal God who created us for Himself with meaning and purpose. From this assumption, Descartes jumps to the conclusion that God does indeed exist; however, can this be considered as a legitimate reasoning and be accepted as a proof beyond reasonable doubt? Conclusion The naturalistic arguments which debate the existence of God engender various philosophies.

    On the other hand, free will is a freedom to choose which is infinite. Faith is the primary and Biblical means of perception Heb. Stated in the form of a syllogism the argument is as follows: Major Premise: An intuitive and universal belief among men must be true. It is in the nature of faith that it is quaerens intellectum; but an intellectus which is not allowed to press its own quaestio to that limit which is in fact the unlimited mystery of creation can be partner only to an impoverished and much diminished faith.

That it was the Christians who were able to resist religious mixtures, syncretism, and the effects of the weakness of Roman culture speaks of the strength The clarity of Gods existence book the Christian world view. People are unique in the inner life of the mind—what they are in their thought world determines how they act.

God also revealed Himself in the words of Scripture and in the miraculous deeds recorded there. Anderson offers an explanation as to why traditional proofs have failed, and for what is necessary to offer a proof that not only The clarity of Gods existence book to Hume and Kant but also establishes the clarity of God's existence.

His book on Stoicism has been written with exceptional verbal clarity and precision. No more important words have ever been uttered or written. After considering the traditional proofs, and tracing the history of challenges to theistic proofs from Hume to Kant and down to the twentieth centuryAnderson argues that the standard methods of apologetics have failed to sufficiently respond.

The commentaries were also very readable and worthwhile, and include a wide range of literary and philosophical references. Such verses would be meaningless unless there was some kind of clear and objective evidence by which men could come to a knowledge and conviction of the truth.

It must be conceded that once reached the real conclusion of the argument, the Cartesian method would forbid the sceptic to reply that perhaps the cartesian proof was suggested to the meditator by the evil genius itself, in the first place thereby accusing Descartes of vicious circularity.

Alleged intellectual problems are often a smoke screen covering moral rebellion. You may disagree with the claims — though if you think they are falsified by modern physics, you are sorely mistaken — but you cannot justly accuse the defender of the cosmological argument either of saying something manifestly silly or of contradicting himself when he goes on to say that God is uncaused.

A true and accurate systematic theology must also be an exegetical theology and a revealed or scriptural theology. Minor Premise: The belief that there is a God is universal and intuitive among men.

Too often, I'm afraid, this overconfidence is based on philosophical illiteracy. Morally, philosophically, and theologically, everything is simply relative. But emotion [passion] would be unlikely.

Minor Premise: The world is an effect. And I think Thomas agrees. At least they have been warned. Hence, out of a desire to stick to the point, I have resisted a wider discussion which would have distracted from it.

Its distance from the sun is correct—even a small change would make it too hot or too cold. Materialism: This is the system which tries to explain everything by physical causes which can be observed and understood.

This system acknowledges that there is a God, that He is personal, infinite, holy, and the Creator of all things, but denies that He sustains the universe. People, whether they realize it or not, have a set of presuppositions which form their doctrinal viewpoint or theological perspective about God, the world, and man himself.

Let it be stated clearly again here by way of introduction, to deny the existence of the God of the Bible is to repudiate the Christ of Scripture. First, the knowledge of the existence of God means that man is put here by design.
