Etymology of the Word “God” Discusses the root-meaning of the name “God”, which is derived from Gothic and Sanskrit roots. Existence of God Formal dogmatic Atheism is self-refuting, and has never won the reasoned assent of any considerable number of men. Nor can Polytheism ever satisfy the mind of a philosopher. But there are several varieties of what may be described as virtual Atheism which cannot be dismissed so quickly. Nature and Attributes of God In this article, we proceed by deductive analysis to examine the nature and attributes of God to the extent required by our limited philosophical scope. We will treat accordingly of the infinity, unity, and simplicity of God, adding some remarks on Divine personality. Relation of God to the Universe The world is essentially dependent on God, and this dependence implies 1 that God is the Creator of the world — the producer of its whole substance; and 2 that its continuance in being at every moment is due to His sustaining power. The Blessed Trinity The Trinity is the term employed to signify the central doctrine of the Christian religion — the truth that in the unity of the Godhead there are Three truly distinct Persons:
If so, Lisa E. Dear Friend, Are you currently dealing with the pain of being involved with a Narcissist? Has the mental exhaustion of being involved in a Narcissistic Relationship left you heartbroken, numb, and full of despair?
It is a widely accepted doctrine among Christians today that the disciples and Ebionite Nazirene followers did not comprehend the true nature of Jesus, because they did not proclaim that he was God — as did the later Gentile converts.
In this post, I go over my experience: Halloween in Medellin is fun. I first wrote this post about my dating experience in Medellin back in April of Places frequented by tourists in Medellin are more saturated with foreigners than before. I am aware of the underworld of sex tourism and prostitution in Colombia and I know that there are many strip clubs and brothels in Medellin; however, strippers and pros are not the types of girls that I date, nor is it something I would like to promote; therefore, I will not be referring to that in this post.
Also, this is a narrative of my own experiences.
How Do I Know God’s Will for a Marriage Partner
Share on Facebook This is a throwback to a previous post. The idea is to look for love in the right places. This does not mean that we should serve because we might find love.

Self-awareness was given to us because with the knowledge of Good and Evil, we now became aware that we had a choice between doing what is good and doing what is evil. The choice to serve God or serve ourselves. We are all born self-centered and selfish. Each of us has only one body and one brain and we barely have enough capacity, ability and love for what affects us directly.
We are captives to ourselves. None of us really understands what makes another person tick. We don’t know anyone else’s thought process and we cannot feel anyone else’s feelings, but we know how we feel, what we think and what we want.

I have spent most of my life in church and have gotten a lot out of it. Going to church served my spiritual growth and I spent many years serving the body of believers I was going to church with. At some point, however, the whole process and lifestyle stopped feeding me. I share in the spirit of encouragement, because my love and faith in God has grown steady, deep, and strong over the past 10 years without going to church. Some time ago, I really struggled with how much I had to do that drained me in order to be close to God.
For me that included reading the bible every day, having morning quiet times, giving up 3 hours on Sunday to go to church, listening to sermons, and volunteering for church ministries. How bored I was. How dead it all made me feel. I had collapsed my relationship with God with the duties.
What No One Tells You
An ontological argument for the existence of God was first proposed by Avicenna in the Metaphysics section of The Book of Healing   Other forms of the argument also appear in Avicenna’s other works, and this argument became known as the Proof of the Truthful. Avicenna initiated a full-fledged inquiry into the question of being , in which he distinguished between essence Mahiat and existence Wujud.
He argued that the fact of existence can not be inferred from or accounted for by the essence of existing things and that form and matter by themselves cannot interact and originate the movement of the universe or the progressive actualization of existing things.

No way, they were so in love at their wedding! So obviously on cloud nine! Come to think of it, she hardly says anything about him at all… Can you Spot a Narcissist? THIS is where the narcissists hide.
Were talking about charming, charismatic, handsome, friendly guys here. But if you look a little deeper, you see the marks of someone toxic in their past relationships, in the sadness that never totally leaves the eyes of his wife, in the way she watches and protects her children or worse, in the way she wont, too afraid to love them too much. Or in the devastated, wrecked ex-wife, whose name he drags through the mud on every occasion, who has succumbed to self destruction because she cant understand what happened to her, and still blames herself.
Pray to God for a Miracle
Candice January 11, at We were living in fornication even though I did not enjoy only did it to please him and keep him because everyone told me no man can live without sex in this age. I would always repent and ask the father for forgiveness and we would stop.
A personal god is a deity who can be related to as a person instead of as an impersonal force, such as the Absolute, “the All”, or the “Ground of Being”.. In the scriptures of the Abrahamic religions, God is described as being a personal creator, speaking in the first person and showing emotion such as anger and pride, and sometimes appearing in anthropomorphic shape.

I was once taken through the engineering shops in the Devonport dockyard. I saw innumerable machines busy at various kinds of work, most of them making considerable noise in the process.
Then my conductor took me to a room which by contrast was almost silent, where a great engine was working smoothly and quietly.
