Admittedly one cannot have a fully satisfied spirituality on the argument from contingency or any other argument from God’s existence. But those arguments do serve an important purpose…they open the door something greater than the created world. This blog hopes to explore the boundless possibilities God existence opens up.
The modern world, and the pagan world before it, seeks happiness from the good things that life offers. The amount of unhappiness and isolation in society should give us reason to pause and see if there is a better way.
If there is a God, then one does not reject the world and all its good things, but will see them as guiding lights towards God. The supreme act of being from which all things come is the only thing that can satisfy the human heart.
All pleasures, all things, and even all human relationships fail to fully satisfy human beings. This is why “the pursuit of happiness” is a never ending quest. No one has, or even can, complete that pursuit in this life. But if there is a God then our way of seeing the world changes. The world does not have to sustain all of our desires, it just needs to point us to the One who can. Furthermore, human beings, because of their ability to know God have an infinity dignity that is independent of their talents, abilities or accomplishment.
Is God Good?
All goodness depends on being. Evils are the result of a lack of being. Hunger, for instance is from a lack of food. Evil action occurs when actions fail to possess their true purpose. Since being is manifested as goodness, truth and beauty God who is the sheer act of to-be itself must have all three. We can thus be assured that God does want to reach out to us, guide us and love us.
