HOME   People do good because they are human, not because they are religious! 

Do not give God any credit for the good they do, they did it!

 

Chapter 4, The Nature of God
 
Handbook of Christian Apologetics Says
 
God is unlimited if there were another God the two Gods would need to be different to be separate but this would mean there was something one God was that the other was not. This would be a limitation.
 
Reason says,
 
This is correct reasoning. It says that there can be nothing outside God. But traditional religion claims that God created all things out of nothing and that he is not the creation. So God created energy and things that he isn’t. The creation then is what God is not. The creation implies a limitation to God so God is not unlimited. The alternative is to hold that God turned himself into the creation.
 
Handbook of Christian Apologetics Says


God is spiritual (a non-material being) for he is infinite and the limitless fullness of being. This means he is the one being that depends on nothing to exist. His existence cannot end while that of anything else can for it depends on him.
 
Reason replies:

 

Correct. But we are still left wondering does God exist?
 
Handbook of Christian Apologetics Says

 

God is the source of all being therefore God is good
 
Reason replies:

 

This is very unclear. Some kind of knavery is going on here.
 
Handbook of Christian Apologetics Says

 

God is not male but we should call him, him and he and male because the idea of God as mother gives the following idea. Mothers make babies from their own bodies. A mother God would be like a God who turns herself not the universe. The father is separate from his creation and does not make the baby in the way his woman does.  Even though the Bible sometimes uses feminine symbolism about God it refers to him as if he were male and so should we
 
Reason replies:

 

Mothers do not make babies from their own bodies differently from men. Both provide a seed. The baby makes itself from the nutrients provided by the mother not from the mother’s body.
 
What he really means is that though the Bible sometimes indicates that God is mother we should ignore it in favour of the more numerous statements in the Bible that he is father.
 
Calling God male is an insult to women and even more so when God is sexless.
 
If God became man in Christ then God experienced life as a man. God valued life as a man but not as a woman. The concept is certainly anti-women.
