An Argument For The Existance of God

Updated on August 11, 2009

Both philisophical and theological writers have come up with various definitions of God. As you read litiature from the great minds of the past you wil see such men as Plato. Spinoza, Leibniz, Aristotle to name a few. To Plato God is the eternal mind, the cause of good in nature. Aristotale considered him to be "the first ground of all being." Spinoza defined God as "the absolute, universal Substance, the real Cause of all and every existance; and not only the Cause of all being, but itself all being of which everry special existence is only a modification." Leibniz says that the final reason of things is called God.

Kirtly F. Mather, a geologist, says God is a spiritual power, immanent in the universe, who is involved in the hazard of his creation. Henry Slaon Coffin says, "God is to me that creative Force, behind and in the uiverse, who manifests himself as energy, as life, as order, as beauty, as thought,as conscience, as love." After all this phylisophical, platonic, and guru type rhetoric, they all fall short of the true definition of God. God is infinite, so a comprehensive definition giving a complete and exhaustive portrayal of God is impossible.

Buswell writes, "The best summary of the doctrine of God as taught in the Bible is found in answer to question four of the Westminster Shorter Catechism, 'What is God? God is spirit, infinate, eternal, and unchangeable, in His being, wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness, and truth." God has revealed Himelf and we have the ability to apprehend this revelation.
