Existence of God, Does God Exist? Faith Matters #58

Tags: Faith Matters   God   

Q1 @ 01:40 An atheist colleague has put forward a few arguments that there is no God, I would appreciate your comments on these please: We pray sincerely knowing that when God answers these completely heartfelt unselfish non-materialistic prayers, it will glorify God and help millions of people in remarkable ways. Will anything happen? No, of course not. For example if "everyone who asks receives" then if we ask for cancer to be cured, it should be cured. If God gives good things to those who ask Him, then if we ask Him to cure cancer He should surely cure it, yet nothing happens.

Q2 @ 12:30 If a person dies of accident or a natural disaster or something bad happens to a believer it is said that it was the plan of God and was for a reason and it is actually good. This pre-destined does not make sense to me and looks like is all imagination. Please comment.

Q3 @ 20:55 If God was to exist, wouldn't you expect there to be a huge benefit to those who follow and obey Him, why do we instead see the opposite?

Q4 @ 25:25 Is there a point to life before heaven, is there a purpose of life here? If God wants what's best for everyone He could immediately place everyone in Heaven.

Book Review @ 31:35 Revelation, Rationality, Knowledge and Truth

Q5 @ 34:45 It is argued that people need to believe in God, because without God people will do bad things. Just because something is perceived as having a good consequence if it is true such as belief in God does not actually make it true. The fact that religiously free societies with proportionally large number of atheists are generally more peaceful than otherwise is evident this perception is incorrect. However this does not mean atheist are implicitly peaceful. Please comment.

Q6 @ 45:50 Why do we assume that God is good?

Q7 @ 51:10 Who made the devil and why?

Q8 @ 55:15 If God is all powerful why does he permit people to suffer and children to starve to death?
