HOW TO PROVE THAT GOD EXISTS by Scott M.Sullivan, Ph.D.


The Course

The goal here was to make a learning program that teaches total beginners, people without any training in this area at all, how to give a sound philosophical argument for the existence of God.

The aim of this course is to show you that knowing the existence of God is NOT irrational, it is NOT based on blind faith, no, the claim that God exists is a conclusion that the human intellect can reach through rational argumentation.
Now This sort of thinking is kind of a “lost Art” nowadays. Like I said, no one is ever taught these things anymore…

People who attend church are never shown these arguments. University students are never shown these arguments (at least not fairly anyway). And so the result is that most people assume there aren’t any good reasons for thinking that God exists.
And this is precisely the problem.
One of the reasons religion is so despised today is because a lot of people think it has no rational foundation. And there is a desperate need to reverse this trend.
That’s what this course is about. I want to revive these old arguments for the existence of God, broadcast them, get them into the hands of everyday believers just like you and help others see that the existence of God is something that can be known through human reason, apart from faith.

=================

If you aren’t sure about taking the course, or the expense of it, go to his site and checkout some of his podcasts, or YouTube Videos. I believe you will like his format & presentation(s). If you like him but still aren’t sure, get one of his cheaper courses for $7. You can’t go wrong! Especially, if you are like me…an ardent learner, reader, and listener of information & topics of importance. I believe we have an obligation to strengthen our faith, in order to spread the word of God successfully. Topics of evangelism are important, but more importantly is the topic of apologetics…we are called to “be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have...” ~ 1Peter 3:15 NIV

While I am not a Catholic, I am still a Christian. You do not have to be a Catholic in order to study these arguments. Also, many fail to realize that Catholics are part of the Christian faith, too. They simply have differing views on many issues that we do. For Christ, himself, spoke on matters such as this when He said, “whoever is not against us is for us.” ~Mark 9:38-41 NIV  God calls us to “be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble.” ~1Peter 3:8 NIV  The only way to do this is study the old church fathers, philosophers, and understand what they had to say on these subjects. After all, we are not the first to encounter these questions or topics. Read your bible and study it, fervently!

Believe it or not, we are all brothers and sisters in Christ, no matter the label!

Godspeed & Good Reads…& Listening!
