Monotheism is the belief in only one god. For many, there is a lot of different "gods". However, I choice to believe in the one true God. Some people have asked me, "Why do you believe in God?

Have you ever thought of who created the flowers beauty? Have you ever stopped and looked at the sun setting and see the marvelous colors presented in the sky? Have you ever wondered who creates beautiful pictures like that everyday? Have you ever stopped to think about who makes the sun rise and set, day after day? In my day to day life, I think about these things all the time. Let 's take a butterfly for as an example. A butterfly isn 't a butterfly at first, but is rather a caterpillar that hatches from an egg. As the caterpillar grows, it then makes a protective casing called a chrysalis. During its time in the chrysalis, the caterpillar changes and eventually comes out as a beautiful butterfly. Now how can one explain this without saying God created this amazing phenomenon? It is because of Gods grace that turns this caterpillar into an amazing butterfly. So it God cares about this little bug, then why wouldn 't he care for the plants and other animals on this earth? When looking at the beauty all around me, I think, "How do people choose to believe that God didn 't create every little detail on this earth? How do people think everything around them was created by "the Big Bang""? If God can create the wonders of nature, and he cares about a little sparrow, worth not even a penny falling from a tree, then why wouldn 't he care for us? God cares for every living thing, from the small sparrows, to us. He knows …show more content…
In John 16:33, God states "I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world." This scripture reminds me everyday that yes there is pain and suffering, but God is in control of everything. I believe that God gives us pain and suffering to help us build our faith in him. He wants to push our strength and our faith in him. He wants us to know that he is in control of everything and he is there to make everything better. Unfortunately, the world has to have pain and suffering, so that everyone will know that evil can be overcome. The only way anyone will ever overcome evil, is putting their faith in God. The bible states the phrase "do not be afraid" 365 times. This is a daily reminder to me that God is in charge of my life and he wants me to live my life being fearless because he will take care of everything. In Philippians 4:19 ESV, it states "And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus." This makes me realize that God will take care of everything and that I do not need to worry of be

    Contrasting Grace through Augustine and Scripture Throughout the confession of Augustine we see many ideas brought up that are found in scripture. One of the most controversial and important ideas is the topic of Grace. Augustine addresses this topic through speaking about how God uses our own lives to make us realize that we sin and need repentance. In order to talk about grace and how grace can help us to receive conviction about our sins we must first define what grace is. Grace is “the freely given, unmerited favor and love of God.” According to Augustine in his confession he states “All agree that they want to be happy, just as, if they were asked, they would all agree that they desired joy.” What Augustus means by saying this is that…

    When God created humans, he had a purpose in mind for us, he didn’t create us to just be a random clump of cells with no purpose in life. In the stories throughout Genesis 1 – 11, we see that God is infinite and has no limits, he is all things good and he bring order and direction to our lives. God gives us a reason and purpose and can guide us on how to act. Throughout life we make choices and they can either bring us closer to god or on the other hand strain our relationship with God through sin. Known from salvation history, God is always offering a relationship with us and wanting to be close with us.…

    Suffering is in the world all around us, it is a fact of life (2) and it can teach us many things that help us to become better human beings. People often blame God for all of the pain and tragedy in the world; if we are going to learn from suffering and allow it to teach us about the world whilst remaining faithful to God, we must understand that God created a good world and good human beings, His creation has been infected by the introduction of sin, which resulted in the creation of evil and suffering (4). Man was given the option to accept or reject God, Man chose to reject and that is what has caused him to sin and therefore create suffering (5). Part of learning about the world is understanding that people are not perfect, we learn this…

    Because we are made in His image, we are supposed to be merciful to others, just like God is (Luke 6:36). God tells us that we will be blessed if we show mercy because then, we will have mercy shown to us (Matthew 5:7). Some people ask, “Why doesn’t God show mercy to the people who suffer?” Well, the Bible invites us into suffering because when we join the sufferings of Christians, we become a good soldier of Christ Jesus (2 Timothy 2:3). Not just a soldier, but a good soldier. God allows suffering because He loves us.…

    Although humans are all flawed and sinful in nature, God always provides mercy to those who seek it through repentance. This is a central theme that is prevalent throughout the entire Bible. Bishop Robert Barron explained clearly in his book Vibrant Paradoxes: The Both/ And of Catholicism the relationship between sin and mercy. God became flesh through the incarnation and bore the sins of all humans so that we could all receive forgiveness, even though we don’t deserve it. The main point of the chapter titled Sin and Mercy was to emphasize and explain in further detail the relationship between sin and mercy.…

    Suffering brings us closer to God, because we crave guidance and assistance from our heavenly father, as his children we need God to hear our prayers in our time of need and guide us through a path that over comes all Evil. My view as I have explained is that the existence of suffering and Evil in the world is not an outcome of an unfair or cruel God, but of the misuse of free will, by humanity. To me God is all knowing, all powerful, and loving; which is why he is our guide through the problem of…
