    Persuasive Essay About God

    • 1233 Words
    • 5 Pages

    You said that if God is as big as you believed He is, then you can search for truth without leaving Him. You are absolutely right. Any belief you hold should be because you believe it is true. God does not want you to falsely worship Him, second-guessing all the way if any of it is true. I challenge that God is so much bigger than you ever imagined. If He could send the Holy Spirit to show me my error, save me, and transform my heart with desires and love which surpasses anything I ever imagined, I guarantee He is bigger than the God you believe is holding a rule book and destroying His creation. I know this has been an extremely lengthly email, but I feel I must meet one more objection you raised. God 's will is destructive. You may recall how I argued in college that the Christian God could not exist because if He was…

    • 3 Pages

    III When it came to the Surrealist movement in art, the leader of that movement was more easily identifiable. It was Andre Breton, who also found fame later as a French poet.

This was an ironical state of affairs because Andre Breton and the Surrealists had formally expelled Salvador Dali from their art movement in 1939.…
