Mitchell Silver reveals what is at stake in the choice between naturalistic liberal theology and a nontheistic naturalism without gods. At least since the seventeenth century, the traditional God of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam has been under pressure to conform to the scientific worldview.

Does belief in so malleable a deity come from, or lead to, different political, moral, psychological, or aesthetic phenomena from atheism?A Plausible God evaluates the new God by analyzing the theology of three recent Jewish thinkers -Mordechai Kaplan, Michael Lerner, and Arthur Green-and compares faith in the new God to disbelief in any gods.

A Plausible God is Silver’s effort to discover whether this makes any more sense than the jailer’s happy reverie to Russell. The inquiry is not just an intellectual exercise, for presumably what motivates new God faith, like any faith, is some kind of felt need.

A Plausible God  book is a brilliant exposition of the vast shift in thinking about God that marks so much modern theology - Jewish and Christian. Many theologians continue to speak of God without believing in the God of the Bible. Consider, for instance, God’s revelation of the divine name to Moses from the burning bush in the book of Exodus.

God says I am that I am, at least according to most English translations. Second, if God is the designer, God is not a finite, material, or contingent being by definition. God, rather, is self-existent (Acts).

Get currently the soft data of this book The Trinity & Subordinationism. The Bible explicitly tells us that God has one, which indicates he had to be distinguished from other celestial beings, just like humans use names to identify different people.

What that name might be is another matter. The Jewish prohibition on speaking God’s name means that its correct pronunciation has been lost. Scientifically plausible mental pictures of God, compatible with both traditional religions and contemporary science, let us allow ourselves to, in the words of William James, “adopt a believing attitude in religious matters, in spite of the fact that our merely logical intellect may not have been coerced.” I think this is a much (perhaps the most) needed thing at this moment.

Their theory may be plausible, but so is ours, and the weight of evidence is such that, at the end of the day, it takes more faith to believe that God does not exist than to believe that he does.

Once we have shown that believing in God is reasonable, we can invite people to step from evidence into experience.

At least two of St. Thomas Aquinas’s five proofs for the existence of God, still widely repudiated by atheists as primitive and without rational foundation, are making a dramatic comeback, as former atheist Antony Flew admits in his latest book, There Is a God.

We Should Acknowledge one Only God. to be divine, he would be reckoned among impure men, and a stranger to life and controverse. [] This book is a luminous, eloquent, idealizing, and plausible defense of the characteristic doctrines of Romanism.

The most plausible conjecture, perhaps, is that which connects it with the Assyrian. I. Introduction A. The Author. There are three pieces of evidence to consider: title, external evidence, and internal evidence.

The Title. As with the other gospels, no MSS which contain John’s Gospel 1 affirm authorship by anyone other than John. 2 Once again, as with the others, this is short of proof of Johannine authorship, but the unbroken stream suggests recognition (or at least.

They cut the. The Science of God: The Convergence of Scientific and Biblical Wisdom. New York: The Free Press. xii+ pp. The main thesis of this book--as the subtitle suggests--is that there is a convergence between modern scientific discoveries and the ancient wisdom of the Old. The thesis of the book may be stated simply: it is an argument based upon the four prophetic texts of Jer ; Zech ; ; and Isa as a foundational pattern for the four Gospels.

These four prophetic texts, it will be argued, mention a King Branch, a Servant Branch, a Man/Priest Branch, and a Lord God Branch. This study seeks to show how Matthew presents Jesus as the King Branch, Mark.

So if the theist proposes to take God as the paradigm of goodness, how plausible is that ontology. It seems to me that you argue effectively for its plausibility. First, as you point out in your first and third arguments, apart from God to ground moral values, there just doesn’t seem to be anything else that could plausibly do the job.

That being the case, when our teaching about God goes astray, so does our teaching about everything else. In my book The Name: A History of the Dual-Gendered Hebrew Name for God (Wipf & Stock, ) I set out the case that the earliest worshippers of YHWH understood God to be a “male-female” deity.

Reading the Hebrew Bible in a non-gendered language such as English, much (though not all) of this gets lost in translation. The book is characterized by a number of word signs and work signs: “I am the light of the world” (), “the bread of life” (), “the way, the truth, and the life” (), all which affirm that Christ is indeed the savior and son of God.

The final book, book XXII, tells of the end of the city of God, after which the saved will be given eternal happiness and will become immortal.

Analysis. Augustine created a theology of the self in The Confessions, and in The City of God he initiates a theology of history. He uncovers a wide-ranging explanation of history that begins with.

* David, great king of Israel & a man after God’s own heart, was the 8th son of Jesse. The book of Job has long puzzled many Bible readers.

The entire story appears to make it look as though God allows Satan to torment Job with every manner of hardship just to prove to Satan that he was wrong in saying that the only reason Job worships God is because God blessed him with a happy life.

In other words, it looks as though God's only reason for letting Satan afflict Job was to win a. When Christians read the Book of Revelation, they read about a figure coming into Jerusalem from the outside and occupying Jerusalem, and in fact, sitting in a temple of God, claiming to be God. 2.

God is not a Plausible Explaination for the Universe: God is Truth Atheists have often argued that God is not a plausible explanation for the universe.

What they mean by that is that we don't know enough about God to judge the value of the explanation, and that issues such as the complexity problem prevent a clear understanding. 2. While Jewish scholars have interpreted the book as God’s love for Israel, Christian scholars have interpreted the book as God’s love for the church 3.

The allegorical interpretation requires a spiritual counterpart for every physical detail; it is objectionable to equate Solomon and his herem to Christ. 4.
