Assuming Existence

Who Is God? offers the silliest proof of god's existence yet.

Who is God? - The Fact most interesting use of that word, ever.

The fact of God’s existence is so conspicuous, through creation and through man’s conscience, that the Bible calls the atheist a “fool” (Psalm 14:1). Accordingly, the Bible never attempts to prove the existence of God; rather, it assumes His existence from the very beginning (Genesis 1:1). What the Bible does is reveal the nature, character, and work of God.

Yes, yes, yes, I'm a fool, because insulting people always makes them agree with you. However, if we accept "this book just assumes its characters' existences" as proof of their existence, then we'll have to start believing in a lot of things. Harry Potter, for example. Apparently, chances are good that I'll be teaching Advanced Muggle Studies at Hogwart's next semester.

Who is God? - The Definition

Thinking correctly about God is of utmost importance because a false idea about God is tantamount to idolatry. think of god exactly the way i do or burn forever! if this is true, you're probably better off not thinking about god at all, because if you do happen to pick the wrong idea, you're screwed. if you don't think about god at all, you're not worshipping properly, but at least you're not committing idolatry. In Psalm 50:21, God reproves the wicked man with this accusation: “you thought I was altogether like you.” To start with, a good summary definition of God is “the Supreme Being; the Creator and Ruler of all that is; the Self-existent One who is perfect in power, goodness, and wisdom.” well, that's a big help. that's an accurate definition of the god of judaism, christianity, and islam, to name a few.

Who is God? - His Character

Here is some of what the Bible reveals: God is just (Acts 17:31), loving (Ephesians 2:4-5), truthful (John 14:6), and holy (1 John 1:5). God shows compassion (2 Corinthians 1:3), mercy (Romans 9:15), and grace (Romans 5:17). God judges sin (Psalm 5:5) but also offers forgiveness (Psalm 130:4).

Here's some more of what the bible reveals about god:

god approves of rape.
god approves of slavery.
god approves of murder.
god is not prolife.

Well, that was fun. Now who's willing to write a reference for me to Hogwart's?


  1. Methinks these good folks need to mosey on over to their local dictionary and thumb through to the page with "axiom" on it.

  2. That's it- dictionaries for everyone.

  3. I think I got that beat for stupid "proofs"

  4. oh, that one is so much fun. and stupid.

  5. They defeat their own line of argumentation by admitting the Bible assumes the existence of said deity. All it proves is that a group of desert dwellers believed things about that god.

    It's like saying, ""The Prose Edda" assumes the existence of Odin and tells us all that the Norse gods think about unbelievers. Therefore it's quite obvious that Odin exists."

  6. then, if you click "i don't care" on the website EC shared, it sends you to an "exit" pages, you click the exit, it takes you here
