    With the title "Religion and Science," Einstein distinguished three human impulses which develop religious belief: fear, social or moral concerns, and a cosmic religious feeling. A primitive understanding of causality causes fear, and the fearful invent supernatural beings analogous to themselves.   Question: "Why should I believe in God?"

      WHY BELIEVE IN GOD- Downfalls of Atheism The next reason I believe there’s a God is that atheism is incapable of accounting for the vast array of phenomena which we experience every single day. An atheistic world view cannot adequately account for such things as, the universal laws of logic, laws of science, not to mention, standards of morality. “For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. But for those of us who can't readily accept the God formula, the big answers don't remain stone-written. We adjust to new conditions and discoveries. We are pliable. Love need not be a command nor faith a dictum. I am my own god.

WHY I BELIEVE IN IMMORTALITY DOUGLAS CLYDE MACINTOSH, PH.D.

Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut I believe in immortality because I believe in man and because I believe in God. All else is auxiliary, supplementary. What I mean when I say here that I believe in man is that man's value, actual and potential,is such that his exist.

The first is one of a dogmatic nature—namely, that you must believe in God and immortality. If you do not believe in those two things, I do not think that you can properly call yourself a Christian.

Then, further than that, as the name implies, you must have some kind of belief about Christ. The Mohammedans, for instance, also believe in God and in immortality, and yet they would not call themselves Size: 68KB.

The argument stands thus: God is immortal; man was made in the image of God, therefore man is immortal. The syllogism, however, proves too much, for it assumes that, because man was made in the image or likeness of God, man must be like God in every respect; else why select immortality from among the attributes of Deity.

Why I Believe in God. Why I Believe in God - A Believer’s Answer to an Atheist What is it with the atheists these days. Lately I’ve read a lot of web articles written by angry atheists including many news articles about those crazy Christians and what superstitious fools they are, and that science has proven there is no God and Darwin was right and blah, blah, blah, ad infinitum, ad : Acray.

Nevertheless we are asked to believe that the Scriptures teach that God will thus torture “immortal human souls” for all time and eternity. Yet the Christian who believes in conditional immortality also believes that God is just and righteous. He rejoices in “just and right is He” (Deuteronomy ).

The Greek concept of the immortal soul assumes that individuals already possess eternal life - that the only question is where this eternal life is spent after death. In stark contrast, many Bible passages portray immortality strictly as a gift to be given by God.

Paul refers directly to the fact that God alone has immortality (1Timothy ). Russell groups the beliefs in God and immortality together as a single belief: belief in God and immortality. In the subsequent discussion, he focuses entirely on belief in God, allowing belief in immortality to slip from the picture.

There is no logical error here -- belief in God and immortality lapses if belief in God lapses. I believe in God because he has left his fingerprints everywhere. I believe in God because he revealed himself in Jesus. I believe in God because Jesus died and rose again.

And I believe in God because he revealed himself to me, gave me eyes to see and faith to believe, and drew me by his Spirit to embrace his Son as my Savior. There are effectively two books in Adam Leigh Gollner's "The Book of Immortality". The first is a discussion of the various beliefs that have sprung up over time dealing with how humanity relates to death and the subject of immortalitybe it physical, spiritual, or other/5.

This is the third path, the belief in the soul. Something pure, some spark of the divine that won’t age or succumb to disease, that we can live on through. Belief in the soul is probably the most widespread of all the immortality narratives, but it too has problems from the philosophical perspective.

Zoroastrian beliefs about God One God. Zoroastrians believe in one God, called Ahura Mazda (meaning 'Wise Lord'). He is compassionate, just, and is the creator of the universe. Paul spoke of an immortality that is intrinsic to the very being of God.

See my commentary, Before I Die (, ; cf. Thayer13). This phrase, therefore, would not negate the concept, as taught in other passages, that man possesses an immortality that was imparted to. God gave His Son that whoever believes in Him would not perish in his inward spiritual nature and physical body but would be able to gain eternal life and immortality.

In the eighth chapter of the Book of Romans the Apostle Paul describes how the grace of God frees us from the Law of Moses that we might gain true inward eternal life and then.

The onus is ours, however, as conditionalists, to back up this bold claim that God’s immortality is exclusive.

Ours is the minority position. That is why a study of the terms used in the Bible to imply immortality is helpful.
