Session 3 - The Existence of God
Upon completion of this session, the student should have an understanding of the major arguments for the existence of God. The student will be challenged to answer the question “Why is there something rather than nothing?” learning that all responses other than “a self-existing God created all that there is” are insufficient and self-defeating. A detailed study of the cosmological, ontological, teleological, and moral arguments for God’s existence will be examined and critiqued. The student should also be convinced that the study of God’s existence is not merely profitable for apologetic purposes to those outside the faith, but is also profitable for discipleship purposes to those who already believe, making their faith grow stronger.
