God is One and Almighty

From the beginning men recognized an ultimate being who is above the laws of nature and exceeds the totality of human experience. The Temples of Malta are impressive Stone Age monuments and from archaeological evidence it seems very probable that these people, who perhaps had a matriarchal culture and did not possess the conscious understanding of the relationship between sex and conception, worshiped an ultimate being perhaps a mother goddess who controlled the changing seasons, life, birth and fertility. In ancient Greek times men were very important. The formation of the polis was also intended to make life worth living and gave the Greeks an identity. This was a revolution in thought. While in Egypt and Mesopotamia gods had no semblance to reality, the Greeks made their gods in their own image. The Greeks had a passion for using their minds. Christianity derived from a religion in which God created us in his own image. God is Holy and our whole life has to manifest this being in all levels. We do not have gods who sins. Our God is not subject to our will and our sins. Wherever we are acting we have to be acting according to God’s will whom we believe He is the Creator and the Almighty. Christ unlinks the dependence between God the Sovereign and man the subject. There cannot be more evidence to suggest that God exists and He is the supreme, more than when Jesus was amongst us, he took flesh and became a man. Man was enthroned and Christ fulfilled the promise of redemption. The Vienna Circle, influenced by the theories of Ludwig Wittgenstein, held that meaningful statements can be categorized as mathematical statements, e.g. 2 +2 = 4, tautologies, e.g. all cats are cats, and logically necessary statements, e.g. Not both p and not p (Davies, B., An Introduction to the Philosophy of Religion, Oxford University Press, Oxford, 1993, p. 2.). According to Hume if a term doesn’t contain any experimental reasoning, concerning matter of fact and existence, it is only illusion.(Selby- Bigge, L.A., ed., Hume: An Enquiry concerning Human Understanding, Oxford University Press, Oxford, 1975, p. 165. ) However God is beyond human experience and at the same time can be experienced by us through faith.
