Frequently Asked Questions
What are the communicable and non-communicable attributes of God?
The communicable attributes of God are those that we can understand and relate to. These include love, mercy, and justice. The incommunicable attributes of God are those that are beyond our understanding. These include his power, wisdom, and holiness. Even if we cannot understand all of God’s attributes, we can trust in His goodness and love.
Do all religions lead to God?
There is no one right answer to this question, as it depends on each person’s individual religious beliefs. However, many people believe that all religions ultimately lead to the same God, even if they may call Him by different names. This idea is known as religious pluralism and states that all religions teach similar moral values and truths. Although there may be some differences in theology or dogma, followers of different religions can still find common ground in their shared belief in a higher power.
How should we respond to those who don’t believe in God or question His existence?
Just as there are many different religions in the world, there are many different opinions about God. Some people believe in Him wholeheartedly, while others question His existence. Regardless of someone’s opinion about God, we should always respond with kindness and understanding. We should never try to impose our beliefs on others or condemn them, but let them come to their own conclusions. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and we should respect that.
These questions are just a starting point to understand the complexity of the concept of God. For some people, belief in God is self-evident and doesn’t require much thought or questioning. For others, grappling with these big questions is a necessary part of developing their personal beliefs about spirituality and the afterlife.
Regardless of where you stand, asking questions about religious beliefs can help you better understand yourself and the world around you.
