Can we believe in God in the scientific age?

This page in brief …. So far in this 6 Reasons to disbelieve in God series, we have looked at the problem of evil, and the so-called hiddenness of God (if he’s so hard to see, maybe he’s not there). This post we examine the thought that religion is the way a bygone age thought, […]

God and life in a time of plague

All the news is about the coronavirus and the importance of us all (in most countries at least) staying home as much as possible, avoiding close contact with people outside our home, and practicing extreme cleanliness. There’s more I could say, but hopefully you’re all checking much more expert sources than me! This blog is […]

Is God hiding or just not there?

This page in brief …. For most people God isn’t evident in the world, but is hidden. But why would a loving God hide from us? Perhaps he’s not there after all? Or perhaps there is some reason why she’s hidden from most of us? This is the second post in our examination of possible […]

Do suffering and evil prove there’s no God?

This page in brief …. I have written extensively on reasons to believe God exists. So I thought it only right to consider the counter arguments, reasons to disbelieve in God.

12. It works (mostly!)

This page in brief …. In the previous eleven posts in this series, we have seen that many different aspects of life (the universe, human life, the history of Jesus and human experience) all seem to make more sense if there is a creator God, than if there is not. In this final post, we […]

11. Finding God in everyday life

What this page is about We have seen that some people appear to have experienced God through a healing, a vision or other “peak” experience. But what of the rest of us, who haven’t had such an experience? Does God communicate in more “ordinary” ways? Does this make a difference in people’s lives? In this […]

9. Does the historical Jesus reveal God?

This page in brief …. Christians believe that Jesus showed us what God is like. If that claim is true, we have a strong reason to believe God really exists. So in this page we look at three criteria that we might use to evaluate this claim – the historical evidence for Jesus’ life and […]

8. Experiencing God in a deep way?

This page in brief …. Some people have deep spiritual, or mystical, experiences. Many of them believe they have experienced God. Psychologists have examined these experiences, which are very real, and can describe some of their common characteristics. Could this really be God communicating with people? Let’s look at the evidence that psychologists have uncovered.
