Example Part A Question
Outline Christian beliefs about God.
Why do people believe in God?
Logical arguments - Cosmological (How did the world get here? God must have brought it here), Theological (Design. It is too intricate to have just 'happened'. It must have a designer - God)
Upbringing - if you have been taught to live in Christianity then more than likely you will carry on that way
Experiences (If you have experienced a 'miracle' then it is likely that you will believe that God created the miracle and therefore will bellieve in God)
Activity of God in the world
Jesus (everything He did when he was on Earth)
Miracles - modern miracles and Jesus' miracles
But who deserves miracles? Why aren't big problems like HIV in Africa solved yet?
Authority of the Bible
Symbol of faith - frames peoples' whole living
It comes from God and symbolises the TRUTH
