Monotheism (no family, ONE etc)

Omni words - Omniscient, Omnipotent, Omnipresent Benevolent etc

Apostles' Creed - "I believe in God, the Father Almighty..." (You will get extra marks for mentioning this. REMEMBER you don't have to quote it exactly, even a close reference will do!)

Jesus is 'God's incarnate' (God in human form)

God is seen as a judge and forgiving

Example Part A Question

Outline Christian beliefs about God.

1 of 4

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)

2 of 4

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?

 

 

3 of 4

It comes from God and symbolises the TRUTH
