Reason for Existence


The following is from the table of contents. The cover design depicts what happened to me through faith in Jesus Christ nearly 23 years ago.
Chapter 1: The Existence Paradox. There are only two possible explanations for existence. Either there was nothing at all ever existing, from which something began to exist, or something always existed and necessarily, self-existed. It cannot be otherwise. The probability of each possibility determines which explanation is logically the truth . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 1
Chapter 2: What has always Existed and Self-Existed? Was it matter, mind, or something else altogether? The most popular scientific theories for the origin of life, the origin of the universe and a brief analysis. Conclusion: an Eternal Self-Existent Being, referred to as “God” has always existed and Self-Existed . . . . . 15
Chapter 3: What is God? A few brief Biblical glances, i.e., does God travel, can He be quantified, where is He, what did He use to create the universe, etc.? . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 51
Chapter 4: Faith is Reasonable because Existence is a paradox. Existence did not come about naturally. Existence breaks all of the physical rules inherent within our universe; therefore, belief in God and miracles is logical. Personal testimony of miracles. . . . . . . . . 67
Chapter 5: If God is Real, why then does Evil Exist? There are two primary evils and two primary types of suffering. Why? This chapter focuses more on the evil and suffering within human control . . . 77
Chapter 6: Chance or Choice? Does good and evil exist? Does truth exist? If so, who defines it, and how it is determined? Is there more to human nature than atoms and molecules? If so, can it be demonstrated? What do choices consist of? Are choices more than the results of physicochemical processes? Is mankind justly accountable for their actions? . . . . . 89
Chapter 7: What God could not Create but did. Is it possible for God to ever be illogical? God cannot lie, He cannot be inconsistent with Himself. There are certain things God could not do, but why? Does God have freewill? Why does natural evil and involuntary suffering exist, i.e., babies dying of cancer, natural disasters, etc.? The original creation was a means to the new creation. Intro to The Atonement . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 115
Chapter 8: The Revolutionary Perspective of Love. The Atonement must be both legal and effective. Specific effects of The Atonement. Why did Jesus have to suffer and die? What happened after He died? Why did Jesus do everything He did for us? What was Jesus thinking about while He suffered? . . . . . . . . . . . . . 143
Chapter 9: Revolution of Love. The ultimate effects of The Atonement. The revolutionary perspective of the love of Christ began a revolution of love within the hearts of His disciples. Getting God’s law into our hearts. Jesus is the only standard for true Christian love. How to get the power to love as Jesus loved. What it means to be made perfect in love. Apart from Jesus we cannot love as He loved. Love does not think evil of others. It takes faith to love like Jesus. The evidence of true love. Resentment kills love. Jesus calls His followers to perfect love. The secret to consistently loving as Jesus loves. Attachment is not evidence of love . . . . . . . . . 179
Chapter 10: Love and the Fulness of Times. Why did God wait so long to send Jesus, provide atonement, and to begin His mighty revolution of love? Explains Biblical predestination. If God is love, why is everything about Him? Why was God not satisfied to eternally exist without creating a world where evil and suffering was possible? . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 269
Chapter 11: Who is Jesus? He was mentioned in both ancient secular and Christian literature. He preexisted before His birth into our world. He is the LORD. He is the Logos of God. Is the Trinity Biblical? A clear and ancient explanation of the Trinity. His Divine attributes as the Logos. A few of His Biblical Titles with some brief explanations . . . . . . . . . . . . . 295
Chapter 12: The Supremacy of Jesus’s Words. Are His words for today or postponed for another time? God is the most important Person; therefore, His words are supremely important. What are we doing with His words? Intro to the teachings of Jesus . . . . . . . . 367

“Reason dictates that persons who are truly noble and who love wisdom will honor and love only what is true. They will refuse to follow traditional viewpoints if those viewpoints are worthless...Instead, a person who genuinely loves truth must choose to do and speak what is true, even if he is threatened with death...I have not come to flatter you by this written petition, nor to impress you by my words. I have come to simply beg that you do not pass judgment until you have made an accurate and thorough investigation. Your investigation must be free of prejudice, hearsay, and any desire to please the superstitious crowds. As for us, we are convinced that you can inflict no lasting evil on us. We can only do it to ourselves by proving to be wicked people. You can kill us—but you cannot harm us.” From Justin Martyr's first apology 150 A.D. Martyred A.D. 160
