JESUS CHRISTGods Revelation to the World
  • Chapter One
  • Searching for God

2
True Happiness
  • Only God can make us truly happy since God
    created us and made us with longing souls that
    only he can satisfy.

3
  • Money and power cannot buy true happiness
    neither can possessions, popularity, physical
    beauty, athletic skill or intellectual
    achievement.

4
God The Source of True Happiness
  • We were made to be happy. Yet we will only
    achieve true happiness if we understand, accept
    and live Gods plan for us.

5
  • God created us to share in his own blessed life,
    God wants to share his love.

6
The Restless Human Heart
  • We all have deep yearnings for completeness, for
    satisfaction, for happiness that is implanted in
    us by God himself and is only satisfied by God.

7
  • God Wants you to be happy, but you wont be
    perfectly happy until you rest in him.
  • St. Augustine Our hearts are restless until it
    rests in you.

8
Questioning Minds
  • We not only have restless hearts we have active
    questioning minds.
  • Just like your hearts yearns for love and
    happiness, you are searching for the truth about
    human existence

9
  • you want to know what is the meaning of life.
  • God made you, and all humans, in his image and
    likeness.

10
  • Being made in Gods image endows us with the
    ability to choose and to think.

11
We Are Religious by Nature
  • Through out history, humans have discovered that
    they are not whole or complete persons unless
    they are connected, bound to or related to God.

12
  • Religion reconnecting to the divine or
    binding to God
  • Monotheistic the belief in one God

13
  • Polytheistic the belief in many gods
  • Irreligion the lack of religion, indifference to
    religion, or hostility to religion.

14
  • Secularism the principle that promotes worldly
    values or ideals over religious ones.
  • Atheist someone who does not believe in God.
    (denies the existence of God)

15
  • Agnosticism The belief that Gods existence
    cannot be known,
  • (from the Greek word meaning dont know) in
    essence to decide not to decide

16
  • Divine Revelation Gods free gift of
    self-communication, which helps us understand
    Gods plan for us.

17
Knowing God Through Natural Revelation
  • Contemplating Creation
  • God our creator and LORD can be known with
    certainty from his works, by the natural light of
    human reason. (CCC, 47)

18
  • Saint Thomas Aquinas set out five proofs for
    Gods existence.

19
  • 1.Unmoved Movers There must have been a First
    Mover who started everything, that unmoved
    mover is God.

20
  • 2. First Cause Nothing causes itself, there has
    to be a first cause or uncaused cause that is
    eternal and started everything.

21
  • 3. Everything Comes From Something For anything
    to exist, there must be a necessary, eternal
    being (God) who always existed and brought other
    beings into existence.

22
  • 4. Supreme Model This supreme model of goodness,
    truth, and beauty is the perfect being we call
    God.

23
  • 5. Grand Designer The world contains beauty,
    symmetry, order, and power that must have been
    put in by a grand designer. That someone is God.

24
Contemplating the Human Person
  • The human hear longs for happiness, love and
    understanding, our lives have meaning beauty and
    truth.
  • God gives us a taste of heaven here on earth.

    us a glimpse of what is in store for us when we
    are united with him in eternity.

    person decide the goodness or sinfulness of a
    action or attitude.

    recognizes the moral quality of a concrete act.

    intelligence which enables us to think, can only
    come from love and intelligence itself, God.
