In reply to an argument for the existance of god, posted by alexandra_k on October 14, 2004, at 0:10:17

I have the conception of god as all powerful, all good, all knowing, all loving. And also as a supremely perfect being, who became that way in much the same way as we become perfect; that is step by step, grace by grace.

If god did not exist (or if he only existed as a concept and not in reality) then I could imagine something even more perfect: namedly, an all powerful, all good, all knowing being who also existed in reality. But even if I let my imagination run rampant and conceive the most glorious being that is possible for my mind to conceive, it would still not come near to his actual reality, because man's mind cannot comprehend anything as wonderful as God is. Nor can he comprehend the greatness and glory and majesty of things he has prepared for those who love him.

Because I have the concept of god as a supremely perfect being
and it is more perfect to exist than to not exist god exists in reality. If He didn't exist in reality there would be no world, no heaven, no love, no people, nothing but a black hole.

Some of us know the black hole. The tiny speck of light at the end of the tunnel is God beconning us to try a little harder to lift ourselves toward Him. As we do so, we grow step by step, grace by grace toward his perfect love, until we are completely embelished in it.

(that was fun)
