Beauty and the Existence of God

I came across a post of interest on “The Scriptorium Daily” this morning. One of the subjects that I enjoy studying is beauty, and its relationship to theology (Click Here).

The post was written by John Mark Reynolds, who is the founder and director of the Torrey Honors Institute, and Associate Professor of Philosophy, at Biola University. In 1996 he received his Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Rochester.

The post deals with “Beauty and the Existence of God.” Here is an excerpt;

“The existence of beauty suggests that a God exists and that He is good. It is not a sufficient proof for the existence of God by itself, but a confirmation of His existence to those with other reasons and personal experiences that suggest His reality.”

    Thank you for sharing this! It was a beautiful post. I lament for people who do not have a relationship with God and can rejoice in the beauty of the world. Since there is only one God, however people try to build that relationship connects us all.
