Since I am unable to quote as many scripture references as must of you, I decided try and open the discussion on this topic from a different perspective.
A lot of you belief the ontological argument for God is true. For those unaware of the argument, here is version of it:
Definition of God is a being than which none greater can be conceived.
(1) Suppose that God exists in the understanding alone.
(2) Given our definition, this means that a being than which none greater can be conceived exists in the understanding alone.
(3) But this being can be conceived to exist in reality. That is, we can conceive of a circumstance in which theism is true, even if we do not believe that it actually obtains.
(4) But it is greater for a thing to exist in reality than for it to exist in the understanding alone.
(5) Hence we seem forced to conclude that a being than which none greater can be conceived can be conceived to be greater than it is.
(6) But that is absurd.
(7) So (1) must be false. God must exist in reality as well as in the understanding.
If we now look at the discussion whether God is outside of time or not, we must conclude that either:
- The ontological argument is incorrect (this doesn't mean God doesn't exist, only that this argument is incorrect)
- God must be outside of time
That's at least my understanding on it. Care to share your thoughts?
