Do Theistic Proofs Prove the Wrong God?

Douglas Groothuis

Blaise Pascal and other thinkers have often claimed that "the god of the philosophers" is too abstract to refer to the God of living faith. The entity argued for through natural theology is so far removed from the God of revelation that the former cannot serve as a metaphysical preface for consideration of the latter. Douglas Groothuis argues against these claims: if natural theology can philosophically establish several attributes of God, this would be a religiously worthy achievement, even though revelation is still required to fill out the fuller picture of God's character. Mr. Groothuis is associate professor of philosophy at Denver Conservative Baptist Seminary.
