Those that liken the Christian God to that of the “Flying Spaghetti Monster” or any other nonsensical, mythical figure do one thing well when doing so – reveal their ignorance. Many of them are highly intelligent people, but they are quite literally ignorant (in the true sense of the word) of the God Christians truly claim to worship. The Christian God is one that we can come to know by the natural light of reason.
Here’s another exclusive clip from episode three of the soon to be released Catholicism project, by Fr. Barron. He beautifully demonstrates one of the classical proofs for God’s existence: The Argument from Contingency.
The Christian God is not just a mythical character in a feel-good fable. He’s not some irrational explanation for what we can not explain. And He’s not been created out of our own wishful fancies or to fulfill some psychological need. He is the very being who is being itself. The being which depends on nothing else for its own existence. The first cause. The logically necessary being whose very nature it is to be. This is what we Christians mean, among other things, by God.
