Natural Theology vs. General Revelation Romans 1:20 Natural Theology Argues for the existence of a Creator from the observable existence of the creation. (Cosmological or Teleological [Intelligent Design] Arguments) General Revelation God has made himself known through the creation. Therefore, knowledge of God’s existence is not something we obtain or fail to strive for but something that we already possess. According to Paul, this innate knowledge that we possess we choose to reject and “suppress” it. (Rom 1:18)

What is the essence of sin for Paul? Idolatry (Rom 1:21-23) Humans worship and serve the creation over the Creator. They give glory to another and God is not unconcerned about His glory among His creation (Isa 48:11). He is a Jealous God. Creator Creation Worship, honor, acknowledge Idolatry Creation is a relative good not an absolute good.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
