Why do you believe in God?

"Without Christ, I personally would be an atheist. I believe in God only for Christ's sake, not in a general higher being or whatsoever."
(Jurgen Moltmann, Lecture at Trinity Institute's 37th National Theological Conference, 23 Jan 2007)

very christ-centric theology. nowdays, ppl like John Hicks, try hard to eliminate christ, and solely talk about God, in materialising his version of ecumenism..

Hi davinci,

Oh yes, I deem Moltmann as a critical theological thinker. Hick has a lot of things to sort out himself. His "conversion" from conventional belief to his current belief took 1-2 decades, if I remember correctly.
