Some argue that Moralistic Therapeutic Deism (MTD) is not Christianity. List the key points
of MTD. Argue for or against the claim that MTD is not Christianity.
The key points of Moralistic Therapeutic Deism (MTD) are, first, the belief that a God
who created an ordered world exists and that he minds the human life on earth. God wants all
people to show goodness, as reflected in the bible and other various religions. Life’s central goal
is described as being happy and feeling good and positive about the person one is. Also, God
does not require to be involved in one’s normal life, with the exception of situations where God
is needed to solve a challenge. Finally, there is a belief in life after death, where good people go
to heaven after death. MTD is not Christianity based on one vital concept that is the
understanding that God is inherently dispensable only to be called upon at times of need a
concept that conflicts with fundamental Christian views.
Name and describe one proof for God’s existence that we discussed in class. Evaluate the
argument, identifying its strengths and weaknesses.
The argument addressed here is that of intelligent design. The cosmos has been designed
in a way that is inherently perfect a process that can only be logically and practically attributed
to an intelligent plan and action an intelligent being. The argument has its strengths in that it
identifies critical elements that are empirically sound. For example, the definiteness of numerous
aspects of the world defies the arguments of spontaneous creation. On the other hand, the fact
that the causal relationship to an unknown being is not empirically possible to establish creates a
position of uncertainty and weakness in the theory.
