Welcome back to Wesley at MSU! It’s always great to have you here!
What You May Have Missed…
Last week we began to continue to examine the Cosmological Argument for religious belief:
- Everything that begins to exist has a cause.
- The universe began to exist.
- The universe has a cause.
We also began to unpack some of the response and criticisms of this argument, and responded to those responses.
The MSU Wesley Foundation has restructured our Patreon page and we would be grateful if you would check it out! If you would like to donate, please visit our Patreon!
This week we are still examining the Cosmological Argument, and evaluating more criticisms against it. We always strive to be thorough in our discussions as a group, and when a subject requires more time, we tend to give it as much time as it needs.

Director’s Spotlight – Anselm of Canterbury
Anselm was a benedictine monk who eventually became the Arch Bishop of Canterbury in the 11th Century. While his life and relationship with England were tumultuous, he produced a number of works still studied today by those in the field of Philosophy of Religion. He was most famous developing the Ontological Argument for God’s existence, and fundamentally believed that a person could come to a knowledge and understanding of God through reason alone. While many criticize his works today, his influence cannot be understated.
