This is one of three blog posts discussing the major proofs for the existence of God: the Ontological, Cosmological, and Teleological. This first post begins with the discussion of the Ontological argument and attempts to reconcile its reasoning with our own Christian faith.
Though it wasn’t the first argument to appear in Christian literature, the Ontological argument is by far the simplest and most comprehensible, and therefore, it is fitting that I begin my exploration of proofs for the existence of God here.
The following post is geared towards a Christian audience, assuming a knowledge of doctrine and scripture. In a few weeks, another article on the same topic will be published, from a different viewpoint and more geared towards non-Christian audiences.

This summer I participated in an English teaching program in China. Basically, a group of about 50 university students from all across the US and the UK were split into four teams that were assigned to teach at 3–4 English summer camps across the country. My team was assigned to Hebei, Beijing, Jiangxi, and then another camp in Beijing. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but as a fluent Mandarin speaker, I didn’t think there would be too much I couldn’t handle. I was so wrong. I had heard the colloquial saying “love is a choice, not a feeling” numerous times growing up and while I appreciated its intent, I thought I did a decent enough job of living by it.
