ONE GOD, THE CREATOR
1. St. Thomas here states the argument from causality or the First Cause
for the existence of God. Can you restate it in your own words?
2. Note that the errors of which St. Thomas speaks are similar to certain
views held to-day. Thus, the Manicheans and modern "reformers" who consider
legitimate pleasures to be evil. Can you think of any errors to-day which
correspond somewhat to the other errors mentioned in the text?
3. How does consideration of God as our Creator lead us to greater
knowledge of God?
4. Gratitude, patience, and the right use of created things are taught us
by our belief in the Creator. How?
5. Where does man belong in relation to the rest of God's creation?
6. Make personal the proof of the existence of God, the Creator: that He
created me and is interested in me.
