    Does God exist?

    The Holy Trinity doesn't really make any modifications to the nature of God, neither do the beliefs of other Abrahamic religions. We understand the Holy Trinity as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, with the Father element being God. The only difference between Christianity and Islam/Judaism in that...

    My 5500 words due in 2 weeks can relate so much to this. Peace!

    Does God exist?

    Alawite Muslims can answer this question perhaps better than Sunni and Shia Muslims, despite their conflicting beliefs. Alawites believe they must undergo repeated reincarnation before going to heaven. Assuming this is true, all spirits in this world will be born again as different individuals...

    Plan and Timings for HSC/Trial Exams

    If you're sure you can find the answer to those multiple choice questions once most of the pressure is gone, that definitely sounds like a good option. It's usually harder to maximise marks in the essay sections than the multiple choice section as you mentioned.

    Do you actually go to SMSHS? Our cohort wasn't the best either haha, particularly for Business Studies. Passed it first go thankfully. I actually only got my P's at the start of last month, bit late for me as I'm 19 haha.

    Does God exist?

    Perhaps I should clarify my position: Pascal's wager is not and will never be the reason why I'm Christian. My initial point was that Pascal's wager, when compared to atheism, presents a more viable alternative. I don't personally believe that one's relationship with God should be built...

    To each their own.

    Does God exist?

    Assuming a religion is true, I believe that the general outcome of being irreligious/atheist would be even less favourable than that of someone who followed the wrong religion.

    This is great! I actually found this same verse you included today while doing some research, along with some other information. Thanks! :D

    How does transferring work

    The most important part is ensuring that your marks are high enough at Macquarie in case you are able to transfer from Macquarie to USyd or UNSW so that you can meet USyd/UNSW requirements. Have you tried contacting MQ and UNSW/USyd about this? I'm sure they can provide you with some very...

    What's the best way to self-mark extended response questions?

    You're pretty much doing everything you need to do. Having access to top band essays as mentioned above would also be useful as it helps in shaping your arguments more effectively and the overall structure of your response.

    Does God exist?

    A better option than atheism? I mean, if one chooses to be an atheist rather than embracing Pascal's wager and a religion like Chrisitanity or Islam turns out to be true, I don't think the outcome will be favourable for that person. On the other hand, there is no actual considerable loss if one...

    Plan and Timings for HSC/Trial Exams

    For Economics, one minute per multiple choice question would be enough time. With exams containing multiple choice questions, I used to skip whichever question(s) that did not immediately ring a bell, then come back to them after completing the other sections. You shouldn't be spending too much...

    Does God exist?

    That could be the case regardless of Pascal's wager. My initial point was aimed at the uncertainty of the existence of God and how Pascal's wager would be a better option than atheism (for me). Which religion is true (if any) is a completely different issue.

    Does God exist?

    The way I see it, as long as the core belief in God is there, Pascal's wager would be viable, regardless of one's religion. At the end of the day, it's the person's relationship with God that matters. This works pretty well with Abrahamic religions as they share this core belief (of course there...

    Does God exist?

    Honestly, knowing we will probably not get any non-biblical evidence of the existence of any religious figure anytime soon (God, Jesus, etc), I choose to embrace Pascal’s wager as a Christian.
