Does the Bible offer proof for the existence of God? What are the arguments for the existence of God? Tune in with us as we take a close look at this topic and more!
Is There Any Proof of God?
In the Beginning God
The Bible Takes for granted he is He doesn’t take time to explain himself
But to the Student of the Word he does give us some understanding
Isaiah 40:28 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.
The creator was–
Before the creation came into being, the creator always was always will be
Psalms 19:1-4 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,
Romans 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Hard to believe
For the Skeptics and Atheist The Scriptures offer no proof to their satisfaction that God exists
1 Corinthians 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
In the study of Theology there are many proofs or arguments for the existence of God
1 Argument from Conscience
The fact that man is born with a universal belief in a supreme being, there is not a tribe yet discovered that lacks this
2 Argument from Cause Cosmological
The World is here. It must have com from somewhere. Someone or Something must have caused it to happen.
3 Argument from Life
Life comes from life John 11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life:
Psalms 36:9 For with thee is the fountain of life.
There are others but these give you a good sampling that there are other proofs which confront the Atheist of the existence of God
Now I believe the Bible I don’t need these other proofs to believe in God
Confess- My brain has a hard time grasping an ever living God / Who has always been to believe in God is an act of faith
Just because I can’t understand doesn’t mean it isn’t so
**Where did He come from? Where is he now? Can We see him
–I was not there to see Him create, So it takes faith
(I have never seen Abe Lincoln either) Did he really exist?
–>Historians have written of his deeds and exploits There is a record Eye witness accounts dealing with him. I believe by faith
Now I started out by Reading to you from Heb 1 Let’s go back there
Hebrews 1:2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
Hebrews 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
Hebrews 1:10 And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands:
John 1:18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
There is a record of God’s exploits and it is the Bible
–> Eyewitness accounts Power over Nature Creation
But for the educated man that is enlightened they go to evolution
I submit to you that those that believe in evolution, believe by faith and have to have more faith than me. And they are more religious than me
You have heard of the Big Bang This is how it came to be
Space time expansion itself leads to directly proportional relation between recessional velocity and galactic distance.
Now if we reverse the expansion scenario back in time, we see that if galaxies are moving rapidly apart now, then they must have been clumped together in the past! That is, the universe must have been denser (with more matter and energy packed in a unit volume) in the past.
If you keep going back in time, the whole universe will converge to a point of infinite density and super-high temperatures. This is the starting point of big bang. The universe started expanding out of an infinitely dense initial point. The essential idea to understand here is that big bang did not happen somewhere in the universe. The universe itself was an infinitely dense point, a singularity, which expanded to its present size!
Let us understand how was the universe created, according to the big bang theory. Universe began from a singularity. At a singularity, infinite density created infinite curvature, due to which the classical laws of general relativity, rather all known laws of physics break down. Therefore, what happened before the big bang is something which nobody can answer.
The age of the universe according to Big Bang theory is estimated to be 13.73 (± 0.12) billion years.
To simplify what I just read
Well, they (scientists) are saying now that all of the known matter……stars, planets, space etc., at one point in time billions of years ago were compressed into a dot. and for some reason exploded and has been expanding ever since,
They would have us believe that: all the systems formed perfectly and right distances apart, so that we can time every thing by it.
There is no randomness or chaos But order out of an explosion?
Where did the matter come from? And was anyone there to witness it? (Eyewitness accounts?)
Pure science is observable or demonstratable facts
They have more faith than I have
I have faith in a designer. Everything has a purpose and function Not chance
God sets things in order
Picture Shows that there was an Artist
Cell Phone In pieces Shake together will never become assembled and operational
Atheism leads to doubt, immorality, depravity, and despair.
Romans 1:20-25 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
Every man is born with a knowledge of God They are taught out of it
Or don’t want to bow to the creator and will not accept God’s authority over him
Belief in God gives answers, hope, reassurance
Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
