Discussion 1 to Meditation 13
Proofs of God's Existence

David Harris

To add to this discussion (or any other,) please use the Contact form. This discussion has been continued.

Just so that you don't feel that there are no proofs, despite the fact that you continue to ignore the proofs I have sent previously, there are others:

  1. the universal belief in a Supreme Being that is found in every civilization and every culture worldwide. This is because the Bible says that God has placed the knowledge of His existence "in them". (Romans 1:19)

  2. the logical belief that every effect must have an adequate cause. The creation of all things had to have a first cause. As a watch demands a watchmaker, even so, Creation demands a Creator.

  3. man's knowledge of God's perfect existence implies the reality of His existence. If mankind had imagined God, we would not have imagined the perfect and holy God of the Bible. We would have made one far less demanding, restrictive and hard to understand. Immoral finite men would have created immoral finite gods (much like you have in your estimation of what your god is like), such as the fickle and fleshly Greek and Roman gods. The God of the Bible has not only revealed Himself to mankind, He became flesh so you could see Him. He came. He died. He rose again so that you could know Him.

  4. the existence of man's conscience and moral nature. This implies a moral God who planted a moral nature within us. If things just happened by chance, there would be no morals. The universal presence of guilt evidences the universal moral conscience placed in us by a moral Being.

  5. the existence of man's consciousness or mind. Atoms do not know they exist. They are not self aware. Man is aware that he exists. This awareness came about from Intelligent Design.

  6. the existence of morals. If the universe and man were merely random chance arrangements, then no morality would exist. It would not be any more morally wrong to kill you than it would be to smash a mosquito. The existence of absolute morals implies One who made those rules. If there is no God, there is no logical basis for absolute morals. For many, the desire for freedom from absolute morals is the very reason they have denied the existence of God.

  7. the existence of design in our universe. Design implies a Designer. The Intelligent design, purpose and order of the universe indicates an intelligent Designer. The size of the earth, distance from the sun, tilt of the earth, our moon, lightning, ozone, water, atmospheric dust, cells in our body, existence of DNA, etc., all indicate an Intelligent Designer and not random chance.
