Does God Really Exist Video

Evidences of God’s existence can be boiled down to 3 great evidences.

Although God has chosen that our relationship should be based on faith rather than empirical data (sight, touch, taste, smell, hearing), He has not left us without evidence. As we may sit in a house and observe trees swaying, leaves and loose paper billowing around, and perhaps the sound of wind; we can reasonably put these observations together and conclude that the evidences prove that the wind was blowing. So also God has left us many evidences that lead reasonably to the conclusion that God exists.

Nothing comes from nothing. Everything in this physical world has a beginning. God alone, because He is spirit, can be eternal and have no beginning. He alone then can be Creator of the physical world.

A design demands a Designer. All of the universe displays design, order, and regularity. The delicate balance of our earth, the interdependence of plants animals, and microorganisms into a unified ecology is a marvel. The intricate biochemical matrix that composes each creature calls for a great Designer. It is no more reasonable for such order and complexity to arise on its own than to think that a fully functioning wrist watch could arise from the natural forest floor, or a granite boulder, or ocean bottom. When we see intricate design, we naturally assume a designer.

The moral evidence. Moral standards are present throughout all time and every culture. None would deny the existence of morality, and yet can there be morality without God? Without God, people are nothing more than highly developed rocks, and there is nothing moral or immoral about rocks falling on each ohter and breaking the other to pieces. There is no murder among rocks, no theft, no rape, no violence, no lies, because they are amoral (without morality). Without God there is no real value, no meaning, no right or wrong, fair or unfair, good or bad. Without God morality is just a set of abstractions with no value because they don’t really exist. But we know morality exists, so we may reasonably conclude that God exists.
