Does GOD Exist?

5 Reasons for believing in the existence of GOD.

  1. GOD can be personally known and experienced, through Jesus Christ.
  2. GOD is the best explanation of the origin of the universe.
  3. GOD is the best explanation of the fine-tuning of the universe for intelligent life.
  4. GOD is the best explanation for the existence of objective moral values and duties.
  5. GOD is the best explanation for the historical facts concerning the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
  1. GOD Can Be Personally Known and Experienced.
    The Christian GOD Jesus Christ can be personally experienced, God is not a statue of stone or wood, God is alive, He loves us and sent His only son Jesus Christ to suffer on the cross for our sins an unimaginable excruciating pain, torture and death so we could be saved, so that whoever repents of their sin and believes in Jesus Christ and puts their trust and faith in Him will receive the Holy Spirit and be forgiven of their sin being born-again of Spirit and have everlasting life and Joy in the Kingdom of Heaven.

    Receiving the Holy Spirit you will experience God and can get to know God through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, you can walk and talk with Jesus Christ God.

Therefore GOD exists.

2. GOD is the best explanation of the origin of the universe.
Modern science believes the universe in not eternal in the past but had a beginning a finite time ago. Science also believes the Big Bang. But to believe everything came from nothing, makes no sense because a quantum vacuum is not nothing because it’s governed by physical laws. Everything can not start from nothing, so something or someone setoff the Big Bang.

A Transcendent cause of the physical universe must be:

  • Uncaused
  • Nonphysical
  • Immaterial
  • Timeless
  • Changeless
  • Powerful
  • Personal

Therefore GOD exists.

3. GOD is the best explanation of the fine-tuning of the universe for intelligent life.
Scientists believe that intelligent fine tuning of life was designed into the big bang from the start of the universe.

Possible reasons for fine-tuning the universe.
– Physical necessity due to laws of nature.
– Pure chance alone.
– Product of Intelligent Design.

Impossible to be by physical or chance, so has to be from design.

Therefore GOD exists.

4. GOD is the best explanation for the existence of objective moral values and duties.
If God does not exist it’s very difficult to find any objective standard of right or wrong, good and evil. Atheist’s believe morals are nothing but biological adaptation for survival and reproduction and not a duty. But it’s not true, we do have moral duties.

If GOD does not exist, then objective moral values and duties do not exist. But objective moral values and duties do exist.

Therefore GOD exists.

5. GOD is the best explanation for the historical facts concerning the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

If Jesus really did rise from the dead:

  • That means He must have been who He claimed to be.
  • It means God has publicly vindicated His claims.

Facts from Historians of the New Testament for Resurrection.

  • After Jesus’s death on the Cross, he was buried in a tomb by a member of the Jewish high court named Joseph of Arimathea
  • The tomb was found empty by women followers of Jesus. Sunday morning following the Crucifixion
  • There after different individuals and groups in different locations seeing Jesus alive, eating, drinking, talking, touching.
  • Disciples believed God had raised Him from the dead.

Historian’s cannot explain the rise of early Christianity unless Jesus rose again leaving an empty tomb.

  • His honorable burial
  • His empty tomb
  • His post-mortem appearances
  • The origin of the disciples belief in Jesus’ resurrection.

Best explanation is GOD raised Jesus from the dead.

Therefore GOD exists
