Anyway, I would like to hear your argument for God's existence. Thank you.
We are Bible Christians, which means we follow the Bible's record of Jesus Christ and His teachings. Our religion is simple ~it is nothing more and nothing less than following Jesus Christ according to the Bible. We believe God wrote the Bible to reveal Himself, (apart from the scriptures we WOULD NOT know God) His Son Jesus Christ, the truth about the universe and His religion, and everything we need to know to live successful lives in this world
and the world to come.
We do not base our Christianity on tradition, history, creeds, commentaries, popular opinion, a national religion, denominational dictates, personal preferences, almanac distinctions, our culture, science so called, or anything else. We cannot call ourselves Christians without establishing the authority of the Bible, for it is in the Bible we learn about the man Jesus Christ and the form of religion that we observe in a New Testament church. Apart from the Bible we have no true knowledge
of Jesus Christ or understanding of the proper worship of God, for we are truly bound by this written revelation from God for all we know
and do in a religious way.
We can and should put our faith to the test, for the vast majority of the human race have spent their lives believing numerous lies on many subjects. Putting our religion to the test is not only wise, but the Bible commands it (Ist Thessalonians 5:21; Acts 17:11; Isaiah 41:21; Ist John 4:1; Revelation 2:2; Matthew 7:15-20
God's existence is obvious by the natural creation and our ability to recognize it, and to deny this is to place one's self outside the realm of reasonable discussion (Psalm 14:1-4; 19:1-3; Proverbs 9:10; Eccl 12:13; Romans 1:19-21; Acts 17:24; 2nd Thess 3:2
). No one in the Bible ever worried about those who rejected the existence of God, and neither will we.
Such fools will meet Him soon enough, and they will be without excuse, for the natural creation is more than sufficient. While this presumption is not why we believe in God, we will nevertheless prove it absolutely true, if we are able to prove that the Bible is His Word to man.
It is not enough to know the existence of God, either by the natural creation or by internal witness, for we can only acquire the knowledge of Jesus Christ and His teachings from the Bible; they are not revealed in the natural creation, but by reading and teaching the Bible (John 5:39; Ist Timothy 6:3-5; Romans 16:17-18,25-27
It is only reasonable God would communicate with His creatures, so we also presume this matter to initiate our examination of the Bible. When we wish to communicate as strongly as possible, we do so in writing i.e. contracts, documents, letters, etc. The Bible admits this fact (2nd Peter 1:16-19; Esther 1:19; 3:9; 8:5,8
). If we prove that God wrote the Bible, then we will have also proven this assumption. If we cannot prove God wrote the Bible or any other book, we must then determine if God did communicate to man at all.
But our two safe presumptions still leave us in this situation ~one of the holy books in the earth is God's Word or none of them are~ for they are all contradictory and violently opposed to one another. Is it reasonable and right to trust the Bible, when there are so many other religious books in the world, like the Koran, the Vita, Veda, the Talmud, Science and Health, and the Book of Mormon among many others?
It is impossible to separate divine evidence from the need for faith, and we have no reason to do so. If a person will not believe proof that God is the Author, he is unreasonable and without faith. The man not born again cannot see the kingdom of God, for the natural man cannot receive the spiritual things of God: they are foolish to him, for he cannot discern them. Natural arguments to prove spiritual truth to natural men is the most futile objective in the universe
, for God must first give life and light (Luke 16:31; John 3:3; Ist Cor 2:14; Matt 7:6; Prov 14:7; 2nd Thess 3:2;2nd Tim 2:24-26; 2nd Cor 4:1-7; Ist Cor 1:18-24; Ist John 5:20
Where did Jesus, Philip, and Paul preach? Why did none of them try to prove the existence of God? Why did they assume it without question? They did not have to prove such, for THAT MUST be accepted or all effort to convert people is wasted effort. The Bible assumes throughout that a person worshipping a stump is as dumb and ignorant as the stump (Psalm 115:8; 135:18; Isaiah 44:9-20; Habakkuk 2:18-20
). Proving God's existence through creation or the word of God does nothing to a believer, but only adds MORE confirmation that his faith is not in vain~but FAITH must first be there, or all effort is lost on whoever we are talking to.
