- The tremendous complexity, order and
synchronization of nature testify of its Designer.
Study the circuitry of a computer or a bolt and nut whose threads matched
perfectly. Do you believe that these objects were formed by chance? Why not?
Who designed the living cell, a beeís eye or the human brain with far
greater complexity and synchronization? God did.
Nature not only testifies of functional design, but it speaks of a Creator
with an aesthetic appreciation for beauty. View a beautiful painting. Do you
believe that this work of art work fell together by chance? Why not? Who
created nature with its colours and aesthetic beauty? God did.
The innate sense of right and wrong in all people testifies of
their righteous Creator.
Watch a toddler touch a forbidden object or a young child tell a lie. Do you
believe that this boy or girl does not know that this action is wrong? Why
not? Who formed this child with an innate sense of right and wrong? God did.
Perfection - The longing of all
people for perfection and eternal meaning speaks of a need to know and love
their perfect and eternal Creator.
Observe peopleís desires. Are they ever fully satisfied? Do they ever attain
perfection and eternal meaning by their efforts or human relationships? Why
not? Who implanted this deep-seated need for a perfect and eternal
relationship? God did.
The religious beliefs and practices of people from every continent on earth
proclaim the universal consciousness of God and a deep need to live in
communion with our Creator.
Study primitive to advanced cultures from every tribe, nation or language on
earth. Do you find any group of people with no religious beliefs and
practices? Why not? Who placed these innate spiritual needs and desires in
all people? God did.
Personal Assurance -
Experiencing a loving relationship with God convinces a person of Godís
Witness a person who loves another. Does he or she doubt the reality of
love, or the love of the other? Why not? Who personally communicated the
reality of His love? God did.
Word of Truth - The Bibleís ability
to inerrantly speak to the spiritual needs of all people throughout history
regardless of age, culture, or education and its communication of the
perfect answer for manís sin by the gracious gift and death of Godís Son
Jesus Christ testifies that it is the Word of God. Study the Bible. Do you
find any error in its spiritual, practical, historical, scientific or
prophetical truths, or any lack in its ability to speak truth to all
cultures, ages and types of people? Why not? Who proclaimed such infallible
and heart-renewing truths? God did.
To not believe in God requires faith that goes against
reason. It requires illogical faith. When, however, we observe the design of
beauty of nature; the universal sense of morality, desire for perfection and
consciousness of God; and the witness of personal testimony and power of the
Bible, then we know that believing in God is supported by reason. Faith in
God is logical faith.
Yes, I believe in God. Do you?
