Come on, man! We live in an age of scientific enlightenment ? you can?t really mean that you still believe there?s a God. Get real, I mean I used to believe there was a God too, but that was when I was still in kindergarten ? in diapers. Now I?d need some proof?.

 

The fact of the matter is that reasons for believing that there?s a God are too numerous, I hardly know where to begin. The first reason I believe in God is that we are totally incapable of rationally explaining the world without a God. Take the universe, for example. Science has successfully demonstrated that the universe had a specific beginning and that it is now running down due to the lack of available energy. In fact, the universe in which we live is dying of heat loss. Now since our scientific understanding rules out an eternal universe, and since it is totally irrational to believe that the universe sprang from nothing, the only rational explanation is that a supernatural being created the world in which we live; and that this being is all-powerful, intelligent, moral, and, of course, self-existent.

 

 The next reason I believe there?s a God is that atheism is incapable of accounting for the vast array of phenomena which we experience every single day. An atheistic world view cannot adequately account for such things as, the universal laws of logic, laws of science, not to mention, standards of morality. In addition, if there is no God, then there is no ultimate meaning or purpose to life ? we are little more than animals.

 

But the real reason I believe there?s a God is that He has revealed Himself to me through the person and work of Jesus Christ. Jesus claimed to be God in human flesh (John 8:58). Now this is an astounding claim, but He supported the claim by His matchless personal character, His fulfillment of predictive prophecy, by His influence on human history, but most significantly, by His historical resurrection from the dead.

 

 Now, if you are looking for God ? you need look no further than Jesus Christ Himself. He was either a liar, a lunatic, a legend, or He was, in fact, Lord. Now I think if you?ll examine the evidence, you?ll agree with me that He was the Lord, the one who spoke and the universe leapt into existence.
