Theology (Part 3)

Let’s continue to examine theology, the study of God, by looking at arguments for God’s existence.

You might wonder, how do we know that God exists? That’s a good question. And here are two good answers: order and morality.

God reveals Himself by creation—that He is. This is called a natural knowledge of God, and everyone has it. Look around at the world. See the design, order, and intricacy. Is this all an accident, a random occurrence by chance? No, because every design has a designer. Examine a laptop—it is designed. The same applies to the world. Who designed all of this? God did.

That’s what the Apostle Paul meant in Romans 1:20. It says, “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.”

Notice that people are without excuse.  The agnostic, who says we can’t know if God exists, has to admit that this intricately designed existence, whether on the cellular or stellar level, displays the power of God.  Spider webs, the human eyeball, and acorns all showcase a beautiful design.   No mere chance explosion or random occurrence can explain this reality.

Next we’ll address the morality argument for God’s existence.
