Does God Exist? The Ultimate Question
To the believer, not only does God exist but proof abounds and is evident all around us, from the farthest reaches of the universe to the tiniest genetic particle within us. To non-believers, “Does God exist?” is the question of the ages, relying on science or math for validity. Christians do not rely on any tangible or analytical proof. They believe through faith in God, who is the creator of all science and math.
Does God Exist in Theory Only?
It may take more effort in denying the existence of God exist than in accepting the simple truths that point to His existence. Christians believe our very existence is a miracle, from the mechanics and timing of a cell’s mitochondria interacting flawlessly with every other cell in our bodily systems; to the ability of adapting our lives in varied environments, societies and circumstances; to the vastness of space and its symmetry of heavenly bodies. All these working together in perfect order so that we may marvel at it all with wonder. “He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.” [Job 26:7]. “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.” [Psalm 19:1].
Science and God
There is consensus among scientists that life was made through intelligent design. In other words, by a creator, known to believers as God. Science and math continue to substantiate the existence of God. The more scholars try to dismiss God’s existence, the more He is proven to exist, confounding conventional thinking. Supporting evidence abounds, such as, a worldwide flood reported in many cultures and in geological findings, an astronomical footprint of the Star of Bethlehem, a reported asteroidal event of Sodom and Gomorrah, biblical archeological findings, discovery of the “God” gene, with a growing number of historical and scientific revelations being found in support of God’s existence.
The scriptures even tell of man’s folly in the face of God’s truth. “Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself; That frustrateth the tokens of the liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise men backward, and maketh their knowledge foolish;” [Isaiah 44:24,25]
To believers, God exists, not by means of any physical proof, but by biblical faith. Believers affirm the bible as God’s Word and all that is in it as His truth, including the principle of belief through faith. The bible teaches us, “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” [Hebrews 11:1]. Even Jesus taught us, “blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.” [John 20:29].
How then, does one acquire this faith? Simply believe, it is the inseparable tie that binds us to God. “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.” [Romans 10:17]. By believing one receives the rewards of faith, “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:” [Romans 5:1]. And this faith will always sustain believers, “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.” [1 John 5:4]
So, what do you conclude? Does God exist as the bible teaches us? You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by accepting God’s truth.
