Explore God Series – Big Question #2
Some people reject God. They want scientific proof.
There is evidence of God’s existence.
God injects the need and then provides evidence.
God provides the way. Then He demands faith.

And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him. Heb 11:6
God could appear to all and even force belief. But He loves us and wants us to love Him.
Then Jesus told him, “You believe because you have seen me. Blessed are those who believe without seeing me.” John 20:29
1) Biblical evidence of God in nature and in man.
The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship. 2 Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known. 3 They speak without a sound or word; their voice is never heard. 4 Yet their message has gone throughout the earth, and their words to all the world.
For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God. Rom 1:20
Even Gentiles, who do not have God’s written law, show that they know his law when they instinctively obey it, even without having heard it. 15 They demonstrate that God’s law is written in their hearts, for their own conscience and thoughts either accuse them or tell them they are doing right. Rom 2:14-15
2) Teleological argument – since the universe displays such an amazing design, there
must have been a divine Designer.
3) Cosmological argument – Every effect must have
a cause. Ultimately, there must be something “un-caused” in order to cause everything else to come into existence. That “un-caused” cause is God.
Choose To Trust in God or god
1) Atheist denies God’s existence.
2) Agnostic is not sure to trust God or not.
3) Theist believes in God. (A supreme being)
They traded the truth about God for a lie. So they worshiped and served the things God created instead of the Creator himself, who is worthy of eternal praise! Rom 1:25
Once we establish there is a God, then we discover who God really is and how to connect with Him.
Christian’s Believe: “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
