Top-Ten Proofs of God’s Existence

The last evidence for the existence of God is Jesus himself. He claimed to be God. Is this a credible claim? The answer is yes.

First, let’s establish that he really claimed to be God. Some people say that Jesus did not claim to be God. Instead, they say that the idea that Jesus was God was made up 300 years after he died. However, that is not what the historical record shows.

The earliest account of Jesus’ life is the Gospel of [...]

Top-Ten Proofs of God’s Existence

God is mentioned over and over in the Bible. Are these historical accounts reliable?  For example, here are several accounts of people encountering God in the Bible:

Genesis 3: 8-9

8 Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the LORD God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the LORD God among the trees of the garden. 9 But the LORD God called to the man, “Where are you?”

Lesson 8 of 10 Beauty And Goodness Exist Where Did They Come From

Top-Ten Proofs of God’s Existence

(Retrieved from http://www.outdoor-photos.com/)

Where do goodness and beauty come from? Are they merely conditioned responses from eons of survival or do they reveal something more?

Ralph O. Muncaster asks, “Exactly what is pleasure? Why is there pleasure? How do we measure it?”1 Evolutionists say pleasure is a conditioned response from acts necessary for survival. For example, sex is pleasurable because it encourages reproduction. Muncaster questions why those impulses couldn’t have arisen as instincts, like eating and drinking, to stay alive. Where [...]

Miracle_Light

Top-Ten Proofs of God’s Existence

Do miracles really happen or are they just myths easily explained away today? The answers may surprise you. If miracles really happen, then there must really be a God. As Dr. Craig S. Keener has written a heavily researched and cited two volume book, Miracles: The Credibility of the New Testament Accounts 1. He states“…today hundreds of millions of people claim to have witnessed miracles”2.

Most of these people are  located in Third World countries. We in the West consider those accounts to [...]

Lesson 6 of 10: Moral Laws Exist: Who Created Them

Top-Ten Proofs of God’s Existence

Why are rape, cruelty, and child abuse wrong? In the animal kingdom there are no such moral laws. A new alpha male in the cat family will kill infant offspring of the previous alpha male. Why is that unacceptable behavior for humans? As Dr. William Lane Craig states, moral values can’t be merely the byproduct of biological evolution and social conditioning. Why? Certain moral values are binding and true. Deep down we know that rape, cruelty, and child abuse are moral abominations and [...]

Vibrio cholerae

Top-Ten Proofs of God’s Existence

Cells are protein-based biological machines that are a million million times smaller than the smallest piece of functional machinery everything ever constructed by man. Who designed the cell?

According to Ralph O. Muncaster1, the human body consists of approximately 75 trillion cells. Each cell, typically about one-thousandth of the size of a period in a sentence, performs like a modern factory. A single cell

generates power manufactures products designates how products relate guides the products’ distribution provides packaging manages information transfer assures quality [...]

Lesson 4 of 10 The Human Body Is Complex: Who Designed It

Human_Body_Complex_Design_small

Top-Ten Proofs of God’s Existence

The human body is more complex than anything man can build. A complex design requires a designer. Who designed the human body?

Consider the following:

The human skeleton is flexible with hinges and joints that allow movement. However, just like man-made machines, moving parts must be lubricated to reduce harmful friction. Man-made machines are lubricated by outside sources; we have to pour oil into a car. In contrast, the human body lubricates itself by manufacturing a jelly-like substance in the right amount at [...]

Lesson 3 of 10 The Universe Operates By Uniform Laws Why Does It

Top-Ten Proofs of God’s Existence

Why do the laws of nature never change? Why is the universe so orderly? Why isn’t it a swirling random maelstrom? The reality is that the universe is governed by the “laws of nature” that never change, and those laws even possess an order that can be expressed mathematically. Why? If there are laws, there must be a law maker.

The so-called “laws of natural” govern everything from the motion of the planets to the revolution of electrons around atoms. According to Ralph [...]

Top-Ten Proofs of God’s Existence

Most people believe there is a God, but why? Must we depend on the Bible for our proof? Of course you can, but there is an extra-biblical reason to believe that God exists: the complex design of the universe.

COMPLEX DESIGN of the universe

The universe is fine tuned. For example, Stephen Hawking has estimated that if the rate of expansion one second after the Big Bang was smaller by one part in a hundred thousand million million the universe would have collapsed. [...]

Lesson 1 of 10 The Universe Began What Caused It?

Big_Bang

Top-Ten Proofs of God’s Existence

According to the Big Bang theory, the universe began. Therefore, what begins must have a cause. What is the cause? Could the Big Bang have occurred out of nothing, what scientists call a “singularity” (compression of the universe’s matter into a point with zero volume but infinite density)? Could space, time, and matter have come from nothing and by nothing? On the contrary, Dr. William Lane Craig explains that the Big Bang theory confirms creation by God and the existence of God.
