CLASSIC PROOFS OF GOD'S EXISTENCE
God is the Prime Mover
Everything is in motion,
from the galaxies in the heavens, to our Earth and Moon. Everything
around us manifests energy, dynamism and changeability—that is motion.
Back in time, all this motion had a beginning. Science refers to this
beginning as “The Big Bang.” The One who emanates energy and put
everything in motion is the First Cause.
God is the First Cause
Billions of years ago,
matter came into being from energy. All the particles in the universe
were compressed into a miniscule, super-compressed ball which a
titanic explosion propelled into space at an incomprehensible speed.
Particles appeared because they were willed to appear and they were
willed to combine into atoms with the capacity to combine into a great
variety of minerals and chemicals. The mind that willed the appearance
of the building blocks of the universe is God.
Order and Design in
Order abounds in
creation. This implies that there is an “Orderer,” that is someone who is
behind the amazing and wonderful order we see everywhere in nature.
The natural world abounds in design and purpose. The multitudes of systems
that operate and co-operate in the universe imply a Creator. Design
abounds, even in the smallest of organisms. In the human body, organs are
designed to perform specific functions and to cooperate with all other
organs in incredible harmony. There is beauty, and stunning design even in
the strangest of creatures. All order and design points in the
direction of Someone who willed it and who maintains it: God.
been a trademark of the Judeo-Christian God, since the beginning.
Countless witnesses have testified to and have written about God’s mighty
works as they are recorded in the Bible. In the New Testament, Christ
witnessed to God’s power by performing great wonders and by bringing
people back from the dead. Later, His followers continued manifesting
God’s power by doing other mighty works, as recorded by totally faithful
and truthful witnesses. As well, countless Christians, throughout the
ages, have received miraculous answers to their prayers. The source
of these great wonders is the all-powerful God.
abounds in fulfilled prophecies that point to God’s existence. For
instance, God enunciated many prophecies relating to Israel, Judah and
many other nations -- and they were fulfilled. The prophetic
warnings of captivity for both Israel and Judah came to pass. The
punishments prophesied against other nations, such as Babylon, and
Assyria, were fulfilled as well. After a prolonged captivity, Judah was to
return from exile -- and it occurred, as described in Ezra and
Nehemiah. After two thousand years of Diaspora, the Jews are back in the
Promised Land, as prophesied in the Old and New Testament. Only an
all-powerful Being can foretell events hundreds of years in advance and
then make sure they come to pass.
Jesus Christ’s First Coming
Testament scriptures prophesied, in great detail, the coming of Christ and
many of the events surrounding his coming. All the prophecies
relating to Christ’s first coming were fulfilled is astonishing detail.
Christ was the promised Messiah and God in the flesh Who lived among men
and manifested His great power before thousands of witnesses. Some such
witnesses have faithfully recorded Christ’s great works, His death and His
resurrection in the New Testament.
The Ten Commandments
Sinai, humans were slaves to oppressive gods that demanded blind
submission and offered no guiding moral law. The God of Israel
revolutionized the ancient world with ten amazing laws that had the
inherent potential to bring about mental peace, social harmony and freedom
from the disastrous consequences of sin. No human mind could have ever
conceived such concise, yet powerfully transforming package. The Ten
Commandments are from God.
Greatest Minds Believed
Unlike what many atheists propagate, most of
the greatest intellects of the past reached the same conclusion: God
exists. The fathers of Science, such as Newton, Galileo, Kepler, Gilbert,
Copernicus and Einstein held a firm belief in God and openly professed
their belief (Caputo, 2000). The 20th century greatest
scientist, Einstein, declared that
“the harmony of natural
law…reveals an intelligence of such superiority that, compared with it,
all the systematic thinking and acting of human beings is an utterly
(Albert Einstein, in Iain, 1982, p. 57).
