Men will continue to go on and on about God how doesn’t exist. Let them. God will have the last word. But in His written Word He knows they see Him (Romans 1). They know He’s there.
“Does God exist?” This is a question that has been around for ages. Debates on the existence of God abound. Whether it’s on Facebook, Twitter, or formal debates between academic scholars, people have been discussing God for centuries.
However, in this post I’d like to make the argument that God can’t not exist. Put positively: God has to exist. I’d like to do so by pointing to three main areas: truth, morality, and beauty.
The culture today is widely inconsistent yet they don’t even know (although I’m sure some do). When we bring up truth, skeptics declare that truth is relative and is not knowable. However, in order for someone to make that definitive statement, he or she must have knowledge about truth. How can you have knowledge about truth when you just said truth is unknowable?
The truth about truth is that truth is objective (say that sentences five times fast!). It is absolute. This simply means that, for example, 2+2=4 anywhere you go and whatever generation you live in. Truth is not based on one’s personal preference.
Truth is objective because, ultimately, truth is grounded in the character of God Himself. Truth is knowable because God communicates to and with us. All truth is God’s truth. No truth exists outside of God’s control. We can know something for certain because we have an objective standard, that is, God.
The problem is people attempt to say truth is relative, but they cannot function that way. Nobody does. There’s not a person on God’s green earth that consistently lives out relative truth. It’s impossible, and that’s because we weren’t wired to live as though truth is subjective. We can’t get away from it. God has made Himself known (Romans 1).
What Hitler did was wicked. Any skeptic cannot definitively affirm that unless he or she (inconsistently) believes morality is objective. Subjective morality is no morality—do we not understand this? It’s the same issue as truth. If you reduce morality to mere societal or personal preferences, you throw any moral superiority out the window. At that point, you cannot reasonably claim anything is right or wrong. At that point there are not “oughts.”
