What have you been thinking about? How do you know God exists? Is there truly a God? How can anyone be sure such a being exists?
How can we know if God exists? Is it possible for a finite mind to know if God exists? There are three main arguments that theists those who believe in God use to demonstrate the existence of God. They are the cosmological argument, the teleological argument, and the moral argument.
The Cosmological Argument This is an argument from creation to a Creator. The cosmological argument can be summarized as follows: The universe had a beginning. Anything that had a beginning must have been caused by something else.
Therefore the universe was caused by something else a Creator. There is a wealth of scientific evidence supporting the first premise. The second law of thermodynamics states that in a closed, isolated system the amount of usable energy is continually decreasing. As a closed system, the universe started with a finite amount of usable energy, and it is running from order toward disorder.
Since the universe still has usable energy remaining, it cannot be eternal, or it would have ran out of usable energy long ago. Astronomy has given much evidence that the universe had a beginning. The Big Bang Theory posits that the universe exploded into existence and is now expanding.
A radiation echo that produced the exact pattern of wavelengths expected from a great explosion was also discovered.
Additionally, astronomers have found a great mass of energy that would be expected from the initial explosion.
As science continues to provide evidence that the universe had a beginning, we are left with two possibilities. Either no one created something out of nothing, or someone created something out of nothing.
Which option is more reasonable? It can be stated as follows: All designs imply a designer. There is great design in the universe.
Therefore there must be a Great Designer of the universe. From our experience, we know that natural causes never produce specified complex systems, such as books, symphonies, or cars. We know that natural causes of wind and water produced the Grand Canyon, but we would never say that wind and water naturally produced Mount Rushmore.
Watches imply a watchmaker, buildings imply an architect, and books imply an author. The design in these things is obvious, and we conclude a designer.So any answer to the question, “How do we know there is a God?” that does not start with God’s own statements regarding Himself is self-refuting, inconsistent, and limited by human frailty because a finite, limited man can never ultimately prove the existence of an eternal, all-powerful, all-knowing God.
Only an eternal, all-powerful, all-knowing being could prove the existence of the God described in the Bible. THE ISSUE: Can we know for sure that God really exists?
WHAT SKEPTICS SAY: It's foolish to believe in an invisible, impersonal God without empirical proof that He exists. WHAT CHRISTIANS SAY: God's existence can't be proved. (At least scientifically.) Yet the weight of evidence not only makes it possible to believe in God's existence—it makes it very hard to ignore.
As we continue through the chart, we see Lithium, Li, has an atomic number of 3, for it has three protons in the nucleus and 3 electrons in orbit. Therefore, it is with Beryllium, symbol Be, atomic number 4 with four protons in a peanut-like cluster nucleus and 4 four moon-like electrons in orbit.
We can’t prove God exists in a scientific sense. However, many things can’t be proved scientifically and they are still true. There’s a sense in which humanity has simply accepted that there is a God, or gods.
Yes, we can assure them through faith we can know Jesus and God exists. Faith is the only avenue that leads to full knowledge and acceptance of Father God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. No living person can say, I have seen God/Jesus.
God Exists QUESTION: How can we know if God exists? ANSWER: Is it possible for a finite mind to know if God exists? There are three main arguments that theists (those who believe in God) use to demonstrate the existence of God. They are the cosmological argument, the teleological argument, and the moral argument.
