Prove There is a God?
From the Primitive Baptist/
Christian Pathway/ Gospel Appeal October 2019
Atheists are constantly challenging us to prove there is a
God. They make the assumption, I oppose, that since they
cannot see God there must not-be a God; and thus they smugly
assume that their challenge cannot be met, as if visibility
is the only proof of existence. They cannot see air, and yet
they believe air exists.
The truth is that they do not
wish to believe in God, and generally when a man does not
want to believe something he will not, no matter what
evidence is presented to him. He will merely discount the
evidence by claiming it is faulty.
The fact of the matter is, of
course, that there is an overwhelming abundance of evidence
for any man to believe God's existence if he is willing and
able to do so. Even apart from grace, pure natural logic
should lead any honest person to admit the existence of a
Supreme Being. For example, how did the Periodic Table of
the Elements come to be? Wasn't it convenient that the
nature of the various elements just happened to be such that
they would combine in all the different ways that are
beneficial to mankind (such as hydrogen and oxygen combining
to make water)? Evolution surely is smart!
However, on second thought,
why should we have to prove that there is a God? Let them
prove that there is not a God. Let them prove (not merely
claim) that all the amazing intricacies and beauties of
nature just happened to be as they are. Let them prove that
the delicate mechanism of the human eye and the matchless
beauty of a rose were purely the result of chance. They
would have vastly the greater task. They would have an
