How do you know God exists?

Here is a question that has been asked many times by many people: “If you can’t see God, how can you believe in Him?”  When you think about it, there are a lot of things we cannot see, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t exist.   Here is a response: “Do you believe in gravity?” Try jumping off a building and you’ll find gravity exists even if you can’t see it.

People assume to believe in God we have to take a blind leap of faith and shelve our brains.  In reality, it is the unbeliever who is acting on faith by believing there is NO God without investigating it for themselves.

By the way, there is NO evidence to prove that there is no God!!  An honest skeptic will have to admit he has no proof that God does not exist.

Answers for the Skeptic – evidence for God:   C.A.D.O.

C  Creation:  Every time you see a piece of machinery like a bicycle, you know it has to have a creator.

A Art:   Every time you see a piece of art, you know it is made by an artist.

D Design:  Every time you see a wrist watch, you know there it had a designer.

O Order:  Every time you see 10 coke cans lined up in an orderly manner, you know they had someone was an “order-er”.

When we look at the universe, what do you see?  We see creation, art, design and order.  If everything else has a creator-designer, isn’t it reasonable to expect something as intricate and complicated as our universe will also have a creator-designer behind it?

Creation/creator, art/artist, design/designer, order/orderer: These are all logical, reasonable evidence that there is a God behind this universe.

“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.  For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse.”  Romans 1:18-20
