Romans 1:20, “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.”
Yes, God does exist! In today’s passage Paul taught that everyone already really knows that God exists and are without excuse. In a few verses prior Paul explained why people try to claim there is no God, Romans 1:18-19, “18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.” Therefore, the only reason why people disbelieve in God is because they suppress the truth of His existence with their sin.
Think about it, if there’s a watch, there’s a watchmaker. If there’s a car, there’s a carmaker. And certainly, if there’s a creation, there’s a Creator.
However, I’ve actually heard some people say, “I don’t believe in God because I believe in science!” The person making this statement has no real understanding of either one. True Christians have always believed in science, which is the gathering of knowledge. For example, Francis Bacon, the scientist who established the scientific method itself, known as induction, was a Christian.
Sir Isaac Newton, who was one of the most influential scientists in history, was also a devote Christian who wrote more about the Bible than he did science. Newton said, “Gravity explains the motions of the planets, but it cannot explain who set the planets in motion. God governs all things and knows all that is or can be done.” Not only have Christian scientists understood the greatness of God’s wisdom in creation, but even non-Christians have had to admit this too. Albert Einstein said, “The most incomprehensible thing about the universe is that it is comprehensible.”
There are many evidences for God’s existence but remember the best one is God’s witness to you in your heart right now! As well as: (1) The Evidence From Design: The universe’s laws are precisely ordered for life- without these properties life couldn’t exist. (2) The Evidence From Objective Morality: Man’s inward moral compass proves a moral law giver- for we all generally feel the same towards evil. (3) The Evidence From the First Cause: Something cannot come from nothing; thus, everything that has a beginning has a cause.
(4) Evidence from Your Intelligence: Last, but not least, the best evidence for God is your intelligence. The very fact that you can question if there is a God proves that God exists. Matter doesn’t produce mind and reason doesn’t come from rocks. You were made in the image of God and the Bible actually says you already know this because without Him you wouldn’t exist and everything would be reduced to absurdity. For example, it’s absurd for a child to try and disprove they have parents and the same is true for a creature to try and prove a Creator didn’t create them.
If you have doubts about God because you are suppressing the truth in wickedness, I challenge you to humble yourself, repent of your pride, pray, read the New Testament starting with John and ask God to reveal Himself to you in the person of Jesus Christ. I believe if you truly humble yourself, seek Him and open up your heart to Jesus you will know Him personally like I do! For those who already know and love God, let us be eager to share His message of redemption to the world around us.
- If you’re suppressing the knowledge of God; humble yourself to acknowledge the inner witness of His existence in your conscience and reach out to Him (Acts 17:27-28).
- Those who believe in God don’t be afraid of science because whatever is true has come from God and will confirm His Word!
- Christians, pray and help others discover the truth of God’s existence.
