As we deal with our friends, neighbors, and co-workers, we will inevitably come across people who do not believe that God exists. Some will ask us why we still believe. Over the past couple of weeks we have looked at answers we can give to that question, and in this lesson we look at a third, The Moral Argument for the Existence of God.
We talk a lot about church attendance. We ought to know how important it is for Christians to gather together for worship. But it’s so much more than putting bodies in the seats. It is important that we understand that God has given us good reasons for wanting to come and worship Him. It’s all based in what He has done for us through His Son, Jesus Christ.
As we continue how we ought to be prepared to give an answer to those who ask why we believe, we are looking at another argument for evidence of God’s existence. In this case we are considered the Teleological, or Design, Argument, making the case that because this universe maintains all the characteristics of being fine-tuned, there must be a designer.
Our God is a God of comfort, and he has given us assurances of his love for us throughout the scriptures. One example is found in Romans 8:1, a most comforting verse. As we consider the first half of this chapter, let’s notice “The Uncondemned Life.” of all who are in Christ Jesus
Since we are to be prepared to give an answer to those that would ask why we believe (1 Pet. 3:15), it logically follows that we ourselves understand good reasons to believe. This short series will examine three arguments for the existence of God. Through these arguments not only will we be better equipped to give an answer, but our faith should be strengthened as well. This first lesson focuses on the Cosmological Argument for the Existence of God.
The gospel is a wonderful thing, and in the gospel is the power of salvation. God has given us a charge to preach that blessed gospel. Can we, along with Paul, say that we are not ashamed?
