Prove God's Existence

Loutzenhiser's picture

Rom 1:20 For the invisible things of him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even his everlasting power and divinity; that they may be without excuse:

Without using the Bible, can you prove the existence of God?

Another reply to Prove Gods existence from Servetus

There is a distinction between someone being convinced of something and yet unwilling to confess,because it is for some other unknown reason against their will, and convincing them of it or them being convinced of it, those are two separate acts. In some way many who argue against the existence of God are people saying in their unbelief, which is not absolute, perhaps never is, that 'you can never make me say this, I will always be able to avoid submission'. But this may not be because you have not convinced them that they are mistaken but because they have a will that is separate, this causes them confusion, for they think that if something is true then they must be forced to say it,or they should not be able to deny it, the fact that they are able to deny it means that it must not be or may not be true and so they are justified in holding out and in laying claim to ignorance or skepticism. This should be seen as a strategy. Also there is the difference between believing and understadning which many people do not observe. When they cannot understand something they say they cannot believe it, wrongly equating believing with understanding, when it is totally possible and often necessary to believe something without understanding it. The question we should be thinking about is not the false one that unbelievers generate for us from a perverse will,namely 'how can you prove God', but is, why is the above true? A wise person doesn't always accept on face value the reasons and excuses people give to him for their unbelief but responds according to wisdom and deeper knowledge, just like the doctor doesn't accept the patients diagnosis. Aristotle says the wise know causes. Just some thoughts on the subject.

He that would come to God-must first believe that He is......
