Who Created God?

COPYRIGHT WARNING

Who Created God?The Atheists asks the question, “Who created God?,” assuming that His existence necessitated a cause.

This is a fundamental error that atheists make in their inability to perceive God. They imagine that God must be created. Those who do believe in God, do not believe in a God who came into existence at some point in time. In this manner, Christians also do not believe in the kind of God that the atheists do not believe in.

The fallacy of insisting that God must have a creator Himself, runs an illogical circle of never-ending god’s who were each made by a god before them. In order for one who is truly God to exist, He must be singular and uncreated.

Let us consider this premise: The term “God,” is defined as a Being who is perfect in every regard. Any being who is not perfect would not be God, with a big “G,” he would simply be one god amongst many god’s, little “g.”

Since there can only be one God (big G), this first premise requires that He must be perfect in every regard, incapable of error or wrongful actions. If God were able to commit error, He would not be perfect, and therefore he could not be God. Continue reading “Who Created God?”

The Gay Marriage Argument Based Upon Disputed Bible Verses

COPYRIGHT WARNING

Those who view gay marriage as a right, often misuse Bible verses for their assertions. The basis for their argument is that certain strange moral behaviors are endorsed by God and the Bible, therefore, no Christian should have any problem with gay marriage.

The following chart illustrates the lack of knowledge that many atheists, critics of the Bible and the LGBT community have, regarding what the Bible teaches:[1]

The Atheist's Inability To Comprehend God

COPYRIGHT WARNING

Those Who Deny God, Cannot Understand Him

A human being is made up of three components; body, soul, and Spirit. When a person is born, the body is preeminent, it rules the life of the person. Whatever the body wants, it expresses through the desires of the flesh. The soul is the inhabitation of the emotions, where a person expresses their thoughts, feelings and emotions. The spirit, which is the only part of man that can know and understand God, is dead because of sin.[1]

When Jesus told Nicodemus, in John chapter 3, that “you must be “born again,” He was describing the spirit. In order for any person to understand God, or to comprehend His word, first his spirit must be born again, into a new relationship with God. Until our sins are dealt with and removed by God, it is impossible for us to have a relationship with God.[2]

Jesus death on the cross, paid for the sins of all people, for all time. All those who are willing to repent from their sins and come to Jesus for the forgiveness of their sins, are born again—into this new spiritual life.[3]

This is one of the preeminent differences between Biblical Christianity and religion. The religions of man ignore the spiritual side of man, regarding sin, repentance and the need to experience a new life in the spirit. Man’s religion requires conformance into a set of rules or conduct. The Bible reveals that there are no rules that any person can keep that will make them acceptable to God. It is by a reliance upon what Jesus has accomplish that God will accept any person.[4]

To those who do not know God, who have yet to experience this new birth of the spirit, these things are difficult to comprehend. Some even scoff at this possibility and find it impossible to believe. Nevertheless, this is what the text of the New Testament reveals. Continue reading “The Atheist's Inability To Comprehend God”

Evidence for God: What Kind of Proof are You Looking For?

COPYRIGHT WARNING

When beginning a conversation with those who identify themselves as an atheist, the common objection that is stated for their unbelief in God is the assertion that there is no evidence which proves His existence.

When this statement is made, we must ask: “what kind of evidence are you looking for?

The atheist will usually tell you: “empirical, scientific, testable, evidence.”

This declaration leaves the intelligent person quite perplexed. The evidence for God is quite overwhelming. It becomes clear during these conversations with the atheist that evidence is not the real hindrance to their unbelief. We find that the will of the person had firmly entrenched the mind into a refusal to acknowledge evidence, even when it is compelling and empirical. This plight is very common amongst the human species and can be observed in several similar circumstances. The will is often dictated by the heart. When the heart is unyielding or unwilling to accept facts which are contrary to the will, the heart will refuse to accept these facts. A person who has determined in advance, what the results will be, cannot accept any evidence which violates their will. Continue reading “Evidence for God: What Kind of Proof are You Looking For?”

The Overwhelming Empirical Evidence for Jesus Death and Resurrection

COPYRIGHT WARNING

It is a fundamental principle of factual authenticity that no amount of evidence is ever sufficient to convince most skeptics of the Bible and the Historical Jesus–that both are true and reliable.

This author has been actively in pursuit of the facts of Jesus’ Resurrection, as well as the historicity of His existence as a real person of antiquity, for nearly 40 years. During this time, the facts which fully validate Jesus as a real person of history have continued to pile up–while those who reject Jesus has also increased. A person who has determined the end result of any question or unknown subject before the search begins cannot be convinced by evidence. Only those who are intellectually honest and are willing to follow the facts where they lead, may discover the real truth of any question of life.

I have found that in every discussion with atheist’s today who believe that the person of Jesus Christ is a myth, these individuals rarely investigate the available evidence for themselves. It is a clear and reoccurring problem with many atheists that they do not care to investigate evidence. Relying instead upon the words of other atheists a great number of critics simply do not investigate the facts to see if they are valid. It has been clear to me over the past 40 years that a great number of conclusions made by unbelievers are based upon personal choice rather than evidence. When a person does not want to believe something, they often look for others who agree with their conclusions in order to validate their choice.

In this article I present a brief example of historical evidence for the man described as Jesus of Nazareth which has been a part of the historical record for over 2,000 years. Even against vigorous opposition from adversaries who refuse to accept the written historical record, this evidence from secular history has been full validated by literary and historical scholars.

Who Made God?

COPYRIGHT WARNING

In their peripherally limited understanding, many scientists today state that everything which exists must have a first cause. Nothing can exist unless it has a cause. This premise is true of all temporal objects but untrue of those things that are eternal. Anything which is eternal by its existence outside of time would have no beginning and is therefore not created. God is before all things and is outside of the conventional rules which apply to the material universe or the beings which inhabit it. God was not made by a God before Him, and that God by another before Him, and so on. These are human observations, and they are not based on facts.

In order that God could exist, He would have to be before and above all other things. He would permit no other god’s and in reality, no other God could exist if there was One all powerful, eternal and perfect God. This is the claim made by the God of the Bible.

The pagan concept of many gods is ludicrous, when we consider that a God with the power to create the cosmos must Himself be the only one. It is impossible that there could be competing gods for the title of God. From the naturalistic mind of today’s scientists and astronomers, if there were a God, He would necessarily have come from a God before Him, and so on. If we follow this line of reasoning, what do we do when we get back to the beginning? Where did the first God come from? Who created Him? Continue reading “Who Made God?”

The Non-Theist, Materialist, and Humanist Claim of Man's Evolution as a Moral Being

COPYRIGHT WARNING

This world cries out for “Peace,” but in all the history of man upon the earth, there has never been a sustained period of time in which peace reigned.

In the last 3,000 years of man’s recorded history, there has only been 286 years without a war. There have been over 15,000 wars resulting in 4 billion deaths.[1]

For the humanist, materialist, and non-theist, this record is a stunning indictment upon the premise that man is evolving into a more civilized and peaceful species.[1a] In fact, the opposite is true. As time progresses, men simply develop more creative ways to kill other men. The Biblical view of man as a fallen being, who is incapable of peace, is precisely what the evidence validates. Unless God intervenes in the history of mankind, we would certainly annihilate our species and destroy the earth.

It is Hard to be an Atheist

In this article:

1. The rules of debate and laws for evidence and how points of fact and objections should be conducted.
2. The Impossibility of convincing an atheist that God exists.
3. The true reasons that people will not believe in God.
4. Defeating arguments for God, comforts the conscience.
5. Points of fact concerning the universe as evidence for God.
6. Points of fact concerning man as evidence for God.
7. God as a necessary reason for everything.

It is very difficult to maintain the position of an atheist without appearing as rather untrained and uniformed. Many of the arguments set forth by the atheist, when turned in examination of their assertions—leaves the reader without a sufficient basis to conclude that God cannot exist. In fact—when the claims of the atheists are carefully examined, it can be determined that the are immensely uniformed about the subject of God, the Bible, and the true doctrines of the Christian faith. Although these are the very subject to which they speak as authorities, it can frequently be demonstrated that they have no real knowledge about any of these subjects in which they dispute.

10 Reasons Why Atheists Will Not Believe In God

COPYRIGHT WARNING

After many years of conversing with atheists, it has become clear what the real reasons are for their unwillingness to believe that God exists.

Although conversations with those who do not believe in God will eventually venture into their intellectual objections to the Christian Gospel, in truth, their objections are a camouflage for the true barriers of their heart.

The following list is the result of my own observations of those who have told me the many reasons why they do not believe in God. After having had the opportunity to try and get to know the persons who call themselves or live by the defining definition of an atheist, these are the conclusion that I have arrived at.

The Atheist' Assertion that "God Does Not Exist," Is Not Supported by Evidence

COPYRIGHT WARNING

Atheist: “There is no evidence for God.”
Christian: “Here is evidence for God,”
Atheist: “There is no evidence for God.”

Get the picture?

You will often hear an atheist assert that there is no evidence for the existence of God. You will seldom, however, hear or see any point of fact from an atheist to prove their claim.

Ask an atheists to show you one paper they have personally written, that is of substantial content, which proves their point that God does not exist. You will discover that only one in a thousand have actually done any personal research to support their view. The claims that a majority of atheists make—come from other atheists, who have received their information from other atheists, and so on.
