Let’s be honest, those who assert that God does not exist, do not have a reasonable premise to base their objection upon. It is acceptable to most thinking persons that things which are obvious are a very good explanation for things unknown. For example: we have a masterful universe that is uniquely designed for life to exist. Atheists will tell you that this universe is the product of chance, which is the standard default answer for anything atheists cannot explain. Those with intellectual honesty will stipulate that the reason the universe appears designed is because it is. The fact that we are all here on earth and flourishing in the environment we find ourselves, is sufficient proof that God must exist.

I have thought a lot about those who deny God’s existence; and after decades of observing the character and life of those who reject the Lord, I fail to see the attraction of a life without Him. First of all, the claim that there is no God makes no rational sense to me. It is obvious that we live in a universe that is inexplicable, apart from an eternal intelligence as its source. How highly educated men and woman, who have spent years studying and growing in knowledge, can come to the conclusion that this exceedingly ordered and delicately balanced universe came into being by chance, is a mystery to me. They admit that they have no explanation for how these finely tuned absolutes fixed themselves to allow for life, believing instead that it all happened by blind chance.
Science is based on observable data that can be tested. Since all of the data regarding the existence of the universe points to design and purpose, it seems that wise men and women should not discount the possibility of God as its origin. It is much easier to understand the universe if we put a designer into the equation rather than persisting in an uncaused, accidental universe with no purpose.

At the heart of the salvation issue is the Holiness of God and His Glory. Because God is so magnificent, and all things have come from Him—all glory, honor, and praise belong to Him alone.
Isaiah 48:11 … I will not give My glory to another.
Psalms 24:1 The earth is the LORD’S, and all its fullness, The world and those who dwell therein.
If we consider that the entire universe was created by God, everything that we can see, and even the invisible world of the atom, all things are made by God. It is reasonable that He would not allow any of His creation to receive praise for His magnificent works. If we give a gift to God, those things that we present to Him were already His to begin with. He is certainly pleased with our gifts when we acknowledge that He is the originator of all our gifts. If we make something and dedicate it to the Lord, the elements that we used to construct the article of our worship were already created by God.
