For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.
Romans 1:20 – Scripture of the Day (March 12, 2014)
I think we can all agree that God is under attack in our society these days, and one of the biggest weapons used against him by the militant atheists is that to have faith in a “Higher Power” goes against rational scientific evidence. “Science proves that God is a myth!” we hear over and over, when in fact the opposite is true. Faith in Yahweh is not a subjective, blind, “leap into the abyss hoping someone is there to catch you,” emotional experience. True faith both can and must be reasonable and intellectual.
Because of this, the existence of God is provable to any fair-minded individual. Take, for example, the undeniable existence of the universe. What is the explanation of its existence?
- Is it eternal? Not according to modern science, which is attempting to give an age to the universe…and thus admitting by default that it has an origin and is therefore not eternal.
- Did it create itself from nothing? Not according to modern science, which admits there is no known natural process in which matter could fashion itself from nothing.
Since the universe is not eternal and did not create itself, the only logical explanation is that it was created by something which existed before it and is superior to it…God (Rom. 1:20; cf. Heb. 3:4).
