You are walking through a park in your neighborhood. It is your normal route. On your right is an open field and to your left is a creek. The water is high and moving faster than normal due to recent rain. As you travel along you notice a young child at the edge of the creek. You look for a parent and none is seen. You watch the child when suddenly he falls into the creek. And you walk away, leaving the child to drown, because going into the creek would be a risk to your own life.
Would you do that? How would you feel about someone who did that? I mean they might say, it wasn’t my child. I was busy. I was making record time on my mile. Would those excuses sound hollow to you?
They do to me and in fact I think they do to all of us. But, why? An animal does not see another animal drowning (of which it has no instinctual connection to, such as mother to child) and feel obligated to help. But we do.
The reason you do is because there is a God who has placed within us a sense of right and wrong. It is proven anytime we make a moral judgment on something. Nothing in our natural world can explain this. Therefore we must look outside of nature to the supernatural. Thus, we must believe in a God.
Next post will deal with the atheists counter-argument and what this teaches us about God’s nature.
