The Bible assumes God. Genesis 1:1 states in the begginning “God was.” The existence of God should be self evident to all. Sadly, sin has blinded the eyes of many in our age.
This means Christians need to prepare themselves to give an explanation for their belief in the Almighty. Peters says as much: “Always be prepared to give an answer to the hope within you” (I Peter 3:15). Our job is not to convince, but to simple reasonable explain* our faith.
The following series of posts hope to do just that. We hope to begin by providing reasonable (at least to my mind) explanations as to the existence of God. Although we will not argue from Scripture in this series, we are convinced that Scripture supports the notion that through engaging our universe man can come to know certain truths about the Creator. After that I hope we can continue our journey by reasonably explaining other aspects of the Christian faith (nature of Scripture, resurrection of Christ, etc…). Let’s grow together.
* Reasonable explain is a better translation of “give an answer” of the Greek word apologian in the opinion of this Bible student.
