God's Existence

Arguments for God's Existence

Psalm 90:2
Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.
NIV

There are really only two arguments in favor of the existence of God. One comes from reason and the other from experience. These arguments are, of necessity, arguments for the existence of God apart and separate from what Scripture tells us about God. Of course, since man applies his reason to everything anyway, the arguments from experience exist in a variety of possibilities. And, some "experience" is necessary even for the argument of reason.

One must also remember that there is no evidence to prove God. Man does not "see" God, man only views evidence of God. Man never sees God. Therefore, all arguments for God's existence must be circumstantial based upon logic and experience.

The argument from reason is an a priori argument and is usually called an ontological argument. It is based upon the presupposition that something had to create all that is around us.

The arguments from experience are a posteriori and are based upon one of several approaches. These include

Scripture tells us the atheist is a fool.

Psalm 14:1
The fool has said in his heart,"There is no God." They are corrupt, They have done abominable works, There is none who does good. NKJV

Logic and reason, yes, even experience, tell us there is a God.
