Is there evidence God exists.

Give Me 5: Proof of God?

There is a running theory that atheists and even many Christians believe that God does not prove His existence.

Take as a prime example the god of Douglas Adams’ “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”:

“I refuse to prove that I exist,” says God, “for proof denies faith, and without faith I an nothing.”

“But,” says Man, “the Babel fish is a dead giveaway, isn’t it? It could not have evolved by chance. It proves you exist, and so therefore, by your own arguments, you don’t. QED.”

“Oh dear,” says God, “I hadn’t thought of that,” and promptly vanished in a puff of logic.

(emphasis added)

This is a fun exercise, but a) I defined faith in the last video, discrediting the second point of faith made here, and b) ABSOLUTELY NOWHERE does God say He would not offer proof.

In fact, Psalm 19:1 exclaims “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims His handiwork.

In Romans 1:18-20, Paul says:

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 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.

No, God has offered proof and calls for humanity to pay attention.

Basically, it is in the complexity and obvious orderedness of Creation, including the human body and mind.

The ultimate proof, though, may begin to sound like an overused cliche that I have used time and again: Jesus of Nazareth was God incarnate, who came as a man to talk with humanity, lived a perfect life, claimed the Hebrew Scriptures were about Him, predicted His death and resurrection claiming they would validate His message and that He is God, and then did it! (See 1 Corinthians 15)

In other words, the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ prove God exists. (And I already dealt with the reliability of Scripture.)

I am sure there are those who wish to debate this.
