Does GOD exist.

Natural Laws

The universe is directed by established laws, there must be a law Giver, GOD!

-Thermodynamics-Heat Power

No exceptions or contradictions to these laws have ever been observed.

1st law of thermodynamics-

Matter can neither be created nor destroyed, it is just changing state. Gas to liquid, liquid to solid. Energy is lost each time it changes state. We are burning up our fossil fuels. 

Genesis 2:1 KJV

[1] Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.

2nd law of thermodynamics- 

Increased randomness. Energy is becoming more random and less available. 

The sun.

At one point we had no randomness, so the universe had a beginning, like a clock wound up, who wound the clock?

Isaiah 51:6 KJV

[6] Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished.

 (Psalms 102:25,26; Hebrews 1:11)

3rd law of thermodynamics-

All matter is moving toward absolute zero temperature -459.7 degrees Fahrenheit. Entropy

Psalm 19:1-4 KJV

[1] The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. [2] Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. [3] There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. [4] Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,

Teleological argument-

A study of something that has purpose, is entire, perfect, complete.

Our universe, specifically our solar system is fine tuned to support life.

Using the purpose and design to explain the occurrence of us.

1-All designs imply a designer.

2-There is great design in the universe.

3-Therefore there must be a great Designer of the universe.

Romans 1:20-21 KJV

[20] For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: [21] Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

Hebrews 11:3 KJV

[3] Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

Cosmological argument-(Contingent)

 The cosmos, universe argument.

Every finite thing is caused by something other than itself. 

1- The universe had a beginning.

2- Anything that had a beginning must have been caused by something else.

3- Therefore the universe was caused by something else, Someone Infinite, The Creator, GOD.

Amos 4:13 KJV

[13] For, lo, he that formeth the mountains, and createth the wind, and declareth unto man what is his thought, that maketh the morning darkness, and treadeth upon the high places of the earth, The Lord , The God of hosts, is his name.

Moral argument-

1- Moral laws imply A Moral Law Giver.

2- There is an objective moral law.

3- Therefore there is A Moral Law Giver.

Acts 14:16-17 KJV

[16] Who in times past suffered all nations to walk in their own ways. [17] Nevertheless he left not himself without witness, in that he did good, and gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness.

Law of Biogenesis - 

Life only comes from previously existing life.

Acts 17:27-28 KJV

[27] That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: [28] For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

Genesis 1:21 KJV

[21] And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

Environmental evidence

1-The sun is shrinking, burning up!

At a rate of 0.1% per century, or 1% per thousand years. Just 100,000 years ago, the sun would have been so large that life on earth would not be possible in that environment. We have a young earth!

2-The Earths magnetic field is weakening!

It is an established fact that the magnetic field is weakening. To calculate the losses back to the magnetic field, the upper limits are 10,000 years. At this point the earth would rupture under the strain. Going forward, the earths magnetic field will be completely gone by 3991. 

We have a young earth!

3--Population statistics 

In the year 1 AD, 

the world population was 250 million. 

In the year 1800 it passed 1 billion.

In the year 1962 it passed 3 billion.

In the year 1985 it passed 5 billion.

In the year 1999 it passed 6 billion.

As of 4-11-2020 it is 7,777,060,000.

With current population statistics we can only go back about 5,000 years to get these quantities, which corresponds with Noah's flood. 

We have a young earth!

4-The moon is slowly drifting away from earth.

Which means it used to be closer and our tides were stronger.

We have a young earth!

5-The earths rotation is slowing down.

Which means it used to be spinning faster.

We have a young earth!

Psalm 111:4 KJV

[4] He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: the Lord is gracious and full of compassion.

Hebrews 3:4 KJV

[4] For every house is builded by some man ; but he that built all things is God.

Earths environment

Perfect balance to sustain life:

1-Wet planet

-71% of the surface of earth

-Regulates heat on earth

-70% of our oxygen comes from ocean plants

2-perfect mixture of oxygen and nitrogen

3-perfect distance from the sun

4-perfect distance from the moon

5-perfect tilt on is axis

6-Perfect watering and irrigation system

7-etc....

Ecclesiastes 3:11 KJV

[11] He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.

Human anatomy as evidence for GOD

Body systems had to be instantaneously created to insure survival.

1-Nervous system

2-Endocrine 

3-Skeletal

4-Circulatory

5-Respiratory

6-Digestive

7-Muscular

8-Sensory

9-DNA

10-The Sexes (Can evolution/random chance, explain this)

We could not have lived without any one of these and survived as a species.

Isaiah 12:5 KJV

[5] Sing unto the Lord ; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth.

Finding GOD

John 1:1-3 KJV

[1] In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. [2] The same was in the beginning with God. [3] All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

Colossians 1:14-16 KJV

[14] In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: [15] Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: [16] For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

HE is not out or reach for anyone!

2 Chronicles 15:2 KJV

[2] And he went out to meet Asa, and said unto him, Hear ye me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin; The Lord is with you, while ye be with him; and if ye seek him, he will be found of you; but if ye forsake him, he will forsake you.

Deuteronomy 4:29 KJV

[29] But if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him , if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.

1 Chronicles 28:9 KJV

[9] And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the Lord searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever.

Jeremiah 29:13 KJV

[13] And ye shall seek me, and find me , when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

Lets not be as the fool:

Psalm 14:1-3 KJV

[1] The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. [2] The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. [3] They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
