Does God Exist?

Keith Sharp

Have you ever stood alone on a star-filled evening and marvelled at the silent majesty of the infinity into which you gaze? Have you ever paused to meditate upon the unmeasured enormity of that expanse, its known portion being measured in billions of light years? Have you considered the astounding precision of each movement of this awesomely complex universe? Then did you wonder from whence it all came? Did unthinking forces in matter cause all this unimaginable precision and beauty? If so, from whence came the forces and matter? Is it not obvious that an all-knowing, all-powerful God is the only reasonable answer? "For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made" (Romans 1:20; New American Standard Bible). In the presence of such undeniable evidence that surrounds us all, only the fool can save, "There is no God." (Psalm 14: 1) Indeed, "The heavens declare the glory of God!" (Psalm 14: 1)
