About God

Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom.
Psalm 145:3 NIV       
Innate Idea = An idea that as soon as the proper occasion is afforded the mind grasps the truth without argument and without a process of reasoning. (Example = Time It can’t be proved or disproved but when able, all humans believe in its existence.)
Every culture and every race of man has an Innate Idea of God. Did you have to be told that God exists or have you always known it?
Helen Keller was being taught about God and she exclaimed “I always had this idea.” She knew that a god existed before being told.
The Existence of God
The scriptures assume and declare the existence of God.
Theistic Arguments
The Cosmological Argument
Every thing that has a beginning owes its existence to some producing source. Therefore, if the universe has a beginning, it must have a producing source or creator who would be God – Even evolutionists can’t explain where the mater that caused the big bang came from.
The Teleological Argument
We can see examples of intelligence in the universe therefore we can conclude that it’s producing source is intelligent and that intelligence would be God.
The Ontological Argument
“The conception of a perfect Being, then which nothing is greater can be thought, is imposable, unless it’s existence is certain.” – Example Think of a circle with 4 right angles and 4 straight lines. You can’t picture it because it is imposable for a circle to have straight lines and angels. If we can picture a Perfect Being, then a Perfect Being must be possible and that being would be God.
The Anthropological; Argument
All cultures have a knowledge of right and wrong. They might no agree that the some things are right but they do all agree that certain things are unquestionably right and certain things are unquestionably wrong.
The Being and Attributes of God
