People claim to reject God’s existence because it is “not scientific” or “because there is no proof.” But God does exist and ultimately everyone knows that He exists.
The existence of God is to be accepted by faith. The visible universe is not sufficient to account for itself. But it is faith, not something material, that assures us that it originated with God. This world is God’s world, and faith assures us that God originated it. But this does not meant that there is no proof of His existence. In addition to the biblical accounts for God’s existence, there are other things we need to consider.
The universe is the whole of space– time containing matter, energy, and forces. It is the summation of all physical laws and constants. It contains everything from the smallest subatomic particles to the largest galaxies. It also includes all biological entities as well as humankind. We live in a tiny globe surrounded by an endless universe. For thousands of years, long before human exploration of the universe become possible with telescopes, satellites and manned space crafts, we have been trying to learn, to discover and to understand the ultimate force behind everything we see. This is man’s attempt to find God whether we are aware of it or not.
The universe displays such an amazing design, there must have been a divine Designer. Nothing is random; there is an intricate and complex design in everything… from the human DNA to the smallest subatomic particles to the largest galaxies. Hence we cannot deny the existence of God who designed and placed everything in its proper place. Science strengthens our faith in God not reduce it.
“I know this world is ruled by infinite intelligence. Everything that surrounds us- everything that exists – proves that there are infinite laws behind it. There can be no denying this fact. It is mathematical in its precision.” — Thomas Alva Edison
Psalm 19:1-4 “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.”
The glory and wisdom of God are evident in the vastness of the cosmos. The universe is a revelation of God’s creation of the magnificent heavenly bodies. God alone is the Creator. Being unrestricted by the division of languages, natural revelation transcends human communication without the use of speech, words, and sounds. Revelation comes with no regard for linguistic or geographical barriers.
“When a load of bricks, dumped on a corner lot, can arrange themselves into a house; when a handful of springs and screws and wheels, emptied on a desk, can gather themselves into a watch, then and not until then will it seem sensible, to some of us at least, to believe that all these thousands or millions of worlds could have been created, balanced and set to revolving in their separate orbits – all without any directing intelligence at all.” — Bruce Barton
The universe (the whole cosmic system of matter and energy of which the Earth is a part) reveals the works of God. This is natural revelation. Than we have the special revelation in the Bible, the Word of God. Jesus is part of that special, a living, walking and talking Word of God.
Science is still in its infancy. We know very little about life and death. We know little about the limitless outer space. To the discerning scientific minds there is more than what we call as “natural processes”. With our inquisitive instinct, we are beginning to learn more about the amazing creation of God. The more we learn, the more we will be convinced of the existence of the Divine Being revealed in nature, in the Bible, in Jesus Christ and in our personal relationship with Him.
