How Can I Know God Exists? Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Questions About God How can I know God exists?
  • 2. How can I know God exists?
    • Some arguments why God exists:
      • Cosmological: Because the universe exists (Genesis 1:1-2:3)
      • Teleological: We live in an orderly and very complex universe (Psalms 19:1-6)
      • Anthropological: The way humans are made (Psalms 139:13-16
    • God relates to us in different ways (Deut. 1:29-31; Acts 14:11-17; 1 Cor. 4:4-5; Gal. 3:25-27)
  • 3. Group Questions
    • What are some things that seem to indicate that God doesn’t exist?
    • What do you think of the claim that if we could prove that God exists, he wouldn’t be much of a God?
    • What do you think it would take for everyone in the world to become completely convinced that God exists?
  • 4. Romans 1:18-25
    • 18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities-his eternal power and divine nature-have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.
    • 21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.
    • 24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator-who is forever praised. Amen.
  • 5. Psalm 19:1-6
    • The heavens declare the glory of God;
    • the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
    • 2 Day after day they pour forth speech;
    • night after night they display knowledge.
    • 3 There is no speech or language
    • where their voice is not heard.
    • 4 Their voice goes out into all the earth,
    • their words to the ends of the world.
    • In the heavens he has pitched a tent for the sun,
    • 5 which is like a bridegroom coming forth from his pavilion,
    • like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
    • 6 It rises at one end of the heavens
    • and makes its circuit to the other;
    • nothing is hidden from its heat.
  • 6. More Questions
    • What are a few of the reasons people doubt the existence of God according to these verses?
    • What does “futile” thinking look like today?
    • Why do you think many people prefer gods they can see, feel, hear, and touch?
    • What are some modern false Gods?
  • 7.
    • Why do you think people questions God’s existence?
    • Which of these reasons can you relate to personally?
    • Tell your partner about a time you were tempted to doubt God’s existence and explain why. Then think of things in which you see evidence of God’s existence.
