The Case For The Existence Of God



Introduction
Either God exists or He doesn't. There is no middle ground. Any
attempt to remain neutral in relation to God's existence is automatically
synonymous with unbelief. It is far from a "moot" question, for if God
does exist, then nothing else really matters; if He does not exist, then
nothing really matters at all. If He does exist, then there is an eternal
heaven to be gained (Hebrews 11:16) and an eternal Hell to be avoided
(Revelation 21:8). The question for God's existence is an extremely

need to remember that Christians are not agnostics. The agnostic is the

to believe, some Christians take that same stance in regard to God's
existence. They assert that they "believe" there is a God, but that they
cannot know it. They state that God's existence cannot be proved. `This

As one writer observed, even today the evidence
indicates that "no race or tribe of men, however degraded and apparently
atheistic, lacks that spark of religious capacity which may be fanned and
