The Bible brims with overwhelming evidence of the existence of God.
When asked to prove the existence of God most people would say, “You can’t. You just have to take His existence on faith and accept His existence as real.”
In my much younger days I would occasionally challenge folks to prove God actually exists when the conversation turned religious or I was tired of the discussion.
Invariably they would respond with Hebrews 11:1, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” “You just have to accept it,” they would reply.
My flippant response was, “So what you are saying is, you can’t prove God’s existence.”
My original belief was I really didn’t know if God existed or not, but, if I acted like he didn’t exist a simple “Ooops!” wouldn’t cut it if at my death I found out he did exist and He expected something from me. It would be too late. If I lived as though He did exist and at death I found out he didn’t exist because there was nothing afterwards, no real loss.
I considered that position to be kind of hedging my bet. No matter which way it turned out, I couldn't lose.
Over the course of time I have become as sure of God’s existence as I am I’m typing this post. I am beyond convinced God exists, God lives and God rules.
Let’s look at Hebrews 11:1 again, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” There are two very important words in the verse. One is substance (something we can see, feel and even touch) and the other is evidence (that which supports a conclusion).
The very verse people use to show one can only blindly accept actually says one doesn’t have to. You can know beyond a shadow of a doubt God is real – there is more than enough substance and evidence to prove His existence.
The Bible even when taken alone and not counting those things one finds outside of it, is loaded from beginning to end with the evidence of God’s existence.
For example, let’s look at Genesis 1:9, Then God said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear”; and it was so.
Two bodies. One, water, the other, land. Some 4,000 years ago the author of Genesis, said there was one land mass, one water mass.
There is more than enough highly provable evidence today showing there are land masses scattered all over the world. We have satellite photos actually taken from space showing this to be true. There are major and minor continents and numerous bodies of water.
Seems right off the bat the Bible got it wrong, right?
Not so fast.
Suppose for a moment we had the power to move continents around at will. We could take Africa and push it right up against North & South America and it would fit like a giant jig-saw puzzle. We could push Europe and Asia into place as well. Barring some minor shore erosion we could see they all fit to each other.
It is evident that at one time all the continents were connected to each other just like the Bible states. We can tell that by looking at the pieces.
Science calls this the Theory of Plate Tectonics. Scientists call anything they can’t see a theory no matter how much they believe it.
Science suggests at one time all the land was one body at one time. The Bible states the land was one mass 4,000 plus years before man had the ability to prove, much less accept, this was indeed the case.
How did Moses, the accepted author of Genesis, know the land was one mass 4,000 plus years before science?
The answer is simple. Someone told him. That someone was who we call God.
