Answers to Difficult Questions
By Pastor Nick Bibile
1. How do we know that there is God?
Where did God come from? Who made God? These are some basic questions that many children and unbelievers ask. If someone says that God does not exist and he is very positive of his remark, then the Bible says, "The fool says in his heart, there is no God." (Psalm 14:1, 53:1) This person directly denies the existence of the personal God. A person to this conclusion, he had researched and investigated the entire universe and positively found that God does not exist. The Bible is not sarcastic in saying that person is a fool, but he is a fool that lost wisdom, a right understanding of God. He is the one who is dead in sin. The Bible says, "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 there voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world." (Psalm 19:1-4) Everyday we see the creation of this world, there is one sun, moon, the carbon dioxide for the plants to inhale and oxygen to exhale, man in turn inhale the oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide, there is water for survival, food for hunger, materials for protection and of course the mountains, trees, waterfalls, and how a knowledgeable and a powerful Creator has arranged and placed everything in order. If the earth was a little closer to the sun we will all burn and is we are a little away from the sun we will all be frozen. We all see the clear picture of the designer and yet there are who deny that there is a designer. It is as if an artist who painted a beautiful picture and the person who looks at it says, there is no artist. The Bible says that person is a fool. Even if we look at the our body structure, the internal organs how it is arranged precisely, even if one internal organ is lost it is not possible for the body to function. It is like a person looking at a watch that is precisely put together and shows seconds, minutes and hours, but yet denying there is no watchmaker. The Bible says that person is a fool. The reason even the most intellectual people are seeing Gods creation and yet cannot comprehend, is because they are spiritually dead. Sin has affected their heart, mind and will.
