The Existence of God (3) The Moral Proof

The next proof for the existence of God that will be considered is the Moral Proof. This proof says that every man has some sense of what is right and wrong.  Not only does he have that sense of morality but he also feels obligated to do what is right. This ultimately leads to the conclusion that there must be a God who puts this moral desire in man’s heart.

It is certainly true that God has placed a conscience in man. Isaiah 30:21 says, “And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, When ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.” Romans 2:14, 15 expresses the same idea, “For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)” However, Romans 2 makes it plain that although man has a conscience he still is not convicted that there is a God. Their conscience either accuses them or excuses them before the judgement of God. There are thousands of people who may be considered moral but are in no way brought to the God of the Bible. Thus the Moral Proof in no way proves the existence of God.
