Over the past number of days I have written about three different ways man has tried to prove the existence of God apart from the Bible. However we have seen that the Cosmological, Teleological, and the Moral proof are all incorrect and can never prove that there is the God of the Bible to the unbeliever. No matter what logical we use, no matter what human reasoning we use the wicked will never confess that there is Jehovah is the one true God. Psalm 14:1 – 3 says, “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, There is none that doeth good. The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, To see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: There is none that doeth good, no, not one.”
Man, apart from the grace and faith of God, will never confess God. Not only will he confess that the God of the Bible does not exist, he will create his own gods after his own corrupt imagination. Romans 1:21 – 25 says this exact thing, “Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.” That is why we have the Jewish, Islamic, and Buddhists religion; it is because man has rejected the one true God and created his own gods. These religions will never save man. They are lies straight from the devil. C.S. Lewis was wrong in his book The Last Battle when he says that the follower of Tash, the false god, was saved. To quote from the book, “I (e.g. the follower of Tash) fell at his feet and thought surely this is the hour of death, for the Lion will know that I have served Tash all my days and not him”. However, Emeth, the name of the follower of Tash, was accepted; Aslan said “Son thou art welcome. But I said, alas Lord I am no son of thine but the servant of Tash. He answered, Child all the service thou hast done to Tash I account as service done to me.” The Bible is very adamant in saying that you have to believe in Christ in order to be saved. John 3:15 says, “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.” In contrast those who do not believe in Him are thrown into hell.
Thus, the only way for man to come to know the existence of the true God is only by the grace of God through the Word of God. To quote Ephesians 2:8, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:” It is entirely through faith that we believe in the one true God. Thanks be to God for the faith He has given to us!
