Is there certain proof that the biblical God exists? Yes.
Tract by Colin Lawson
God is: The triune, self-existent, timeless, spaceless, changeless, immaterial, uncaused, omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent, Creator of everything outside of Himself, who exists by the necessity of His own nature. It belongs to His nature to exist, and it is impossible for Him to not exist. He comes before all and thus He is logically primitive; all facts and possibility of fact stem from His thoughts. He created everything and Hid necessary nature and decisions determine the very limits of possibility.
The proof is that without Him (if He did not exist and reveal Himself to mankind) we couldn’t know anything at all. He has revealed Himself in a limited way in nature (Genereal revelation), and in a more explicit way in Scripture, the Bible (Special Revelation).
Only the triune God of the Bible has the ontic attributes to provide the preconditions of intelligibility, which are (among other things)…
1.) The laws of logic (necessary for reasoning)
2.) Objective moral values (necessary for ethics)
3.) The uniformity of nature (necessary for the principle of induction and thus for science and technology)
4.) Basic reliability of senses
5.) Basic reliability of memory
Here’s How the Biblical God Accounts for the Laws of Logic
(1) God accounts for the laws of logic in that they are a reflection of the way God thinks. God cannot contradict Himself (2 Timothy 2:13), and thus the universe He created cannot contradict itself (we’ll never find a married bachelor or a round triangle). (2) He accounts for objective moral values (moral values that are valid and binding on all people, in all places, & at all times, regardless of whether anyone believes in them) in the fact that His moral decrees are determined by His holy (Isaiah 6:3), eternal (1 Timothy 1:17), and unchanging (Malachi 3:6) character and nature. (3) He accounts for the uniformity of nature (the idea that the physical laws of the universe will continue to act in a law-like fashion) because He’s the Creator of everything outside of Himself (Colossians 1:16), and upholds His creation by His consistent power (Hebrews 1:3) and he has promised a certain degree of regularity in the universe, like the seasons (Genesis 8:22), which requires the physical “laws” to stay constant. (4 & 5) He accounts for the basic reliability of our senses & memory because He designed us and our sensory organs and thinking minds, and intended that man care for the created order (Genesis 2:5) and charged man with that very task (Genesis 2:15) and also to have dominion (under God) over the earth (Genesis 1:28).
All of those things are essential for rationality of any kind to be possible, yet none of them make sense in a Godless perspective of reality. (1) The atheist/agnostic has no way to account for the existence of immaterial universals like the laws of logic, let alone the idea that they don’t (and won’t) change suddenly at any moment. (2) Nor can the secularist account for moral values that are valid and binding on everyone, everywhere, at all times. The best the secular world can say is each culture (or the world) decides what’s right and wrong, which could actually justify pedophilia should society (or the world) decide to allow it. (3) The secular approach to reality can’t account for the constancy of the laws of physics either, nor can he justify the assumption that they’ll be the same tomorrow as they are today. (4 & 5) The basic reliability of our senses and memory can’t be accounted for by a secular view either. What we perceive with our senses and what we remember could just be an illusion brought on as a side effect of an evolutionary mechanism that happened to have survival value in the past.
Other religions won’t help either. The closest match to the biblical God from another religion is Allah of Islam, but Allah has no attributes to speak of. Muslims hold to the doctrine of Tanzih, which maintains that nothing about Allah’s nature can be know by man; only his will can be known. Thus Allah cannot account for the preconditions of intelligibility. One could arbitrarily posit a hypothetical god that has the biblical God’s attributes, but there’s no revelation from that god to mankind, so they couldn’t possibly know about him. And if they don’t know that that god exists, they cannot appeal to him as the basis for their knowledge.
Three quick additional points to ponder: reality reflects the Trinity, not a unitarian god.
Three aspects to God: Father, Son, Holy Spirit.
Three dimensions to the physical world: height, width, depth.
Three aspects to time: past, present, future
Thus non-Christian worldviews provide no basis for knowing (much less proving) anything at all.
In summary, (1) A God who has the biblical God’s attributes would have to exist in order for the preconditions of intelligibility to exist. That rules out all secular perspectives of reality. (2) We couldn’t know about those precious preconditions without knowledge of that God’s existence (since only He can account for them). That rules out all other religious perspectives. (3) We couldn’t know about this God’s existence unless He has revealed Himself to Mankind. That rules out all deistic and general theistic perspectives. In other words, the triune God of the Bible is proven by the impossibility of the contrary: if He did not exist and reveal Himself to mankind, we couldn’t know anything. Yet we clearly do know things and can’t avoid having knowledge (to claim we don’t know anything for sure is itself a knowledge claim). Therefore, the biblical God exists.
What this means for your future:
Let me ask you a few questions. Have you ever told a lie? Have you ever stolen something (regardless of the value)? Looked with lust (i.e., committed adultery of the heart as Jesus put it, Matthew 5:28)? Ever taken God’s name in vain? We’ve all broken the Ten Commandments. Deep down you know you’ve broken many (if not all) of them. If you were to die today and God were to judge you by His righteous standard, the Ten Commandments, would you be innocent or guilty? Jesus said that all liars will have their place in the lake of fire (Revelation 21:8), and the apostle Paul said that no thief or adulterer will enter the Kingdom of God (1 Corinthians 6:9-10). So if you were to die right now, would you go to heaven or hell? Be honest. A good and just Judge would have to carry out justice, or else that Judge would be corrupt Himself. You would go to hell. We all would because of our own choices. That’s the bad news. Would you like to know the good news? God loves you so much that He sent His one and only Son to suffer and die on the cross in your place. When Christ was on the cross, He took the sins of the whole world upon Himself. He took your punishment so that you wouldn’t have to. John 3:16 says “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” You broke the law, and Jesus paid your fine. Then Jesus rose from the dead on the third day, defeating death. In other words, God, in His rich love and mercy, has offered you a pardon for your crimes against Him. If you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, repent and forsake all sins, and trust in Christ alone for salvation, then Christ’s death on the cross will count as your punishment, and God will forgive you and grant you everlasting life. He’ll change you from the inside out, and make you a whole new person in Christ. Please listen to your conscience and get right with God today, because tomorrow is never guaranteed, and eternity is a long time to spend in hell. Get right with God and read the Bible everyday (taking it in context), and obey what you read.
