Causation and Does God Exist

QUESTION: How does Causation Answer "Does God Exist"?


There are a number of sound arguments for the Existence of God. When confronted with the question, “Does God Exist,” look to the Argument from Causation.

    The Premises:

    1. Everything that begins to exist has a cause.
    2. The universe began to exist.

    The Conclusion: The universe (initial space, time, matter, and energy) had a cause.

The Argument from Causation

Premise 1 of the Argument from Causation is true for the following reasons: (i) By definition, “nothing” cannot do anything; (ii) we never experience something coming from nothing; and (iii) every instance of change requires a cause, and something coming from nothing would be an instance of change.

Premise 2 of the Argument from Causation is true for the following reasons: (i) An infinite number of quantitative events faces logical impossibility; (ii) an eternal universe would have reached maximum entropy already; and (iii) scientific observations have established that the universe began to exist.

The Conclusion requires the cause of the universe to be a “mindful” and “aware” cause. A non-mindful/non-aware perpetual state of being could never change from that eternal state apart from a volitional source. In addition, the order and complexity of the effect points to a mindful and aware cause.

WHAT DO YOU THINK? - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
