Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

"I Have no Belief, Therefore it Doesn't Exist."

"Can you explain to me how these two ideas can peacefully co-exist? 1. God's moral standards are not the same as man's standards. 2. Man's moral standards were defined and then given to us by God. I've pointed this out before but never received a response. I'd very much like to hear an explanation."

The answer is simple. There is only one "moral standard," and that morality is defined in the Ten Commandments. Anything that falls short of their absolute moral perfection is called "sin" (see 1 John 3:4), and all sin will receive just retribution. To put it in secular terms, all who break God's Law will be punished by the Law (see Romans 2:12).

Here now is a testimony to the stupidity of us as human beings. We think that if we don’t believe in something, it therefore doesn’t exist. Unbelievers say that they don’t believe in gods. That is supposed to encompass the God who created them. God doesn’t exist, because they don’t believe in Him. Hell doesn’t exist, because they don’t believe in it.

If you are an atheist try an experiment. Go outside at midday on a clear day, look at the sun and say, "I see no evidence that suns exist." You will notice that the sun doesn’t go away. An old Chinese proverb says, "He who gazes upon the sun need not debate its brilliance."

The sun exists despite whatever you do or don’t believe about it. It’s intellectually embarrassing to have to explain this, but unbelief or belief doesn’t negate reality.

Creation is the brilliant light that reveals the Creator. His moral standard is revealed in His Law, the Ten Commandments, and those Commandments are affirmed by your God-given conscience. So there you have it--you have before you the offer of life in Jesus Christ through trust in Him, or death and Hell through unbelief (which is rooted in disobedience). See needGod.com for details.
