Theism: Belief in God

Arguments for the Existence of God

There are several arguments that try to prove God exists. These arguments are:

  1. Universal Belief in the Existence of God.
  2. The Argument from Cause - Cosmological.
  3. The Argument from Design - Teleological.
  4. The Argument from Being - Ontological.
  5. The Moral Argument - Anthropological.
  6. The Argument from Congruity.
  7. The Argument from Scripture.

Universal Belief in the Existence of God states men everywhere believe in the existence of a Supreme Being or beings to whom they are morally responsible and to whom atonement must be made.

The Argument from Cause - Cosmological states man originated from some intelligent Being. Since man did not bring himself into being, there must be a Creator who created him.

The Argument from Design - Teleological states a supervising, intelligent Being designed the world in which we live.

The Argument from Being - Ontological states there must be a never ending and perfect Being.

The Moral Argument - Anthropological states God exists because man is an intelligent and moral creature. Therefore, man must have an intelligent and moral Creator. That Creator is God.

The Argument from Congruity states belief in a self-existent and personal God is in harmony with all facts known about man's mental and moral nature, as well as facts known about the material world.
