Reason & Argumentation: Argument from Cosmology

Today, we’re talking about the tools, or arguments, of apologetics. There are many good arguments for our belief in God. One of those is the cosmological argument. Now you might be wondering, “Carl, what does COSMOLOGICAL mean? That seems like a pretty big word!”

Well, COSMOLOGICAL has to do with the COMOS, or UNIVERSE. The cosmological argument says that the best way to account for the universe that we see around us is that God created it. If there was no God, then there was no way for the universe to come into being. In other words, NOTHING can’t produce SOMETHING.

The Bible assumes the existence of God when Genesis begins, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” Everything had to be made, and that Maker was God.

At that point, some skeptics might ask, “Well, then, if everything had to be made, then who made God?” That’s a question we’ll have to address another time. Until then, find more apologetic resources at Stay bold!
