The Rationale of God

By Rev. Ernest O'Neill

Last Sunday we talked about the existence of God. Probably none of us here would question that there is a God. We all see the reasonableness of that verse: Romans 1:20 if you want to glance at it. It's Romans chapter 1:20: "Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse."

Most of you can see the rationale of that. Ever since the creation of the world, God's invisible nature, His eternal power and deity have been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. You look at the sky, it had to come from somewhere, and you look at the flowers, they had to come from somewhere. Even if you believe creation was by an evolutionary process rather than instantaneous, you still have to admit that somebody had to program the evolutionary process, if that's the way it came about. So I think few of us, except an extreme philosophical skeptic, would question that there has to be a God. That's the only explanation for all that we see around us. There has to be some intelligent mind that is at least as personable as you and I are. In order to make persons like us He must be as personable as we are.
