The Moral Argument for God’s Existence.

  An atheist might say you can be good without believing in God. However the question isn’t can you be good without believing in God but can you be good without God? Here’s the problem if there’s no God. What basis remains for objective good or bad, right or wrong? If God does not exist objective moral values do not exist. Here’s why. Without some objective reference point we    really have no way of saying something is up or down. Gods nature however provides an objective reference point for moral values. It’s the standard which all action and thoughts are measured. However, if there is no God then there is no objective reference point. All we are left with is one persons view point as opposed to some other persons view point. This makes morality subjective not objective.  It’s like a preference for vanilla ice cream. The preference is in the subject not the object. Therefore it doesn’t apply to other people. In the same way subjective morality applies only to the subject. It’s not va

Is my humility just a facade?

Why is true humility so hard to find? Because it goes against everything we are bombarded with from the day we are born. The world cherishes power, riches, fame, prestige, and beauty. From the time most of us were toddlers, our parents encouraged us to do better then others. Schools use pride and competition to motivate students to surpass others in both academics and athletics. They hold elections for students to vote for who is the most popular. Some schools issue bumper stickers to the parents of honor students so those parents can brag about their children. 

From primary school through college, we are encouraged to pursue careers that will give us prestige, wealth, and power over others. Schools and colleges also spur us to have collective pride— pride in our school, pride in our state, and pride in our country. We’re supposed to think that our school is the best in the state or the nation. Why? Because we go there. Our country is the best country on earth. Why? Because we live in it. If we lived in another country, we would be told that country is the best on earth. 

So from the time we are toddlers, we have been trained to foster pride in ourselves and in everything connected to us. No wonder humility is hard to cultivate! We’ve been programmed for pride, not humility.

So it is little wonder that by the time we reach adulthood we are glutted with pride. Yet Christians imagine that because years ago they said a prayer in which they acknowledged that they were sinners and needed Christ for salvation, that means they have somehow conquered pride. In reality, all that has usually happened is that they’ve embraced a theological position. Their hearts are as full of pride as ever.

Just because you may look the part, this doesn't mean you are a part of the Kingdom of God
