Scriptural Context

Believing in God is at the very heart of our existence and affects every aspect of our lives.

  • Isaiah 45:5 (NIV) - I am the Lord, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God.
  • Isaiah 40:28 (NIV) - The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth.
  • Psalm 19:1 (NIV) - The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
  • John 1:14 (NIV) - The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
  • John 3:16 (NIV) - For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

The existence of God and his relationship to us are questions that every person must ask. Christianity is a hopeless delusion if God doesn’t exist.
