GOD, EXISTENCE OF

No Proof in Bible

 A University of B.C. philosophy professor, Dr. Peter Remnant, told 1,100 students in a noon-hour speech that “there is no proof in the Bible that God exists.”

 Quite right. The existence of God is taken for granted in the Bible. The Scripture started with these words: “In the beginning God … ” (Gen. 1:1).

“No Good” Cry Old Stuff

 A pastor entered a tavern where a man, wishing to embarrass him, rose and suddenly called out quite loudly, “Es gibt keinen Gott” (“There is no God”). The pastor went to him, calmly laid his hand on his shoulder, and said, “Friend, what you have said is not at all new. The Bible said that more than 2,000 years ago.” The man replied, “I never knew that the Bible made such a statement.” The pastor informed him, “Psalm 14, verse 1, tells us, “The fool says in his heart, there is no God.” But there is a great difference between that fool and you. He was quite modest and said it only in his heart; he didn’t go about yelling it out in taverns.”

Gandhi On Atheism

 Mahatma Gandhi was once approached by an atheist with the request to organize and promote an anti-God society. Gandhi replied, “It amazes me to find an intelligent person who fights against something which he does not at all believe exists.”

 

It Takes No Brains

 Dwight D. Eisenhower said, “It takes no brains to be an atheist. Any stupid person can deny the existence of a supernatural power because man’s physical senses cannot detect it. But there cannot be ignored the mystery of first life … or the marvelous order in which the universe moves about us. All of these evidence the handiwork of a beneficent Deity. For my part, that Deity is the God of the Bible and Christ, His Son.”

Statistical Monstrosity

 Said George Gallup, world-famed statistician, “I could prove God statistically! Take the human body alone. The chance that all the functions of the individual would just happen is a statistical monstrosity!”

The Big Engineer Above

 Thomas Edison said: “No one can study chemistry and see the wonderful way in which certain elements combine with the nicety of the most delicate machine ever invented, and not come to the inevitable conclusion that there is a Big Engineer who is running this universe.”

 

God Is Sued

 George Albrecht, 35, an electrician, filed a $25,000 damage suit against “God and Company,” listing about 30 houses of worship and their clergymen as co-defendants, after he had lost an earlier damage suit against the city and a construction company. Albrecht had sought damages in the early suit for injuries received when a sidewalk collapsed under him during a rainstorm at a construction site. The trial jury ruled the accident as “an act of God,” hence the second suit.

God is Again Sued

 God is in trouble in Santa Rosa, California.

 It all began when folk singer Lou Gottlieb deeded his thirty-one-acre ranch, a controversial hippie haven, to God. The reluctant country recorder finally gave in when Gottlieb showed him a coin on which was engraved, “In God We Trust” and specified, “It’s this one.” As for taxes, said Gottlieb, “For God’s sake, I’ll pay them.” But, he added, it all would be “an interesting problem legally, as a test of the intensity of belief of the authorities around here.”

 A week later, an Oakland secretary hit God with a civil summons for causing a lightning bolt to strike and destroy four homes. The $100,000 damage suit charges God with “careless and negligent” operation of the universe, including the weather. Her attorney said he would try to collect by attaching Gottlieb’s ranch (“property owned by God”) when—and if—the deity fails to show up in court.

 It appears that one way or another God will have his day in court.

God Sues The U. S.

 Donald Glen Sneed of Dallas, Texas, has sued the United States government on behalf of “all God’s children,” naming God as a co-plaintiff. Sneed filed his suit to determine if the U. S. Government is subject to the laws of God. Among things listed by Sneed as violations of God’s laws by the Government, are the use of the environment without permission, minerals, food, clothing, shelter; the destruction of God’s property by pollution; the death of the American Indians during the settling of the West; the deaths of soldiers and people in the war against Vietnam. The Government has 60 days to reply. Whether the suit can ever go to court is debatable because God’s written, as well as verbal, consent must be given for filing the suit in His name.

Epigram On God (Existence of)

     If God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent Him.

—Voltaire

     The world embarrasses me, and I cannot think that this watch exists and has no watchmaker.

—Voltaire

     A heathen philosopher once asked a Christian, “Where is God?” The Christian answered, “Let me first ask you. Where is he not?”

—Arrowsmith

     Astronaut Eugene A. Cernan: “I am convinced of God by the order out in space.”

     The stars in our sky are more numerous than all the souls which have departed this earth since the time of Adam, and their orbits and velocities through the heavens faithfully obey a great code of law. Earth’s scientists can quote and explain this code in great detail—until you ask, “Whence came these laws?”
