MATTER

DEMANDS

AMAKER

Every material effect must have a cause that came

before it [or was simultaneous to it] and is greater

than it. The Universe is a material effect. There-

fore, the Universe must have a cause that came

before it and was greater than it.

LIFE DEMANDS

A LIFE GIVER

In the material Universe, life arises

from previously existing life of

its own kind. Life cannot sponta-

neously generate from non-living

chemicals. Thus, a supernatural,

intelligent Mind must have created

living organisms.

INTELLIGENCE

DEMANDS AN

INTELLIGENT

CREATOR

Anything that possesses intelligence must have been caused

by something intelligent. Organisms such as animals and

humans possess intelligence. Therefore, animals and hu-

mans must have been created by an intelligent Being.

MORALITY

DEMANDS

AMORAL

LAWGIVER

If objective, moral values exist, then

God exists. Objective moral values such

as good and evil, justice and injustice,

do exist. Therefore, God exists.

THE BIBLE’S

SUPERNATURAL

ATTRIBUTES

DEMAND A

SUPERNATURAL

AUTHOR

If anything in the world exhibits

qualities that are supernatural, then

there must be something supernatu-

ral. The Bible exhibits characteristics

such as predictive prophecy that are

supernatural. Therefore, a supernat-

ural Mind must exist, and the Bible

must be the product of that Mind.

THE HISTORICAL,

MIRACLE-WORKING,

RESURRECTED JESUS

DEMANDS A SUPERNAT-

URAL EXPLANATION

If even one person were to perform supernatural

feats, such as raising the dead and fulfilling prophecy,

then a supernatural Being must exist. Jesus Christ

performed supernatural feats impossible to perform

in a purely materialistic world. Therefore, a supernat-

ural Being [God] must exist.

DESIGN

DEMANDS

A DESIGNER

3

.

Anything that exhibits

complex, functional

design demands an

intelligent designer.

The Universe exhibits

complex, functional design. Therefore,

the Universe must have a Designer.
