Sermon Quotes

God’s Existence

Augustine of Hippo

He who denies the existence of God, has some reason for wishing that God did not exist.

Henry Blackaby

Perhaps you began to question God’s love or His wisdom. Maybe you were afraid to say that He was wrong, but you sort of said, “God, you deceived me in letting me believe that this was the right thing to do. Why didn’t you stop me?” A whole lot of wrong things can happen if you try to look at God from the middle of circumstances.

Frederick Buechner

It is as impossible for man to demonstrate the existence of God as it would be for even Sherlock Holmes to demonstrate the existence of Arthur Conan Doyle.

 

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

A God who let us prove his existence would be an idol.

 

Bill Gates

I agree with people like Richard Dawkins that mankind felt the need for creation myths. Before we really began to understand disease and the weather and things like that, we sought false explanations for them. Now science has filled in some of the realm – not all – that religion used to fill. But the mystery and the beauty of the world is overwhelmingly amazing, and there’s no scientific explanation of how it came about. To say that it was generated by random numbers, that does seem, you know, sort of an uncharitable view [laughs]. I think it makes sense to believe in God, but exactly what decision in your life you make differently because of it, I don’t know.

Dag Hammarskjöld

God does not die on the day when we cease to believe in a personal deity, but we die on the day when our lives cease to be illumined by the steady radiance, renewed daily, of a wonder the source of which is beyond all reason.

 

 

Immanuel Kant

Reason can never prove the existence of God.

 

 

Timothy Keller

In the Christian view, the ultimate evidence for the existence of God is Jesus Christ. If there is a God, we characters in his play have to hope that he put some information about himself in the play. But Christians believe he did more than give us information. He wrote himself into the play as the main character in history, when Jesus was born in a manger and rose from the dead.

C. S. Lewis

There have been men before now who got so interested in proving the existence of God that they came to care nothing for God Himself.

R. C. Sproul

The main problem with those who deny the existence of God is not intellectual. It is not because of insufficient information, or that God’s manifestation of himself in nature has been obscured. The atheists’ problem is not that they cannot know God, rather it is they do not want to know him. Man’s problem with the existence of God is not an intellectual problem; it is a moral problem.” For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men – Rom. 1:18″

Frederick II

O God, if there is a God, have mercy on my soul, if there is a soul.

 

William Butler Yeats

Some say there is a God, others say there is no God. The truth probably lies somewhere in between.

George Gallup

I could prove God statistically. Take the human body alone—the chances that all the functions of an individual would just happen is a statistical monstrosity.

Theodore Dalrymple

It is not as easy as one might suppose to rid oneself of the notion of God.
