Most adult people, and sometimes teens, say that they think about existence, being, and why we are here. And all people have some level of thinking about why evil and bad things happen in life. And most people, at some internal level, have awareness of ‘self’ and of ‘being’ and are aware they have moral conscious (or awareness of right and wrong). And it is thus natural and of necessity to seek for answers to the questions related to these things.
To me, the only answer that completely answers all of these questions is that the God of the Bible, who has revealed himself to us in a propositional revelation in verbalized form, in a historical reference, He must indeed not only be there, but He has spoken. In addition to the written scriptures, we can see the work-of-His hands in what we can see and know of the universe, nature, and life around us.
There is just no other comparable or equivalent explanation for the ‘why and how’ of existence and being that explains what we can see, know, and feel.
We need to know who He is, and what His character is, because His character is the law of the universe. He has told us what His character is, and this becomes our moral law, our moral standard. It is not arbitrary, for it is fixed in God Himself, in what has always been. It is the very opposite of what is relativistic. It is either this, or morals are not morals. They become simply sociological averages or arbitrary standards imposed by society, the state or an elite. It is one or the other.
For me there is one clear answer to being, existence, the moral necessity, and to all of life. It is that the God of the Bible is there and that He has spoken.
