God's Existence

Man, God, and the Bible

Romans 3:23
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God

What is wrong with the logical arguments of men which define God differently? Paul's arguments in the first chapter of Romans helps to explain much of this, but in simple terms, man's soul and conscience is defiled by sin.

1 Timothy 4:2
speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron NKJV

Titus 1:15
To the pure all things are pure, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure; but even their mind and conscience are defiled. NKJV

The Bible recognizes the short-comings of men. But, the Bible does not condone this short-coming. Man is responsible for his sin.

Man has been created in the image of God

Genesis 1:26-28
26 Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth." NKJV

This image is tarnished, but a new relationship with God through Jesus Christ restores the image. And, it is important to remember that this image is spiritual and not physical

Ephesians 4:24
24 and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness. NKJV

Colossians 3:10
10 and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him NKJV
