Cosmological Argument for the Existence of God

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard. Their line has gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world.”  – Psalm 19: 1 – 4

The Cosmological Argument is derived from the term “cosmos” meaning “world” in Greek

  • This argument, like all of the Causal Arguments is based on the Law of Cause and Effect
  • For every Effect, there must be a Cause

The Universe is an Effect which requires an adequate Cause

  • And the only sufficient Cause is God

Look at everything in nature as Proof of God’s existence

  • Matter demands a Maker 1
