Proofs for existence of God

Many people question the existence of God the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. Now Genesis 1 says that in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. People can argue this all day long but I will give some practical examples of what has been created by a creator. People do not dispute the fact that a building has a builder. People do not dispute the fact that a watch has a watch-maker. People do not dispute the fact that an automobile has an auto-maker. People do not dispute the fact that clothes have a maker. Now if people do not dispute that all these things have a maker, I wonder why they dispute the fact of God who ultimately is the Creator of us all. I believe the reason that people doubt the existence of God is that they cannot see Him physically. My question for those questions is what about gravity and wind. We cannot see gravity and wind, but we know the effects of both gravity and and wind. If we throw something like a ball we know the effects of wind. If we jump off a ledge we know the effect of gravity. We cannot doubt these facts so I ask again how can people doubt God, because we as Christians know that God is, was, and will always be, He is timeless, He will answer our prayers, so true we may not be able to see Him physically, but we do know that He exists because the Bible which is the inerrant Word of God, which does not contradict itself, and as 2 Timothy 3:16 says: All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.
So from this Scripture, we learn that we can learn about the existence of God, who God is, how He lived, and how we can live for Him. Now if that is not enough the Scriptures also teach in the book of Philippians 2: 9-11
9Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
10that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.

There is so much more proof for the existence of God and I will expand further in the future.

God bless y'all,
Mark Cannon
