The Kalam Argument for the Existence of God (Part 2) (The Reasons to Believe #51) - Ministry Videos
Released: July 24, 2014 By: Daniel Whyte III
Our Reasons to Believe Scripture passage for today is Colossians 4:5-6. It reads, "Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time. Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man."
Our Reasons to Believe quote for today is from William Lane Craig. He said, "The Christian faith does not call for us to put our minds on the shelf, to fly in the face of common sense and history, or to make a leap of faith into the dark. The rational person, fully apprised of the evidence, can confidently believe."
Our Reason to Believe powerpoint today is titled "The Kalam Argument for the Existence of God"( part 2) from "The Handbook of Christian Apologetics" by Peter Kreeft and Ronald K. Tacelli:
Christians believe they are going to live forever with God. So they believe the future will be endless. How come the past cannot also be endless?
The question really answers itself. Christians believe that their life with God will never end. That means it will never form an actually completed infinite series. In more technical language: an endless future is potentially --- but never actually --- infinite. This means that although the future will never cease to expand and increase, still its actual extent will always be finite. But that can only be true if all of created reality had a beginning.
How do we know that the cause of the universe still exists?
