I believe that the moral argument is one of the strongest arguments for the existence of God in today’s world. Why? Because part of being human is having an inner sense of right and wrong; it is a universal experience.
The moral argument for the existence of God is not that believing in God is necessary in order to be moral. The moral argument is that if God does not exist, there is no objective foundation for morality.
As William Lane Craig’s short video explains (if you’d like to watch the short video, you can find it below):
“If God does not exist, objective moral values do not exist. Here’s why: Without some objective reference point, we have no way of saying if something is really up or down. If there is no God, there is no objective reference point. All we are left with is one person’s viewpoint, which is no more valid than someone else’s viewpoint.”
The moral argument for the existence of God is not proof that God exists (let alone the Christian God), but it is more evidence that the Christian worldview is consistent with the reality of our human experience.
Because Jesus satisfies the mind and the heart.
