Transcript

Bobby Conway: Give us the moral argument for the existence of God.

Dr. Craig: There are many versions of moral arguments for God’s existence, Bobby, but the one I like goes like this: Premise one—if God does not exist, then objective moral values and duties do not exist. That is to say, if there is no God, then everything becomes relative; everything is permitted. Premise two—objective moral values and duties do exist. We sense that certain things really are good or evil, right or wrong. And from that it follows logically and inescapably that three—therefore, God exists. So, I think on the basis of these two very intuitive premises we have good grounds for affirming morally that God exists.
