Proof in the Paint Is It Reasonable to Believe That God Exists? (First Cause Argument) Goal of This SPG The goal of this Semester Planning Guide is to provide middle school youth with foundational teachings on God, helping them see that it is reasonable to believe that God exists and that, through faith, they can know God and be in a relationship with Him. Goal of This Night The goal of this Edge Night is to help the youth understand how the scientific fact that our universe has a beginning brings us to the conclusion that there must be a God and that our faith helps us understand why God created the universe. Catechism # 30 # 282 - 289 # 295 - 298 Scripture Genesis 1:1 Psalms 104:24 Nehemiah 9:6 Ecclesiastes 3:11 John 1:3 Revelation 4:11 Key Concepts • Significant scientific findings support the theory that our universe has a finite beginning. • Everything that exists has a beginning and something that caused it to exist; using this argument we can logically conclude that there must be something, or someone, who caused the universe to exist — God. • Through faith we can come to conclusions not only about how the universe began, but why the universe exists.
