Cold Case Christianity

God's Existence

A Wallet, A Dollar, the Existence of God (Part 2 – The Case for Personal Theism)

An argument for personal theism based on the philosophical truth that the first, uncaused, cause of this caused universe had the ability to “decide”. We take the second step toward Christian Theism by using a wallet and a dollar to illustrate the point. Can an impersonal force account for the sudden appearance of space, time and matter? If the force that caused the universe is also caused, how did this cause come into existence?

Watch Part 1 of this argument: A Wallet, A Dollar, the Existence of God (Part 1 – The Case For Theism)

This book employs a simple crime scene strategy to investigate eight pieces of evidence in the universe to determine the most reasonable explanation. The book is accompanied by an eight-session God’s Crime Scene DVD Set (and Participant’s Guide) to help individuals or small groups examine the evidence and make the case.
