How Objective Moral Laws and Obligations Point to the Existence of God (Video)

J. Warner Wallace, author of God’s Crime Scene, discusses the nature of the universe and the evidence for God’s existence. Do objective moral laws and obligations exist? If so, what is the best explanation for their existence? Can moral laws and obligations be explained from “inside the room” of the natural universe, or does the best explanation lie “outside the room”?

This law cannot simply be a matter of “shared morality” or “social convention;” it transcends and pre-dates every culture. As we think carefully and identify the transcendent moral laws governing our world, it might also be useful to think carefully about the transcendent author of these laws.
