The great C. S. Lewis wrote, what many consider to be his magnum opus, Mere Christianity. “Mere Christianity” refers to the fundamental elements of the Christian faith. It is those things which are absolutely necessary to make Christianity what it is–Christianity. Lewis writes, “My argument against God was that the universe seemed so cruel and unjust. Just how had I got this idea of just and unjust? A man does not call a line crooked unless he has some idea of a straight line. What was I comparing this universe with when I called it unjust? … Thus in the very act of trying to prove that God did not exist—in other words, that the whole of reality was senseless—I found I was forced to assume that one part of reality—namely my idea of justice—was full of sense. Consequently atheism turns out to be too simple. If the whole universe has no meaning, we should never have found out that it has no meaning” (Mere Christianity, 45-46)
The Christian worldview is built upon the quintessential belief in God’s existence. The fundamentals of God’s existence will be covered in this first of nine messages in the series “Mere Christianity: The Fundamentals of the Christian Religion.” Join Pastor Brian Chilton in this first message from Deuteronomy 6:4-8 and Isaiah 44:6-8, delivered at Huntsville Baptist Church. The fundamentals of God’s existence are:
- The Fundamental of God’s EXCLUSIVITY (Deuteronomy 6:4 and Isaiah 44:6).
- The Fundamental of God’s ETERNALITY (Isaiah 44:6b).
- The Fundamental of God’s TRANSCENDENCE (Isaiah 44:7).
- The Fundamental of God’s IMMANENCE (Deuteronomy 6:5-6).
- The Fundamental of God’s CREATION (Isaiah 44:8; Hebrews 1:3).
