Why God is Necessary to Sustain the Universe and You Right Now • July 26, 2017 • Frank Turek
In this episode, Frank continues to unpack what the Bible is all about. First, you’ll see one of the most powerful but overlooked arguments for God’s existence and why God is necessary to sustain all things right now. This argument was first developed by Aristotle and then baptized and refined by Thomas Aquinas. After God created the universe and human beings (which He continues to sustain), we decided to rebel. Frank shows you how that rebellion affects all of us to this very day— not just that we are separated from God, but that our nature is still bent toward rebellion. In future episodes, will see what God has done to fix that.
