The Existance of God
by Stephen Charnock

The existence of God is the foundation of all religion. Moses begins with the Author of creation, before he treats of the promise of redemption. Paul preached God as creator (Acts 17:24) before he preached Christ as mediator...The devil directs his fiercest batteries against those doctrines in the Word, and those graces in the heart, which most exalt God and bring men to the lowest subjection to their Creator...Sin unlinks the dependence between God the Sovereign and man the subject. Sin endeavors to subject God to the wills of men. God is deposed, and man is enthroned; God made a slave, and man a sovereign above Him.
