In this talk, Davenant Teaching Fellow Colin Redemer confronts head-on the prevalent evangelical idea that Scripture alone can tell us about the existence of God and our need for him. On the contrary, as the Apostle Paul and theologians throughout history have argued, nature itself points us toward the existence of a supreme Creator who is at the same time the final end of our existence and our highest happiness. Though we can only dimly discern God by reason, this is a real knowledge, that holds us accountable and provides us a crucial moral starting point.
