Good

“The moral argument for the existence of God implies the existence of a Being that is the embodiment of the ultimate Good, which is the source of the objective moral values we experience in the world.”
-William Lane Craig Reasonable Faith (104)

 

“If atheism is true, it becomes impossible to condemn war, oppression or crime as evil. Nor can one praise brotherhood, equality or love as good. It doesn’t matter what you do- for there is no right and wrong; all things are permitted.”
-William Lane Craig Reasonable Faith (175)

“I say to the LORD, “You are my Lord; I have no good apart from you.”
-Psalm 16:2 ESV

“And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call me good? No one is good except God alone.”
-Mark 10:18 ESV


There’s a compass buried deep inside my heart
Telling me wrong from right
And I pray that I will not stop listening
‘Cause even in my childhood fairytales, stories and nursey rhymes
I knew the good guys should be winning

Where does all the good come from?
Why do we wish for a happy ending?
Do you long for good to overcome?
‘Cause if there is good, don’t you think there is God?
If there is good, don’t you think there is God?

So I’ll struggle against the wrong in this world
‘Cause I got a fire in me
And I simply cannot turn and run
Coincidence just never will explain how everybody knows
That there is good to live and fight for

Where does all the good come from?
Why do we wish for a happy ending?
Do you long for good to overcome?
‘Cause if there is good, don’t you think there is God?
If there is good, don’t you think there is God?

If you’re alive and on this earth
Then you’ve got value, you’ve got worth
And ain’t that good? So good
‘Cause if nothing really matter
Tell me why does it feel like it should?
‘Cause you know it should

Where does all the good come from?
Why do we wish for a happy ending?
Do you long for good to overcome?
‘Cause if there is good, don’t you think there is God?
If there is good, don’t you think there is God?
If there is good, don’t you think there is God?
If there is good, don’t you think there is God?
