the Bible doesn’t attempt to prove God but recognizes his real existence.  what do we see theologically that could give us clues into his existence.  First, cosmologically we see that nature reveals God’s power and Godhead (Rom.1:18-19).  God is the first cause.  Secondly, teleologically we see a design in his creation.  there is an apparent and clear design in the world (Rom.1:20).  Thirdly, anthropologically we see that human nature reveals a personal God.  man’s intellect must come from a first cause with higher intelligence.  Lastly, ontologically man has an idea of a perfect being.  since a more perfect or greater being cannot be conceived there must be a perfect being that corresponds to the idea.  God is too intelligent to not leave traces of his existence.
