Can God be known by the Heavens and nature around us? Can God be known by our own conscience? People say that what seems to be intricacy in nature is due to chance, and the “moral law within,” called conscience has been ascribed to society, and childhood training. But Paul in Romans 1:19–23 clearly affirms that God can be seen in nature, and he clearly refers to conscience in Romans 2:15. Actually, it is an impressive phenomenon that the great majority of people have always believed in some kind of deity. Furthermore, although conscience can be denied, every known human culture has some moral rules. It would seem that natural revelation is well established. That it does not lead people to worship the true God is attributed by Paul to human wickedness (Rom. 1:18).
