|Ought everyone to believe there is a God?
|Everyone ought to believe there is a God; 1 and it is their great sin and folly who do not. 2
The Baptist Catechism Set to Music
Benjamin Beddome’s Exposition
Are there any that disbelieve the being of a God?
They say in their heart there is no God,
And does this open a door to all immoralities?
They are corrupt, they have done abominable works,
Is the being of God then a necessary article of the christian faith?
He that cometh to God must believe that he
And is it the foundation of all practical religion?
How shall they call on him in whom they have not believed,
Is God’s existence a comfortable thought to the saint?
Verily, there is a God that judgeth in the earth,
And an awful thought to the wicked?
Fear ye not me, saith the Lord,
Did the first man believe there was a God?
For he heard his voice and was afraid,
Did other men in the first ages of the world believe it?
For they called upon his name,
Have not all nations believed it?
They knew God, though they glorified him not as God,
Do holy spirits above believe there is a God?
They rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty,
Do the devils believe it?
The devils believe and tremble,
Do we well then to believe it?
Thou believest that there is one God; thou dost well,
Is ignorance of God a folly?
My people are foolish, they have not known me,
And a shame?
Some have not the knowledge of God, I speak it to your shame,
1 Corinthians 15:34
And a sin?
They have perverted their way, and forgotten the Lord their God,
Is it an inexcusable sin?
They are without excuse,
And a destructive sin?
He shall be driven from light into darkness, this is the place of him that knoweth not God,
