Existential Issues: William Craig mentioned that even Russel admitted that moral values can never be based on our personal taste and our decisions and he further said, "The point is that if there is no God, then objective right and wrong cannot exist" (Craig). I agree with him because God guides us to the path that leads to success and betterment of many people including ourselves. If we do not have faith in God then there's nothing that could go right since there would be no purpose and no fear of punishment or greed and passion for the reward that can make us follow what's right and wrong in life. “'If life ends at the grave, then we have no ultimate purpose for living'' (Craig).
