The argument for God's existence from the fact of a moral nature in human beings. Given the instinctive human awareness that some actions are good and others wrong, and the sense of peace when one does what is considered good but guilt when one does wrong, it is reasonable to conclude that there must be a God who ultimately inspires these moral sentiments because he is leading the human race to a destiny that must be gained by living a morally good life.
