Is Everything Permissible Without God?

- Permitted, allowed
-This devotion was inspired from one of the points in the movie 'God's Not Dead.'

  If God doesn't exist than why do we have laws?

Many people who aren't Christians claim that they don't need God to be a "good person", however I would like to pose the question; If there is no God, than what is the point of doing good? If God doesn't exist, than everything is permissible. If there is not a God than there wouldn't be laws, or punishment for example prison.
You may say though that committing murder is a horrible thing to do, and it is.. but who is the judge of that? Who decided that killing people,committing murder, and robbing a bank was a bad thing. If God isn't real than we would have no reason to follow rules. If when we all die we are all going no where, than what would be the point?
Many politicians and other important people in this nation are trying their hardest to take God out of this country however this nation was built off the teachings of God. The pledge of allegiance to this country says "...One nation under God...". The founders of this country made laws because they wanted to get rid of wrong doing because God doesn't want us killing, hurting, or stealing from each other.
Think back to the very beginning. Someone had to have set a rule saying that doing such things as murder was wrong, or else us humans wouldn't know better. If God doesn't exist than who decided this?
You can try your hardest to take God out of the world but there is no point because everything you do, everything you follow is because of God.
 The reason most of us try to respect those in authority is because in Colossians 3:20 the bible says "Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord."
The reason we don't commit murder is because in  Exodus 20:13 the bible says "You shall not kill."
The reason gay marriage was not allowed up to this point is because the bible says to men in Leviticus 18:22 "Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a women, this is an abomination."
If God doesn't exist why do we follow so many rules? Comment below and tell me your thoughts. I would love to answer any questions or reply to any thoughts. You may always email me as well.
