Attempting to obey God and follow Jesus Christ our Lord

Four Ways God Has Revealed Himself to the World

THINKAPOLOGETICS.COM

The skeptical issue in our culture mostly enters into the religious dialogue in the following way: “In the case of God, who isn’t some material object but a divine being, what kind of evidence should we expect to find? There is a tendency to forget that the Bible stresses that sin can dampen the cognitive faculties that God has given us to find Him. Therefore, sin has damaging consequences on the knowing process (Is. 6:9-10; Zech. 7:11-12; Matt. 13:10-13). Christianity, Judaism, Islam, are all theistic faiths in contrast to pantheism (all is God), polytheism (many gods), and atheism (without God).

The skeptics complaint that God should “prove” Himself to the world in a way that is unmistakable is misguided. In other words, the old saying “If God would just make it so clear to me He is there, I would bow my knee and love Him and follow Him” is…

  2. I am doing well Noel, the cancer is still in remission! You are right, I have been MIA, I don’t know the reason but I find it very difficult to post. It’s as if I am in the off position when it comes to writing. Occasionally I find something I want to write about or repost but it is rare. I find myself studying apologetics more and more! I love you my friend and God bless you!

  3. In response to the last paragraph of your post.. “If God would make it so clear to me He is there… ” Is that not why, it is called “faith” ? Faith, in my opinion, is a belief and as such, belies any need of “proof”. In fact, it is the exact opposite.

  4. Faith does not require belief based on nothing, rather faith is based on trust! Trust itself is not blind but based on evidence, truly there is so much evidence of God that for me it would be impossible not to believe. Have you ever read “I don’t have enough faith to be an atheist”? It’s a free download from Christian Audiobooks, you don’t have to buy anything to join and there is a free download every month! It’s a great book! The book takes you through so much evidence of God’s existence that you really need to have blind faith to disbelieve! God bless you my friend!
