This year for us, will see an intensifying of our efforts to increase our knowledge, for the purpose of being more effective in bringing others to Christ. Therefore, for the ensuing weeks, I will use this space to share each week a common rejection of God by unbelievers, and an answer to overcome the objection. I encourage you to use this as your personal study to prepare you for future conversations.
Unbeliever: “It’s foolish to believe in things you cannot see, like this God you speak of.”
Have you ever seen your thoughts? Have you ever seen gravity? Yet you would argue they both exist even though you have never seen either of them. When you see a painting, do you need to see the painter to believe that one exists? Of course not, and God is no different. You can look at nature and see there is a God. When was the last time you looked up at the stars or considered the vastness of the universe? What about your body? Have you stopped to consider how perfectly all the members of your body work together in perfect harmony? How do you think that is? Do you believe it is all because of an unexplainable cosmic cause? You choose to believe there is no God, just as you choose to believe that gravity exists. Belief is a choice and if you look at the facts concerning God, you will either choose to believe in Him, or you will choose not to. Whichever you choose is up to you, but it still doesn’t change the fact that He exists.
The only way they will ever know is if we love them enough to take the time to do so. It only takes a small investment of time to change a life forever.
