Meet . . . GOD
I hear so many people say "There is no god". They cite "No evidence" for his existance, therefore conclude He does not exist. This leads to all sorts of ideas like He's the product of man's imagination, lack of scientific knowledge being the cause of him being invented, and that religion was made up to control the masses.
The thing that puzzles me most, is how adament some people are when they assert their "belief" of God's NON-existance. I have (and still do) called it "arrogance and ignorence"! Perhaps better said the other way round, ignorence and arrogance. Ignorence, because it's so easey to conclude that God "could" (and does) exist outside that person's total spectrum of knowledge. After all none of us know (or ever could know) everything.
Arrogance, because, if you cannot know definitvely, that God indeed does NOT exist, you cannot emphatically, and absolutely declare it. These same people will argue that there are no absolutes. In which case they violate their own standard.
The unbeliever wants (and needs) evidence, so they can have an "object" for their faith. However, due to the nature of the "spiritual", no evidence is available. At least NOT scientific, (nor can there be). Evidence IS available, but it requiers a new perspective. A pradigm shift,
if you will.
My father and mother tell me that my great grandfather was a brilliant horseman. He looked after a rich land barons horses, and was renowned for his skills. How can I possibly prove this? I can't.
Is it true? - - Yes, if my parents are telling the truth.
- - - - - - - -- - No, if they are lying. It's up to me to trust their word. If they have a history of lying about many things, I may be excused for doubting them. Although they might be telling the truth.
Conversly, if I know them well, and they are not liars, I will believe their every word. There is no scientific "proof" that he was (or was not).
God is not scientifically "prove-able", BUT THAT DOES NOT MEAN THERE IS AN ABSENCE OF PROOF. It's just a different type of proof, (or evidence). To start, you will need to listen to others "testimony" of their experience(s) with Him. This will lead you (hopefully) to meeting Him for yourself.
Who are you listening to? Liars, or honest, deceptive or to genuine people. Then there are the deceived. I don't mean that in a nasty way. However, we have all believed falsehoods at one time or another. It's not a criticism, but a reality. Then, the truth is learned, and our deception is unveiled.
There is an easy solution to this dillema. Meet God personally. Don't listen to the scientist. Don't listen to the priest. Meet the "Man" yourself, personally.
If there is NO God, you won't meet anyone. There will be no-one to meet. But, IF He exists, you will have somone to meet. That's simple enough, NO?
He wants to meet with you. He is not a distant God. He's not far away. He is as close as your very breath. He has done all He can to make it possible for you to meet Him, but He won't "gate crash" your world. Without an invitation, He will not come to you. (IE, reveal Himself).
There are countless millions of people who have done that. (Met him personally, I mean). I have met people who were at the end of their tether, cried out to God, and He met them at their point of need. I am a living example of the same thing.
Here's a simple guide (for those who have no clue) to ask Him. "God, I want to meet you. Will you meet with me?" Or even simpler than that, "God, HELP!" All you need is to be serious/genuine. No fooling around!
Here's on promise that He makes.
Joh 6:37 All that the Father gives Me shall come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will in no way cast out.
