Believe in God
“The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God…” - Psalm 14:1
Can a person find God by reasoning? No. We are incapable of proving God. Sometimes an atheist will say to a believer, “Prove there is a God.” That never threatens me. I just smile and say, “Prove there is no God.” Sometimes it’s leveled against Christians as though it’s an accusation: “You just accept by faith there’s a God.” That’s right. And let me tell you what the unbeliever does. He accepts by faith there is no God. He does not know there is no God. He has never proven there is no God. He accepts by faith there is no God.
Some of the finest minds this world has ever known have been given to the gospel of Christ. It’s not a matter of intellect. It’s not a matter of reason. It’s beyond reason and above reason.
All men are believers. I choose to believe in God. The atheist chooses not to believe in God. If a man doesn’t believe in God, it’s because he doesn’t want to believe in God. He has chosen not to believe in God. But make no mistake, we’re all believers.
You don’t prove God, and you don’t disprove God. You believe in God. He is the God who is presented, not proven.
