Can You Find God by Reason? Intellect?
The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they have done abominable works. There is none who does good. 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’s no God. He does not know there’s no God. He has never proven there’s no God. He accepts by faith there is no God.
You see, 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.
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.
You cannot prove or disprove the existence of God. The evidence is clear—it’s all around you in His creation. Believe in God. He is the God who is presented, not proven.
