Choice And Consequences

The Bible does not present any proof for the existence of God. It simply declares that God exists and that only a fool denies that fact.

The verse, “The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God’” is perhaps one of the best-known verses in the Bible. However, many people today would say, “The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is a God.’” Atheism has become a religion, and many individuals and countries base their way of life on the denial of any supernatural being.

To prove the existence of God some would ask us to consider “cause and effect” as a reason to believe in a God. Every effect, they argue, demands a cause – so, if there is a creation there had to be a Creator. Hence, God.

Some offer the argument of “being.” Man has the idea that a “perfect being” exists somewhere or “is” some place. Where did that come from? Certainly not from ourselves because we know we are imperfect. So, it had to come from a Perfect Being – whoever it is or wherever He may be. Therefore, God is!

Others claim the moral argument. We have a voice inside of us that says, “Thou shalt” and at times, “Thou shalt not.” Certainly, these are not man-made, they say, but God-given. So, there must be a “Moral-Ruler” – so, it’s got to be Him - God.

Is it wise to try to prove that “God is” with an argument? We can debate that issue forever.

Why not show the difference Christ makes in our lives by words and deeds? No one can deny our experiences. So, let’s share them and let our faith in God speak on our behalf.

Prayer: Help us, Lord, to live God-honoring lives and show others that You are real by what we do. May our lives speak our faith, not only our words. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Scripture For Today: Only fools say in their hearts, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, and their actions are evil; not one of them does good! Psalm 14:1
