“God is nowhere”
The only source of an offensive tool in our spiritual life that we have is the word of God. And according to the Scripture
Heb 11:6 “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.“
The word used was “IS’ and not “EXIST”. However, the question that I raised does not mean to undermine God. This is a reality that most critics, who find their comfort in atheism and other forms, and constantly resurrects crafty reasoning. They say that it is absurd to believe in a “God” who only exists in our mind, when in fact you can’t even see Him, and that it’s only an imagination that somebody was up there, and that the word of God was just a product of man’s crafty invention.
Critics will say
“Where is God when You Can’t Even See Him?”
Where is He when you are in your saddest moment?
Why would God chose to be silent during the times that you are shouting for help?”
Admit it or not, some of you have asked these questions in your former days.
And like the quotes above, a little space could mean different thing. But how about when you are asked by critics to defend your faith without using your Bible? Can you still defend your faith, imagining your self as unarmed, with the sword of the Spirit excluded as your tool to answer? How will you prove that God is (or that God exist-as some others’ says’) without using the word of God?
Let me invite you to share your thoughts on this, and let the world, full of unbelief , know that you can stand, even if asked to let down your weapon. What can you say?
(note: I just borrowed the word “exist” to give idea to readers, though I don’t use it pertaining to God. )
