“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 unbelieve…r does. He accepts by faith there is no God. The Bible says that every person knows there is a God because God has made himself known to every person throughout history through creation (Romans 1:18-20). The unbeleiver chooses to suppress or ultimately exchange what they know to be true for a lie. We all choose what we will beleive about God. Every other thing we beleive flows from what we choose to beleive about God. Every choice we make in life and who we ultimately become flows fromthe choice we make to beleive in God or suppress what we know to be true and exchange it for something less (Romans 1:18-32). It doesn’t matter is a person is Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Athiest or Agnostic. Everything the person beleives flows from the fundamental decision the make about who God is. the unbeleiver know there is a God whether he admits it or not. He has never proven there is no God. He accepts by faith there is no God based on suppression of truth. That’s why they get so angry when truth is brought out. Every amount of energy they have is trying to suppress truth.
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. A person doesn’t prove God, and a person cannot disprove God. Many people believe in God or other chose to suppress what they know to be true for foolishness.
