If there’s one constant question atheists always ask when discussing the existence of God is…WHERE IS THE EVIDENCE?
It’s always been that way. Notice what the Apostle Paul stated…
Corinthians 1:20-23 (NKJV)
20 Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the [a]disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? 21 For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe. 22 For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom; 23 but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a [b]stumbling block and to the [c]Greeks foolishness,
The Greeks seek after WISDOM. The Greeks of that day wanted PROOF and without that proof they considered the message of the Gospel to be FOOLISHNESS.
The same is true today. Unbelievers consider belief in God foolishness. They say there is no evidence that He lives, even though the bible reminds us that evidence that He lives is all around us…
Romans 1:20 (NKJV)
20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and [a]Godhead, so that they are without excuse,
But, their response to this is where is your evidence beyond the bible?
However, the greatest evidence that God lives ‘all in our head’.
God is invisible and Yeshua the Messiah represents Him in bodily form…
Colossians 2:8-10 NKJV
8 Beware lest anyone [a]cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. 9 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead [b]bodily; 10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all [c]principality and power.
The bible also asserts…
1 Corinthians 15:45 NLT
45 The Scriptures tell us, “The first man, Adam, became a living person.”[a] But the last Adam—that is, Christ—is a life-giving Spirit.
Life giving (quickening) Spirit.
What makes you alive?
Is it brain activity? There are those in a coma with brain activity but are not conscious.
Is it breathing? There are those who are on a breathing machine but are not conscious.
Is it a beating heart? There are those who are on life support, but have no consciousness.
Is it your body? But, your body is still YOU even when your ‘spirit’, your ‘soul’, ‘your consciousness has left your body.
So LIFE IS CONSCIOUSNESS. LIFE IS AWARENESS. What good is it for you to be alive if you aren’t aware?
But, where is your consciousness? Where is your awareness? Where is your ability to see, think and reason?
Can you see it when it enters your body? Can you see it when it leaves the body? Does it begin in the womb?
No one can remember when they were one week old, so how do we know we weren’t ‘aware’ of what was going on in the womb. Just because you can’t remember it does’t mean you weren’t aware in the womb. And, just because you can’t remember doesn’t mean you weren’t aware at some level before you were born.
The evidence that you are real is not that we can see your body, but that your spirit that’s inside you gives your body (the vehicle for your spirit) life. That’s the evidence that you are you. The fact that you are aware is the evidence of the POWER of your SPIRIT that dwells within your body.
It’s the same for the only Living God. He is a spirit. You can’t see it, hear it, or smell it, but you can only but the evidence of His power…His creation…the natural laws that testify of His essence. Consider this except from my post IF YOU BELIEVE IN SCIENCE, YOU CAN BELIEVE IN GOD (HERE’S A PERFECT EXAMPLE)…
For example: The Law of Conservation of Energy, one of the basic accepted laws of physics…
Energy can neither be created nor destroyed, but only transferred or changed from one form to another.
That being said, please consider this…If you can accept: No one can see energy.
You can accept: No one can see God.
Colossians 1:15 (NKJV)
15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.
If you can accept: Energy wasn’t created.
You can accept: God wasn’t created.
Psalm 90:2 (NKJV)
2 Before the mountains were brought forth,
Or ever You had formed the earth and the world,
Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.
If you can accept: Energy can’t be destroyed.
You can accept: God can’t be destroyed.
Isaiah 40:28 (NKJV)
28 Have you not known?
Have you not heard?
The everlasting God, the Lord,
The Creator of the ends of the earth,
Neither faints nor is weary.
His understanding is unsearchable.If you can accept: Energy is power.
You can accept: God is power.
Revelation 19:6 (NKJV)
6 And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, “Alleluia! For the[a] Lord God Omnipotent reigns!
If you can accept: You can’t see energy…only evidence of its power.
You can accept: You can’t see God…only evidence of His power.
The fact that you can read and comprehend this article, and that you have the free will to accept or reject it is proof that you are alive and aware just like the God of whom your spirit is an offspring…
Acts 17:28 (NKJV)
28 for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring.’
Now, I know that this sounds like foolishness to some of you. But, isn’t that what the God said through the Apostle Paul in the first place?
