Have you ever wondered about life, or searched for some kind of purpose and came up wanting? Do you have questions that aren’t getting answered?
This link is a good place to start: http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CGcQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Ffiles.tyndale.com%2Fthpdata%2FFirstChapters%2F978-1-4143-2627-6.pdf&ei=LtvKT—RD-WA6QHcmbj1Dw&usg=AFQjCNFNWftBDqDGF3KEKfzgWeWzPHsIgQ&sig2=Tz2GeohIAN_XvJ8utLHK_w
Does God exist?
You’re eventually going to have to answer that question. Does He, objectively, exist? He can’t just exist for some people— can’t just be in their minds, or something that “works for them.” If that’s true, than God doesn’t exist at all; He is just a figment of peoples’ imaginations, a crutch to make them feel good.
If you’ve convinced yourself God doesn’t exist, how do you know for sure He doesn’t? If God doesn’t exist, why are you having these questions, these longings? Why do you hope, deep down inside, that there is something more? Or fervently hope there isn’t, and fear that there is? Why do you know that there is injustice in the world, that when someone murders 6 million people, it’s wrong? Or why do people rejoice when the “good guys” win?
Nobody really talks openly about these questions in our society today. I think most people are afraid to admit that they have doubts. Doubting is a scary thing. We exalt surety, scientific knowledge, certainty, the eventual human ability to know everything. So when we encounter a question we can’t answer, we freeze.
But inside, almost everyone is wondering just the same things that you do.
You’re not alone that way.
“This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him.
This is the crisis we’re in: God-light streamed into the world, but men and women everywhere ran for the darkness. They went for the darkness because they were not really interested in pleasing God. Everyone who makes a practice of doing evil, addicted to denial and illusion, hates God-light and won’t come near it, fearing a painful exposure. But anyone working and living in truth and reality welcomes God-light so the work can be seen for the God-work it is.” -John 3:16-21, the Message
But how can I know God is real? And what’s more, how can I know that God is who Christians say He is, and not Buddha or Allah or Apollo or Zeus? How can I know that God is Jesus Christ? If you’re really wondering, check this out: http://www.angelfire.com/sc3/myredeemer/Evidencep17.html
