Atheist mocks “belief” in God. Okay, let’s discuss that…
Atheist, Mark D, stated: “Can belief give rise to God’s existence? Yes, because God is a concept and concepts are thought based. When someone says that they believe in God, what they really mean is that they believe in the concept that they have formed in their mind. The existence of God outside of the mind is not something that can be determined by human intellect. The God that Christians, Jews, and Muslims worship is invented. It is a product of human thought that has no basis in fact and no confirming empirical evidence. What they worship is not God, but themselves. What say you?”
Response to the Atheist…
Once again, Mark is a voice for Satan. The Christian has not invented God but the Christian has observed the supernatural evidence provided us by the Moon, Stars, Sun, the complex human genome and logically, reasonably, empirically, inferred/deduced by said evidence that design is in play; therefore, a Designer is mandated (Romans 1:18-32).
An honest person will pursue the evidence in Nature provided them and search for the Name, the identity, of the One who designed our supernatural Universe and brought life into existence. Science and historical science, evolution, have NOT a clue concerning origin of matter and life. The Vedas is laughable; the Quran is plagiarized from the Jewish Torah by the false prophet Muhammad; the Egyptian Gods and Greek mythology, well, these are simply a very bad story; therefore, when one finally opens the Holy Bible, they find the Signature of our Creator in Chapter-one-page-one and that same Creator is confirmed over-and-over-again throughout the Covenant of Law and the Covenant of Grace.
When one seeks-out the Truth and possesses a contrite, humble, honest, heart, they will discover that Christianity is the only coherent worldview with corresponding truth that defines origin-meaning-morality-destiny and directly answers with logical consistency, empirical adequacy, experiential relevance. When one truly trusts in Jesus Christ as Lord, the mysteries of the Universe, Life, Time, Eternity, are answered. There is ONE God and ONE Mediator for sin, Jesus Christ.
“There are honest doubters and dishonest doubters. An honest doubter is willing to search out the truth and live by the results; a dishonest doubter doesn’t want to know the truth. He can’t find God for the same reason a thief can’t find a policeman.” Adrian Rogers
