A desperately confused, hurting, deceived, Atheist defines our Creator-God as a “concept.” Atheist Mark stated: “Can something exist in the physical world without empirical evidence? Yes, and God is an example. When I say God I mean a concept, a thought, or idea–not a supernatural being.”
A response to the Atheist…
God demonstrates His reality through…
1) What He has created supernaturally and placed before our eyes.
2) The incarnation of God in Time via the life of Jesus Christ-Yeshua Who walked among us for 33.5-yrs.
3) The incredible collection of works via the Holy Spirit i.e. the Holy Scriptures spanning 1400-1600-yrs, 3-languages, 3-Continents, 40-writers inspired by God the Holy Spirit to pen on parchment the mind of God explaining origin-meaning of life-morality-our destiny in Time and Eternity.
God demonstrates His reality through His creation and through the life of Jesus Christ and through His written word. You need not “imagine” a “concept” of God but simply acknowledge a reality; that is, our Universe, our complex genome, demands design and a Designer and said Designer has given you the most profound, best-selling, most popular writings to have ever existed i.e. the Holy Scriptures.
The Scriptures are our Creator’s love letter to YOU defining, articulating His Covenant of Grace where He has given His all to provide you, a sinner (Romans 3:23), a pardon from your sin and commute your sentence of death in Hell to life in Eternity – IF – you will simply humble yourself, acknowledge your sin and sincerely repent and believe in your heart, confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is God who died to pay your sin debt and that He was resurrected for your justification leading to Eternal Life (Romans 10:9-10).
No imagination or idealistic concept of a “god” is necessitated as our Creator has provided you supernatural examples of His power and dominion via what He has made and placed before your eyes; Our Creator, in is unfathomable love, mercy, grace, exited the Realm of Eternity and entered Time in the flesh some 2019-yrs ago (Philippians 2:8) and walked among us for 33.5-yrs and defined God through the Gospel (John 14:9) and this Gospel message has been meticulously recorded for you in the Holy Scriptures.
When you stand before Jesus Christ in either the Bema-Seat Judgment of the faithful (2 Corinthians 5:10; Romans 14:10) or the Judgment of the Condemned (Revelation 20:11-15), no one will be afforded an excuse that they did not know or could not know because God has clearly introduced Himself to mankind via Nature, via Jesus Christ, via the Scriptures (2 Corinthians 5:21; Romans 1:18-32). God has meticulously written His moral law upon our heart at conception (Romans 2:15) and He has placed irrefutable knowledge concerning Himself in Nature, in Jesus, in the Scriptures; therefore, the unbeliever is “without excuse” (Romans 1:18-32).
