The human mind has the instant ability to perceive things that a red fox may have a little difficulty. It does not take supernatural skill to know that I have a ‘thought for the day.’ I need not supply ‘evidence’ to help you sift through the intentional sarcasm. Enter a past conversation with the purveyors of godlessness.
They ask for ‘proof.’ They ask for ‘evidence’ there is a God, as if their hearts are MY problem. And I say, Enough already! You know there is a God, and you know there are imposters. The Creator of the tree does not compete with the Creator of the sun, moon, or stars. He is all of One. Nature is the greatest evangelist, as the divine imprint is seen from the oceans beneath to the clouds above, and beyond.
This imprint is coded within the mind of man, and any attempt to silence this rather clear voice is immediately rebuked by the conscience. There are no excuses of worth; there is no argument of substance; the paltry cries of ‘I need evidence!’ are dismissed fast and furiously.
And so I ask: WHAT evidence would satisfy a ‘searcher’ that there be One God? Since history is rejected, since the testimony of good men is rejected, since the witness of the stars is rejected, since the exact science of arithmetic is rejected, since the truth of the carpenter’s level is rejected, since the plumb line is rejected, since the life and times of King David is rejected, since the life and times of Solomon is rejected, since the life and times of Daniel, Esther, Mordecai, Herod, Pilate, and Gamaliel are rejected, what could possibly be cited as acceptable ‘evidence’ to a stout heart that God’s word is good, and that He as Creator, can be trusted to supply a true account of His own creation? (Notice I did not even touch on the life and times of Christ, not enough paper)
Out side of life itself, WHAT could possibly suffice?
I’ll tell you what, and I’ll be blunt. Nothing. Not one thing. And to the believer: We know God is good, His word is true, and He can be trusted just as easily to keep the moon in her circuits, as He can to look after the apple of His eye.
To the infidel: Be honest with yourself, and face the screeching music of humanity’s disappointments. God is not on trial. He acts perfectly, all the time. You sitting in judgement of Him is a pathetic display of the unbridled pride in the human heart. The fact that a coyote cannot tie his shoes, and that your neck is stiffer than a giraffe’s, escapes you.
Neither coyote nor giraffe was made in the image of God, and much to your chagrin, they will never evolve to the place where they can build a paper airplane. This fact also escapes you, so you are thus hung by your own intentional blindness. Evidence? Proof? Ha, we got that, it’s called life, but this is not acceptable to you, for you seek not truth, but one more lousy excuse to add to the rusty and useless gripes of history’s proof of a world away from God.
As a bonus thought, you may want to consider how and why you were able to decode the heading in a New York minute. I’ll tell you why…. aw nevermind.
