The more time one spends time on the streets engaging with unbelievers the clearer the bible becomes. Folks cling to these firm convictions that their life, the universe, and events are ungoverned and unguided but then live in a contrary manner. They act as moral, intellectual and compassionate agents while denying the God they know exists. They stretch the boundaries of credulity further by claiming they don’t deny God but find HIm unproven. Given that God says clearly in His word that we have all the evidence we need, Romans 1:18, you have to ask, “what evidence would satisfy you that God exists?”
The Bible says that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, fools despise wisdom and knowledge. We do not live in an arbitrary universe governed by luck. Every turn of the dice is governed by invariant, immaterial and universal laws of physics. We then understand these turns of the dice by applying invariant, immaterial and universal laws of logic. Nature cannot of its own accord create nature, and neither can information produce information from nowhere, for if that were the case there would be no information anywhere, and no universe. It is absurd to imagine that you can have a creation without a creator, and yet, people cling to absurd worldviews; We’ve met them on this blog.
So what’s to be done? Preach the gospel. Jesus Christ did not only come to save souls, he also came to save reason. Our aim as Christians is awaken people’s conscience, and to encourage them to stop suppressing what they know to be true. It’s not even as if they will have an excuse when they die, Romans 1:20. I have yet to hear a coherent explanation from an unbeliever as to where you get objective moral and logical absolutes apart from the God of the universe who created them. Why do people reject what God communicates to them through their intellect and conscience? Well the bible explain: Their throat is an open grave, Romans 3:13, they love their sin and want to remain in it. Sin is powerful, it blinds the intellect and worst of all, hardens the heart.
The heart of the problem is the problem of the human heart. It is a hate crime to allow sinners to go to hell without a warning. If you are a christian, go warn an unbeliever today that it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God, Hebrews 10:31.
