They Are Not Right

They are not right.

The atheist is not right when he says God is too good to be true, too powerful to be possible, too eternal to make sense, too righteous to be fair, too loving to be a Judge, too perfect to be relatable.

The agnostic is not right when he says God is too distant to be known.

The skeptic is not right when he says God is illogical.

God is real. He is all of those things He is accused of not being. He is all of that and more.

They cannot be right.

 

They are not right.

The post-modernist is not right when he argues there is no objective standard and there is no absolute truth.

The free-thinker is not right when he argues we can believe anything we want to believe and that each of us can choose which truth we will follow.

The scientist is not right when he argues that science holds all of the answers for our natural universe and that any exploration outside of those parameters is out of step with reality.

The philosopher is not right when he argues that the mind holds all of the answers, as long as we leave ourselves open to all possibilities, except the possibility of a moral and demanding God.

The psychologist is not right when he argues that we can find all of our answers and discover fulfillment, if we will just look deeply within ourselves and listen to our conscience.

They cannot be right.

 

They are not right.

We know this because we know who God is, what God is, how God is, and when God is.

We know His character, His message, His truth, and His love.

We know that God gives us the answers for life and that hope, truth, love, mercy, grace, redemption, compassion, relationships, brotherly kindness, peace, joy, goodness, faithfulness, and every other good thing comes from Him.

We know our God not only gives us the good things—every good thing—but that He also gives us the bad things to make us good. Chastisement with love. Trials with hope. Temptations with escape. Suffering with comfort.

We know our God gave us His Son, and thereby, acted in the most selfless, humble, and generous way ever experienced by God or man. His sacrifice allowed us  our sanctification.

All of the explanations given over all time for the dismissing of God prove only one thing—God is! God is so great He is unbelievable. God is so generous you cannot ignore Him. He is and He is the rewarder of those who seek Him (Hebrews 11.6).
