God Is There and He Is Not Silent
The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” (Psalm 14:1)
It has been said that for a human to look around at the world and say to himself, “There is no God,” is like a flea saying to himself, “There is no dog.” We live on this amazing beautiful blue ball that is unlike anything else that has ever been discovered, we look at the amazing creatures in this world, like the Bombardier Beatle, the Bald Eagle or the Blue Whale, the human body with all its complexities and amazing abilities, inside DNA and we see written computer code which provides the instructions for building and sustaining human life, and we think to ourselves, ‘This is all just an accident, a freak of nature. Time plus random change equals all this amazingness.’ “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’” What more evidence could God provide that he is there, and he is not silent? That people refuse to believe in the existence of God is not due to lack of evidence, but pride and arrogance. The Bible tells us that “what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse” (Rom. 1:19-20). Yet many say they will refuse to believe in God unless he reveals himself to them personally and individually. This is like landing on another planet and finding statues, similar to the heads of Easter Island, and saying, “I refuse to believe these are the result of intelligent design unless their creator reveals himself to me.” How foolish.
