I have heard
many people say they couldn’t possibly believe in God. That it’s too farfetched.
Famous atheist Richard Dawkins once said, “Faith is the great cop-out, the great excuse to evade the need to think and evaluate evidence. Faith is belief in spite of, even perhaps because of, the lack of evidence.”
But do you know that I think Richard Dawkins is actually a man of great faith? I believe that it takes greater faith to believe that all of the universe and its amazing perfection just happened. That the miracles we see all around us are by happenstance. By years of evolutionary change we just appeared. Out of nowhere?
To me, the human body and all it is capable of, the beauty of the world, all that life has to offer- I don’t have enough faith not to believe in a Creator. As I go through life, all of it points me to God.
“Does God exist?” a national TV person asked me. “Yes,” I said. “How do you know?” she insisted. “I talked to Him this morning,” I replied.
I say with the Psalmist, “Know that the Lord Himself is God; it is He who has made us, and not we ourselves. We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.” Amen!
