"Rationalizing" A Life Without God
by Robert Flores
Senses are not the most reliable things on earth to prove that God exists: if a blind person (like the athiest, Helen Keller) doesn’t believe in the moon, does that mean that the moon doesn’t exist? Or, if a deaf person doesn’t believe in music, does that mean music doesn’t exist? The fact is, is that people’s senses or opinion doesn’t matter when it comes to truth. Truth isn’t based on a personal preference, it’s based on fact. Or else we’d have 6 billion versions of truth in this world. If you choose to not believe that food will not fill your stomach, it doesn’t take away the fact that you are still hungry. If you choose not to believe in gravity, it doesn’t make you any less susceptible to falling in the mud. Just because you “rationalize” God out of your mind, it doesn’t mean that God doesn’t exist. God exists whether you choose to accept that fact or not! It’s beyond your control or influence. A fact is a fact whether 6 billion people want to believe it or not. You know, God wouldn’t even care if there was a unanimous vote on this earth, denying his existence! It would just be 6 billion people’s opinionnot fact.
Being God necessitates that He calls the shots, makes the rules and is uncompromising. If you were God, you’d do no less. But you’re not God. You’re human just like the rest of us. If I were you, I’d quit “rationalizing” God out of existence and repent of your rebellion. You will meet God someday either as your Judge or your Savior. It’s your choice. Let me ask you, What are you gonna say to God in that day? “Oh, uh, hi, God… uh, you know, uh, you’re not supposed to be here.” And what do you suppose He will say to you? The answer is found in Matthew 25: 12, 13: “But he answered and said, Assuredly I say to you, ‘I do not know you. Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.’”
God won’t twist your arm to make you come to Him. He simply knocks at your heart’s door: “Behold , I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.”Revelation 3:20
