Questioning the Existence of God

Pharaoh, the king of ancient Egypt, is often d...

A Christian was told by an atheist that no God opened the Red Sea for the Israelites like she had been told. Why? Because there is no God he declared.

To prove it, he went on; I know from intense and extensive research on this that during the ancient time of the Egyptian dynasties it is a scientific fact that the Sea of Reeds was only four inches deep. Totally impossible for your imaginary God to cause a wind to blow all night that parted the so-called deep waters. So you see there is no God and you have been duped he laughed.

The Christian was unmoved. She answered, It is more of a miracle then. That God could drown Pharaoh and his entire army in just four inches of water is incredible! And she began to praise the Lord.

Or the atheist who was talking to his Christian neighbor one day and said to her; There is no God and you know it! Well I know there is she said back to him. They continued this for a while then went back into their respective homes. The atheist thought to himself I will  prove to that Bible thumping,  non-thinking fundie there is no God.

So he hopped in his car and dashed off to the supermarket. He began filling up a cart with tons of vegetables and fruits, breads, cereals,  and a big gallon of milk. Then he tossed in a few steaks and a couple of chickens. He decided to throw in desserts  and soft drinks. Oh yes he thought.. better buy some coffee and tea. After he paid for it all he went home.

Late that night he placed all the goodies he had bought in a large box. Carrying them, he silently sneaked over to the Christian’s porch where he left them next to her front door.

Early next morning, he hurried outside and hid behind some bushes. He knew she would come out for her morning paper. At last she opened the door and immediately saw the box of goodies. She shouted praise the Lord!  Thank you Jesus!

Upon hearing that the atheist popped up out of the bushes laughing. He said God didn’t give you those groceries. I bought them myself! See I told you there is no God. You thought God brought them! but I did!

The Christian shouted even louder saying Praise the Lord! Not only did the Lord answer my prayer for groceries, but he made the devil pay for them! And deliver them to my door! Hallelujah!

All these so-called proofs that the Lord does not exist will never move the true follower of Jesus.

They claim the Bible cannot be trusted that the texts were changed. Scribes changed this word and that word. They added their own thoughts and opinions. How do you know the Bible is true? It is not inerrant. In fact it is full of errors.

They claim that maybe…Peter did not write Peter.  Or perhaps Paul founded his own church. Or Mark was wrong.  And hmm…Matthew does not exist and on it goes. They say that history proves the Bible to be just another book.

Actually the Bible proves itself true daily.

Earthquake Pearl Harbor Payback?

Luke 13:1 There were some present at that very time who told him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. 2 And he answered them, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans, because they suffered in this way? 3 No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish. 4 Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them: do you think that they were worse offenders than all the others who lived in Jerusalem? 5. No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.”

And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed. (Acts 16:26)

Notice in this great earthquake that the prison doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed? God did this. God wants people free not locked in prisons. God wants people free not enslaved in any way.

Some of the Muslim world was celebrating when 9/11 happened seeing it as judgment from Allah on the great Satan..  But Jesus doesn’t see it that way. All the evil that takes place in America daily is proof that something is seriously wrong here in America . Disaster can come to anyone at anytime no person or nation is exempt from suffering and pain.

I’m sure  many have seen how some  tweeters and others online have said the earthquake in Japan is payback for Pearl Harbor.

As if the millions of lives lost and damaged with the horror of what was done to Hiroshima and Nagasaki is nothing to God. That all those souls he died  for was a mistake on God’s part. Seeing God as a fool who delights in causing pain and suffering.  But the truth of the matter is it is man  who does all this evil not God.

I wonder how these people who are mocking Japan’s pain and suffering account for Katrina.  The Gulf Oil Spill? Mine disasters? Who was God avenging then?  9/11?  Tornadoes? Floods?  Hurricanes? Wars and those MIA for years? Was this God’s karma on all those people, many of them Christians.

Disasters regularly hit America and the world square in the face.

Remember the 7.9 earthquake that hit the Bay area on October 17, 1989? A blessing on America? AIDS? God smiled his biggest smile when he sent AIDS to bless us?

Do they think God sent cancer as a blessing to America?  Death and destruction in many forms that suddenly appear out of nowhere to kill and destroy life and property in America. How do these mockers account for them? The fact is it is the result of sin in the universe.

A blessing from God on America? Or is God doing it to avenge someone he likes better?

How about serial killers that have been born, raised, and do all their killing here in America? There are so many one have to google it to find the number and that is just the ones caught.

All the abducted people reported as missing? Blessings or judgments or it just happened? Did God forget these children?

What about those evil people who abduct and rape and murder their victims right here in America? Sent from God to bless America?

According to them all the evil in America is a blessing from God. A big pat on America’s back from God for America being so holy. Disasters are in no way blessings.

Do they think 9/11 was a big surprise blessing from God to put happy faces on all the people who lost loved ones when the planes hit? And a “Don’t worry Be Happy t-shirt on all the dead  of 9/11.

Or what about America being number one in obesity and heart attacks? God is smiling at us?

Maybe  our national debt is what convinces them that America is special and exempt from the judgments of God.  How much America is loved throughout the world? Is this a blessing? Maybe it is our failing economy, unemployment, divorce rate,  poverty, children left behind, our war dead, diabetes, brain tumors, diabetes, leukemia, aneurysms,  anorexia, car wrecks that take thousand of lives yearly, teenage suicide,  alcoholism, divorces, jails, prisons, insane asylums, and cancer being misinterpreted as  bad things when in reality it is all a sign of God’s approval on America.

Big blessings sent by God to put big happy faces on the victims.

Should these folks who mock Japan’s pain and suffering from this earthquake see the drug problems, diseases, obesity, and the wild beasts (are now colonizing our nation)  as blessings from God?

I could go on and on listing the many evils that is destroying this nation but these few are enough to show that God is against SIN not people!

God said in his WORD:

The person who sins will die. A son will not be punished for his father’s sins, and a father will not be punished for his son’s sins. The righteousness of the righteous person will be his own, and the wickedness of the wicked person will be his own. (Ezekiel 18:20)

God only sends judgment on nations who neglect the poor and who mistreat the aliens, and neglect the widows and orphans. Those who reject his Son are the ones who will suffer his judgment.

Earthquakes and wars and famines and disease are here because of sin in the universe from the first time sin was committed.

Sin is a personal thing not a national one unless you happen to be ISRAEL.
