Proof Of God – Daily Wisdom
Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge. We are on a daily trek to create a legacy of wisdom, seek out discernment and insights, and boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before. Hello, my friend; this is Gramps. Thanks for coming along on today’s trek as we increase Wisdom and Create a Living Legacy. Proverbs 16:16How much better to get wisdom than gold, and sound judgment than silver! We are on Day 1694 of our Trek, and it’s time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote along with some wise words from Gramps for today’s trek. If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget:
Today’s quote is from Dietrich Bonhoeffer,and it is: A God who let us prove his existence would be an idol.
Proof Of God
Scientifically there is no way to prove that God exists. The opposite is also true; scientifically, there is no way to prove there is no God. We know that over the millennium that science is not always accurate or provable. For example, the most outstanding scientist available a few centuries ago proposed that the earth was flat. Another premise was that the earth was the center of the universe, and the sun rotated around the earth. As we now know, based on more empirical evidence that both of those premises were drastically wrong. Being created as God’s imagers, we cannot empirically prove that God exists; if we could, we would be as great or greater than the creator himself. At that point, God would only be a powerless idol. While we cannot prove the existence of God, there is proof everywhere that He does. Yes, we do have to accept this evidence by faith, but those who do not believe that God exists must by faith believe that everything results from chance and fate. There is more evidence, and it is much easier to have faith that God exists than the belief that He does not. I choose by faith to believe what I find in God’s Word.
They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. Forever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.
