There will always be those who think we lack intelligence by believing something we can’t see, but the evidence is everywhere. Take a look at the beauty and majesty of this world. Imagine what it looked like before sin corrupted it. See the craftsmanship of God in the birth of a new child – each finger and toe perfectly designed – each body part having a purpose.
Look at the intelligence of humanity. Our minds didn’t just evolve from some big bang that occurred millions of years ago. God planted the ability to reason and choose into our brains, to separate us from the animals.
Observe the glory of each bit of vegetation – how seeds when nurtured and protected grow into something beautiful and useful. The mathematical design of life is so complex we can’t even begin to understand every facet of it. By not understanding, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.
When we’re troubled by those who don’t share our beliefs, we shouldn’t become angry with them or try to engage them in arguments. That will only lead to is frustration and defeat. If they don’t accept what we believe, nothing we say or do is going to change that. Their minds are already made up.
What we can do is pray for them and care about them. Our prayers should include our love for them and our desire that they someday will understand that God is the only truth that exists in a world of darkness. With that knowledge, they will enjoy life eternal in heaven.
We base our beliefs totally on faith. Faith is believing something that we don’t understand but still know it’s true. It’s a concept that isn’t much known in our world. We need something to back up our reasoning. God doesn’t need explanation. He just is and the evidence of His existence is all around us. We simply need to look for it. It isn’t complicated, and that drives intellectuals crazy.
