SteemChurch: If we can't see or hear God, how do we know he exists?

in #steemchurch3 years ago (edited)

Ladies and Gentlemen of the SteemChurch,

'Peace be with you'


The existence of God!

Atheists, agnostics and intellectuals - so caught up in the importance of their own existence, are often quick to deny the existence of God, through one simplistic question -

'If I can't see or hear God, how can He exist?

And with this one question they consider themselves to be superior to 2,000 years of Christian literature.

Let us now examine.


Dare to Trust God.

The idea behind this sermon is derived from this post by @scarletmedia

https://steemit.com/christianity/@scarletmedia/dare-to-trust-god

The introduction:

"Now don't push the term faith at me," a lawyer barked out during a court section recently. "The word is like a red flag. I resent it. I see nothing wrong with 'Prove it to me first, then I'll believe' ".

And subsequently the response of our favourite rodents. Yes our two tiny friends can be annoying at times, then at other times they produce some true pearls of wisdom - in this case:

"We mice feel faith; and hope; and love; and we feel our creator. God is not an entity we can see or hear. If the creator of the Universe was to set foot on Earth - the planet would crumble under the weight. Which is why he must work through other senses and through people. We simple mice get it. Can't understand why the so called 'intelligent' don't. Good post ScarletMedia."


The mice are absolute CORRECT.

We know that God doesn't appear before us as a person. Or as a voice for all to hear. Or as an object to touch.

We have learned through our Christian studies that God is a part of us, with us all the time. And we don't communicate with him through sight, or sound, or touch, or smell, or taste - we communicate through feelings, emotions and prayer.


John 4:24

English Standard Version (ESV)

God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”

Responding to doubters.

In your lives you will come across doubters and they will ask of you the question this Knight shown above. And the best way to respond to them in SirKnight's opinion - put questions back to them. None of which can be answered by reference to the 5 senses.

  1. Do you love your wife and children? (How do you know you do?)

  2. Do you have high hopes for the future? (Can we see this hope?)

  3. Do you have faith in your friends and family? (Prove it!)

Then you can get a little more scientific:

  1. Do you believe in Atoms - proton, neutrons, electrons - how do you know they exist if you can't see them?

  2. If there is no Creator - what came before the Big Bang?

  3. Does 'time' exist? You can't see or hear 'time'.

There would of course be many more questions - let us share them in the comments.


Understanding what God is.

This Knight sees God as an omnipresence (present everywhere) and omniscience (all-knowing), but not an omnipotent (all-powerful) spirit. There is enough evidence in the Bible to say that God cannot (perhaps will not), directly impact upon humanity. More so He does guide our course through indirect influences - such as control over elements and working through people.

Perhaps the mice are right in their theory. If God was to focus all of his power directly on Earth at any given moment, the outcome for the Earth and maybe the rest of the Universe might be catastrophic.


This Knight now wishes to end with one final thought.

If there was an evil that wished to enslave humanity. This force of evil would need to do three things:

  1. Destroy LOVE for others.
  2. Destroy FAITH in others.

Then finally destroy all HOPE.

But to do all of this - the evil must first destroy our love and faith in God.

We must never let this happen.



OUR CRUSADE FOR FREEDOM BEGINS WITH OUR FAITH IN GOD

This Knight sees God as an omnipresence (present everywhere) and omniscience (all-knowing), but not an omnipotent (all-powerful) spirit.

Hello @sirknight, with all due respect, I'd like to point out a few things regarding the above statement.

If the bible refers to God as Omnipotent, why should we say otherwise.
If you truly believe that, "God is a spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth"... You should also believe that He is Omnipotent because that's the Truth.

There is enough evidence in the Bible to say that God cannot (perhaps will not), directly impact upon humanity.

I will like to see those evidences. Well, except you mean physical impartation...

More so He does guide our course through indirect influences - such as control over elements and working through people.

Does this not prove Gods Omnipotence?

A good example: He owns and controls the air we breathe. With a snap of His fingers, He can seize this air and we will cease to exist. That's a direct impact!

My God is Omnipotent

For further understanding of the word OMNIPOTENT. Here is a screenshot of the meaning of the word:

Now, compare it with whom you serve.

Have a blessed week

Thank you for the challenge scarletmedia.

This Knight believes that there is a level of semantics caught up this comment you have made.

Compared to you and me - God is omnipotent. However, if God is truly omnipotent explain:

  1. Famine.
  2. Disease and pestilence.
  3. Droughts and floods.
  4. Cyclones and other natural disasters.
  5. Starvation.
  6. Torture and slavery.
  7. Rape, murder, child molestation.
  8. Central banking.
  9. Accidents.

Surely if God had unlimited power - there would be none of these things.

Let's take it a step further - if God wanted the Israelite's freed from slavery why didn't he simply pick them up and move them out? Why work through Moses?

So this Knight stands by his comment - God either cannot involve himself directly; or, he chooses not. Either way this makes SirKnight happy. For either way humanity has choice, freewill and responsibility.

(Now return to original post)

I am... SirKnight.

Compared to you and me - God is omnipotent. However, if God is truly omnipotent explain:

  1. Famine.
  2. Disease and pestilence.
  3. Drought and floods.
  4. Cyclones and other natural disasters.
  5. Starvation.
  6. Torture and slavery.
  7. Rape, murder, child molestation.
  8. Central banking.
  9. Accidents.

From my little understanding, I think the simplest explanation to this is freewill.
The question asked resembles, ''Why didn't GOD destroy Satan?
God is the root of all good and Satan is vice versa. God doesn't rule with power, but love..
Before the fall of Lucifer, he accused God of improper leadership, this was a challenge, and no one challenges God. But, God didn't destroy Satan, Why?

  1. Because He rules with love and not power, If He destroyed Satan, it would instill fear in the angels and they would've no longer served Him with love, but with fear. God doesn't want this.
  2. Because God has to prove that His leadership is the only good, and that of Satan's is worthless. And since Satan thinks God's leadership is poor, he is the only candidate to prove it. This explains all the listed disasters.

God omnipotence, will still be displayed fully, but with time. And then, the earth will be destroyed, as said by @scarletmedia. The delay is for the our salvation, which is a proof against Satan. This is one reason for our creation.
AJoining God's kingdom is by choice and not by force, and His omnipotence shall manifest, and all created being, with even an atom of evil will be subjected to eternal doom.

Synick

wow... i just love your comment... i dont have much to add...

truth is, Satan is vanquished, and God is forever victorious

if we can believe that, then all sufferings make sense all the same...

BLESSINGS!

Thanks for taking your time to read those series of comments.

The bible teaches that bad corrupts good, but let's look at the bright side. At the end of this world, good will overcome bad and it won't have any power to corrupt good again. because we will be fully trans figured.

LOVE........ BLESSINGS

SyNick

Surely if God had unlimited power - there would be none of these things.
Nice list of arguments that God does not exist. If you think these things prove God is not Omnipotent, I suggest you look to answer these questions:
Why did God give man freewill?
Why did God provide the temptation that resulted in the original sin? Did he not see this coming?
I believe my Omnipotent and loving God did not create a pet dog or an ant farm for his amusement. He created a complete environment where we could grow and learn to commune with our creator. This our place to learn the pain and sorrow of not being with Him and the joy and rewards of following His word. We are not capable of understanding why all the things we perceive as bad happen, but we must learn to appreciate the lessons and gifts He graciously gives us. Especially the gift of forgiveness through the sacrifice of His son, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Proof of a Love that cannot be exceeded.
God be with you.

God is All-knowing sir. Let's flashback to the beginning of time when God made man. He made all things good for man including his habitation...until man sinned. It is the result of the fall of man that all these things; problems and disasters occur on a daily all over the world. We can only pray, have faith and believe that God's got us no matter the situation or circumstance we find ourselves. It is only through faith in Him that we can have steadfast LOVE and be safe from danger.

You and I are both alive today because we love Him and He loves us. So we keep up the faith.

Thanks a lot @sirknight. You are a man full of knowledge and wisdom. I am very happy to have crossed paths with you today through my blog. May God bless you!

@scarletmedia

#Followed!

wow... well ive just lost a bit of love towards you, dear brother...

God IS OMNIPOTENT, and he is also PURE LOVE

he choses not to do some things, and to do others

we are nothing to debate his SOVEREIGN DECISIONS

in fact, it is suffering that makes people humble, an undeniable prerequisite to meet him...

HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN?

People say I will believe it when we see it. The Bible teaches us we must believe first then we see. Every single person at one time had the ability to believe, because God gives each one the measure of faith and He sets eternity in our hearts. I asked a room of people p, perhaps 100 or so, this question. How many people believe God raised Jesus from the dead. Nobody hesitated, every hand went up. Everyone in the room believed Jesus was raised from the dead. This is amazing! Nobody saw it, but everyone believed it. Because this is required for us to be saved. We have to believe God raised Jesus from the dead and confess Him as Lord. Romans 10:9. The free gift of grace to be saved.
The Bible say the fool says in his heart there is no God. Literally it mean a fool says there is no God for me. That God thing is good for you, but not for me.
They decided one day not to believe!
One thing that is amazing you were speaking of the make up of atoms. There is something invisible holding everything together and scientists cannot find it, see it or measure it, but they know it has to be there. The atheist scientist named this thing “The God Particle”
We know what or Who holds this stuff together by the scriptures.
Heb 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power.

God bless!

This I believe too @sirknight. God is the beginning and the end, the author and the finisher of our faith. The Lilly of the valley, the lion of the tribe of Judah.

Only fools says in their heart there’s no God

He created heaven and the earth , the universe itself is a misery which cannot be unveiled.
In my heart, in our heart there lives the almighty. Big but yet small to occupy our hearts . You see I need no prove of God’s existence because I’m a living proof of his work

Well said sire one must believe,
IT EXISTS! beautiful message

For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature--have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

Some prove for some who still fail to believe

Proof 1

: Creation Demands a Creator. The Hubble telescope continues to reveal previously unknown galaxies. Our awesome universe simply astounds us. Under the night sky, King David of ancient Israel asked God: "When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him?"
Prove 2
Life Demands a Life-Giver. Scientists have tried in vain to create life from non-life, or even from "soups" of laboratory chemicals. They have utterly failed
prove 3
Laws Demand a Lawgiver. Science has discovered that our physical universe appeared from nothing
Proof 4
: Design Demands a Designer. Not only do we find predictable physical laws throughout the universe, we find tremendous evidence of intelligent design. The human body, for example, shows insurmountable evidence of design

There is lot more, it written in the word "the gods of this world has blinded their eyes that they know not the time of their redemption( paraphrased)

Powerful Monday motivation sir

People may have reason to say God doesn't exist, but how come they don't see a reason to show be exists?
The creation of the earth alone and all it's mysteries is something that the world will never be able to explain.
Let's look at it this way we believe there is always a tomorrow even when we haven't seen it, and that's why the bible say without faith we will never be able to please God.
God exists in his awesome wonders, in answer to our prayers, in the amazing abilities of his power, in our communication with him in prayer as well.
Only a fool will sat there is no God.

Great Message Brother! reason and rationale not without enough to comprehend the presence of God, however sooner or later the eyes of the will have confirm that can not deny it. I adored this message.

Today we must also diligently seek God through reading, and have faith and simply obey his word and believe that he is a rewarder of our diligence.

Another key to understanding God a little more is a study of His attributes. These characteristics, as revealed in the Bible, are crucial to understanding the truth about God, who He is, what He is like, and what He does:

Wisdom of God
Infinite God
Sovereignty of God
Holiness of God
Trinity
Omniscience of God
Faithfulness of God
Love of God
Omnipotent God
Self-Existent God
Self-sufficiency of God
God is Just
Immutability of God
Mercy
Eternal God
Goodness of God
God is Gracious
Omnipresence of God

Another way of understanding God is to study the life of His Son, Jesus. Colossians 2:9 says, “For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form.” In the Person of Jesus, God became man (John 1:14) and provided a way for us to have forgiveness of sin and eternal life with Him (2 Timothy 2:10).

Believing is much more than the intellectual recognition of what is written is true. Believing is also more than having the confidence that the Bible is inspired by God. To really believe, means to have faith that God lives, that he is active and is very interested in me today.I definitely love your SK Knight sermons, it's really gratifying to read this. the omnipresence of God, we pray and he is there even though we do not see him.

Nice picture DM.

There are many things that are real that we can’t actually see. We can’t always see air, for example, but we know it’s real. While we can’t see the air around us, if you blow on my arm, I can feel the air. That is “evidence” (a clue) that air exists even when we can’t see it. God has given us clue to His existence

First, nature is evidence of the existence of God. The fact us that the earth is so amazingly made to provide humans and animals a home.

Psalm 19:1 in a whole new light, “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.”

Second, people, however imperfect accept a universal standard of right and wrong. If there is no God in the world, if there is no Author of life who can distinguish right from wrong, why is it universally accepted that there is such a thing as right and wrong?”

God is the Creator of all things. In other words, the fact that you can see, hear, and feel anything is evidence of the God who created them.

All such things are limited. God is not temporal. None of this can be experienced by the limitations of the senses.

"The natural man cannot receive the things of God because they are spiritually discerned."
1 Corinthians 2:14

"That which can be seen is temporal. That which cannot be seen is eternal." 2 Corinthians 4:18

In Pauls letter to romans“since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature--have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.”

I once watched a comedy clip of a conversation between a little girl and her neighbour who is professor and atheist.
He argued that God isn't real because cannot see him/talk to him, and she replied by asking him a question: Do you have a brain?.
He replied in the affirmative.
Then she asked if he could see his brain and he said no.
The little girl them told the professor that since he cannot see it feel his brain, it doesn't exist.😂

All those who argue about the existence of God, know deep down that he exists.

I once saw a movie titled: GOD'S NOT DEAD(featuring Newsboys).
And the strong headed atheist professor ended up giving his life to Christ before he died after a fatal accident.

Some people make themselves believe God doesn't exist when they don't receive immediate answers.

How can you explain the existence of The Supreme being, who represents life?.

A lay man may call it nonsense if we go deeper to explain through the person of the Holy Spirit.

But, one fact sure remains, whether we agree or deny his existence and Supremacy, He is still GOD and very much alive!.

am telling you, they keep fighting a won battle

Well said sire, faith and believe is key. We feel God in various ways and when you exercise your faith in Him and allow it grow, one can get to higher levels of hearing from Him.
But first, one must believe

This got me thinking

This Knight sees God as an omnipresence (present everywhere) and omniscience (all-knowing), but not an omnipotent (all-powerful) spirit. There is enough evidence in the Bible to say that God cannot (perhaps will not), directly impact upon humanity. More so He does guide our course through indirect influences - such as control over elements and working through people.

God is sure the beginning and the end, the author and the finisher of our faith and God exists in his awesome wonders, in answer to our prayers.
I actually made a post about this just few minutes ago, I hope It wont be offensive sharing the link .
https://steemit.com/steemchurch/@oredebby/steemchurch-the-proof-of-his-resurrection

Our God is greater than the way people see Him.
He has been before the creation of the world and He still reign and He will continue to regin even after the world exist no more.

Though we cannot see God face to face but He made himself manifest through His Son Jesus in the form of human. He made Himself known to us through His Holy Spirit which is the Spirit of truth.

He also reveal himself to us through His word.
We need to always have a deep communion with him through His word and His Holy Spirit which bears Him withness and always convince us of His existence.

God lives forever more.

This explains it all.

Thanks @sirknight

God is always ready to speak to us in our daily basis but it is not everybody that is willing to listen or recognize Him when he speaks due to the things of the world that is dominating the heart of many.

We need to always have quiet time with God through studying of His word.
We need to always commune to Him through prayers and always building our confidence on Him and faith to really prove that we believe in His existence.

wow wow Lord ... I love that a voice is heard in favor of God and against what can not be denied. IT EXISTS! beautiful message

Good Message Brother! reason and logic not without enough to understand the existence of God, but at some point the eyes of the will have evidence that can not deny it. I loved this message. If the heavens can not contain it, less the earth that is small. Much Power Sirknight

God exists, that I know and I'm convinced about. I always laugh at people that try hard to prove the non existence of God. God has been wonderful to me and He has never disappointed me.

Just by looking at honeycombs, I know God exist!
Praise God for His creativity and wisdom!

Am dumbfounded!
My love for #steemchurch has no bound....
The blessings is numerous to even count....
@steemchurch you people are too much....
Always bringing up new approach to better our lives......
May God immensely bless you @sirknight and all the brains behind this amazing initiative....In Jesus Name.....

This message has made my morning dear gentleman ... I have many agnostic friends and I believe that this message when you read them, will divide your heart. Thank you for sharing this publication on behalf of God. God bless you always

Wow! This is high-powered!

Honestly, coming to the knowledge of God is not sensual; rather it's holy-ghost-inspired. As I was reading this post, particularly, the header " Responding to doubters." The movie "God Is Not Dead"replayed itself in my mind-- talking about the Professor, who did everything without His human power to suppress the truth that God is very much alive. (For those of us who have seen this movie, we know the remaining part).

God is no flesh; so whoever tries to fathom His dealings or nature scientifically, through his or her senses will end up in a beautiful misery.

@sirknight this post really resonated with my mind. Thanks for sharing. I love the concluding part.
Kind regards.

Thanks for charging us with this @sirknight

The more we know God through His word, the better we become in building our relationship with Him.
God has revealed Himself to us through His son Jesus and through His word(Bible).
All we need to know about life and how to relate with him is fully loaded in His word, we just have to keep studying and acting on the word through the help of the Holy Spirit.

He is the God of all

God Is Spirit and those who worship him, must worship in spirit and in truth.

Only the unwise doubt about the existence of GOD.

Let the peace of the Lord, that passeth all understanding be with you all, now and for ever. Amen!

This is a nice post @sirknight. People tend to look for God in the wrong places, how can someone so mighty and powerful adhere to human whims. They want physical proof of existence of someone with the greatest spiritual superiority. They believe in the big bang theory because they understand it... well i believe in God who caused it to explode.

You see, God is unlike men that shows off or seek attention and so some stupid questions crosses the heart of the hypocrite . If he’s God why doesn’t he show himself, why wouldn’t we see him. The fact that we’ve not seen a thing doesn’t mean that thing doesn’t exist. God has shown himself and still shows himself but these hypocrite are too blind to see cause they believe they own themselves. God is everywhere and those who believe in him through the son will have everlasting life

The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom.
So those who fear not cause they believe not lacks the wisdom, the heavenly wisdom and so they operate on the worldly level. Those who fear him are not of this world and so are the wisdom and knowledge from above.
Come unto me all ye that labors and heavy laden I shall give you rest, this rest is for those who believes and come unto God through the son Jesus Christ.
Praise God all living organisms cause the earth is the lord’s and everything therefore

I extremely never realized that there was some place we could clarify God's oath with such fredom and love this way!

With regards to the presence of God, the obvious things of the world unmistakably talks about the imperceptible God to such an extent that no man is without pardon! Rom.1:20

Also, for a few of us, we have his observer in us.

I have discovered another home on the stage

Dear parishioners, let us love one another, for love comes from God.
Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.
Whoever doesnot lovr, does not know God.Because God is love.
This is how God showed his love among us.He sent his one and only son into the world that we might live through him.
Indeed I am impressed by the Good works of @sirknight, I call him the true army of light.
What are you waiting for? join steemchurch today.
Behold the true army of light @sirknight

We hear from God.. Through it's Word, that's why the bible is there to Guide Us "Christians" !
We live in a world where right and wrong mean something, that's we have our conscience to Judge us..
Basically the conscience we have as Christian is word of God inside us!
The bible talked about Faith is "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Hebrews 11:1
Faith in God helps us to hear from God..
Thanks @Sirknight

You speak my heart!!!

Recently a friend said and I quote: "what if we're fooling ourselves with all these prayers? What if no one is up there"?

This particular assertion changed the way I see him and reduced the respect I had for him.

Even science cannot wrap their minds around the mystery of creation. They've tried to biologically place everything in order yet it eludes them how the bones came to be.

Truth is, we believe because we've seen the evidence. And to many that are blind to the wonders of God, it becomes an issue for the to attain certain height.

Thank you again @sirknight

Well said sir. God isn't something you can see, feel, hear and taste in the normal sense. All things which the senses detect are created things. God is the Creator of all those things. In other words, the fact that you can see, hear, feel and taste anything is evidence of the God who created them. All such things are limited and finite. God is not temporal. HE IS IMMATERIAL, Infinite and Eternal. None of which can be experienced by the limitations of the senses. "The natural man cannot receive the things of God because they are spiritually discerned." 1 Corinthians 2:14 "That which can be seen is temporal. That which cannot be seen is eternal." 2 Corinthians 4:18 "The natural man is at enmity to God." Romans 8:7. A natural man cannot understand what God is. We(believers) understand the true nature of God because we love him and we have hope in him. This is done by the faith we have in him. Like the knight said, for the whole world to get destroyed by evil, it must have destroyed the 3 factors.
LOVE
FAITH AND
HOPE.

Today whoever must take decision on your case will not sleep. God will trouble their hearts that they will call for the book of remembrance concerning you. Decisions that will favour you shall be set in motion today Those who planned evil agains you will be compelled to announce your success and promotion . This is your season of upliftment and God will favour you. Start today in expectation and end with great testimony. Shout victory!!!!. Good morning @sirknight

Very inspirational message @sirknight. There is a saying that " It's only a fool who says God does not exist ". Indeed God exists and is everywhere and knows everything. He is the alpha and omega of everything in this universe. We may not see him with our physical eyes, however, we can see Him with our eyes of faith. God richly bless you for sharing. @sirknight

great get notification from you a debt of gratitude is in order for sharing God favor you
This is a pleasant post @sirknight. Individuals tend to search for God in the wrong places, by what method would someone be able to so forceful and intense cling to human impulses. They need physical confirmation of presence of somebody with the best profound predominance. They have faith in the theory of how things came to be on account of they comprehend it... well I have confidence in God who made it detonate.

I can add that God is spirit and that although atheists do not believe, in their own books this is written stories (Before Christ) and (After Christ), the whole universe speaks of God's love, and how can there be a design without a designer ?, God bless you Lord.

If there is a god?...ok..ok .... what I say is just what I think.. ok.
it's just an illusion to control the masses and guide them in a certain direction... if there is some one who looks like god... then there's someone with just a higher and more advanced technology who tries to manipulate our minds in hes own best interests/........ as is said in one film... One ring to rule them all .

That's why I believe in myself, and it helps me a lot more.

Lol.. well here in Nigeria what people can't argue is the fact that the supernatural exist because, they see it DAY and night. So once someone says there is no God, I will simply ask him if he has seen the supernatural? He/she will agree then I'll tell him our GOD IS SIMPLY THE KING OF THE SUPERNATURAL WORLD.

wow wow Señor ... Me encanta que una voz se oiga a favor de Dios y en contra de lo que no se puede negar. ¡DIOS EXISTE! bello mensaje

I have always wondered why there are people who doubt so much about the existence of God, why there are people who still believe in the big bang theory. It is harder for me to believe in this theory than to believe in the creation of the world by God. I know he is real because it is impossible that so much perfection in our bodies, in the animals in the trees, have been created alone, I can not believe that we are particles that evolved and we have grown so perfectly with each organ in its due place. I do not think an evolution is so wise. Wise is God. My faith is in him, as father and creator. and because so far their miracles have manifested in our lives and every day that passes we see the power of God doing wonderful things in us. God bless you.

Wow...this is beautiful.
I really never knew that there was some where we could expound God's word with such fredom and love like this!

As to the existence of God, the visible things of the world clearly speaks of the invisible God such that no man is without excuse! Rom.1:20
And for some of us, we have his witness in us.

I've found a new home on the platform!

keep steeming!

Amen! Other questions that can't be well explained by any other world view except that of Christian are:

Who are we?
Where do we come from?
What has gone wrong in the world?

Thank you so much @sirknight. I choose to be strong, stay focused on Jesus and continue demonstrating God's love to those that are still wavering in doubts.

Several people in this world have different world views
Such as Naturalistic, Secular, Traditional and christian world view.

The christian world view handles these 3 questions in a satisfactory manner as given below;

Who are we?
Spirits with a soul and walking in the body.

Where do we come from?
We originate from God. God created us in his own image- Genesis 1:27

What has gone wrong in the world?
Man sinned against God but there is a solution to this and that is salvation through believing and trusting in Jesus.

There is a lot to discuss about this subject but with all due humility, let me halt here for now.

Am blessed, thank you so much for sharing with us.

Respected knight this is a subject much debated by many disbelievers; the best things in life are not seen, they are not palpated, but they are felt through love, of kindness and how wonderful is the love of God for us, that forgives all our sins, that gives us what we need , it is impossible not to believe in it when we see each part of life the complex and wonderful of the human body, its functions, the complete nature, each element that is part of the universe, only someone with great power, wisdom and supernatural could create it , nothing is equated, there is no man who has done with all science something so perfect. And all the people who believe in him, that every day we have that confidence called faith, we see how he gives us the necessary wisdom to follow the right thing , we see how every time we approach God, we do better.

Thank you @sirknight for this wonderful sermon, somethings in this life cant be seen, God is everywhere, God's presence is continuous throughout all of creation, though it may not be revealed in the same way at the same time to people everywhere. At times, He may be actively present in a situation, while He may not reveal that He is present in another circumstance in some other area

But to do all of this - the evil must first destroy our love and faith in God.
We must never let this happen.

This is the verse that keeps me going

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, [39] Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Rom.8 Verses 38 to 39

Maybe this meme will convince those who still do not believe ?

Ateizm.png

The words of this gentleman @sirknight have come to my bones, because in these times many more abound than in the ancient ones who without any valid foundation dare to doubt the existence of the CREATOR, the comparisons to face these who are called atheists What you give us as an example @sirknight; I will take them into account when I once again face them, just look around our own perfect designed bodies with each member and the cellular life that lives in us,
Psalm 90: 2

Before the mountains were begotten, and the earth and the world were born, from eternity to eternity, you are God.

Porque la vida es un proceso de creación en el que DIOS es su arquitecto y mayor hacedor. Sin el nada existe ni ha existido ni existirá

wow Lord ... I adore that a voice is heard for God and against what can not be denied. IT EXISTS! wonderful message

Great Message Brother! reason and rationale not without enough to comprehend the presence of God, however sooner or later the eyes of the will have confirm that can not deny it. I adored this message.

This is a decent post @sirknight. Individuals tend to search for God in the wrong places, in what manner would someone be able to so strong and capable stick to human impulses. They need physical verification of presence of somebody with the best otherworldly prevalence. They put stock in the theory of how things came to be on the grounds that they comprehend it... well I have confidence in God who made it detonate.
Much obliged to you @sirknight for this brilliant sermon, somethings in this life cannot be seen, God is all over, God's quality is consistent all through all of creation, however it may not be uncovered similarly in the meantime to individuals all over the place. On occasion, He might be effectively present in a circumstance, while He may not uncover that He is available in another condition in some other region
Much obliged to you so much @sirknight. I be solid, remain centered around Jesus and keep exhibiting God's affection to those that are as yet faltering in questions.

There are lots of things we can not see yet still believe in their existence all because we believe and indeed they come into being. We Christians may not be able to scientifically prove the existence of our ominpresent God, but with our eyes of faith we know and believe in his existence and ultimate power. Stay blessed @sirknight

John 4:24
English Standard Version (ESV)

God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”

I love this passage so very much... I think this is the key to teaching those who are sensitive in the Spirit, and to simply dismiss those who are not, until they become so... (hahahahahaha) These are great too:

Do you love your wife and children? (How do you know you do?)
Do you have high hopes for the future? (Can we see this hope?)
Do you have faith in your friends and family? (Prove it!)
Then you can get a little more scientific:
Do you believe in Atoms - proton, neutrons, electrons - how do you know they exist if you can't see them?
If there is no Creator - what came before the Big Bang?
Does 'time' exist? You can't see or hear 'time'.

The answers to each of these we already know, which of course lead us to the answer to their doubts being obvious, too, and their doubt superfluous.

God bless you brother, great post, keep it up, Knight!

Very well post we all believe on God and when believe means blind believe no need for search only faith and believe.

Excellent work @sirknight, is very common to find people who do not believe in the great power of God, and make them understand a little about it is something complicated, but sometimes the cause of the evil that corrupts this world and blinds people to to distance them from God, but to teach them the truth is to give them salvation and a hope of going to meet God.

Faith is my backbone and strength in this life. I've used these arguments and will continue to employ love as my armor. We go from strength to strength.

The bible says in John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
This shows us that God is the word so when we have the word that is the bible we have God .
The bible also tells us that the word is power.
And the later Paul tells the church that as they read the word there is some thing they get,Ephesians 3:4 Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)
Proverbs 4:22 For they [are] life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
Here the bible is telling us that the word is health to those that find it and that word is God.
So lets invest in the word if we want to see God
God bless you all.

Excellent Post, unfortunately not everyone is aware of them since they deny it every day.

Romans 1: 19-21

19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.

God bless you

Admirable and respected @ sirknight, in reality God can not see, can not touch, but all those who love him, we can feel it in our hearts, in every action, in every dawn, in every step we take. The kingdom of God is in every person who puts in our lives as angels, you are an angel that he has put in the way of many to help them in difficult times.

Certainly we meet many people with false beliefs, and that with their skeptical and scientific, and sometimes even biological intelligence they try to give answers to a truth that only we can see: "the Lord is everywhere and in each one of us". If we love our neighbor, if we do justice, if we work to discover the beauty of the path of our God, we are doing his will on earth.

But to do all this, evil must first destroy our love and faith in God.

If there is love and faith in our hearts, it is impossible that they can stop us, because God is with us.
GOD BLESS YOU @sirknight

This question has troubled people for ages. From my own point of view, the mere fact that people are trying to disregard the existence of God shows his existence.

I mean, why disturb yourself so hard to try to prove something isn't real except deep down within you, you're hoping to discover that that thing exists?.

I post this question to the steemchurch family.

Let me begin by saying I do not mean to cause any tension or issue in what I am going to ask, just looking for some answers to my curiosity :)

I would like to know why you use the pronoun "he" throughout the post to describe god?

If the entity that is god is omnipresence why must it be gender specific?

Thank you for any response to these questions. Looking forward to a healthy discussion friend :)

Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God ,Well said sire, faith and believe is key. We feel God in various ways and when you exercise your faith in Him and allow it grow, one can get to higher levels of hearing from Him.

Well said sir. God isn't something you can see, feel, hear and taste in the ordinary sense. Everything which the resources perceive are made things. God is the Creator of each something. By the day's end, the way that you can see, hear, feel and taste anything is verification of the God who made them. Each and every such thing are obliged and constrained. God isn't short lived. HE IS IMMATERIAL, Infinite and Eternal. None of which can be experienced by the constrainments of the resources. "The consistent man can't get the things of God since they are significantly seen." 1 Corinthians 2:14 "That which can be seen is common. That which can't be seen is everlasting." 2 Corinthians 4:18 "The general man is at malevolence to God." Romans 8:7. A trademark man can't appreciate what God is. We(believers) appreciate the honest to goodness thought of God since we love him and we have confide in him. This is done by the certainty we have in him.

Well said sir. God isn't something you can see, feel, hear and taste in the typical sense. Everything which the faculties recognize are made things. God is the Creator of every one of those things. At the end of the day, the way that you can see, hear, feel and taste anything is proof of the God who made them. Every single such thing are constrained and limited. God isn't fleeting. HE IS IMMATERIAL, Infinite and Eternal. None of which can be experienced by the confinements of the faculties. "The regular man can't get the things of God since they are profoundly perceived." 1 Corinthians 2:14 "That which can be seen is worldly. That which can't be seen is everlasting." 2 Corinthians 4:18 "The regular man is at ill will to God." Romans 8:7. A characteristic man can't comprehend what God is. We(believers) comprehend the genuine idea of God since we cherish him and we have trust in him. This is finished by the confidence we have in him. Like the knight stated, for the entire world to get crushed by malicious, it probably devastated the 3 factors.

LOVE

Confidence AND

Expectation.

Individuals say I will trust it when we see it. The Bible shows us we should trust first then we see. Each and every individual at one time had the capacity to accept, in light of the fact that God gives every one the measure of confidence and He sets endlessness in our souls. I solicited a room from individuals p, maybe 100 or thereabouts, this inquiry. What number of individuals trust God raised Jesus from the dead. No one wavered, each hand went up. Everybody in the room trusted Jesus was raised from the dead. This is astonishing! No one saw it, yet everybody trusted it. Since this is required for us to be spared. We need to trust God raised Jesus from the dead and admit Him as Lord. Romans 10:9. The unconditional present of elegance to be spared.

The Bible say the trick says in his heart there is no God. Truly it mean a trick says there is no God for me. That God thing is beneficial for you, however not for me.

They chose one day not to accept!

One thing that is stunning you were talking about the make up of iotas. There is something imperceptible holding everything together and researchers can't discover it, see it or measure it, however they know it must be there. The agnostic researcher named this thing "The God Particle"

We recognize what or Who holds this stuff together by the sacred writings.

Heb 1:3 Who being the splendor of his grandness, and the express picture of his individual, and maintaining everything by the expression of his energy.
