Apologetics: I don’t Believe in God posted by John Sorensen on Aug 05, 2019
What are you afraid of? Now, I don’t mean spiders, heights or the dark. I mean, why are you scared to share your faith? Perhaps you’re scared of the questions that could be asked. How about the big one – how do you know that there is a God? Witnessing to an Atheist can seem daunting, but you know what? God loves them as much as He loves a believer, and He wants them to know that! That’s a pretty important fact.
So, how do we answer them? Well, while believing in God requires faith, so does believing that there is not a God. We see a lot more proof of a Creator and Designer than we do for the Big Bang. For something to exist, it must be made. You can’t make anything out of nothing!
Space, time and matter exist. Something had to create all of that. Everything that exists has a cause. Everything was specifically designed and follows the laws of nature. There must be a Creator. If we don’t have a Creator, then we really don’t have a moral code, either. Life is essentially pointless.
We’ll have a video up on ShareLife.Today called “Reasonable Answers for Honest Skeptics: I Don’t Believe in God.” Check that out for a couple of ways to answer a nonbeliever.
Don’t forget, though, that it is perfectly okay to say, “I don’t know, but I can find out!” when you aren’t sure how to respond. Admitting you don’t have all the answers can lead to another conversation where you might be more prepared. Remember, God loves who you are sharing with, so answer them out of love, not argumentatively.
This is our focus this week at Evangelism Explosion through our social media channels and our daily broadcast. Visit ShareLife.Today for help sharing what you believe.
May God richly bless you this week as you represent the very real and very alive one true God!
