It is quite possible to look at the universe and come to a conclusion that there is no God. I have always marveled at this … sometimes wondering why it is not other than it is. And yet I am convinced that it is in the very humility of God that things are the way they are. It would have been quite possible to have walked by the cross of Christ and assumed there was just one more Jew dying on a cross. — Fr. Stephen
This really struck me. Christian Appologetics seems to take a materialistic, rationalistic approach: “These things are absolutely true and, as a result, you must believe.” But if we are honest, there is no such proof. There is no one thing that I can point to that will convince anyone that what I believe is true. And my experience with God isn’t going to satisfy anyone who chooses not to believe.
