The claim that belief in God requires some degree of blindness has been made countless times throughout recorded history. We are told we need merely accept His existence without needing to verify His existence. Yet, the existence of God does not require any degree of blindness to know He exists.
There are others who believe faith of any kind in God is automatically blind by its very definition. According to Merriam-Webster, faith has three definitions and only one has to do with having a firm belief in something in which there is no proof, which falls under 2 b. Those who do not believe in God often point to this definition as a reason to discount all faith.
2 a is often ignored, since both parts give faith a completely different meaning. Part 1 is defined as belief and trust in and loyalty to God. Part 2 is defined as belief in the traditional doctrines of a religion. Nothing under the first definition requires faith to have no proof.
There are absolutes that exist in the universe and the absolutes must have come from God. One such absolute is the first law of thermodynamics, which states energy can neither be created or destroyed. If energy cannot be created, where did the energy originate? Only God could have put energy in place at the beginning, since there is no other explanation for the very existence of something that cannot be created.
There are other absolutes, but each lead to the same questions and same point of origin. Absolutes exist and only God can bring about the answers to the questions, since only God can set the laws in place. Energy exists only because God put it there and no other scientific explanation can be given for something that we know exists that cannot be created or destroyed.
It is not just physics that proves the existence of God, but in mathematics as well. When a new formula is introduced, it is never referred to as an invention. New formulas are always referred to as discoveries. Why is it referred to as a discovery? The answer is all mathematics that will every be known is already in place and waiting for the right mind to make the discovery.
God is the only explanation for the existence of energy and God is the only explanation for the existence of mathematical formulas. The laws of physics and mathematics have been tested and both have been proven true. To deny the existence of God is to deny the overwhelming evidence that does exist.
There is other evidence of God in the very existence of Israel as a nation today. It is only through God that Israel survived her War for Independence and won the wars that followed. They should have been crushed in days due to overwhelming force of arms and soldiers, but God has never forgotten his covenant and acted on their behalf.
The Jews remain the chosen people of God and nothing can alter what God promised. His covenant was without end and no other religion has ever replaced Judaism. God scattered the people of Israel and God is calling His people home.
For those who believe Christians replaced Jews as the chosen people of God, should take a close look at Matthew 5:17 and 18.
- “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.
- For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.
There is scientific and mathematical evidence to show God does exist. The existence of Israel is further proof. God created energy, which cannot be created, and God created the mathematical formulas for us to discover. It is only God who could have intervened on behalf of the rebirth of Israel.
