What is the fear that people have about believing? Why does it completely erk some people when someone has belief? Why is it that people are so eager to have proof when they do not even strive to obtain this proof? It reminds me of little kids wanting something immediately and never working towards obtaining it. And all the while, these proofless people work deligently to make sure others feel silly for trying to obtain or believe that there may just be something that cannot be scientifically proven or disproven. People are putting their trust in man. People are putting their trust in medicine. People put their trust in other people that they know nothing about personally.
It really makes me think back to my school years when the popular opinion was the only opinion, and anyone that strayed from it was seen as a misfit. The world has gone back to popular opinion. God is not the popular opinion. Everyone seems to be able to find reason for why not to believe without ever even truly trying to believe. Why do nonbelievers work so hard to disprove something they have obviously never known? When you know, you know and there is no doubt, no way of going back to disbelief. People who neither know God, or who are trying to get to know God, should be on high alert of anyone trying to make them disbelieve. This is being said because these types of people do not have one’s best interests in mind. God brings peace, clarity, understanding, and a level of love that can only be obtained through Him. If anyone says they once believed, and then continue the conversation to try to make you disbelieve, then know that they never truly believed in the first place. Evil that does not recognize evil does not care to do evilly. It is really a sad condition that the human psyche gets caught up in – being and doing evil, but recognizing no wrong in themselves. Believers are to constantly test themselves, to stay aware of their current moral condition. Spiritual battles are real. Nonbelievers may pertain to doing ‘what is right’, but never understand the full extent of what they bring upon themselves by doing what is immoral. It is a really bad state of the mind, body, & heart because they do not clean themselves up by acknowledging and throwing out the wrongs to never return to them again. God gives a beautiful thing called repentance that allows believers to stay clean and prepared for tests, for battles.
Why is it that humans are so afraid to think there is something greater than themselves? Sounds egotistical, not logical. Knowing that we are in the age of ‘selfies’ and are building a godless foundation of selfish people, it is no surprise that nonbelief is rampant. The Bible holds all the keys for everything that is occurring. It’s just so hard not to deeply feel for the people that lack the true understanding. It would be amazing if the whole world could understand and know the truth; however, this is not what is going to happen, yet.
Keep praying in the meantime that those who do not believe for the sake of no tangible truth; for the sake of puffing themselves up; for the sake of spreading lies and deceit without fully being aware of doing so; for the sake of themselves feeling foolish; pray they come to understanding so that their talent of speaking openly will be of good use instead of evil gain.
