Invisible Man in the Sky?


“Why do you believe in an Invisible Man in the Sky?” This is a question often asked by Atheists who don’t understand why believers believe in God and in Christ.

To them, there seems to be no rational reason why a believer would believe.

The Bible indicates that unbelievers cannot see the truth of God and Christ because: they have suppressed the natural knowledge of God because of the sins that they want to keep doing, and secondly, because they want to remain the sole arbiter of truth and, essentially, they want to be their own God, deciding what is reality and what is not.

The facts of life are self-evident to anyone with a live intuition and conscience. Communion with God is not needed in order to apprehend the basic facts of reality.

If you can see that there is consciousness, a brain that controls your body, DNA that controls the cells of your body, atoms and molecules that are designed, galaxies in the sky, an endless creative variety of animals and plants on the earth, then you can know by inference that there is a God who created all things.

(If you put your bare hand directly on a hot stove ring, you do not need to ask if the burn hurts.)

If you don’t want people to lie to you, steal from you, murder you, or cheat and commit adultery with your husband or wife (if you have one), then you know that there is a Moral Law, and that the God who created everything must be holy (because He created the Moral Law).

You know that you are disconnected from God because of your sins.

You hear of Jesus and know that His forgiveness and love and connection to God are the answer for salvation from afterlife justice in Hell, that He is the answer for afterlife salvation (Heaven), and for re-connection with God.

Those who believe in Jesus will be saved. (John 6:47)

  1. I’m working on a project to explain to those who seemingly don’t know, not only why someone would be an atheist, but also how they can be a morale agent still. In a lot of ways objective truth that is understandable from our subjective existence relies on the scientific method to come up with those objective underatandings.

    Newton, who arguably created the formalized scientific method was an incredibly religious man. And even he had to admit, after testing gravity, that this fundamental force did not require a God and showed no evidence of one. That it is a natural phenomenon in any testable fashion.

    The question “Why do you believe in God?” Is probably an improper question. It allows for the subjective experience to be the answer. That’s fine for a personal expression or claims that only matter to that individual. When things extend beyond your individual person then it requires testing. A better question might be, “What compelling evidence is there for me to believe in your God?” We all know, intuitively and testably, that the least reliable source of information comes from the subjective experience (not only others, but your own as well).

      1. It is actually a fact that not everyone believes in a god. It is also a fact that of those who believe in gods, there is little agreement as to what shape, form or existence that god exists in. One cannot take the stance that their own beliefs as voiced by them should carry weight without then agreeing that another’s belief is equally weighty for them. Which means your subjective understanding of the universe will constantly be opposed to everyone else’s subjective understanding of the universe. So, a reasonable person will attempt to create a system by which an objective understanding of the universe may be pieced together. Any subjective perspective then must be accounted for, removed as best as possible, and then setup in a way that another may test and come to the same conclusions based upon their own testing.

        I drop a pen, it falls to the Earth. You drop a pen, it does the same. Now, in order to be truly objective it must be that any testing, even in the future, will show the same results. A person 100 years from now will be able to drop a pen and it will fall to the Earth. Then we name that phenomenon, gravity, and we move along. If, at any time, tge pen does not fall toward the Earth, gravity is proven false. There is no analogous scenario for any gods. No falsification that is allowed, no objectivity allowed. No facts at all. Now, if you could prove any of the comments above, you would have most, if not all, atheists no longer asking you questions about why you believe. Not that I agree someone should randomly ask you, but if you are pronouncing they believe something they do not (everyone knows there is a god) then it is expected they may question your stance.

      2. Some people merely say they don’t believe in God. But I know they do, because the Bible says that everyone knows there is a God-they merely suppress it and tell themselves that there isn’t.

      3. If we are talking about anything, we are certainly not talking about “a god.” We are talking about “God.” God, outside and before creation, Creator of the three heavens and the Earth.

      4. ://polldaddy.com/js/rating/rating.jsIt is actually a fact that not everyone believes in a god. @Of course, it is true that people tell themselves that God does not exist. You could tell yourself that Pike’s Peak does not exist. It still does. But everyone knows there is a Creator because logic and the laws of science exists and are valid. Logic, a non-material, timeless reality has no other possible source but God.# It is also a fact that of those who believe in gods, there is little agreement as to what shape, form or existence that god exists in. @God created the universe. No questions of shape form or name need be addressed for this basic fact to be known.# One cannot take the stance that their own beliefs as voiced by them should carry weight without then agreeing that another’s belief is equally weighty for them. @Whoa, wait, I cannot say that I believe what I believe is true? Things I don’t believe must also be equally true? Says who? You? Who are you? 😀Which means your subjective understanding of the universe will constantly be opposed to everyone else’s subjective understanding of the universe. @Nope, total agreement. We all know there is a God. Some of us, Atheists, tell ourselves that God does not exist. Actually, Atheists do not exist. No one is really an Atheist, they just tell themselves they are Atheists.# So, a reasonable person will attempt to create a system by which an objective understanding of the universe may be pieced together. Any subjective perspective then must be accounted for, removed as best as possible, and then setup in a way that another may test and come to the same conclusions based upon their own testing. @Not necessary. God is beyond evidence. If the entire universe does not convince you that God exists, what evidence could possibly be presented that would convince you that God exists? Whatever that evidence is, is necessarily, God. God is necessary for the evidence to exist. God is necessary, and is before evidence, and creates evidence.
