Scripture says that, “when He appears we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him like He is.” Who could refuse Jesus if they could see Him as He really is? The misconceptions of Him are easy to turn from and unfortunately those misconceptions often come from us, but it doesn’t have to be that way. We can really know Him and the closer we get the more like Him we become and through us the world can see the genuine Jesus.

There are many in the world with this view. Most refer to themselves as atheists, which is a term whose Greek root means without God. Atheists tend to be skeptical of the supernatural and have a number of reasons they deny the existence of Deity, among them, the lack of empirical evidence, the problem of evil and the existence of inconsistent revelations. Other lines of thinking that play into many atheists philosophy are; the law of parsimony, the case of non-belief and they believe the burden of proof should be on we who say there is a God and not on them to prove there isn’t. Well this is already a mouthful; maybe this is going to take longer than I thought. Tomorrow we’ll start digging into each of these arguments and explore some answers so we will be better able to love folks that don’t know God at all.
