Often God does not act in the way we would like Him to act or that we think He should act. I hear atheists say things like, “If God existed and want to speak with us, He would make Himself clear and all of us would have a common understanding,” and “If God existed He would have given us a holy book without errors and confusion.” Of course, none of this proves that God doesn’t exist. It merely proves that God is not acting as some of us expect Him to act. What shall we do about this?
Here’s a strategy: Accept that God acts the way He acts…and try to learn more about that way.
In other words, maybe it’s not that His behavior is lacking, but rather that our expectations are inappropriate.
In any case, to continue expecting God to act in a way that He does not act is just plain foolish.
