Why I’m Not Interested in Proofs of God’s Existence

I’m not interested in proof’s of God’s existence because even if they’re successful, you still have the work of figuring out whether Jesus Christ truly represented Him or was false.  In other words, it’s an inefficient use of time – and, in life on this earth, nothing is more precious or irreplaceable than time.

Now, you could say to me, “But if Jesus Christ were proved false, it wouldn’t necessarily mean that there was no God.”  You’d be right.  I just wouldn’t care as much.  In my experience, no one else offers so clear, emphatic, and credible a presentation of truth about God and life as Jesus Christ.  If He’s wrong, there’s no one comparable to whom I’d be interested in turning.  He stands so far apart from the rest of humanity that whoever is in second place is far closer to last place than he or she is to first place.  If Jesus Christ is not true, “let us eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die.”

If Jesus Christ is true, however, you have not only a proof of God’s existence, you also have a declaration of God’s nature, and an open invitation to an ever-deepening relationship with Him.

  1. “If Jesus Christ is not true, “let us eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die.”

    I submit that regardless of Jesus, we should eat, drink, and be merry, because we all do die, and that fact makes our time alive all the more precious for it’s brevity.
