Given all the wonders of creation, it is amazing that there are still people who doubt that there is a God, but some day, we will certainly all stand before this Holy and Righteous God and will be required to give account of our lives (Romans 14:12). I would hate to stand before Him without the covering of the Blood of Jesus. Yet, there will be many that will be there in that very situation (Revelation 20:11-15). But their lack of belief will be without excuse according to the Bible. We are told in Romans 1:20-21: “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.”
As this passage explains, God reveals evidence of His existence and His love everywhere in creation. Anyone with an open mind who is seeking the truth, even if they are born in the furthest uninhabited corners of the globe and don’t have the benefit of a modern education or scripture, they will still be able to figure out that there is a Creator from the abundant evidence that God provides everywhere in nature. As I’ve written in previous blogs, the ancient Greeks figured out the incredible complexity and order throughout nature and figured out that such order required causation, and they subsequently determined that there had to be a Higher Being behind it all.
From the study of the ancient Greek philosophers during the middle ages, many scholars learned of the Greek’s determination that there had to be a “first cause,” although the Greeks didn’t know His name. From Wikipedia: “'the First Cause is also the Prime Mover of the world; and, since motion is a fact revealed by the senses, the Prime Mover must exist by necessity, a being unable to be otherwise than it is. Consequently, it is also perfect and thus the ultimate object of desire, or the ‘Supreme Good’. And, since nature operates for a purpose, the Prime Mover must also be intelligent. Being eternal it is divine…' and we now know of it as ‘God.’ The ultimate cause, or source, of all natural phenomena occurring in the natural world had been discovered.”
Moreover, many Native Americans even figured it out through the wonder and beauty of nature without the aid of scripture. Consequently, many of them worshipped what they called the Great Spirit.
I pray that you will know this Supreme Being today in a personal way through the doorway to God, His Son Jesus (John 10:9 and John 14:6).
