[journey through romans: 1:17-32]

Something that drew my attention (once again) today as I read this passage from Romans were verses 19 and 20.

For the truth about God is known to them instinctively; God has put this knowledge in their hearts. Since earliest times men have seen the earth and sky and all God made, and have known of his existence and great eternal power.

Romans 1:19-20, Living Bible

People often ask “Where is your God? Why can’t we see Him?”

Whenever I hear others ask that, I keep wondering whether I would be considered cheeky if I replied, “Everywhere. Just take a look around!”

The other extreme from not seeing God at all is seeing everything as God.

This has been one of the most basic yet drastic mistakes people have ever made. Worshipping the creation instead of the Creator. Sounds cliche, yet it happens all the time.

And finally, the thing that irks me… the fact that many Christians are afraid of science.

If I believe in God, why should I fear that sometime science might discover something wrong with my beliefs in God? If anything, science proves that God exists – because no scientist in his / her right mind believes that everything happened because of a random chance. They might not agree with our Christian definition of God, yet there had to be someone to orchestrate the entire thing.

If I believe in God and I believe that He is the divine Creator, that also means He created all the nature’s laws. Therefore, those laws cannot disprove His existence.

If I believe in God, everything falls into place. Perhaps we don’t know so much about the universe, yet what we know, keeps pointing at His Divine Presence.
