God who's name alone is Jehovah has given humanity a free will to choose to serve him or not.===================I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: (Deuteronomy 30:19 KJV) ======== It's our choice but choose wisely.====================And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. (Joshua 24:15 KJV)
The sin of pride is like a wall in the hearts of unbelievers. They want to be in control and not be submitted to a higher authority. This leads to the sin of idolatry, where they essentially worship themselves.
John 3:19-20 "And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that does evil hates the light, neither comes to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved." Because if they admit there is a God, then they must be accountable to someone higher than themselves.
This is more if an opinion and/or personal belief question. Some people believe in God, some believe in nothing, some believe in a different higher being. Me personally I believe in God. There are many different religions with many different beliefs. Everyone doesn't have the same beliefs.
There's a scripture in the 4th chapter of Thessolonians that says something to the effect of: "The god of this world (satan) has put a veil over the eyes of people so they cannot see the Truth." THAT'S why it's so hard to really see and understand! So after they ask Jesus into their lives, the veil is removed and they can see more clearly... Makes sense to me...
well you can't tell me where the wind is, what it looks like, or where the wind travels so there for, there is no such thing as wind or air. you can't tell me what a headache looks like, but you can tell me how it feels. but then.. there is no such thing as a headache, can you tell me what emotions look like?? I mean its, its funny we can have answered for what the weather with be like tomorrow, yet we can't believe in God. but maybe the athiest doesn't wanna find God for the same reason a the if can't find a policeman... honestly, God gave us free will.. so most people believe but choose to ignore God. other people won't believe because they are so rapped up in wanting evidence. but the bible says that "God doesn't show himself to everybody. people won't believe because there hearts are harden like stone, but he reveals himself to those who aren't asking for him, he searches for those who arent looking for him." but like I said he gave us free will so some of us decided to worship idols and false Gods like Allah and budah(romans chapter 1 talks about this), and its funny how the world can talk about all of those false idols, yet refuse to talk about God the father, everybody sure was looking at the myan calendar. america claims to be one nation under God, but clearly has different religions and what not. very big contradiction. if people don't take time to read and understand the bible then of course they won't have faith if not little.. but that's the very reason why people can't turn to Jesus, because there hearts are made of stone, and see rapped in the world they see.. but the things that are seen are only temporary, were as the unseen lasts forever.. God made us in his image, and God is always exalted and always has glory, so being in his image we as humans want glory and stuff too. which is why some of us don't wanna believe in God, because some people, like emperors and Queens and kings and popstars, want to be God in there own way.. I notice that artists named there albums things like "Ivan not human" or "rule the world".. because they want to be God, but there is only one God who has complete power and dominion over all things
I think that some people don't understand why God let's things happen in our lives,I blamed God for years, for my only son being sick,asking him why ? I was a good person,and years later almost being beat to death by my son one night,and when I thought that I had no one in the world that could help me,I poured my heart out to God,asking him to save my only son, whom I love with all of my heart,and reading the bible I didn't want to believe what the bible was telling me,and after reading it over a hundred times,before thinking could it be true ? at this point I had nothing to lose,and then things started to fall in place. I can honestly say,if my son was not born mentally ill,I don't know if I ever would of found God.
