Is it Possible to Find God?


His purpose was for the nations to seek after God and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him–though he is not far from any one of us” Acts 17:27. NIV

Should we consider the agnostic, the one who has doubts about the existence of God as we would an atheist or a prodigal?

God’s intent is for every person to make their way to him and find him. When a person searches for God with all their heart they will find him. He promises Israel that would be the case when they were in captivity in Babylon and he promises the individual the same thing.

Maybe the answer to the question is that some agnostics are more like an atheist and some are like the prodigal son. God is there and if they look for him, they WILL find him.

  1. I would also like to add that there are philosophical arguments for God’s existence that it seems that monotheism is the best answer to while the arguments against His existence are usually based on misunderstandings of definition like. “How can an all-powerful and good God allow so much evil in the world.” That question is actually easy to answer although when dealing with pain it is difficult to accept. There is suffering because there is freewill. God created man with a will of his own and it would be a violation of that to never let him exercise his freewill, intervening all the time. But arguments about the first cause of the universe and the existence of objective moral values clearly point to God and then you add the historical accounts of Jesus’ death, burial and the empty tomb and you have a good foundation for Christian theism.
