Can You Test the Existence of God Like You Can Test Air?

The other day I received an email in our ministry inbox from an anti-theist. The reason I say anti-theist is because the person would be considered a lightweight in contrast to folks like Michael Ruse, John Gray, Alex Rosenberg, Kai Neilsen, or Brian Lieter.

101011_isgodarrogantSometimes a skeptic will throw down an objection that really causes the questioned to pause. This objection is one of those objections.  “Why should I worship a God who is self-centered and conceited because He created an entire Earth and universe just to sit around and worship Him?

If this objection had any validity, I don’t think I would want to worship that kind of God either. Would you?  There has to be an underlying issue to our worshiping a Creator Who got things started from the start of the universe to what we see around us today. Continue reading
