Almighty God

Quoting Charles H. Spurgeon:

“I believe that every particle of dust that dances in the sunbeam does not move an atom more or less than God wishes; that every particle of spray that dashes against the steamboat has its orbit as well as the sun in the heavens; that the chaff from the hand of the winnower is steered as surely as the stars in their courses; that the creeping of an insect over a rosebud is as much fixed as the march of the devastating pestilence; and the fall of leaves from the poplar is as fully ordained as the tumbling avalanche.

He who believes in God must believe this truth. There is no standing point between this and Atheism. There is no halfway between an Almighty God, who works all things according to the good pleasure of his will, and no God at all!”

  2. So, according to this quote our choices are believing in a god that controls everything and hence endorses all the suffering in the world or being atheist. I’m so glad I made the right choice.

    • The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, doing abominable iniquity; there is none who does good. (Psalm 53:1 ESV)

      The existence of God must be accepted by faith, but this does not mean belief in God is illogical. There are many good arguments for the existence of God. The Bible teaches that God’s existence is clearly seen in the universe (Psalm 19:1-4), in nature (Romans 1:18-22), and in our own hearts (Ecclesiastes 3:11). At the same time, it takes just as much faith to believe in atheism. To make the absolute statement “God does not exist” is to make a claim of knowing absolutely everything there is to know about everything and of having been everywhere in the universe and having witnessed everything there is to be seen. Of course, no atheist would make these claims. However, that is essentially what they are claiming when they state that God absolutely does not exist.

      Therefore, “atheism is a sort of ‘crutch’ for those who can’t stand the reality of God.” (Tom Stoppard, 1937)

      Atheism is a disease of the soul, before it becomes an error of the understanding. (Plato – Ancient Greek Philosopher, 428 BC – 348 BC)
