How I Know God Exists

I have a habit of staying up later than I should now that summer camp is over and there are a couple of weeks before school starts.  I was watching the HBO Comedy channel on TV while scanning for something to watch.  First of all, that's an oxymoron because nothing from HBO is funny, ever.  Anyway, there was Bill Maher doing a stand-up act.  Apparently, he's not a fan of Republicans and George W. Bush in particular.  He was babbling on and on about how religion is phony and all this.  I perked my ears to hear what excuses and reasons he would give for there not being a God.  All he could come up with is "people are corrupt" and "God is invisible."  I just have one thing to say to Mr. Maher, thanks buddy.  He basically just quoted Scripture in his futile attempt to dispute God.  Yes people are corrupt, duh.  The Bible says that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.  So yes, in Christianity there are very corrupt people and they do a detriment to our God.  The Bible over and over calls God invisible.  It's because we really can't see Him.  We can see His power in our lives.  I've seen miracle after miracle in people's lives.  Now I get to say that Bill Maher has advanced the Gospel better than some preachers.  Not to mention that God has always blessed me when things were going not so great.  I've had a lot of troubles in my life, but I never got flustered because in the end, God wins.  I got to hang out with some friends yesterday and we discussed a lot of things.  The main thing I got out of it was that we are all a blessing to each other.  Whether it's some wise words we've said or attitudes we've had, we've always done well to help each other out.  God always works through our inabilities and inadequacies to bring honor to Himself and His kingdom.  I'm just thankful that people can say the same about me.  It's just a shame that people can't see how good God is with all their blessings.

  1. Tyrone.. You have blessed my heart with your eloquent testimony to the Grace of God. Your heartfelt words unashamedly express what most self-professing Christians either are afraid to say for fear that they might "offend" their friends or they can't because their belief is not strong enough.. Congratulations for your convictions and your friendship.
