Why doesn’t God show Himself?

I just wrote a post. So the last thing my ego wants is to post a reblog in front of it, as a commenter said “Simply powerful.” Then he cited a portion of it that just sings…

insanitybytes22 points out in her post something simple, but profound. Actually seeing God would destroy us, and the Bible says as much. None of us could survive the proof the Atheist demands.

Would miracles work? If miracles were routine, then whats a miracle? There are over seven billion of us. Can you imagine if each of us got the sort of miracle we might demand as proof God exist? What we call the laws of science would cease to exist. The orderly universe we now experience would descend into chaos.

Instead of the miracles we might ask for, our Creator gave us His Creation, a miracle beyond our comprehension. Look around. How is it dog barks, squirrels leap through trees, and each leaf grows in indescribe detail just to colorfully fall and carpet the ground? Get away from city lights and look up into the night sky in wonder.

Psalm 19:1-4 New King James Version (NKJV)

19 The heavens declare the glory of God;
And the firmament shows His handiwork.
2 Day unto day utters speech,
And night unto night reveals knowledge.
3 There is no speech nor language
Where their voice is not heard.
4 Their line has gone out through all the earth,
And their words to the end of the world.

Those words were written long before men made teleoscopes or flew into space. Yet, the truth has not changed. The more we gaze the more incredible we find what we see. When we don’t even understand what we see, what more could we ask?

See, there's this thing called biology...

In the course of atheist blogging, this idea keeps coming up that suggests “if God wants me to follow Him, He’ll prove Himself to me.” First of all, the evidence of God’s existence is all around us. For me that sounds a bit like somebody demanding the sky prove itself.

I’m not sure what language one requires God to speak to them in, but I can see evidence of Him in the synchronicity of math, in the rhythm of music, in people’s acts of sacrificial love, in the collective consciousness of humankind, in fairy tales and art and love. I can also see him in reason and logic and Greek Philosophers and in theology and scripture. Sometimes I can see him in most banal things, like kitchen sponges and missing socks in the dryer. Whatever language you speak, God speaks it too, and is more than willing to reveal Himself…
