Last week, I asked “What if the atheists are right?” This week, I pose the opposite question, “What if the Christians are right?” If God came down in the form of a man, took our sins upon Himself, and died for us, how should we respond?
Some might call faith foolish, they might disparage the “magic” of believing, but that doesn’t mean we should simply turn away without questioning. The search for answers is never a futile effort. Even when the answers we find are not the ones we set out to discover.
For some reason, people think that science and religion are diametrically opposed. That on one side stands those who seek to understand the universe and on the other those that put faith in the creator of the universe.
Why can’t we be both? A seeker for answers and a faithful servant? Why do they have to be mutually exclusive? To believe we know everything there is to know about faith, religion, and God is excessively prideful. To think our understanding of God can only come from one source is discouraging. But to condemn someone for they way they seek answers tells us more about ourselves.
As we constantly seek to deepen our faith and understand why God would want to show us grace, we strive to uncover the nature of God. But at the forefront of our minds, we should continually question, “What if…?”
What if God did die on Good Friday? What if He rose from the dead Easter morning? How would you respond if this were true?
How should I?
