1 Do You Believe? It is impossible to be an atheist, Unnecessary to be an agnostic, Reasonable to believe in God.

2 Atheist An Atheist says, “I don’t believe in God”. God, the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus are in the same realm of un-believability for the atheist. An atheist has no knowledge of God.

3 But … How Much Does Anyone Know? How Much Do You Know?

4 Imagine if all the knowledge in the universe was represented by a sphere

5 How much of that sphere do we know?

6 Albert Einstein said, “We still do not know one thousandth of one percent of what nature has revealed to us”.

7 Let’s say we’re a thousand times smarter than Einstein.

8 In that case, we would know one percent of the total knowledge of the universe.

9 We could represent that one percent by a circle in the sphere

10 An atheist believes within his circle, there is no knowledge of God.

11 An atheist also believes there is no knowledge of God outside his circle.

12 To be an atheist you believe God doesn’t exist, not just within your circle, but the total sphere of knowledge.

13 But, how can you know what you don’t know?

14 Can you really say what you won’t find outside of your circle of knowledge.

15 After all, the rest of the sphere could contain anything.

16 It’s impossible to say, you know what you don’t know.

17 Since, an atheist only knows a small percentage of all knowledge…

18 …it’s impossible for an atheist to say God does not exist.

19 An Agnostic says, “Within my knowledge, God does not exist”.

20 However, an Agnostic realizes that outside of his circle, knowledge of God could exist.

21 So, an agnostic doesn’t believe in God, yet doesn’t close the door to the possibility of God.

22 Imagine if I told you a person exists by the name Hugh French. Would you react to that statement as an atheist, agnostic or believer?

23 An atheist would say, “I have no knowledge of Hugh French…. So he doesn’t exist.

24 How many people here are willing to make that statement?

25 An agnostic would say, “I have no knowledge of Hugh French …

26 But, I don’t deny his existence. He may or may not exist since I don’t know everything.

27 How many people here are willing to make that statement?

28 Now, suppose I told you that Hugh French had in his possession a cashier’s cheque for $1,000, Available to anyone that finds him.

29 Would you try to find him? Would you ask of others about him? Would you look for him?

30 Being an atheist in this scenario doesn’t make a lot of sense, does it? And it’s completely unnecessary to be an agnostic.

31 God has a lot more than a million dollars for those that find him. God offers life

32 An abundant life Eternal life Meaning in your life A purpose to your life Eternal life

33 A life of HopeFaithLove

34 Would you try to find him? Would you ask of others about him? Would you look for him?

35 God says, if you will look for Him you will find Him, if you look for Him with all your heart and soul. Deut 4:29
