!00% proof and a lack of Knowledge.
When debating some theists the question arises whether they are 100% sure that there is a god. It was not my question as I know that faith can make anyone 100% sure that i am wearing red lacy g strings (ooopppps did that come out).
So here are there responses there must be a standard refutation for this isnt there:
What would you have to have to prove this statement.
"There is no gold in China"
You would have to scour every square centimeter of the country and then go through all the dirt underneath to prove that statement.
All knowledge, as jorowi said.
But to prove it wrong, all you would need is one little itsy bitsy teeny weenie gold flake SOMEWHERE in that huge country.
You don't need all knowledge to prove it wrong, just one piece.
To say "there is NO GOD" requires ALL knowledge, which we ALL know no one has.
To believe in God requires just a 'piece' of faith no bigger than a mustard seed.
I posted................You decide Grin
Uh, how can you absolutely know there is no God if you don't know everything about the universe? In order for you to say there is no God you would have to know everything about the universe, thus by your own statement, YOU would be God. So I ask you, are YOU absolutely sure there is not God. Personally, I like my odds better than yours. Smiley
Am I absolutely sure? Yes. My faith makes me 100% sure.
Colossians 2:2-4 "That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; in whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words."
You see, the Bible even says that the existence of God is a mystery. However, our faith and belief gives us the assurance, knowledge and wisdom to understand this mystery. Sorry, there's not a logical answer here. The Holy Spirit must reveal this to you. If you choose to ignore or not believe the physical evidence of a creator (read Romans Ch. 1:18-24) then your heart is darkened and only the Holy Spirit can reveal Himself to you.
Thank you for your respectful post and giving me the opportunity to pray for you.
A MESSAGE TO ALL THEISTS:
CRY ME A RIVER
BUILD ME A BRIDGE
BUT IN THE NAME OF NOTHING GET OVER IT.
