Theology Network – Studying Theology+RS – Dealing with Doubt in a Fallen World
The God of love and light, of grace and compassion, is angry, and he’s revealing his anger against people. Why? Because, despite what we’re told from other sources, God says that the truth about him should be plain to everyone just from looking at his creation.
The world around us declares his glory. It’s as though everything in the universe, from the Orion Nebula to the Mississippi Delta, from the orang-utan to the water vole, from Victoria Falls to Palm Beach, everything is crying out to us, “We have been made by a glorious creator!”
And yet many people look at the world around us, they see “what has been made”, and they say, “There is no maker”.
We are accustomed to thinking that this is a legitimate neutral position. But the Bible tells us that people are suppressing the truth. They would rather reject God and pin their hopes for life on other things than accept that God is there.
