3 Biblical Reasons Why People Do Not Believe In GOD
The lack of belief in GOD goes much deeper than what is understood on the surface. We will briefly take a look at Biblical information regarding the influence behind this state of mind.
At the heart of it, disbelief in GOD, ultimately comes to not knowing HIM nor having had an interaction with HIM.
There are a number of individuals who only consider what is visible to the natural eyes, as the grounds for what is "real" or existent. This can pose as a problem when applicable to the wind or a virus, as each are very real and existent, but not exactly visible to the naked eye.
When considering the virus, Covid, it is not visible to the naked eye. However, there were significant symptoms that alerted the infected individual of its presence; they could feel it, but could not visibly see it. There are others who not only are incapable of visibly seeing the virus, but they also do not feel any symptoms of its presence. However, this does not make the virus non-existent! Medically and scientifically trained individuals are given the equipment (microscope) to see what cannot be seen with the naked eye. This confirms that even though an object is not seen with the naked eye, the lack of visibility does not automatically justify the conclusion that the object does not exist.
Object Permanence is a developmental psychological term that refers to the state of mind present in infants. It is the understanding that objects continue to exist even when they cannot be seen, heard, or otherwise sensed. The infant's cognitive abilities will develop to eventually grasp the concept that, objects which are not readily available to the senses, do not equate to the object's nonexistence.
When considering this magnificent Being; GOD, most have not seen HIM with their natural eyes, simply because HE has not willed it to be so! HE has the ability to conceal or reveal HIS presence and image to select individuals.
Currently, there are no medical nor scientific equipment available to determine HIS existence. This is the major flaw within the scientific claim that HE does not exist; it CANNOT be scientifically proven! In science you must have the proper equipment to test and validate your claim and findings.
To the eyes that were given the ability to see HIM, and ones who are given the knowledge of the CREATOR, the signs of HIS presence and judgment are made evident and very visible! These unique individuals commune with HIM; they see HIM!...with their natural eyes!!
Those who have not interacted with GOD, nor have been given a true understanding of HIS ways, will presume beliefs and assumptions about HIM that are false, most often leading to a lack of belief in HIM and disrespect towards HIS authority and governance. These individuals have concluded that because they have not been able to see GOD, nor hear, or otherwise physically sense HIM, then HE must not exist!
There are three scripturally aligned reasons as to why an individual would ultimately result in not believing in GOD, two of which may be remedied:
1. They do not have accurate knowledge or a true understanding of who HE is.
The truth is, How can you believe in something you have no knowledge of?
How can you believe in someone you do not know?
You cannot truly make the choice to “believe in GOD” unless you are aware of who HE truly is! In this particular case we are referencing the GOD of Israel. Oftentimes people just assume that they know the GOD of Israel based upon what they've read or learned from others, their belief alone, or assumptions; they have not personally interacted with this Being known as GOD; the CREATOR!
A great number of individuals do not truly believe in the existence of GOD, they say they do, but perhaps they do not believe that this Being communicates with humans or that HE is unreachable. It is equally difficult for those who cannot validate HIS presence with their natural senses, such as seeing HIM with the naked eye, touching, or hearing HIM based on physical elements. Remember, HE alone decides who will have an interaction with HIM.
As noted earlier, presuming that something/someone does not exist simply because you cannot physically sense their presence can prove to be unreliable when determining the truth regarding their existence.
2. A Biblically defined wicked person denies the existence of GOD.
GOD is a symbol of authority and judgment and there are those who reject this. These individuals indulge in what is evil according to HIS Laws; they often lack respect for governing authority and are void of common respect for what is sacred.
It is easy for such a person to consume the deception and denial of the existence of GOD as they psychologically bury the reality of their pending judgment and doom.
The scriptures state that it is the wicked that profess, with their mouth or within their hearts, that there is no GOD:
Psalm 14:1, KJV
"The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good"
Psalm 10:4, KJV
The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.
3. A major reason that a number of people do not believe in GOD is that they have been cursed by HIM because of the wickedness of their hearts.
The ancient scriptures state that HE hides HIS presence from the wicked! The wicked are defined within the scriptures as those who sin against the CREATOR; sin is the transgression/violation of HIS laws and commandments.
1 John 3:4, KJV
"Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law"
WARNING: There are certain sins that you cannot come back from with the GOD of Israel!!
According to the Laws and Commandments of the GOD of Israel, there are certain sins/offenses that are not pardonable. It is important to understand that the interaction with and relationship developed with the GOD of Israel is not one to take lightly with little regard. This interaction is extremely significant and one that carries dire consequences if held with contempt.
When directly referencing the GOD of Israel, there are certain sins that condemn the soul without possible redemption. The ancient scriptures declare that individuals who partake in certain sins will fall under the curse/wrath of the GOD of Israel. This is a well historically documented truth long before the New Testament books were written 2,000 yrs later.
