Shouldn’t the lives of the people of God – the people of God themselves – be “evidence for the existence of God”?
I ran into a comment the other day on a blog, on the topic of “the existence of God,” to the effect that “absence of evidence IS evidence of absence, if the evidence should be there.”
And because I wondered what evidence “should” be there that wasn’t, I tried to track that down – unsuccessfully, as it turned out. But in the process I reminded myself how much argument rages on the internet about “the existence of God” and just why I find all that unbearable, and don’t participate in it if I can help it. “Arguments” that don’t address the audience they supposedly address, and chronic talking past one another. What good is any of that?
But. If we say “God is in my life” or words to that effect – shouldn’t our lives be evidence? Aren’t they?
