Are You Honestly Searching for God?

Is God not found because someone is not really looking, because they have no interest in a God? Is there no God because no God is wanted?

A pastor in Nashville Tn. was asked by the wife to talk to her husband about God. Her husband was a professor at a major University. The pastor agreed and the husband agreed to listen. This was the conversation and this story is true.

Pastor: Why do you not believe in God?

Professor: I have a PHD and I have never seen any evidence of God.

Pastor: How much of the world’s information do you think you possess?

Professor: About one half. (Now the Pastor knew that it was not possible for anyone to know half of the information in the world, but he conceded that point.)

Pastor: What if God is in the half that you do not know?

The pastor than gave the professor an assignment: go home and read the Bible and look for God. The professor like many others realized that he had not been really searching for God. Was God in the half he did not know? Had he let second hand information and corrupted myths about the Bible keep him from an honest search? Since he felt that he neither wanted nor needed God: he had not undertaken an unbiased search for the truth. When he did, he accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior.
