(another installment in the series of Googled questions)
But the question, “Is there *A* God?” kind of makes God sound like an inanimate object or some vaguely miscellaneous thing out-there-somewhere.
God isn’t just any-old-god. There are lots of any-old-gods around. Anything that people make out to be of ultimate importance in life, things like money or power or sex or nationality, can become gods. Anything people worship on the weekend and ignore the rest of the time is an any-old-god. *The* God is a 24/7/365 Reality.
God isn’t “watching us from a distance” as the old song says. God is closer than we realize. Closer than the air we breathe, which is why the apostle wrote, “in Him we live and move and have our being”.
God also isn’t one of those six-armed deities or fat laughing deities you can buy in a head shop. The real God can’t be bought. The real God is not a thing but a living being. The real God can’t be kept on a shelf and dusted off now and then.
God’s existence is the foundational principle of the universe (and the more we know about the universe, the better we understand its Creator). “Is there a God?” might be better phrased, “Is God?” To which God has already given the answer: “I AM.”
