Skeptics and unbelievers

Posted: October 24, 2010 in Theology

Skepticism is the first step toward truth. God loves skeptics, and he wants to turn them into believers. There is a difference between being a skeptic and being a downright unbeliever. A skeptic is open to truth; an unbeliever is not. Skepticism is honesty; unbelief is stubbornness. Skepticism is looking for light; unbelief is content with darkness. Unbelievers have no intention of changing or believing. They will offer up the well-worn excuses, but the fact of the matter is that even when confronted with evidence to refute their unbelief, they reject it out of hand because they don’t want to believe. On the other hand, a skeptic – an honest skeptic – when presented with the facts, may change. That is because he or she has honest and heartfelt questions about God. – Greg Laurie, WorldNetDaily (more…)
